The episodes in this DVD are:
14) Heart of Ice - An evildoer is stealing equipment from various GothCorp facilities and using a freezing gun to freeze anyone who comes in his way. Batman uses the clues and discovers the next area where the attacker may appear, and finds out that Mr. Freeze is behind all this. Freeze escapes from Batman, but doesn't plan on killing him since his main intention is revenge on Ferris Boyle, CEO of GothCorp. Batman tries to find out what is the reason for Freeze's doings, to stop him.
This is the first episode to have Mr. Freeze in it, and it is a terrific episode. You really feel sorry for Victor Fries, but at the same time hatred for Mr. Freeze. The way in which Batman tries to capture Freeze is entertaining. (5/5)
15 & 16) The Cat and the Claw Parts I and II - There is a new cat burglar in Gotham, and Batman finds out that it is a woman. The two of them form a relationship, but Batman loses her. Meanwhile, there is a new terrorist in town by the name of Red Claw whom Batman is looking for as well. Red Claw is after a plague that she wants for her mission. Later, Bruce Wayne also falls for Celina Kyle, a wildlife activist who is trying to buy land for a wildlife preserve, but has to fight with MutiGon Corp. (who is planning on building a resort there). Can Batman fight his feelings for Catwoman and Celina Kyle by going after her? Will they be able to stop Red Claw from destroying Gotham?
This is one of my favorite episodes. The chemistry between Bruce Wayne/Batman and Celina Kyle/Catwoman is great to watch.Read more ›
For the die-hard fans, Warner Brothers has released a box set of Batman TAS. It is called Batman The Animated Series volume 1 and it is a fantastic 4-disc set that contains the first 28 episodes. Once again, if you are looking to collect the episodes, go with this boxed set. It runs about $35.
However, if you are simply looking at getting something Batman for your child to view since he is begging for it, this DVD would be nice. It probably runs $10-15 and it gives you 4 episodes of one of the best cartoons ever.
Now, let's hope Warner Bros. follows this pattern and releases boxed sets of Superman, Justice League and Batman Beyond.
HEART OF ICE-Possibly my favorite episode, I am still undecided between the one where bruce wayne has to commit suicide to save his life, you love the irony and you know, so if you have never seen this show this would actually be a perfect disc to pick up at the local used store so you can decide if you wwant all the episodes of one of the greatest television show cartoon or not. This one REALLY makes you fell for mr freeze and the directors are so freaking brilliant with the storyline with this one that you would think that they would be making huge jack for the top shows or movies or something. I don't want to give anything away but be prepared for one of the best 30 min.(22) shows of all time.
CAT AND THE CLAW- This is a 2 parter that introduces catwoman, the story is not one of the stronger ones but is still above average even for this series. This also has a top ten line for me where batman tells a sickened catwoman(unmasked) that she is hot(while feeling her forhead). And selina(catwoman) says "now you notice" right as she oasses out. This show had a couple of stronger sexual parts in the series, but they were extremely random. This quote from THE MAN WHO KILLED BATMAN. Harley shows up to bail the man who killed... out of jail and the fat dirty cop bullock says "don't I know you from somewhere", and harley looking really hot(for a cartoon, she was not dressed as a clown) says "I believe I served you a subpoena once" then turns back around and fires again with "I believe it's a small subpeona". Freaking classic batman.Read more ›
