    A great show. Really, really great. Used to watch this all the time back when it was on. Love the villian-per-week thing they have. And the 2 theme songs are top-notch

    Compared to the 1992 incarnation, this feels like more of a "show" than an anthology of 80-something cartoons dealing with a different bad guy each week. Granted for the first season or so, it _does_ sort of follows that "Monster of the Week" format, but from season 2 onwards a greater importance is placed on continuity, and by the fifth season, you wouldn't be faulted for being a bit lost as to what's happening. Stylistically-speaking however, this displays more of an anime influence (same showrunners of The Adventures of Jackie Chan) and attempts to somewhat modernize the source material, whereas the original was firmly rooted in traditional American animation, with some film noir and German expressionism thrown in for good measure. From a tonal standpoint, you could say this leans more towards the lighthearted side of things from season 3 onwards (although the original had its fair share of funny moments too), however the moody nature of the Batman character and Gotham itself remain intact. Frankly, both shows have a similar consistency of quality and it ultimately just comes down to what you prefer out of your Batman, much in the same way some might prefer the Burton fims over the Nolan films, and vice versa. Personally, as unpopular an opinion as this is, I find this show a bit easier to swallow than the original, if only because of the smoother animation and darker atmosphere. I will say though that the shoehorning of Robin in the fourth season (which unfortunately begins the removal of Batgirl, arguably the best character in the show) is more than a little frustrating, and to that end, the feeling at times like the showrunners are being pressured to push new designs and villains to compliment the toyline. However that's just me. Very good show overall, and sadly overlooked in the shadow of its predecessor.

    About Me

    I am Sophie and this is my website.

    A little about me πŸ‘‹ 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 πŸ™ˆ

    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!
