Batman: Brave and The Bold Season One, Part One DVD Review

Batman: Brave and The Bold Season One, Part One DVD Review


Synopsis: 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 first 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.

Review: The Brave and the Bold is the most recent cartoon to make its mark on the Batman franchise.  The show brings a mixture of humor and nostalgia that appeals to many older fans, while also keeping it interesting for little ones.

The Brave and the Bold is basically a love letter to the silver age of Batman comics.  The character designs and the campy feel really show that the crew on the show have a fanboy agenda to put forth.  They claim that the show is geared towards kids, but it clearly has draws for the adult fan, as well.  The show airs on Cartoon Network, which not everyone can get, so this DVD set may be your first introduction to the show.  Its fun for kids and fans alike.  It has humor and action, but not the serious overtones of say Batman: The Animated Series or even The Batman.

This DVD set includes 13 episodes from the first season of the show.   This is a great start to collecting the complete series, which will end with season 3!

The episodes on this set include: RISE OF THE BLUE BEETLE,TERROR ON DINOSAUR ISLAND,EVIL UNDER THE SEA,INVASION OF THE SECRET SANTAS,DAY OF THE DARK KNIGHT,ENTER THE OUTSIDERS,DAWN OF THE DEAD MAN,FALL OF THE BLUE BEETLE, JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE BAT,EYES OF DESPERO,RETURN OF THE FEARSOME FANGS,DEEP COVER FOR BATMAN,GAME OVER FOR OWLMAN

Interest Range: Batman, Dc Comics, Animation
