  • A Fun Series if you don't take it Seriously

    8.5
    A few years back, my college suite mates and I would watch Cartoon Network's Friday night line up every week. Thundercats, Young Justice, Generator Rex ... they were all a relaxing change of pace from the rest of CN's lineup. Though at first we ignored Brave and the Bold, it's lighthearted randomness soon became something we anticipated each week. Some episodes were admittedly worse than others, and I am currently only familiar with the later episodes, but from what I saw, it's a blast to watch with others. Yes, it was rather stupid at times, but its weird situations and quirky characters are what made us love it.



    It is CERTAINLY not for everyone, as most Batman fans seem distraught over this campy interpretation, but I find it a pleasing alternative to the plethora of darker Batman series. Aquaman is especially enjoyable, though some will be annoyed with how he has been downgraded to being almost entirely comic relief.



    Like I stated before, each episode varies greatly in quality, but there are certainly some great gems of episodes hidden in the rough. Especially good (from what I saw) are the "Mayhem of the Music Meister," "Aquaman's Outrageous Adventure," "Night of the Batmen," "Powerless," and the final episode, "Mitefall" (a must-see where the writers basically make fun of their own series).moreless
  • Batman the fun and the clever

    8.0
    This show has tons of great ideas and introduces a formula that in every episode they bring in a new B or C list comic book charcter for Batman to team up with. In every episode you also get a partly bland villian. The villians are as cut dry as I want to rule the world because I`m a bad person. But I think the show is so fun and the action scenes are great. The script is okay they could make it tighter. I like the story of every episode they did a great job. Also i thought that the charcters were accurate to the comics. I don`t think it`s one of my favorite shows but I like it enough that I watched the first two seasons and loved them. I would recomend it to anyone that likes shows about superheroes.



    Edit: This show knows what it's doing it had a season finally that broke the fourth wall while telling how Batman has impacted children. It knows of other serious takes on Batman and it tries to keep this show light hearted. With the more series episodes they were done good. It also took stupid characters and made a joke of them while reminding us of the fun aspects. Also looking back the show was very funny.moreless
  • Not horrible

    6.0
    This was not the worst show I have seen, but it was very repetitive. Batman would team up with two or more lesser known superheroes to fight bad guys. The only two memorable episodes were "Mayhem of the Music Meister" and the very dark "Chill of the Night," where Batman finally confronts Joe Chill, the man who killed Bruce's parents, in a television show. Most of the episodes were humorous and Batman used incredibly lame lines, but like I wrote it wasn't a horrible show (Though I did give up on it when Batman teamed up with Space Ghost).moreless

    Finally a Batman show I can watch with my kids (that's good). It's funny, it's awesome to see some different characters, and the animation is stellar.



    I can not believe they ended it. I didn't know they were going to do it until I watched the last episode. I actually pulled a Darth Vader and yelled NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! why get rid of it. It would have added a little ground for parents to let there kids watch DC Nation.



    With Marvel Universe coming out and DC Nation reaching to adults, I will have to watch Marvel.



    It does make since, whenever a parent asked me what comics should he get for his kids I always told him go with Marvel, it's more kid friendly. Do Not let him read Batman, it's not for kids, it's brutal.moreless
