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.
Zeta, a robot on the run from the government, meets Ro, a young teenage runaway.
"HIS MAKER'S NAME"
Zeta searched for one one of his creators, but Bennett finds out about it and tries to capture him. However, Zeta's creator helps him escape and gives him the name of the man who can clear his name - Selig, the head of the Zeta project.
Ro and Zee encounter Bucky, a brilliant but bratty kid genius, while looking for Dr. Sellig at at science competition. Bucky's supervisor Dr. Tannor steals his invention, a remote that can control any mechanical device. When he offers it up at the competition as his own creation, Bucky takes control of Zee and sets him after Tannor for revenge.
"CHANGE OF HEART"
Zee and Ro track Selig to a museum in Grandview, but get waylaid when a little girl becomes trapped in a fusion power chamber. Zee reveals himself and fights to save her life, while the NSA closes in.
"THE NEXT GEN"
Zeta is on the trail of a drug lord but must cope with a new improved Zeta robot on his trail.
Zeta and Ro take to a train to avoid pursuit, but West follows them.
Ro returns to visit her first foster family, the Morgans, in hopes of digging up information on her biological family. Determined to show them she wasn't a failure, she creates a rich girl persona via Zee's unlimited charge-card, but Zee goes overboard when he holograms as a famous vidstar. Things get dangerous when he's revealed as a robot, but before the pair escape Ro discovers evidence that she has a brother.

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.
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!
