Batman, The: The Complete First Season (DVD)

In Gotham City, where shadows run long and deep, lives The Batman. He's in his mid-20s and just finding his way as protector, defender and Caped Crusader, while maintaining his public persona as billionaire bachelor Bruce Wayne. This animated series picks up a few years after the 2005 theatrical release Batman Begins. This younger Batman confronts updated versions of familiar foes, meeting each member of his classic rogues' gallery for the first time. With the likes of The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, The Riddler and Man-Bat, among others, the Dark Knight takes his war on crime to the next level, employing a new arsenal of experimental Bat-Gadgets and an amped-up Batmobile, all linked by an advanced remote-controlled invention he dubs the "BatWave." In season one, join the most complex and intriguing character in comic book history for action-packed adventures that test the limits of this legendary character's extraordinary physical prowess and super-sleuthing skills.

Format: DVD
This set collects the first 13 episodes of The Batman, the newest incarnation of the Dark Knight. Warner Home Video has finally wised up, ditched the meager single discs and given fans and collectors an affordable way to get this series on dvd.

But wait...are there any fans and collectors? The general bat-fan will tell you this show sucks, while the small but vocal die-hards will pump The Batman for all its worth. This is a very difficult show to rate. Not only does it feel like Batman as envisioned by corporate focus groups, but the general writing is way below par compared to the classic Batman: Animated series.

In my opinion, these problems are mostly confined to the first season. This is definitely the show at its worst, and the newer seasons have been much more kinetic and entertaining. It's painful here to watch Bruce eat nachos and cast opera aside for bubblegum pop. It's painful to watch him resort to an endless array of bat-gadgets to take down foes. But the show has occasional moments of brilliance. When Batman slips into a coma after being thrashed by Bane, there's a very poignant look at the night of his parents' murder. The villain designs, wacky and grotesque as they may be, are fiercely original and fun if you go in with the right expectations. And the season finale, written by Gargoyles creator Greg Weisman, brings the show to a near-BTAS level with a brand new interpretation of Clayface. It's really worth checking out.

Again, this is a difficult recommendation. Season 1 is mostly weak, and I can't blame anyone for shunning it. However, the second season onwards is definitely worth looking into. I at least give kudos to WB for giving us The Batman in a season set that has more appeal to adult collectors. For those on the fence, check out season 2 when/if it is eventually released, then go back and see if you'd like season 1 for completion purposes. In the meanwhile, rent for the Clayface finale.

If you're going to have any chance of liking this show, you have to completely forget about "Batman: The Animated Series." BTAS was, is, and will remain one of TV's crowning achievements in animation. This new series doesn't aspire to anything that lofty-it's kid-vid. Judge it that way.

I'm 40 years old with a 10-year-old superhero-loving daughter. We watch the show together. We understand this show is a new riff. It has something of an anime influence, and it works. The show looks awesome. The theme music, by The Edge of U2, is very cool. Let's look at the characters. (BTW-don't look for Comissioner Gordon, Batgirl, Robin, Bullock, Montoya-they're not here. At least, not yet)

Batman/Bruce Wayne: He's young, he's just starting, he makes mistakes, and he's still having fun.

Alfred: One of the best parts of this show. Really captures the complex fellow that Alfred is.

Villains on this disc:

Joker: A Joker who is Bruce's equal in hand-to-hand combat? Neither my daughter or I care for this take on Batman's biggest foe.

Bane: Interesting version. Tad over-the-top, but what the heck. The episode does highlight Bruce's brainpower over brawn. The introduction of Rupert Thorne is a nice touch.

Penguin. This one flat-out-works. You really get a feel for what makes Oswald Cobblepot tick. They take the high-society-wannabee aspect of Paul Williams from BTAS, and add a true sense of menace.

Other villains from later in the series:

Catwoman: Get the costume right. My daughter and I call her Mousewoman.

Mr. Freeze: Worst of all the reimaginings. They've taken the most incredible tragic character from BTAS (and the DC Universe in general) and reduced him to a common jewel thief. Pathetic.

Format: DVD
Let's start with what I do like. The style of the cartoon is actually pretty good. At first I was a little turned off by the whole "X-treme" Batman, but considering this is Bruce Wayne in his younger days I think it works.

However, the characters are reduced to nothing. Batman has absolutely no edge to him. In the original series we got to know his past and saw him really struggle with the death of his parents, and lets be honest, the best thing about Batman is that he's the first superhero who's given a real motive. In this series the death of his parents are brough up a few times, but as a driving force it's generally ignored.

The villians are all one-note characters. In the original series each villian had some kind of conflict. It wasn't just good versus evil; it was about that in-between grey. The Man-Bat is just some mad scientist. Mr. Freeze is just some jewel thief. They're run of the mill pedestrian characters. The only exception is Clay Face. Lets hope this new version of Clay Face is pointing to a new direction to the series. Maybe the writers will wise up and give us some good stories. Until then I'll be watching the DVDs of the original Batman: The Animated Series.

The first season of The Batman is weak but not as weak as some of the seasons to come. Sure season 1 has problems but it wasn't that bad of a season. Let's jump in!

The animation (and this goes for subsequent seasons as well) always looked great in this series. The landscape, the fight sequences and character design. Though done in an anime-esque style (reminding me a lot of Jackie Chan Adventures), the characters still had a resemblance (vague for some characters however; ex. Cluemaster) when I compare it to the actual anime seen in Gotham Knight. And while its not the "classic" Batman look that the nineties animated series had, I grew to like the designs, except for one and that was Catwoman. Her costume didn't even resemble a cat, well the mask part anyway. She looked like a mouse with overgrown ears! Batman/Bruce Wayne and Alfred have almost no change done to them whatsoever when compared to other designs, though Batman's cape is a little longer but it does look good when he's jumping about the buildings. The Joker design startled me at first and I was a little off put by his wardrobe in the first episode but by the time he reappeared again, he was back in his traditional (for this show anyway) outfit (though the straightjacket look would reappear one more time in season 2) and I was happy. Though for the life of me I'll never understand why they didn't give him any shoes. Penguin's back to his Danny DeVito look and it kind of works for this series over its predecessor. Though he looked deformed in B:TAS, he still acted and dressed like a refined gentleman of crime. The only off putting thing about Penguin is the oversized hat and his coattails dragging on the ground.
