Ep. 134 – BTAS – I Am The Night

I Am the Night | Batman:The Animated Series Wiki | Fandom

The Good Brothers are wrapping up the month of November with a review of Batman: The Animated Series episode “I Am The Night”, which tends to place high on most people’s “Best Of BTAS” lists. The hosts discuss a variety of topics including how this episode made it past standards and practices based on the very adult subject matter, why this episode wasn’t a favorite growing up, Batman in his feelings, animation that wasn’t the best, who the Jazzman best resembles, Batgirl foreshadowing and a sneaky retroactive Easter Egg from the very first episode of Batman Beyond. Plus the chemistry between Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester shines, music that is just about perfect despite not being all that memorable and a sequence that wouldn’t be out of place in the Snyder-verse all on this week’s DCAU Review!

Ep. 133 – BTAS – What is Reality?

Batman has to battle the Riddler in a trippy VR sequence in an attempt to rescue Commisioner Gordon on this week’s review of the Batman: The Animated Series episode “What is Reality?” and the Good Brothers are up to the task. Cal and Liam go heavy on plot and visuals discussing yet another AKOM studios gaffe-filled production that includes what one host believes is the worst mistake they’ve ever seen in animation. They also break down one of the most fun sequences throughout the entire series as Batman fights Edward Nygma inside a video game and uncover some foreshadowing of the third Riddler episode.  Plus they discuss how everything in this episode is Robin’s fault, whether or not Edward’s scheme makes any sense, a debate on the effective use of music, and yet another legendary performance by the great John Glover as this week’s antagonist and how subtleties in his performance reveal some of the Riddler’s insecurities. Plus a preview of next week’s episode and an announcement regarding our second annual Black Friday Bonus Episode on this week’s all-new DCAU Review!
