In the third (and unfortunately final) season of Batman Beyond, the show's creators settle into a rhythm that's really reminiscent of their finer moments in the much heralded Batman: The Animated Series. Having followed the series from its debut episode right up until the final, I can state that the entire third season manages to feel very natural in terms of character interaction and setting mood. While not as unpredictable as the first season, the third was wise to put Maxine Gibson (from season 2) on the backburner. Terry is much more able to explore his own thoughts and feelings as the new Batman with Bruce to back him up when the going gets rough. Note: Max is still present in many episodes, but her role is a bit more subtle.

Unlike Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond doesn't run quite a tight rouge's gallery. There are some reoccurring villains (such as Inque, Blight, The Jokerz, etc.) but nothing like the staples found in the original Batman story-lines. The show's creators claim that while there never an official "canceling" of Batman Beyond, they were all approached with assignments that caused them to drift apart which explains why the final episode could be viewed as fairly anticlimactic. Fortunately, as a result, greats like Justice League and Unlimited would be born. Batman Beyond is a program that still holds up beautifully and brings an interesting take on an already wonderful franchise. My only complaint about the series is that it had to come to an end.
