HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (NEWS)

Yeah yeah I know, this is a horror blog, but I had to give a big Batday salute to one of my all-time favorite actors as he turns 79 years young today. You keep on being a jerk at celebrity conventions Mr. West and I'll keep on lovin' ya anyway, have a good one!

Here is a link to Lookwell, a very funny pilot Adam West did, written by Conan O'Brien.

I've easily watched this pilot 40 times, it just gets better and better. There's no conceivable reason why this shouldn't have been picked up as a series.

Speaking of Conan, I was equally bummed when Andy Barker PI got cancelled too... how dumb can people be?

Agreed. Andy Richter can't get a break with a tv show. He also had one on fox called Andy Richter Controls the Universe, or something like that.

Many great shows don't get a second season. One of my favorites is The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.

Should we send him a bomb he just can't get rid of?

Actually Adam West does have a place on a horror blog, according to IMdb his first feature film (though uncredited) was in Voodoo Island ('57) starring Karloff! He was also in Robinson Crusoe on Mars, The Outer Limits, Night Gallery, Curse of the Moonchild, Eyes of Charles Sand (one of my faves), One Dark Night (another fave) etc... and let's not forget all the times he battled eggheaded Vincent Price!
