DVD Review: BATMAN "THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD" Season One Part Two
Going into this DVD as a Batman fan helped the situation. I'd watched some of these episodes on TV and getting the second opportunity to watch them on DVD was a blast! Batman: the Brave and the Bold Season One Part Two gives the fans a chance to see a lighter side of the caped crusader aka The Dark Knight to some. It's definitely for a younger audience sometimes going to the extreme cheese which means it gets really silly at times.
This incarnation of Batman allows the older generation to enjoy a character they grew up watching with the now generation who only knows this entry of Bats. Something else cool about Batman: The Brave and the Bold is you get to see characters you wouldn't have seen on the other cartoons, shows or movies and a usually funny actor voicing Batman as we get Diedrich Bader (The Drew Carey show) who hits a grand slam with this character and has also voiced numorous characters in other Batman cartoons. We also get crazy characters like Bat Mite who shows up in one of the 13 episodes on the 2 disc set. Yeah, I said Bat Mite shows up and does his damage along with other cheesy characters like Plasticman, Red Tornado and even Blue Beetle.
Really the only thing I don't like is there are only two discs which means we don't get any special features at all. So, with all this being said this 13 episode DVD set is a fun watch for young and old. The Dark Knight fanatics might want to stay away since they really go for the darker, edgness of Batman. Batman: The Brave and the Bold is avaiable everywhere on DVD.
Batman wings into an exciting new era, teaming with a mighty honor roll of DC Comics Super Heroes in this action-packed series. Through the show’s final 13 Animated Adventures in this 2-Disc Collection, the Dark Knight allies with Aquaman, Plastic Man, Blue Beetle, Red Tornado, Green Arrow, Wildcat, Deadman, Bronze Tiger and Atom to take on an array of evildoers ranging from mad scientists to intergalactic crooks, from power-mad dictators to out-of-control teenagers. He even travels to a parallel world, becoming the villainous Owlman! In this cool, cutting-edge and often funny series bringing back old-school comic-book styling and dry wit to crimefighting, Batman faces any peril – including other heroes stealing the show – in his relentless pursuit of justice
