Being a fan at SWM for a few years, but not making any posts, I thought I would make this one count.

Many web portals are reporting the Adam West Batman TV series from 1966-68, after years of legal hang-ups between Fox and Warner Home Video, will finally get released on DVD. When is still up in the air. Talk show host and bat-fan Conan O'Brien was the first to report this via Twitter

Very excited @WBHomeEnt is releasing the Batman '66 Complete TV Series in 2014! The seat smells like Adam West: t.co/cqWjlpW1Gn

And that means, Batgirl played by Yvonne Craig gets a chance to be seen by perhaps a new generation. Even DC Comics is reporting on it.

Here in the US on the MeTV service, mainly on digital TV subchannels, Batman is seen Saturdays at 7:00 EST, now followed by Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter) at 8:00 EST. Check the link for details on how to get MeTV.

I didn't think of the Craig angle. Good catch.

If you like these kind ofs superheroines, i would argue shes the best ever at it in live action. The show is obviously a silly comedy, but shes good at finding an angle of being not in and on the joke, but aware of the joke. And taking the action seriously. More then anyone else on the show she was good at looking as if she cared about what was going on, which made her scenes a lot of fun.
