I have a timer set for it, yep. Looks fun, in a Silver Age-ish sort of way.

Doesn't it just. Although interestingly the design and execution of Batman himself appears to be a strange, but effective, fusion of Jack Kirby and Frank Miller.

Just saw the first episode, not bad. The theme tune is rather snappy and gives the show the right retro heroing vibe. Diedrich Bader does a nice job voicing the Batman. If I can't have Kevin Conroy, he'll do. Smile

Saw it myself and agree entirely. Bader did such a good job of being Conroy (truly THE definitive Batman, vocally) that at times I almost fooled myself into believing that it was Kevin.

Some nice sharp lines in the script and again as you say, very pleasing retro styling - I'm there for the long haul.

There were more than a few moments where Bader did seem to be channeling Conroy, certainly can't argue with that choice. Very Happy Next week's episode should be fun, I believe Plastic Man and Grodd are to be featured.

"Terror on Dinosaur Island!"

The episode wins points with that title alone. Another fun Silver Age adventure, I hope the kiddies are appreciating this show as much as I am. Very Happy

I watched it yesterday evening with my nephew, Elliott - he's 8 and loved - absolutely loved - Plastic Man.

It was a great episode and this show is really turning out to be terrific fun.

Yeah, same here. I particularly liked what became of Grodd. Very Happy

There's just, as you've already noted, such a warm and fuzzy Silver Age glow suffusing the entire show. The spirit of Bill Finger and Dick Sprang lives within these episodes.

It's rather nice to see Batman escape his Millersque misery after so many years.

Yeah...its been a looooong time since this image of Batman and it complements nicely along side the more adult Bale Batman.
The Brave and Bols Batman is just wonderful, very true to the feel of the silver age...very Sprang with more than a touch of Carmine Infantino...
Hoep it works better than The Batman or Batman Beyond.
I rewatched Mask of the Phantasm with my sone last weekend having not watched it in a long time.
Its stunning - a very complete and well told tale that didnt over simplify to the under 10s while strinking a nice nuance to the adults....

It certainly is. That Batman has taken a turn to caricature at this point. Part of the brilliance of the Batman character is that it lends itself well to different interpretations. There's more than enough room for a fun Silver Age style Batman to counterbalance the modern Dark Knight or the "Goddamned" Batman.

Mask of the Phantasm is an excellent film. It's one of my favorite Batman movies.

Exactly. There should be room for both versions. We're not currently getting it in the comics themselves, so I'll happily take it where I can get it.

It's probably my definitive Batman film. The character just lends itself so well to the animation format. This movie gets rewatched in the Seadevil houshold more than any of the Batman stable. It's just a bloody good film in its own right.

Yeah, the comics have been fairly dark. I did enjoy Dini's work on Detective and Bats also fairs well in JLA, but his core title has gotten pretty grim.

Interesting take on Aquaman in the latest episode. And did my ears deceive me or was that the same "Aquatic Telepathy" sound effect that they used to use on the old Super Friends show? Very Happy

You know, I do believe that it was the same sound effect.

Love this series. It just keeps right on getting better with each new episode.

The latest one was a lot of fun, some very (appropriately) Kirby-esque designs there.

Absolutely. And the Red Tornado Christmas story was top notch too. Particularly Batman's wonderfully witty deadpan reactions to RT's attempts to awaken the seasonal spirit in him.

That was a good episode. I liked how they adapted Bruce's origins to the seasonal theme.
