3.0 out of 5 stars Decent addition to the DCAU June 17, 2009
Format:DVD
I never caught Zeta when it aired, but I was introduced to the show through Batman Beyond, the series it spun off from. The DVD heavily touts this association stating 'From the World of Batman Beyond' with 2 Bonus Episodes from BB featuring Zeta.

Despite coming from the same universe, Zeta has a completely different tone. There's a few episodes that I really enjoyed, like Taffy Time, where a bounty hunter lures Zeta into a trap using Agent Lee as bait, and Ro's Reunion was a good one. My least favorite episodes usually involved annoying kid genius Bucky, who tags along on 3 adventures. I liked the introduction of the upgraded model that Zeta attempts to stop from carrying out an assassination but then returns, setting his sights on Zeta. This one reminded me of Terminator. Batman makes a guest appearance in that one, but it felt more like a ratings grab than actually having a good reason to write him into the show.

The featurette about making the show is OK, the most interesting fact being that Robert Goodman originally created the show to be even darker than Batman Beyond but Kids WB forced them to make it more juvenile and target a younger audience. I would have liked to seen what it could have been had it taken a more serious tone seeing as some of the eps are pretty silly at times, but the show still works based on the strength of the concept and the fact that it's pretty action oriented.

I would have preferred if they had put all the season one eps on here (it's missing Absolute Zero) as opposed to giving us the Bonus Batman eps which have been previously released. It's a shame that this season didn't sell better because it means the chance of Season 2 releasing is slim and I would have liked to continue the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iron Giant Meets Bourne Identity March 24, 2009
Format:DVD
This show is fun. Not very original, but fun. It is one of those great shows that are safe for kids, but parents can sit and watch with them.

The series follows Zeta (Nicknamed Zee), a robot trying to find his creator. He is helped by a girl named Ro, who teaches him about humans.

The main draw of the series is the interaction between the witty and sarcastic Ro, and the easily confused Zee. The action is also exciting.

As a fan of the DC animated universe, it is also cool to see the expanded world of Batman Beyond.

This is only the first half of the show, hopefully it will sell enough to warrant a second release. I highly recommend it to fans of cartoons, Batman Beyond, and parents who want a quality series for their kids that won't drive them nuts.

5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed the show August 7, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved Batman Beyond, it was dark, gritty, tough and one of the best episodes introduced a robot, Zeta. For those that don't know Zeta is part of the Greek alphabet, it's the 6th letter and based on the show Zeta is the 6th model of robot that the government of the future designed to assassinate someone, and you thought drones were bad. This particular killer robot, however, like so many robots we've come to love, grows a conscience and decides that killing is bad; throw in a snappy, streetwise teenage girl, and you have a show.
Done in the same animation style as Batman Beyond but with a more upbeat and kid friendly hue, Zeta looks great, the writing is solid, or at least as solid as shows like this could be in those days, and the only disappointment that I have with the show is that because of bad sales they are not going to release season 2. For that I think angry letters should be written to Warner Bros. but that's just me. Still, fun show, great for the kids and adults alike, clever, funny, what's not to like?
Thanks for reading and have a nice day!
