’60s Batman Series: Where Are They Now?

batman-where-are-they-now

Posted by on

We know, this summer has been Batastic, thanks to IFC’s daily marathons of the ’60s series. But come out of the Batcave for a moment and see what some of the cast has been up to since the show ended.

6. Adam West

Adam West was the first actor to successfully bring The Bat to life (even though he was the third actor to do so), and the only one to portray the character in both TV and film.

After Batman, West popped up on shows like Hart to Hart, Laverne & Shirley, and The Love Boat. Since then, he’s voiced characters in Goosebumps, Animaniacs, Johnny Bravo, and multiple other Batman cartoons. But his most famous role undoubtedly since his turn as The Caped Crusader is as Mayor of Quahog in Family Guy where Adam Plays a crackpot, delusional version of himself.


5. Burt Ward

Burt was Batman’s earnest, do-gooder side kick, Robin/Dick Grayson. Undoubtedly his greatest contribution to the show and pop culture is the endless stream of Robin exclamations where he excitably shouts, “Holy… Batman, what do we do now?”

After losing the lead in The Graduate to Dustin Hoffman, Burt has mostly had roles in a number of budget films like the classic Beach Babes From Beyond and Assault of The Party Nerds 2: The Heavy Petting Detective (no, that is shockingly not a porn title).


4. Burgess Meredith

Meredith was already an esteemed stage and movie actor by the time he appeared as the Penguin. He also made a brief cameo as the character in the 1968 episode of The Monkees entitled “The Monkees Blow Their Minds.”

After Batman, Burgess went on to receive multiple awards and nominations, including an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor. But it was his Oscar-nominated role as Mickey Goldmill in Rocky that he’s most remembered for. The acting legend died in 1997.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
