As a kid I thought that intro was the most badass thing ever. Doesn't really hold up...

I love the DCAU too, but it doesn't hurt to have an open mind. I love plenty of the DC stuff outside of the DCAU like, Teen Titans, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Green Lantern TAS, and Beware the Batman.

You might wanna replace Batman: The Brave and the Bold with young justice.

Nope. I think BaTB is much better than YJ. I don't think YJ is all that good. It has a great version of Robin, but other than that very little stands out. I'm planning to do a season 2 rewatch soon now that it's on Netflix, though.

Brave and bold is just one of those silly DC Cartoons just for adam west nostalgic fans.

Got to disagree. It's a very well put together show, that has a lot of fun and knows how to tell a great story. I still remember how I felt watching the Doom Patrol episode.

That defeats the Purpose of what Batman is all about. Its Batman and Robin all over again.

It really doesn't. Batman can have fun. It's ok.

As long as it's an enjoyable show with strong writing than its fine.

"Batman's rich history allows him to be interpreted in a multitude of ways. To be sure, this is a lighter incarnation, but it's certainly no less valid and true to the character's roots than the tortured avenger crying out for mommy and daddy."

Yes it does that's why the dark knight trilogy restored Batman's honor which Ben will fuck it up.

Yeah. Even in the comics, Bruce is more than just "Darkness! No Parents! Continued Darkness!". Especially since he became a parent (and Thank God they brought Damian back from the dead. The last thing Bats needed was another dead relative to angst over. Hearing him talk about his parents has become tiresome enough. I didn't need him going on about the kid he lost in the world's most needlessly complicated custody battle)

Eh, so far I'm not seeing the problem with Batfleck that everyone else has. He looks and acts...just like Batman. Just like Bale. And just like Keaton.

So, I guess if I said I'd rather watch BaTB than the Dark Knight trilogy, I'm somehow wrong right?

Batman doesn't have to be all dark. If that's what you prefer, fine, but I don't think you should act like that's how Batman has to be.

Yeah, it's not like anyone at this point doesn't know Adam West's version was the best Batman interpretation of all time.

Honestly, I don't know how someone can't at least enjoy the 60s show somewhat. No matter if you first saw it as a kid or as an adult, it's fun. Fun is good. Fun is fun.

(Although, it's not my favorite version, but I do appreciate it.)

You are aware that things can be interpreted in many ways?

We had a campy batman, we had a brooding batman and we had TDK trilogy where Bruce Wayne/Batman left forever to lead a normal life

Variety is the spice of life.

We should all know this since we're on a Power ranger board that reinterprets what a Japanese TV show does.

Brave and The Bold was a love letter to silverage comics. Very suprisning what they were able to pull off. Even in this "silly nostalgic" show as you call it. They had to deal with characters dieing in the line of duty, I have no complaints about it. As I look back I feel stupid for pre judging the series based on a few panels of artwork. Just like everyone seems to be doing with Justice League Action.....

...I'm sad that everyone missed my Batmite quote from the show...

I honestly don't see a immense problem with this JL incarnation being a tad lighter and more cartoon-y. I know everyone shudders at Go!, but I feel it's not really going that route.

Famous Last Words.

You must have loved Batman singing in JLU. That and Kid Batman.

Even the DCAU could be camp farce at the best of times.
