Did anyone pick up the Beware the Batman DVD that came out on Tuesday? I just watched the two unaired episodes, Attraction and Fall. Attraction featured the return of Magpie and a disposeable episode. But Fall was really good.
Just watched the two unaired episodes and I agree. Attraction wasn't that great (sorry, Len Wein) but Fall was one of the best BtB episodes yet. From the larger scope and setting to the fight scenes, the series is developing nicely. The Alfred/Bruce moments were some of the best I've seen -- including televised or in print -- and this version of Alfred gave them a unique twist on the traditional by his very nature.

My one complaint: a cliff-hanger? With this show's sketchy broadcast scheduling, this story won't be resolved until Netflix agrees to air the "lost episodes" approximately a year from now, if we're lucky.

GL:TAS was supposed to be on netflix quite some time ago so I wouldn't even count on that.

About the scope, yeah, there was actually a few cars on the road in Gotham!

Well, they were probably hoping for a longer run when they originally made that cliffhanger. I wish we could have gotten a conclusion too though.

The cancellation isn't surprising, given CN's narrowing demographic objectives in recent years, but it's disturbing that they don't even seem to intend to air the rest of the series. Maybe Netflix could come to the rescue again like they did for The Clone Wars?

I note that there's a new Scooby-Doo series in the lineup which sounds like it could be picking up from the finale of Mystery Incorporated. That doesn't necessarily mean the same creative team will be involved, but the cancellation of Beware the Batman could free up Mitch Watson to return to Scooby-Doo and make this new show a worthy successor to SDMI. In which case there'd be something positive coming from this, at least. But that's purely speculative at this point.

Excited to hear about the new Scooby series. Hopefully it does pick up after Mystery Inc. and they can maintain the same quality.

Though I find myself annoyed at the stories that Cartoon Network is "reviving" Scooby Doo. They've been reviving the show for over a decade...it's not something that's happening for the first time.

Figured that was going to happen to Beware the Batman but too bad. Here's hoping for a Netflix revival.

Teen Titans Go got renewed? I'm not at all excited by that news.

At least now we know there's 15 unaired episodes. That's more than Clone Wars!

Sad but not surprised about Beware the Batman. It was really starting to pick in quality, so I am very disappointed that it won't be coming back.

Re: "Beware the Batman" in 2013! New Animated Series

Well with 15 unaired episodes that's a big incentive to bundle them all together with the released episodes and do one large series set.
Double Dip on those who bought the "Pt.1 set", bill it as the Series and stamp those stickers on there proclaiming 15 UNAIRED EPISODES!!!

That's what I'll buy when they are ready.

I will bet the rest of the series will be broadcast by Netflix under a Season 2 banner.

Re: "Beware the Batman" in 2013! New Animated Series

For goodness sakes, how much does it cost to burn some episodes onto dvds and sell them over the internet? If they can't make even a few bucks doing that, they have no business being in business.

Hell, they don't even need to put them on disc, they can just put on Netflix like others have said, or sell them as digital exclusives through ITunes, Google Play, Amazon, ect.

I like how everyone is saying the unaired episodes show be shown on Netflix. If Netflix does that too much with canceled shows, they are going to become known as television's dumping ground.
