A different take, then, on the more established tenets of the character, but one that worked nonetheless.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

This shift in style is a little jarring at first, but it's well worth the watch if only for the new versions of classic villains.

Jul 10, 2018 | Full Review…

While The Batman never achieved the critical success, or fan following, of its predecessor, it was a great show in its own right for attempting to do something fresh with many familiar characters.

Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…

The episodes relied heavily on action scenes, and tried to dress up the look of the characters with an edgy redesign that wasn't exactly well executed. It's still watchable, however.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The show keeps keen old school bat-fans happy and also appeals to a whole new audience.

Jun 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The Batman is a remarkably coherent, fun show, with lots of action, great moody sets, and exciting pacing.

Audience Reviews for The Batman: Season 1

  • Oct 10, 2019
    While WB's prime time animated series Justice League and Teen Titans were garnering massive fan appeal, Glen Murakami strikes us with a lovely revamp of the Dark Knight for the new millenium. Despite the change of scenery, Rino Romano (Spider-Man Unlimited, Spider-Man 2000, Star Wars KOTOR) is refreshing as the Batman of the Murakanime era, who has been guarding the streets of Gotham for three years. The main theme of this season is trust and the initial cracks within Gotham PD in accepting Batman as an ally (symbolized in Ethan Bennet, whose fate in the season finale is tragic). As with Teen Titans, the look of the show is characteristic of Glen Murakami's (and Jeff Matsuda's) blend of WB and Japanese animation, providing us with excellent atmosphere and somewhat weird changes to the popular characters (Mr. Freeze and the Penguin are awful). All in all, for any WB animation fan this is a must see.

    One of the best TV shows ever!

    The Batman isn't as good as Batman the animated series but still has some great episodes and is highly entertaining.

    Amazing show with great new takes on the classic and not well known members of batmans rouges gallery, Firefly especially was amazing and I now want him in more Batman media.

    I didn't care for the revamp on the bad guys.
