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".]]>

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").Read more ›
"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".
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.
