Grab your cape and swing into action with this quintessential
The Animated Series - Volume Two contains 21 episodes
of arguably the best animated series of modern times. Unlike
many of the new wave of wacky cartoons, Batman is dark
and moody. That's not to say this series is void of humour
- far from it.
But it is a winner with the very young, the very old, die-hard
Batman fans and those that have never read a Batman
comic in their lives.
isn't a dull story here, but one of my favourites was Perchance
to Dream. Bruce awakes to discover that his parents are
alive and he never became Batman. Not only that, but he is
to marry Selina Kyle. And, when he discovers there is still
a Batman on the streets, Bruce starts to wonder whether he
is going mad.
Joker episode is worth watching and The Laughing Fish
is a cracker. In this episode the Joker creates a chemical
that produces smiles on fish. This also effects any human
that comes into contact with them.
are plenty of famous names amongst the cast. These include
Mark Hamill (Star War's Luke Skywalker) as The Joker,
Diana Muldaur (Star Trek: The Next Generation's Dr.
Katherine Pulaski) as Dr. Leslie Thompkins and Roddy McDowell
as The Mad Hatter. Also appearing is John de Lancie (Star
Trek's Q), Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager's
Doctor), Helen Slater (Supergirl) and Michael York.
music is also worthy of note Shirley Walker's incidental music
is easily as dramatic as Danny Elfman's theme. While Walker
is not responsible for every episode, she does write the majority.
only real complaint I had was that Warner has decided not
to release this in broadcast order, and instead just seemed
to have plucked episodes out at random. This is a shame as
it would have been great to have all the episodes grouped
together as they were originally shown. It also might prove
problematic if Warner Brothers are planning to release all
of the episodes over time.
include a few interesting features on the background to Batman
as well as audio commentaries on a few episodes.
is a fantastic collection - certainly worth the asking price.
