Live-Action Batman Series

With Gotham just starting, I was wondering how people think it is stacking up next to the 1960's Batman and the 2002 Birds of Prey series?

But thinking of the three, for me, I find that it is almost hard to compare the 1960's Batman to BOP or Gotham, even though I've only seen the 1960's movie. The 60's series was such a comedic, campy on the character, it's almost like trying to compare Star Trek to As The World Turns. One's a science-fiction show, the others a soap opera.

It's impossible to compare shows that are over with a show that's just starting.

Yeah, two weeks in is way too early to assess a show's merits.

Besides, only one of the three listed "Batman series" was actually about Batman. So it's not really a fair comparison in that sense either.

Just to be unfair and impossible, I chose Batman. Mostly because it's the only one that's primarily about Batman.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'

^Well, at this point, there's no contest. Birds of Prey was deeply flawed, and Gotham hasn't been around long enough to prove itself.

I'm going to expand the question parameters to "live-action shows about masked vigilantes" and declare that there are three valid answers: Disney's 1950s Zorro, the 60s Batman, and the current Arrow. Only selections from these three progams will be considered valid opinions.

Thank you for your cooperation, and have a righteously vengeful day.

I picked "Batman" based on the fact that it's the only choice that's actually a Batman show.

If you ask about the best love action show set in Gotham I still pick Batman, it was a good show, Birds of Prey was only okay and Gotham has barely started and what I've seen doesn't look appealing.
