Just thought I'd bring this topic back as this show is still one of the best out there...

I started watching eps again, starting with season 2...Laughing Fish is always a classic

Dick kicks ass in Night of the Ninja....I've only finished the first disc...and I havent even opened season 3 (I wanted to go in order)

Can't wait to see Almost Got Im...Discuss B:TAS here ...favorite eps, etc.

B:TAS will always remain one of my fondest childhood memories. I still love the series, and I rewatch those episodes as much as I can.

My personal favorite would have to be "Tyger, Tyger." It's very poetic, especially when connected to William Blake's "The Tyger." In fact, I wrote an extensive analysis of the episode which I posted on Toonzone.

"Almost Got 'Im" is another good episode, particularly with the entertaining character interaction between the villains. In fact, this used to be my favorite episode (but was replaced by "Tyger, Tyger").

Other favorites include "Fear of Victory," "Joker's Wild," "It's Never Too Late," and "Two-Face."

The episode I hate the most would have to be "The Last Laugh." Horrible animation, horrible dialogue, and horrible characterization. There is nothing positive I can say about this episode.

Other hated episodes include "Appointment in Crime Alley," "Cat Scratch Fever," "The Forgotten," and "Day of the Samurai."

Is Forgotten the one about the kids in the sewers who are ruled over by some guy with crocs....I can't remember which one that is but I hated it. Its dumb and tries to be funny and has a bad story. Also Batman throws around CROCS, honestly these crocs are huge and at least a 1000lbs so its stupid that he can just throw em.....I like realism

No, "The Forgotten" is where Bruce, disquised as a bum, is trying to investigate why the homeless are disapearing, but is kidnapped with them to a work camp in the desert. Something like that, it's been a while since I've seen it.

Oh yeah! Thx JRK cheesy I never really minded that one but never thought it was great either. I liked the scene with Alfred in the Batplane.

I just saw the episodes Heart of Steel pts 1 & 2 and these are some wicked eps. I know there is a bit of a follow up to this episode too but I can't remember it.

The last part of the HARDAC trilogy would be "His Silicon Soul." I found it to be superior to the "Heart of Steel" episodes (those episodes are still good, but not as good as "His Silicon Soul").

Another good episode would be "Baby-Doll." It seems like one of B:TAS's comedy episodes, but it is suprisingly dark.

Just saw "Tyger, Tyger" and I agree with you totally Gaunt. What a wicked episode...it had everything from mystery & Suspense to some wicked action and great drama. The ending.....SPOILERS....






was great too with Typrus asking Selina to be the only one of their kind together so he doesnt have to be alone all his life, and she refuses and it makes sense but it's altogether sad too. Typrus was a great character and when he poured his heart out it was well done......just a awesome friggin' episode.

Joker's Wild was not bad either although the lackluster escape from Arkham was too stupid. There were only 2 guards and an open door in Joker's way.... sad

I love "Tyger, Tyger." Hell, I even wrote an eight-page analysis (currently revising) on that episode, connecting it with Blake's poem, as well as looking for possible themes. I loved it as a kid, and I love it today.

"Joker's Wild" is a good episode unfortunately animated by AKOM (one of the worst animation studios). It's one of my favorite episodes, otherwise.

Regarding the Arkham breakout, it seemed that Kaiser devised it so the Joker could get out easily (the security guard with the black hair is seen again at Kaiser's penthouse).

Man, are we the only two fans of the show on this forum?

That's what I am thinking since we are the only ones who are posting..but hey we'll keep it alive cheesy There was a post of this before and I know people posted before so i don't know what's stopping them now.

I thought all the eps were animated from the same place (They said in the commentary that is was someplace in Japan). I didn't notice any differences in "Joker's Wild".

Kaiser is a smart man I guess....well done Gaunt grin my brother and I were like that was the worst escape ever before.

That show is my favourite childhood memory.

Personally i like the Two-Face two parter (I'm sure that pun was intended). On Leather Wings is also really good on account of it being the first episode I saw. I think it would be shorter for me to list the episodes I hate. Let me see now... Oh wait there's none that I hate.

I just saw I Am The Night and it was amazing. The Animation studio on this episode did a great job and I noticed little touches that I really liked.

Amazing altogether......nuff' said.

This show is the reason why I'm so into Batman. As a kid, I could not get enough of this foreboding, emotionless character who wasn't afraid to get rough with some thugs. This totally blew my mind because my prior perception of superheroes was that they were completely altruisic, and morally absolute. Black was black, white was white, and there was only good and evil. Then this cartoon comes along about this rich guy who dresses up as a Bat and scares the shit out of people...it rocked my world. To this day I believe that the Dini/Timm team are the only ones who really got the Batman character and his world down perfect. They blended every great writers contributions to the character. From Denny O'Neill to Frank Miller, it was a just the perfect balance. The storytelling was dark and mature for a childrens cartoon, and dealt with themes that were a little beyond the average viewers comprehension, without totally confusing them. It also helps that Conroy got the voice down pat.
