TVLine Items: Watch Adam West's Powerless, GH Star Returns and More

One of Adam West‘s final roles before his death last week is coming to a TV computer near you.

DC All Access has made the late actor’s episode of Powerless, in which the one-time TV Batman guest-stars as Wayne Industries chairman Dean West, available to stream for a limited time.

NBC pulled the freshman comedy from its primetime schedule before the installment could air, but you can now press PLAY above to watch the never-before-seen half-hour.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Kirsten Storms will return to General Hospital to reprise her role as Maxie, according to a photo posted on the ABC soap’s Instagram on Friday:

* All four seasons of Heroes and the event series Heroes Reborn will be available on the streaming network Crackle, beginning Thursday, July 13.

* Spike TV’s comedic tribute One Night Only: Alec Baldwin will feature the following guests (with more TBA at a later date): Julianne Moore, Tracy Morgan, Kate McKinnon, Jane Krakowski and Jack McBrayer. The special airs Sunday, July 9 at 9/8c.

* Viola Davis’ production company is developing the six-part true-crime documentary series The 4% (working title) for ABC, our sister site Deadline reports. The project follows two inmates who have been on Death Row for two decades and re-examines the evidence in their cases, using new forensic technologies.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Glad Kirsten is gonna be back on GH! Missed seeing Maxie!

      Seriously – and someone has got to save Nathan from Amy!

      • MLO says:

        I kind of like the direction Amy’s character is taking. She’s a talented actress and deserves more than the drivel GH has been giving her. Let her be a real person instead of the nosy, whiny busybody at the hospital. She’s a beautiful girl and she deserves to have a relationship with someone – even Nathan. So what if she’s plus-sized? And before anyone starts citing the fact that they hooked Epiphany and Milo up, you NEVER see them together in their relationship. It’s all off-screen, like it’s taboo. It’s like GH tried to be very forward-thinking with this relationship, but ended up being ashamed of it in the end.

    Glad DC Access made Adam West’s guest star appearance on Powerless available to watch. I was looking forward to see him on the show before NBC cancelled the show. Glad I can watch the episode now!

  3. The studios should honor the good faith those of us who pre-order iTunes season passes of canceled series like POWERLESS showed by making all the unaired episodes available to us. Sometimes that happens, but often we’re just out the money. It’s a risk we assume, I know, but every time I pay $20 or $30 and end up with just 6 or 8 episodes, I’m more reluctant to do so again.

    Thanks for sharing the news about this episode. I think it epitomized what was wrong with the show: it had some good ideas and a few funny meta lines, but it just wasn’t funny enough. I don’t know if sticking with original premise wpuld have made a difference if the writin wasn’t there.

    There’s already a Netflix show called 3%, so The 4% should have to find another name.

    The Adam West Powerless episode screened weeks ago overseas. I think it was one of the better episodes the show did. I guess audiences just don’t like “nice” humour.

    I’m grateful to DC All Access for posting this episode of Powerless without any geo-blocking! It’s great that the world can watch Adam West’s final performance!
