The animation is great, Warners continues to have it down in this area. Bryan Cranston as Gordon was a good fit and I didn't realize it till it was over but Eliza Dushku felt right for Selina/Catwoman as well. Where this drops off for me a lot is that as soon as I heard the voice for Wayne/Batman I did NOT feel it was right. Ben McKenzie just didn't feel like a good fit for me. When the main character isn't right I just can't give it an A grade despite enjoying the rest of it so much.

The story itself was told very true in spirit, as I recall it, to the Miller Year One story back in the late 80's. A friend of mine who watched it before I did and thought Commissioner Loeb was a nod to Jeff Loeb. I felt a bit better with my memory on that moment and told him he needed to dig out a TPB cause it's not a nod. Loeb was the actual character in the story long before Jeff came onto the DC scene.
