Batman Beyond>>>Batman TAS
Eh, I like em both really. Though Beyond I wanna say takes a slight lead, if only because its a different Batman who is new and has different issues and everything and its not the same old same old Bruce that everyone has seen for like 60+ years. Terry does get the short end of the stick though, which is kinda a shame cause he could make a great future Batman seeing as he was molded in from the start to become Batman, so it fits nicely.
I do like both. But I very much prefer Batman:TAS. It may start out a bit lacking but as it goes on it just keeps getting better and better.
TAS has a bit of an unfair advantage over Beyond being that so many iconic characters are readily available for use whereas Beyond ends up making up a lot of their characters and stories.
I prefer Beyond too. Terry Mcginnis stole the show, in my opinion. I loved his interaction with Bruce, the suit, and his struggle with everyday life. The one thing I think TAS lacked was showing Bruce's human side and struggle. If I remember correctly, we only saw Bruce at his parents' grave, on dates, etc. I disliked the ending of Beyond, though. Having Terry's dad's DNA be rewritten was completely bizarre. In addition, I liked Terry before he became so buff. The agile, fast look of the bat-suit is awesome. However, when Bruce or Terry look like beefcakes inside, the traditional comic book figure silliness is evident. I loved it in JL, but I did not like it much in any of the Batman series.
They're the same show with different time periods. Hard to say one's better than the other.
Exactly, you really can't have Batman Beyond without Batman: TAS. They're both in the same universe and follow the same continuity, so really Batman Beyond could easily be seen as another season of Batman: TAS with just a huge time jump.
