    First, let me say that this show, is in no way Batman The Animated Series.
    So don't even try to connect the two together because they're practically 2 different shows with different styles, storytelling, etc (though they kept the red skies).

    Now... With that said, I have nothing but good things to say about this show. The atmosphere is dark, gritty, and at times, light hearted. Though some changes such as the appearance of the Joker and Bane compared to their normal appearance was rather odd (and dare I say, even stupid), you'll hate it at first, but eventually you'll soon learn to overlook it and just enjoy the characters as well as the show.

    The writing for what it's worth is great, though a tad bit childish at times, though it's never extreme or cringey. Remember: we live in different times, so I doubt we'll ever get episodes like Mad Love or Heart of Ice or Baby Doll anytime soon. But let me tell you, this show can turn pretty dark at a moments notice. My favorite example is how in a standalone movie involving Dracula and vampires, the Joker and Bats pretty much fight it out... inside a blood bank... Just reading that makes you think to yourself "Wait... This is a kids show?" The scene was super creepy as a kid, but ultimately, pretty impressive and effective when looking back at it now.

    Basically, if you haven't checked out the show, and were interested, you can't go wrong!

    My only real issue is that I think Tom Kenny's voice is annoying, by personally, that's just me.... Oddly enough, it fits the Penguins character pretty well...

I like how they went in a different direction with this show just like they did in Batman Beyond, but it still doesn't reach the heights of Batman: The Animated Series. Full Review »

    An insult to Batman. The show recreates the characters (especially the villains), in a bizarre fashion. There is no excitement like theAn insult to Batman. The show recreates the characters (especially the villains), in a bizarre fashion. There is no excitement like the original BTAS. This the period when cartoon TV just starts targeting Kids.
