Don't get confused by Amazon listing this Warner Home Video DVD release as containing "Number of Disks: 1". The original WHV press release promised 2 discs with 13 episodes. If you zoom in on the upper right corner of the artwork for the DVD you will see it also advertises "13 Episodes" & "2 Disks". Amazon does list in the Product Details that the "Run Time: 286 minutes". Now we know that each episode runs 22 minutes in duration and if multiplied by thirteen this gives a product of 286 minutes. Badda, Bing!

Season One: Episodes

1. "Hunted"
2. "Secrets"
3. "Tests"
4. "Safe"
5. "Broken"
6. "Toxic"
7. "Family"
8. "Allies"
9. "Control"
10."Sacrifice"
11."Instinct"
12."Attraction"**
13."Fall"**

Now if you are asking yourself "I don't remember seeing episodes 12 & 13?" That is due to the Cartoon Network sending the show on hiatus after showing "Instinct" with the promise that "Beware the Batman" will resume in January with "Attraction" & "Fall". Tell me it cannot end with the unveiling of...."Spoilers"...????

What happens from there forward has not been foretold yet. Let's just cross our fingers that they are not going to kill the show off this quickly. I am still a bit displeased that "Green Lantern" only lasted the one year. Just when we get invested in the story we get rewarded with a cancellation. Cable television would not be the same without a weekly Batman fix. If they remove this show this soon, what will they replace it with?

As to the show itself I am impressed so far. I am not saying it is great. But there is much potential in the characters and stories arcs.

Format: DVD
"Beware the Batman" is a computer animated, 30 minute series which is inspired by the decades old "Batman: Year One" comic book series written by Frank Miller.

Here, we see Batman as he was in the early days of his career: brilliant but arrogant, inspired but raw, practiced but inexperienced. He is assisted by a more experienced and very patriarchal Alfred the Butler and, ultimately, by a young and equally enthusiastic young woman with a wealth of martial arts training: Katana.

"Beware the Batman" the series stays away from the more generic and "done to death" villains such as The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman, etc., and instead utilizes villains from a later pantheon of rogues such as Anarky (created by Alan Grant) and Mister Pyg (created by G. Morrison) among others.

Here's the big problem with this brilliant series: it airs on Cartoon Network. Yes, the same network that has funded years of useless shows such as "Squidbillies," "Aquateen Hunger Force" and other horrid animated titles that languished for years in their "Adult Swim" cult block of stoner-fugue. This same network has a nasty reputation for unexpectedly killing titles that do not focus only on fart jokes and that is the the case with "Beware the Batman": as of November, 2013, word went out that Cartoon Network decided to pull the plug on this promising series less than six months after it premiered. Why? Only the block of "geniuses" at Williams Street know for sure and I doubt you would be willing to hear the reasons, buried as they would be among a slew of "um," "you know" and "like."

I would highly recommend this series to all fans of Batman.

With this animated series, the creators took a lot of risks. They introduced new villains, who are just as menacing as the old ones, did away with Robin and introduced a new side-kick, which fell more in line with the plot and story than ever before, and re-imagined Alfred, the butler, into an ex-MI6 agent. Which gives a lot more credibility to Bruce Wayne's path to becoming a crime-fighting super-hero. The series got a lot of flak for its reimagining of the DC characters, but I think that is exactly where they excelled. I think it's a shame they stopped the series. They should bring it back. This is definitely worth the money!

What Executive Producer and show-runner Sam Register has done with 'Beware the Batman' is the seemingly impossible. While there is no way to verify this, after watching every episode of the series' "Shadows of Gotham: Season One, Part One," you get the feeling the entire endeavor started this way. He assembled a team of top animation craftsmen and women, and then took them on a journey 75 years into the past. Back to the dark mythos of `The Bat-Man' that artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger created in Detective Comics #27, and upon whom for 9 more issues they pilled on so much mystery, darkness, violence and vulnerability as a human vigilante that the editors of Detective Comics finally freaked out.

'The Bat-Man' had his final solo appearance in Detective Comics #37. What followed was Detective Comics #38 and "The Sensational Character Find of 1940 - Robin the Boy Wonder." The Bat-Man of the stories that filled those 10 issues of Detective Comics from #27, May of 1939 through #37, March of 1940 would not reemerge for 30 years. It was 1970 when writer Denny O'Neil and artist Neil Adams returned "The Batman" to his roots as a solo vigilante/detective with the dark stories "The Secret of the Waiting Graves" and "Paint a Picture of Peril."

This seems the only logical creative explanation as to how Register was able to lead his entire crew behind `Beware the Batman' into making it the most unique and visionary `reboot' of the character in the medium of film and television since Christopher Nolan's `Batman Begins' and Bruce Timm's Emmy winning "Batman: The Animated Series."

"Beware the Batman" has the same type of groundbreaking `vibe' that Timm's 1992 show had when it arrived. First and foremost, this is a series with a story that continues from episode-to-episode.
