Anyway before I become a hypocrite...
Batman Beyond is my childhood. I religiously sat up on Saturday mornings waiting to hear the unique opening soundtrack. I loved this series as a kid and now that I've bought the set I expected it to not live up to my little childhood memories. But guess what? It was even better! Older now I see the social commentary going on the aspects of society that is played upon and the witty banter betwen Terry and Bruce is just as good. And the trademark action you may ask? Still there and still breathtaking to watch.
So whether you are an avid fan of Batman, a kid in an adult's body, or even just a parent that doesnt want their kid watching this mindnumming garbage that sits on the wonderful lines and transmission feeds of cable and satelite, pick this up, I doubt you will regret it.
Don't get me wrong, I really like Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and Young Justice has some potential. But the majority of today's shows are mindless and way too little kid-oriented.
Now, that being said, when I bought Batman Beyond Seasons 1-3, it was a breath of fresh air. I hadn't seen the show since I was a kid, and I was amazed by how dark and gritty it was (very much like the old Batman: TAS).
Terry McGinnis is a high-schooler (spoiler alert) who, after his father is murdered, takes on the mantle of the bat. What begins as revenge eventually turns into redemption (Terry was once in Juvenile Hall), and finally, Terry realizes that it's his destiny to be the dark knight.
It's like he says during the series pilot, "I... AM... Batman!"
I'm a huge fan of Kevin Conroy, and he does an excellent job as an aging and very cranky Bruce Wayne. And Will Friedle does a fantastic job as Terry, perfectly capturing the sound of an angsty teenager with the weight of the world on his shoulders.
Here's what you need to do: Buy Batman Beyond, Seasons 1-3 (DC Comics Classic Collection), and when you absolutely love it, check out Batman: The Animated Series, Vol. 1. You will not regret it.
The problem that I found with this series was that I believe they cut some episodes out. I remember when the series was on television, and there was an episode with Victor Freeze. When watching the series, there was no episode that had him in it. I was disappointed, because I know that this episode was aired.
Overall I would say this is worth buying, but the loss of at least one episode is a little disappointing.
While the show was playing on my PS3 i submerged the system in the bathtub and slammed it with a hammer for several minutes before attempting to put it in a rear-naked choke as it thrashed and rolled much like gators do, still played just fine. Highly recommend.

An outstanding animated series that has aged very gracefully. The DVD quality is excellent, but a quality Blu-ray release would be very welcome nonetheless.Published 8 months ago by sin-jun-smythe
