  • Really loving these JLI episodes, this one brings back a major villain and sets up things to come.

    9.0
    I very rarely include a spoiler warning, I've done it a few times when I thought there were major surprises which you should see for yourself, so be warned...okay? This is another JLI episode, you know chances are I'm probably gonna love it, if only for Ice, too bad they seem to follow the comics and have that jerk Guy Gardner making advances towards her, I know they want to portray her as a ditz, but this was a bit too much, dinosaurs and man living in the same time period? I agree with Guy, which school did she go to? Must be mine, the Norwegian education system strikes again, but no, we're not all that stupid, at least she didn't start talking about fish in this one, but nothing can make me dislike her. What I had a problem with was the rushed nature of the episode, and frankly I would've given it a much lower score of it weren't for the ending which promises more from a certain returning villain. Ready for the spoiler? Equinox is back, oh yeah, he was absent in season 2, why? Well, he died in the last episode of season 1, Batman killed him by shattering him into several pieces, turns out however that those pieces carry aspects of his personality, and they live on, this part made a robot body of Equinox in an attempt to kill the future Batman.



    Oh yeah, future Batman, you see as the title suggests this is a time travel episode, we get to see prehistoric Batman, Pirate Batman, Roman Batman and the aforementioned future Batman. These individual segments aren't that great, but there are some funny lines in each of them, they were clever with the team-ups, so that there's at least one funny characterin each team. The animation seemed different, and I felt the same way about the previous episode, it was more noticeable here, I don't know what it is, it just seemed...well, different, not in a bad way, Batman seemed even more angular if that's possible and less chubby, the backgrounds seemed more detailed and vibrant. There were some animaton mistakes, or missing shots that lead to awkward transitions, but again, it's a good looking show. The opening with the Creeper was pretty funny, I didn't like the one in The New Batman Adventures, he became really annoying, I guess he works best in small doses, at least for me, though I don't think I would mind seeing this show's version of him return.



    This is another great episode, I do have minor qualms with it, but they promise at the end to continue the Equinox plot, which I appreciate, I know some didn't like him as a villain in the first season, but I'm glad he's back, this is gonna be very interesting, and I hope this means even more Ice...I mean more JLI.moreless
  • First time that I actually remembered to watch a NEW episode of "Batman: The Brave and the Bold"

    6.5
    I always forget to watch a NEW episode of "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" and I always miss them. I pretty much watch this show when I wake up a little early in the morning to watch this show. For the first time ever, I actually remembered that there was a NEW episode of "Batman: The Brave and the Bold". I haven't seen this show in almost a month and finally remembered to watch the NEW episode. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in this NEW episode. The one time I remembered to watch a NEW episode of this show and the episode had to be about Batman being gone throughout this entire episode. Batman is my favorite superhero and he is the reason why I watch this show but the one thing that really disappointed me about this episode so much was that Batman only appeared in the very beginning and the very end of the episode. This episode is about the superheros time-traveling to try to get the REAL Batman to appear. The storyline also didn't seem to catch my attention and this episode was little boring at times. I did laugh pretty hard when Aqua Man said "Hooray, I get to fight Romans". I also enjoyed seeing the Prehistoric Batman, Pirate Batman, and Roman Batman in this episode. The best part of this episode was probably when REAL Batman, Prehistoric Batman, Pirate Batman, and Roman Batman fought that giant monster but even that part didn't last very long. Overall, this episode was just okay but the most disappointing thing about this episode was the fact that there was less Batman. 6.5/10moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Batman: You're looking at the next 10 to 15 years in Arkham Asylum, Hellgrammite.
      Hellgrammite: I'm never going back to that roach motel, Batman.

    • Batman: Are you just going to watch, or could I get a little help here, Creeper?
      Creeper: You got it, pal. Batman, Batman, he's our man. If that really totally disgusting freakishly deformed abomination can't beat him, no one can! Yay, Batman.
      Batman: Not what I had in mind. Let's go.
      Creeper: Oh, I'd love to. But I have group therapy in 15 minutes. And the other psychotics just hate it when I'm late.

    • Fire: Aye, time paradoxes give me a headache.
      Ice: The key is to just nod and not think about them.

    • Booster Gold: Uh, I'm from the future. So how come I didn't know about this?
      Rip Hunter: Cause you're just a time traveler, kid. I'm the Time Master.
      Blue Beetle: Ohhh, no he didn't!

    • Guy Gardner: I'll go with Tora, cause, you know, the kid needs someone to watch her back.
      Fire: Make sure that's all you are watching.

    • Ice: Look, cavemen! I wonder if we'll see any dinosaurs?
      Guy Gardner: Where'd you go to school? Dinosaurs and men didn't exist in the same time period. (Ice looks disappointed) But, hey, anything's possible, right?

    • Pirate Batman: I like the cut of your jib, mateys. I'd be honored if you two would become permanent members of me crew.
      Blue Beetle: Ha! Didn't even know I had a jib.

    • Rip Hunter: Time isn't linear. It's simultaneous. Events in the future create the present as much as events in the past do.
      Fire: Ah, now I've really got a headache.
      Ice: Not me.

    • Ice: What is this place?
      Equinox: You have made a terrible mistake in coming here.
      Blue Beetle: And we're walking toward the loud evil voice because?
      Booster Gold: We're incredibly heroic. Or incredibly dumb.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Creeper: Who's on first?
      Referencing the classic vaudeville Abbott & Costello comedy routine. The comedy duo first performed the routine during a tour in 1937, went on to do it on radio on The Kate Smith Hour in March 1938, and performed it in their movie debut in One Night in the Tropics (1940). They also performed the routine in The Naughty Nineties (1945) in what is considered their finest recorded rendition. The routine is based off the confusion caused by a baseball team where all of the players have names that are brief statements (Who, What, I Don't Know, Why, Because, Tomorrow, Today). Abbott tries to explain that Who is the first baseman, confusing Costello who keeps asking "Who's on first?" and being told "Yes."

    • Creeper: Neuman!
      Referencing the TV series Seinfeld, where Jerry's neighbor on the show is the postman Newman. They typically consider themselves enemies, and when they meet Jerry says "Hello, Newman!" and Newman says, "Hello, Jerry!"

    • Creeper: That's what she said!
      Referencing a modern-day variant on the old sexual innuendo line "As the actress said to the bishop." The modern-day version first saw use in Wayne's World (1992), and became a catchphrase for Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) on The Office.

    • Guy Gardner: Bring it on, Flintstone!
      Referencing the animated "modern stone age family" which first aired in 1960. The show revolved around Fred Flintstone, the patriarch of his family who, with his neighbor Barney and Barney's wife Betty, eventually got into a variety of family and suburban exploits. The show ran for six seasons and spawned multiple spinoff series, one animated theatrical feature, several TV specials, and two live-action theatrical movies.

    • Aquaman: Friends, Romans, countrymen, I am Aquaman.
      Referencing the speech given by Antony in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Act 3, Scene 2, Page 4. Antony is speaking for the deceased Julius Caesar, but uses the speech to turn the crowd against Brutus, the man who struck Caesar down, supposedly in the name of freedom but really to serve his own ambition.
