Garlin: God, no! First off, ...
Adam West, star of a new Fox network promotional campaign called "What's Adam West Watching," couldn't be more comfortable with comedy. This is the man, after all, who played one of the darkest crime fighters for campy laughs. "They have the Dark Knight, OK? I'm the bright knight, if you will," says the star of the '60s series Batman.
The 81-year-old actor's cool deadpan still serves him well in duties ranging from mayor of Quahog on Family Guy to the new promos, in which he tells viewers which Fox shows he loves, with much comedy along the way. TVGuide.com recently caught up with West...

Last week, 1966s perfectly preserved Batman: The Movie hit Blu-Ray and the man himself, Adam West, was awesome enough to chat with me about life as the classic Caped Crusader and spill the beans on his greatest foe. Damian Holbrook TV Guide: OK, so I have been a fan since I was a kid. You are the classic Batman
Adam West: Like Classic Coke. [Laughs] Makes a lot of people sick, ruins your teeth, ruins your stomach.TV Guide: But its so good! And I love that you havent turned your back on the past. A lot of actors dismiss their defining roles.West: Is that OK?TV Guide: Definitely.West: Good. [Laughs] I reasoned many years ago that not many actors get a chance, as you indicated, to play a defining role that kind of becomes their signature, if you will. And because I got that with Batman, I am one of the few, so why not embrace it? It makes a lot of people happy and that pleases me as well.TV Guide: And I am not ashamed to admit that Im one of those...

Since the TV-on-DVD craze went mainstream around 2000-2001, one of the burning, unanswered questions has been "when will episodes from the Adam West version of Batman finally come to DVD?" The classic, campy series has a ton of fans, and lots of rumors surround the reasons behind its absence from the DVD market.One popular rumor (possibly the most popular, especially on the internet) is that the hold-up is between Fox and Warner Brothers. But in a June 2006 interview with members of the Home Theater Forum website, executives from Warner Home Video stated that they have nothing to do with any sort of hold-up for Batman episodes. "This is an issue between DC (Comics) and Fox. Fox owns the series."For their part, Fox has told us "We are continuing to work on participations issues and resolve, so that we might be able to bring it out. The issue is that there are several entities that have rights to this particular series. The contract language didn't clearly specify home entertainment....

TV Guide: Six years is a long time for a sitcom.George Lopez: It is a long time, man. This has not been done before, where you have a Latino actor lead a situation comedy past 100 episodes. Chico and the Man didn't do 100 episodes. I Love Lucy did, but it was Lucy's show. Desi was the costar.
TV Guide: It's rumored this may be the final season.Lopez: That's been rumored aft
Question: On the Batman TV series, every Batman and Robin wanted to slide down the Batpole, they would flip up the head of a bust just outside the hidden door. Who was the bust of?
Answer: Holy setup, Kevin! Why do I get the feeling you know the answer to this and are simply trying to stump me? I usually avoid such questions because I like to help out those who really need to know something, but this time I'll bite since I grew up with that show and have a soft spot for it.
To gain access to the Batcave, either Bruce Wayne (Adam West) or Dick Grayson (Burt Ward) would push a button in a bust of William Shakespeare.
Here's a twist on the increasingly popular TV reunion: Legendary dynamic duo Adam West and Burt Ward — who became pop culture icons via their respective roles as Batman and Robin in the classic '60s series Batman — are reteaming for an upcoming CBS special that is neither a clip-filled retrospective nor a cheesy sequel chronicling the superheroes' much-later years. No, Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt is a tongue-in-cheek comedy adventure in which West and Ward, playing themselves, stumble upon a diabolical plot to steal the original Batmobile from a charity benefit. Talk about silly!
"We decided to do something that was fresh, innovative," says West, "a modern-day caper with [me] and Burt and maybe with an occasional allusion to or reference to some of
