Eh...... Jeez. I don't know where to start here folks. I remember seeing this on television in the 70's and thinking it was not very good then. What I did remember was the skit where Robin had to explain to Batman he totaled the Batmobile. But the production quality was even less than the saturday morning Shazam shows at that time. It was just very, very poor. It made "KISS meets the Phantom of the Park" look Oscar worthy in comparison. Now, I think my expectations were pretty grounded. But to say nostalgia got me through this DVD would be an understatement. It barely did. And the whole thing made me understand why this genre was frowned upon back then. In retrospect, it's amazing we ever got a single character to the big screen. It looked like it was concocted for morons. I've seen Target Halloween costumes that looked better.
And what is up with Adam West's Batman cowl? He didn't have it tucked under his cape, so it flared out in a ridiculous fashion around his neck. And why did he repaint the eye brows and have only one white line on either side of the cowl nose? Neither he nor Burt Ward were in any kind of shape to wear the costumes. And Adam wants to complain about being unfairly typecast? Really? My God. No wonder no one would touch him. I wouldn't have either. He looked and acted ridiculous (even in the context it was intended to be). A pale shadow of his former screen persona from the classic '66 show. If I was Adam, I would have fought to keep this show off DVD. Not really anything redeemable here, even for nostalgia's sake.
The people making this show, clearly did not respect the subject matter and were using actors who were obviously between jobs looking for a cheap buck to pay the electric bill. When my kids came into the room, I turned it off. That's how bad it got. There's no explaining this to the younger generation. H*ll, I can't explain it to mine.
