Review this tv show
Aug 13, 2013This show is a nice change of pace from some of the previous animated series involving Batman. Some vocal fans of Batman's animated adventures often denounce a new Batman when they realize that it isn't Batman: The Animated Series. However, considering that the Batman from BTAS essentially appeared in animation throughout the 90's and into the mid 2000's in the Justice League, it's nice to have a series that focuses some attention on different conceptions of Bruce Wayne, Alfred, and a number of lesser known Batman villains. Of course, it's not enough to simply be different. A show must also be compelling, and concerning the inclusion of some of the lesser known villains, the show does a pretty good job of taking some admittedly outlandish characters and making them seem compelling. Because of this point alone, I think Batman fans should embrace this show (or, at least give it a chance) because it is attempting to elevate the status of some villains rarely seen in animation, which if done correctly, can strengthen future animated series involving Batman. I will admit that it does take a bit of time to get comfortable with the CGI style of the show, but once you get passed that, the CGI medium allows show creators to feature some compelling action sequences that might be more difficult to pull off with other animation styles. Another important aspect of the show that I think is well done is the focus on Batman's detective abilities. Other series and video games have done the detective thing well, but it is an aspect that is often overlooked. It's nice to see it featured here. Bottom line, though, is that this show is fun to watch and it is nice to see some new players featured.… Expand
Aug 2, 2013Its nice but not how i expected to be. I loved the way how they changed how every character looks like, especially Alfred. And i think this show is for the villains that were in the comic book, and didn't have a chance to be in a movie or a show, so they are giving all of them a chance to be in this show. The graphics are amazing, I loved the way how they introduced the villains, And the Action Scenes are pretty nice and i heard that there will be more combat fighting than guns and stuff. Its pretty good.… Expand
Continuing Warner Bros. Animation’s welcome strategy of aiming its DC-derived animation at comics-loving adults as well as tykes, the writing is crisp and even above-their-heads literate.
