Article by Jarrett Kruse

I remember the first time I had watched the live-action Batman TV show starring Adam West & Burt Ward. I was five years old and was completely enthralled at this age of the Caped Crusader. I wanted any and all toys having to do with anything Batman. Now, through the magic of technology, I had a TV show and something to record episodes I missed on.
