Holy Geeky Documentary Batman! PBS’ Pioneers of Television Takes on Superheroes. [VIDEO]

Watch Superheroes on PBS. See more from Pioneers of Television.

I’m a low-level documentary-a-holic (shut up, it’s a thing), and when the documentaries are geeky it’s even better. And yeah, this episode of PBS’s Pioneers of Television, about the superhero shows of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, is narrated by Ryan Seacrest. But I can let that slide if I’m watching Lynda Carter, Julie NewmarAdam West, Burt Ward, Lou Ferrigno and more talk about the history of superheroes on TV for an hour.

It’s Like Cosplay For Your Eyes: Elaborate Eye Make-Up For Geeks

We’ve featured the work of phantasmagorically talented makeup artist Jangsara here before. We can’t help it, every time we come across more of her work we spend a good fifteen minutes just pawing at our computer screens, contemplating whether it makes any sense at all to go on a MAC shopping spree to try these looks on our own eyes, even with our less-than-steady hands. Her work is always good for filling our daily quotient of Pretty Things to Look At, and these recent efforts are no different. Click through to witness some of her geek-inspired eye-art, and make your peepers a little bit jealous.

Could Batman Make His TV Comeback Courtesy Of The CW’s Arrow?

Most of us remember the impression Batman left the last time he starred in a live-action television show. Adam West’s portrayal will never be forgotten but in the wave of Christopher Nolan’s more realistic (and highly successful) take on the character in film, could Batman ever be brought back to the small screen? According to the CW’s Arrow writer Marc Guggenheim, the answer is yes.

Val Kilmer Says Batman Got “Too Cute”

We all have different preferences. Especially when it comes to Batman. You’ve got your Adam West lovers, Tim Burton fans, Joel Schumacher mostly haters, and Christopher Nolan devotees.

Julie Newmarr Purrrrrfers the Batman Series She Did With Adam West, Thankyouverymuch

Julie Newmarr thinks that Batman these days is just too scowly and dark. The first woman to play Catwoman on TV (Lee Meriwether played her in the 1966 movie), Newmarr longs for the days when the Bat was a light-hearted, silly crimefighter played by Adam West who had fights festooned with comic book-style violence bubbles. And while she thinks Anne Hathaway will do a fine job in the role, she had a few choice words about some other latter-day Catwoman portrayers.

Don’t Blink! Witness William Shatner and Adam West — Acting Together! [Video]

Back in 1964, before they were TV’s Batman and Captain James Tiberius Kirk, Adam West and William Shatner shared camera time in a failed pilot for ABC called Alexander the Great. It was meant to be a “buddy comedy” set during the Battle of Issus with Shatner in the role of Alexander (the Great) and West as his “compatriot” Cleander. So as not to let one diva outshine the other, the plan was to let each star play the lead in alternating episodes. West says that it was “one of the worst scripts I have ever read and it was one of the worst things I’ve ever done,” and Shatner was “deeply, deeply, horrendously disappointed when this series didn’t sell.” Let us now mourn what could have been.
