^I agree the past couple of episodes have been a bit mediocre, but B:TAS had a fair number of forgettable episodes early on. (Remember "The Underdwellers," "The Forgotten," and "I've Got Batman in My Basement"?)
No, I don't remember those,

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

I've been getting the DVD's of and enjoying Batman: Brave and the Bold over the last few months (I just need season 1 part one and Season 2 part 2). I just watched the last episode of the series, Mitefall. It was awesome, and on a short list for best TV series ending, but besides that it did show one thing I think is relevant to this topic. It was all about Bat-Mite wanting a new, more serious Batman show, and they did a fake, short CGI teaser for a Batgirl show.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOTh_oq1sFQ (slight B:TB&TB Mitefall spoilers)

Obviously this was just a joke, but it actually had much better animation and character designs than Beware the Batman (incuding the actually decent looking Batman design near the end). I'm sure however they did it was probably something that would be more expensive than BTB's animation, but I thought it was funny that Batman: TB&TB even does CGI Batman better than BTB

As great as 90s Batman was, there were TONS of godawful episodes. In fact I would say there was more bad than good.

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

A rehash of that Justice League episode. Not complaining, just pointing that out. And the Stagg Industries logo is basically an S with an I running through it, a dollar sign basically. Cute.

...it would've been nice if Rex and Sapphire could've been set up before this so we'd have some reason to care about Rex's transformation -- kinda like how B:TAS had Harvey Dent play a recurring good-guy role for a few episodes so his descent into Two-Face would have more impact.
I was satisfied. I like the idea of a build-up too, but it felt like they established the relationship well enough.

Either that or spumoni.

I still like the show as much as I always did. It's nice to see Bruce dating even if it's a set-up.

I thought this episode was pretty awesome. Batman and Katana working together and some good villains too. Plus we see the Soul Sword in action.

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

Not bad, though I'm a little unclear -- did Bruce really fire Alfred or was that just part of his test/plan? I guess he faked it in order to have an excuse to go to Bethanie and be "vulnerable" enough to be convinced to go to the Argus Club.

I would've liked it better if Tatsu had deduced for herself that Bruce was Batman. Really, that should've been the real test -- to see if she had the detective skills to figure that out.

Lady Shiva is fairly impressive as a big bad. A bit too quick to retreat, but maybe that just showed that she had more important matters to attend to than fighting Batman and Katana. Of course, I suppose Ra's will turn out to be the bigger big bad, but she's effective for now.

I agree with you about Tatsu. I thought that's what Bruce was testing her for.

Agreed about Lady Shiva as well. She's the first villain that really works for me so far. Even Silver Monkey's storyline was interesting.

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

Yeah, plot wise, I'm not sure what the point of the "firing" was. Did Bruce think ninjas were watching him at home and find him an easier target once he "fired" Alfred and Tatsu?

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

Reading up on Lady Shiva. She's a fascinating character. And I see that she's Cassandra Cain's mother. Somehow I don't see this show having the time or the opportunity to do anything with that, but you never know. I also see that Lady Shiva appeared on Birds of Prey. I don't remember that.

So, now that Katana is onboard with Batman, does she get a new costume?

As I said, maybe it was so that he'd appear to have something to be upset about, to give him an excuse to go to Bethanie and let her finally convince him to go to the club. Making Tatsu believe it too was part of her test, because...

Hm. Actually I don't have an explanation for that. It was a bit contrived.

A character named Lady Shiva appeared on BoP, but she had practically nothing in common with the comics' character.

I like her current look, but I suppose a mask would be a good idea, so that people don't start asking questions about why Bruce Wayne's bodyguard is running around with Batman all the time.

Bruce was a little out-of-character it seemed. Like his comment about getting too many credit card applications in the mail and that the insurance covered the damage to the limo. Seems like those are things that wouldn't be on the radar of a playboy tycoon.

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

I was wondering how Batman would get back to the cave without Katana noticing that they're headed toward Wayne Manor. Then we saw the tunnels and I'm thinking... How did Bruce manage to get all that made?

Thinking about it further, I suppose it could have been an old network of tunnels that he outfitted with lights. And maybe he has some sort of mechanism to shut everything down if the tunnels are ever discovered.

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

Old turn of the century mineshafts?

Emptied underground river?

What's the soultaker made out of.

Because it looks like it's designed so that when they have to make a shitty plastic toy version to give away with happy meals, its going to be piss easy.

Is it supposed to be jade, or copper, which has turned green like the statue of liberty?

And why do the characters on the sword look like Celtic runes more so than Japanese symbols?

It also looked like there was an indentation on the sword where a gemstone was supposed to be.

So, um, the sword's special power is that it kills people in a way that's slower than stabbing them?
