Good bye to a crappy batman show. tis bout time.

Crappy?!? Nah. I just think this was another animated show with a different approach. Animating stories straight from the comics is something that now in times you're not going to see alot. I enjoyed it. For someone who collects, but can try to see it in a different angle(as in someone who doesn't collect comics) it was good. Shoot, they should continue it with the "JLA". Why not?!?

this was a sick ass show

I have to agree with Jeff on this one. I'm glad they took a chance on it, I'm kinda tired of the Bruce Timm style of animation. After going back through the different seasons, they put alot of detail in that I really enjoyed but don't get a chance to catch the first time around. I thought it was a nice break from the giant block chests and tiny legs animation of Bruce Timm mentioned earlier.

I never really liked it too. The only ones I watched were these ones. A special appearance. I love DC characters but really didn't like this animation or music. The best was the Justice League series. It was great! Kids really don't watch thses cartoons. it is us die hard 30 somethings that grew up reading these comics wishing for them to made into movies and cartoons 20 years ago. They have to hit us as an audience and JL did that.

i think the show was good. i think the take they took on the villains was new, but not inaccurate (cept the riddler). im sure that the person who commented first had never really even watched it.i think batman was as g as ever and it was cool to see a yound bruce wayne handling his business. i dont think they should have added robin because i have never liked the idea of him having a side kick. however, it would have been cool if he adopted a kid to train to be the next batman later on. thye could have done a flash forward at the end of the series finale that showed him training the next batman and using the nickname robin as his training name.

I agree with Valentine. This show CRRRRAAAAAAPPPYYY!
The character designs were less than appealing. The music was rotten. The plotting was awful and there was no thematic storyline that bridged episodes.
On the merchandise side, they could never get the toys right with several characters not in scale and multiple themes that confused waves of figures (thanks Mattel).
One BIG issue I had with it .... THE JOKER DOES NOT HAVE EFFING DREADLOCKS AND HE DOES NOT SPORT A STRAIGHT JACKET AROUND TOWN!!!!! The Joker is too vain a character to do that!
Dini/Timm had it right the first time.

i like it....it's always cool to witness batman in a different pov. he's pretty much the only character that you can do that with

It had its flaws sure... but it was a nice, refreshing take on the Batman franchise. I'll miss it.

Dvalin, you have a problem with the Joker (and I'm not saying you're wrong)but don't even mention the Kung Fu Penguin????
That was almost enough to make me stop watching and swear the series off forever. All in all, the series started out weak and like many shows it improved over the run. The latest season has been fun to watch.

Well...the way I see it, you can't make everyone happy. The way I see it, anything that is not straight as is from the comics is "Crappy". Damn shame. Maybe comicbooks heros shouldn't be messed with. I guess when "Batman Gotham Knights" comes out, we'll have people complaining that the show is too "Manga". What ever. The show rocked! And it even rocked when they changed the theme song on the third season. I was LMAO when the new theme hit the opening. It made me smile, and that's all that matters.
