Batman, The: The Complete Fifth Season (DVD)

In Gotham, a metropolis where shadows run long and deep, lives The Batman. He's in his mid-twenties 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 conclusion of the new 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 Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, 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 amped-up Batmobile, all operated and linked by an advanced remote-controlled invention he dubs the "BatWave".

Okay, Season 3 was good and Season 4 was even better. Now here come thirteen more episodes. If you like your Batman integrated into the wider DC superhero universe, then Season 5 will be hog heaven (but don't get it twisted; THE BATMAN is not at all placed in the same continuity as the shows in Bruce Timm's DC Animated Universe). This fifth season finds a darknight detective even more amenable to teamwork, although that's not to say he's all of a sudden the life of the party. Dude still broods muchly and cloaks himself in mystery and intimidation; that's just how he rolls. But, continuing the trend begun in Season 4, Season 5 showcases members of the Justice League. The two episode arc "The Batman/Superman Story" kicks it off by teaming up the World's Finest, Batman and Superman, in a nifty story featuring a whole gang of supervillains and the Bat going up against the Man of Steel. I guess it's appropriate that the season (and the series) would close with the two-part "Lost Heroes," a big-scale Justice League adventure.

Superhero cartoon shows don't get a lot of run nowadays, do they? THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES animated series just got the axe. And, yes, horribly, this is the last season in THE BATMAN series, so all the more reason to enjoy this one. The best part is Batman and Robin teaming up with various of the Justice League. Robin's awed reactions to meeting these other heroes are priceless. One downside to so many spotlights on the JLA is that less time is given to the Bat family. I miss Batgirl and her sarcasm; here, she's relegated to less face time. We do learn that time hasn't been standing still for Barbara Gordon as she's now old enough to attend college ("Attack of the Terrible Trio").

The Dark Knight welcomes the Justice League to Gotham City in "The Batman: The Complete Fifth Season". As the mysterious crime fighter Batman, young industrialist Bruce Wayne has dedicated his life to protect Gotham City from such dangerous rogues like Joker, Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman and Mr. Freeze, but now he must test his courage and skills along side Earth's greatest superheroes. In this action-packed season, Batman joins the Justice League and teams up with Superman, Green Arrow, the Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkman and Martian Manhunter against such villains like Lex Luthor, Mirror Master, Count Vertigo and more. "The Batman" is the Emmy Award-winning animated series based on the DC Comic hero created by artists Bob Kane and Bill Finger. The animated series maintains faithful to the comic books. The animation style and character designs are certainly different than previous television shows. The fifth and final season offers plenty of amusement and features guest voice stars like George Newbern, Dana Delany, Louise Gossett Jr., John Larroquette, Dermot Mulroney, Miguel Ferrer and Robert Patrick.

"The Batman: The Complete Fifth Season" offers a great DVD presentation at an affordable retail price. All 13 action-packed episodes of the final season are presented in their original full screen broadcast format. Like the previous season sets, the picture quality is really good and its 2.0 Dolby Digital sound certainly gets the job done. Its only special features are "Joining Forces: The Batman's Legendary Team-Ups" (9 minutes) and "The Batman: Justice League Profiles" (12 minutes) featurettes and trailers of other Warner Brother DVD releases and "Speed Racer" video game. Despite the lack of solid bonus features, "The Batman: The Complete Fifth Season" earns a "B".

Having watched Seasons 3 and 4, I found I really didn't care for "The Batman" series. The stories were weak, the series incarnation of the Joker was annoying, and the series incarnation of Batgirl was so annoying to the point of being exasperating -- she was a scrawny, cheesy, one-liner machine who lacked the dignity of previous Batgirls. Most annoying of all was the soundtrack to this series, driven by awful synthesizer music that at times could be so jarring as to distract from the stories themselves.

That said, the fifth season was a pleasant surprise, the only season worth watching, IMO.
The main reason for this is that almost every episode features one member of the Justice
League colleague as a guest star. Superman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Green Arrow,
Martian Manhunter, all of them make an appearance at one point or another (would have
liked to have seen the mighty Wonder Woman make an appearance too, but it was not
to be, unfortunately). It is fun to watch Batman's stoic and analytical personality vis a vis
the colorful perosnalities of the Justice League, from Flash's zaniness to the Martian Manhunter's
otherworldly weirdness. The stories are much more interesting and faster paced. The appearance
of the uber-annoying Batgirl is kept to a minimum, while Robin (a more interesting and likeable
character in this series) is given greater screen time.

I would advise that you skip the rest of this series, and just purchase this last and final season. It will make an excellent addition to your animation collection.
