Watch the superhero episode of PBS’s Pioneers of Television

The superheroes-themed episode of PBS’s Pioneers of Television we mentioned Monday is now available online, so you can see for yourself as this week’s installment spans the decades, from Adventures of Superman in the 1950s to The Greatest American Hero in the 1980s.

As you’d expect, the episode contains interviews with the likes of Lynda Carter, Adam West, Julie Newmar, Burt Ward, Lou Ferrigno and Jack Larson. Watch the episode in full below:

I watched this last night and it was actually good especially since nothing else was on at the time.

Oh man this is all kinds of brilliant. They really take the time and care with the actors and the story behind each show. Burt Ward and Adam West seem soooo down to earth…I’d love to grab a couple of beers with them and just chat. Julie Newmar still looks HOT! Oh and Lynda Carter can join us for drinks as well, she was super charming in her interview.
