I finished Beware The Batman aka Batman and the Outsiders. The DC animated TV shows are always fantastic, at least the ones i have seen so far. I actually missed this show existence when it first aired and i am sad that it only last one season. Despite its butchering (heh) of villains like Professor Pyg i could accept it was a new interpretation and the show was fun while being gritty. On the note of villains i did like that they were not conventional in choosing their characters to go against a young Bruce, digging deep or at least outside the normal for his foes. I have found a new found love for Anarky and i enjoyed the determined Harvey Dent. I actually had a theory for a while that they were the same person, an extension of his madness before it was formed into Two-Face but of course that turned out to just be a theory. The active Alfred and his ties with Deathstoke also a great small saga. I want more of this world. Definitely recommend for any DC fans when you are looking for some easy watching.

I was a bit put off by the style of animation at first. It looks unfinished but it does work. The atmosphere is right and the writing is really good. Would have been interesting to see where it could have gone. At least it has some form of conclusion at the end. All in all entertaining to watch and not a waste of time.

Why don't play it on Warner Channel directly? CN is not serious...

DC should leave Cartoon Network and find another network which carea about DC shows...

I really like this show. It does serious Batman well, while still being a fun show. Unfortunately it seems to be going the way of Young Justice (airing delayed then eventually canceled, regardless of quality). Kind of annoying.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
