Although she's adorable, to acknowledge the Adam West era Batgirl in purple is to also say that somewhere out there in Gotham there's also an Adam West styled Batman running around. Nope. Nope nope nope!
Obviously, the DCEU has its head stuck way too far up its own asshole with dark brooding and quasi-religious philosophy to allow for brightly-colored adventure. There may still be a place for camp in live action, though. Probably on TV. Powerless is nearly there, but a lot of the comedy on that show falls flat.
Doing camp right is extremely difficult. The 1960s Batman was like catching lightning in a bottle. If you've ever seen the same production team's 1967 attempt at a Wonder Woman pilot, it's clear that even the grand masters of camp seriously misjudged the comedy on that occasion.
Sorry to upset TallyHo
But is that the two hour movie with Linda Day George and Ricardo Montablan as the villian?
