In my experience, the Adam West Batman is a show that you love as a serious adventure series when you're a kid, then dismiss as silly and campy when you reach adolescence and want to take everything seriously
Not me.

It never fell out of favour with me at any stage, even when I did the "serious adolescent" thing. Later on from that, I remember it being re-run in the mornings back in the late 80's, so I'd watch it before I went to work. It always put a smile on my face. Especially when Julie Newmar was guest-villainessing.

For me, Batman works best when it's at extremes - totally silly and camp, or totally serious. Therefore I love the 60's stuff and the Nolan movies pretty much equally.
