Of this batch, the best episodes - in my eyes, anyway - are the hilarious "Aquaman's Outrageous Adventure!", "The Golden Age of Justice" (featuring the JSA), and "A Bat Divided" (for the Slacker Batman moments). This DVD set comes in two discs and, disappointingly, with no bonus material. Still, twelve episodes aren't too shabby. If you harbor fond memories of Batman as he was in the Golden & Silver Ages and if you don't mind an infusion of Adam West-type wackiness and a cast of quite a lot, then what are you waiting for?Read more ›
But this show comes as a great and welcomed counter point to those more heavyily weighted efforts because it reminds viewers that the Caped Crusader can and is able to have a little more fun now and again. Plus if your a Batman fan and a parent then this is the perfect show to share with your young children. It's safe yet exciting enough to keep both adults and kids entertained.
Understanding Batman fans will see that Batman is still depicted as the serious and competant detective/adventurer that he always essentially was, but his antics and methods are enhanced in the only way a cartoon could showcase them. His tools and gagdets are incredibly cool and advanced and his skills seem endless. This guy knows everything!
A few key episodes are Death Race to Oblivion which is a favorite and Chill of the Night which actually sees this Batman at his "darkest" as he trys to investigate the whereabouts of his parents' murderer. Other greats are Sidekicks Assemble where the sidekicks of the main heroes investigate a case involving Ra's Al Ghul and his daughter Talia.
A recommended buy for anyone one who enjoys the zanies of old comics from time to time and of course all things Batman.
Though I wasn't pleased that the two-part finale of the Great Starro Invasion story arc wasn't included, the latest 2-disc DVD release of Batman: The Brave and the Bold is still a worthy addition to your superhero collection at a decent bargain price. As with the previous discs, the first 12 episodes of the second season of animated series are presented 1.78:1 widescreen format. The video transfer is bright and colorful, and its 2.0 Dolby Digital audio is pretty solid. Besides the trailers of the new animated series Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Thundercats, there are no special features. Overall, Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Season Two, Part One scores a "B-".

As I've stated in other reviews for this show the splitting of seasons into 2 separate DVD sets to make more money is downright irritating and greedy. Read morePublished 14 months ago by THELITTLEZEE
