When I was a very young, I grew up in front of the television. Not because my parents insisted on it, but because I was a bonafide TV addict. Growing up, I knew two things about television. One was that Adam West’s “Batman” was a great series, and that “Green Hornet” was the much more sophisticated and entertaining counterpart that was disgustingly underrated.
I didn’t grow up with either series since I was born in 1983, but back when local networks played classic programming during the day, “Batman” was a surefire choice of entertainment after school for many years. “Same Bat Time! Same Bat Channel!” always kept me coming back to see how Batman or Robin would get out of a jam. During that time, I fondly recall watching “Green Hornet” on VHS and found it to be much more entertaining and exciting.
