Great Characters and great storylines and great animation, love it.
Zalman Livshiz
There was also an episode where The Riddler recounts his origin, and the excellent season ending two-parter with Martian Manhunter and an alien invasion.

While I am a huge fan of most of the DC Animated series and films, this is easily my favourite of the Batman shows.

Season 4 finds THE BATMAN at its most accessible and fan friendly. Lots of folks (and I was one of 'em) weren't too enthused with this younger Dark Knight version when he first came out in 2004. So, with The Batman - The Complete First Season (DC Comics Kids Collection) having left me and others in a lukewarm and sulky state, I never thought the series would last to a fourth season, let alone a 5th, which is just around the corner. But, perhaps because of the dearth of animated superhero stuff on TV - what with only the occasional animated film released by Marvel and DC, leaving us with LEGION OF SUPERHEROES (enjoyable) and FANTASTIC FOUR (kinda shady) as the other viewing options - well, I've started watching THE BATMAN more and more.

There's been a decided upgrading in quality to the episodes. Also, the additions of Batgirl (debuted in Season 3 and now officially in the Bat family) and of Robin (debuts this season) provide a more consistent element of levity and color to the show, nicely offsetting ol' Batface's grim and dour tendencies. In fact, for me, the show's trump card are these kid crimefighters, whose presence and bicker-and-banter act enliven things tremendously. Great sibling rivalry unfolding here. I find myself having a change of heart regarding this series. I like it now.

As the seasons progress, the show continues to serve up increased depth to the storyline and deeper character development. In addition to Robin, making their debuts to the series are Lucius Fox, the new Clayface, Black Mask, and Harley Quinn.

Like so many others who watched this show intially, I was not impressed. One reason was that I had a problem with the way some of Batman's rogues gallery were drawn or made over(especially The Joker and Bane). The one redeeming makeover was The Penguin. I really liked how he was portrayed to be just as formidible as he was vain. But overall it was a show that I would occasionally watch. But as the second and third seasons premiered and progressed, I was pleasantly surprised. But it was Season Four, where everything shifted into fifth gear.

The make or break move for this show was how they were going to implement Robin into this show after it was announced that he
would be introduced in season four. I must say that Robin's introduction exceeded my expectations. I thought that The Boy Wonder would have a 2 part episode that would provide his origin and drag out over 67 yrs of history. Not so. The opening episode "A Matter of Family" not only summed up everything in 30 mins or less but with Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series,Batman Beyond,Justice League and Justice League Unlimited)providing the voice of Robin's father John Grayson, it seemed like he was passing the vocal torch of Batman to the current voice of The Dark Knight, Rino Romano, who himself has evolved vocally throughout the course of this series.

OK, so unlike several others here, I liked THE BATMAN from the beginning. Even so, I have to say that I think it's gotten even better over the years. As of this writing, I haven't seen any of season 5 (I prefer to wait for the DVD's so I can get 'em all at once), but season 4 is by far the best season yet.

Hardcore Batfans have traditionally been slow to warm-up to the "sidekick" characters of Robin and Batgirl. And I'll admit I was initally reluctant to embrace either of them in ANY incarnation of Batman. So imagine my surprise when, after only 3 or 4 episodes, I found that the interplay between Batgirl and the Boy Wonder is among my favorites things about this season. They're really just kids, after all, and their good-natured sibling rivalry is handled with wit and intelligence.

There's not really a bad episode in the bunch, but I'll mention a few favorites: "Strange New World" calls to mind the excellent feature-length Batman vs. Dracula and is among the most exciting episodes of the entire series; "Artifacts" and the "The Joining" (easily the best episode) feed fans' appetite for glimpses of the future with appearances by Nightwing, Oracle, and the Justice League; and "Two of a Kind" re-imagines Harley Quinn for a new generation of Batman fans. Even the recurring rogues' gallery gets some standout stories: We get more background on the Riddler in "Riddler's Revenge," and Bruce Wayne's old friend Ethan Bennett (a.k.a. Clayface) gets a chance at redemption in "Clayfaces."

Not much in the way of extras this time around, just a brief featurette on season 4, and a preview of the upcoming direct-to-video Justice League movie.

If you still haven't discovered this high-octane reinterpretation of the Batman mythology, season 4 is a great place to start. Highly recommended.
