Is there no serious character development or action in this one at all, then?
There's action and character interplay, but in a comedic context. Basically it's like the most comical parts of the old show without the more serious parts. The first segment had some big action sequences but for a comical reason (and in a much more cartoony mode than in the old show), and the second had a supervillain subplot going on in the background while the characters were preoccupied with their personal/relationship issues.

I liked the first segment, which made me laugh a number of times. The second segment (which, interestingly, was written by Batman Beyond's lead actor Will Friedle) was more weird and offbeat and didn't appeal to my sense of humor. I suspect that, like the original show, it's going to be a mixed bag.
