    I don’t love any but probably Daredevil. Batman Animated if cartoons counted even though I don’t care for any other DC animated show by the same group, interestingly enough. I get great pleasure in Batman ‘66, but late second season and most of season three are brutal. First season and first of of season two are great mindless fun!

    The Gifted, followed by Arrow. I specifically want to see Runaways, though.

    Without hesitation, Daredevil. Both seasons are great. I prefer season 1, but I love both either way.

    Batman for me. I grew up on Adam West. His Batman got me into comics in the first place.

    Haven't watched season 2 yet but Legion is currently far and away my favourite.


    Also, Misfits. Loved that show.

    Batman: The Animated Series. For live action I will go with Daredevil, followed by the Adam West Batman series. Depends on if I'm in the mood for something serious or something more fun.

    Out of every poll I’ve ever voted in, this is the easiest. Daredevil by a country mile.

    Legion, easily. If this show didn't exist, it'd be Daredevil, but thanks to the mind of Noah Hawley...yeah, Legion, without a question.

    As my sig suggests, I'm Team Flash. It's delved into concepts and characters that I didn't think I'd ever see in live action.

    Daredevil. [/thread]

    Seriously though Season 1 of Jessica Jones gave it a run for its money. Then Season 2 happened.

    With tongue firmly in cheek, but never without a sense of morality and sending young viewers good messages through its story telling, the 60's Batman show is a classic that still is ingrained in pop culture and revered in the Batman fan base, too. Apart from saving the Batman comics from cancellation, making household names out of Batman, Robin Penguin, Joker etc, it is also notable for bringing Catwoman out of limbo and a significant threat again. It turned the Riddler from a one shot villain into one of Batman's A-list enemies.

    The show was like a comic book page brought to life. The villains, their hideouts, the outlandish death traps at the end of the first part of every two parter each week, the fab Bat vehicles, the Batcave.....this show did it all. Some of the biggest names in Hollywood clamored to be on this show as a villain. The demand got so big that to accommodate all the requests they came up with that scenario where Batman and Robin would be climbing up the side of a building and some notable face would stick their head out of a window and converse with them briefly. Adam West's Batman is iconic, and he is still to this day the most faithful adaption of Batman ever put on screen. Burt Ward's youthful energy and enthusiasm compliment's West's Batman. The supporting cast were wonderful. Alan Napier's faithful and resourceful Alfred, Neil Hamilton's eternally Bat phone reaching Gordon, the Irish brogue spewing Chief O'Hara, sweet blissfully ignorant Aunt Harriet, and Yvonne Craig's sassy ass kicking Batgirl in season 3.

    Of course the villains were top notch. Cesar Romero's Joker with the hilarious feature of his mustache under the make up, who's laugh was infectious, and manic energy just brought the campy Joker to life big time. Burgess Meredith's scenery chewing, waddling, sqwaking Penguin, who could deliver every line with menacing glee while having a cigarette holder constantly clenched in his teeth, and wield a gas and gun umbrella so suavely. Julie Newmar's sultry, seductive Catwoman who in Adam West's own words caused curious stirrings in his utility belt. Frank Gorshin, his maniacal performance as Riddler was so good he made the character an A-list villain. And that laugh. That Riddler laugh has never been done better since. The show even turned out some of its own memorable self made rogues. King Tut, Egghead and False Face to name a few. Then there was the likes of Mr. Freeze and The Mad Hatter, all wonderfully done by great actors like George Sanders, David Wayne and Eli Wallach.

    Its a show that keeps on giving, and will forever live on, IMO.

    My vote goes to Daredevil. It's been great so far and with the likelihood of Fisk again playing a major part in season 3 I think it will continue to be great.

    The 1990 Flash. A very entertaining show, which looked amazing, had great performances, and judges the tone perfectly.

    John Wesley Shipp gave one of the best superhero performances ever - he had exactly the right amount of bravado, heroism, comedy and charisma, and he looked awesome in the costume, which was not only movie-quality, it was better than any subsequent live-action Flash costume.

    It's a fantastic and iconic show, and I'd argue that Adam West remains the best live-action Bruce Wayne. However, it is very repetitive - if you've seen one episode, you've seen them all. By the third series, all they could do was keep getting sillier.

    Have you ever read about what Shipp went through with his costume? The man was dedicated to his art for sure.

    Jessica Jones, first season was great and the second season was good, over Daredevil where the second season was only good for 4 or 5 episodes.

    The Batman tv show was my first introduction at the age of 6 to the greatest fictional character ever created.

    Maybe some of the other shows on this list are objectively better, but for that reason alone it will always be the best superhero tv show ever :up:
