Alternate Versions

When this pilot was re-aired in 2003 on the Trio network, a few cuts were made to fit in the 22 minute time slot. The biggest difference was the deletion of the epilogue in which Lookwell announces to his class that Jason and Miss Royster were sent to jail for stealing the car. Then, he introduces his two new students who are the Samoan prisoners that Lookwell met earlier in jail. Finally, he shows the class another scene from "Bannigan". See more »

Adam West's best work yet!
6 June 2001 | by obiwan2005See all my reviews

Of course every one knows him as the campyist Batman ever. But this is 1,000 better than Batman. West plays a retired T.V. detective who, 20 years after his show is cancelled, decides to enter the Private Investigator business for real.( he uses a honorary crimefighter badge he got in 1972). He goes on these zainy escapades trying to solve mysteries. You got to watch it to appriciate it. The executive Producer was Conan O'Brian.
