Ironically, Batman: The Animated Series looks better in stills than it does in motion. The artists fail to stylize the movements of the characters to match the dramatic settings, as Genndy Tartakovsky and his crew did in Samurai Jack. Batman uses sophisticated computers to combat the well-known villains--the Joker, the Penguin, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman--as well as some less celebrated baddies: Manbat, Clayface, The Mad Hatter. The bad guys cram a lot of plotting and scheming into each 22-minute episode, but the violence is kept to a broadcast standards minimum.
The Dark Knight's First Knight easily ranks as the most interesting of the extras. Producers Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski recount the genesis of the series, and show their mini-pilot, which is more violent and more fully animated. If the complete episodes had matched the pilot, the series would have been much more exciting. (Unrated, suitable for ages 8 and older: violence, mild grotesque imagery) --Charles Solomon

Not just the best Batman series, this is my favorite show period. Kevin Conroy is a voice acting god, he's perfect. I love everything about it and season one is glorious.Published 24 days ago by Hannah

|Digital Version Having Different Intro||
Well, this is almost a year late, but the intro for the Animated Series on Amazon is the one from the new Batman/Superman Adventures when the show ran on Kids WB.

|Warner bros customer service?||
If anyone finds out how to reach Warner Bros for customer service issues I'd like to know as well. I recently bought this item, new and still shrink-wrapped, and it was missing the fourth disc altogether. Thanks!

The DVDs are a decent deal. With the increasing demand for Blu-ray I'd expect these to start coming to the HD scene within a year. That doesn't necessarily mean we'll be buying it next Christmas.... but one can hope!
