Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Epic Win or Epic Fail?


I have mixed feelings about this cartoon. On a positive note, it has introduced several lower-key DC characters to the small screen (eg Blue Beetle and the Spectre), revived old and forgotten enemies, even creating new ones (Music Meister) and showing a quality of Batman that is rarely seen today; the willingness to co-operate with others in his missions and not go all secret squirrel on everyone.
 
On the other hand, the series is... camp. Almost Adam West camp. Batman is often not shown as dark or brooding as many would like, and, let's face it, the new Joker lacks the chaotic and menacing aura  of the 1990s animated series. 
 
So, what do you think of the cartoon? Epic Win? Epic Fail? Somewhere in between? 
 
Be brave and bold, tell us what you like and don't like about it, and how it may be improved.
