I'm still stuck that Batman the animated series was, and is the best Batman on t.v. Animation wise or even film. I feel the same for Justice League Unlimited for it's own reasons, but my point is this. I'm going to compare Beware the Batman to BTAS. BTAS was great because of the focusing on it's villains. Getting in their heads. Sympathy for them. Seeing why they're nuts. Does Beware do the same thing? Does it come off like a show for adults as much as kids? I tried it once and thought it was crap, and figured I'd wait and see what other people said. I didn't like Young Justice at first either, but I think that show goes toe to toe with Justice League and JLU. The voice over work isn't as good, but the story is there, and the action is there. I'm hoping Beware is the same. I'm not crazy about reviews on this site, at least not the ratings they give. they give to many posatives, so I want to what the memebers think.

What you can do is watch the first episode and if you like it, go on to the next?

In my opinion its been great so far. Im a couple episodes behind at this point but unless its taken a ridiculous downturn in quality the past 2 episodes then I can safely recommend it. Though it just sounds like your going to hate it no matter what. Just the fact that you said that you don't agree with the reviews of episodes that you haven't seen yet because they have too many positives tells me that much. If you do nothing but compare it to the old DCAU then you aren't going to enjoy it simply because you are looking for things to dislike no matter how conscious you may be of it.

Is a great show, it focuses on less known villains, and it does a great job. At first I didn't liked the CGI animation, but I got used to it, is a very good show.

Some of the villains have more depth than others so far, but it feels like a show for adults despite the guns.

It also has an ongoing story arc and character development between Batman, Alfred, and Katana.

It has it's issues, but it's enjoyable and worth giving a chance.

I haven't seen any yet, but I still LOOL at their choice of rogues.

well i can't blame them from trying to differentiate from the older versions. i mean everyone of the has had Joker, they are trying probably to create and construct other villains as well. we'll see the main ones soon enough

It's really growing on me. The voice actor does a superb job in my opinion, the change pace is refreshing and it definitely shows off a well balanced Batman in terms of capabilities.

I did not like it at first but I am slowly getting to like it.

I actually enjoy it.

I heard good things about it, but I am hesitant to give my time to it when it will inevitably be cancelled before they can enjoy its full potential.

It's ok. Nothing fantastic but it's pretty good.

It's decent enough to watch but not a must see show. And certainly not the kind of show that gets you super-excited for the next episode, like Young Justice or Justice League.

And while the decision to use leser known villains is admirable, it is poorly handled in my opinion. There's definitely not a lot of, if any, getting inside the villains' heads and sympathizing for them. Not a single villain has truly stood out so far

nope. waste of money. a flash series would've been better.

I hate the animation/art, but aside from that I enjoy it. Certainly won't come close to TAS, but I like it about as much as I liked The Batman (which was quite a bit; certainly more than Brave and the Bold).

It will never be Batman the Animated series, but its good for what it is. It's alright, but wouldn't hurt using some more well known Bat-villains. You don't have to use Joker or Catwoman, but maybe b-listers like Man-Bat, Killer Croc, Killer Moth, Ventriloquist, Hush, Mad Hatter, Doctor Hurt, KG Beast, etc. wouldn't hurt to have some more exposure.

Agreed. I love the voice for Batman in this series, he's becoming a personally favorite as I feel he knows how to play both Batman and Bruce Wayne.

@war_killer: Agreed! I'm really starting to love Anthony Ruvivar's Batman voice.
