The New Batman Adventures or Batman: The Animated Series revamped

I am a huge fan of Batman: The Animated Series. Although this is the 4th & last volume of the set, I bought this one first. I think I missed The New Batman Adventures  during its original run but I grew up on Batman TAS & can still watch it on the DXD channel, so that's why I started with this set.

Batman: The Animated Series was a wonderful show for both kids & adults. It had amazing animations, stellar voice actors, & great storylines. This show just doesn't hold up when compared to its predecessor. The voice acting is as great as always & the storylines are still pretty good (not great) but I don't care so much for the new character designs, especially the Joker's. Everything is more streamlined & less detailed. I prefer the detailed versons.  The one thing that I do like is that they finally gave Bruce Wayne blue eyes, whereas in the old series, they were a sort of generic dark color. 

I do like the expanded "Bat Family." Batgirl is one of my favorite characters & I'm glad to see her get some screen time. I also like the introduction of the new Robin & Nightwing...mullet & all.

The special features seem a little sparse. There's a case file that features the main villains. It gives you a profile on each one & a brief commentary by the show's creators. Each disc also has one episode where you can play it with the commentary on. Hopefully, the previous volumes will have more in-depth features.

Overall, this is still a fun & entertaining series & I'm glad I own it. I'm looking forward to completing the set.
