Ep. 134 – BTAS – I Am The Night

Batman 1 - Episodio 34 Streaming ITA - CB01

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?

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!

Ep. 119 – BTAS – Day of The Samurai

Day of the Samurai" | DC Animated Universe | Fandom

The Good Brothers take a break from all of the sci-fi man-beasts for a good old-fashioned revenge tale. The culmination to the Batman/Ninja plot comes to an end as the hosts cover “Day of the Samurai”, the follow up to the Kyodai Ken saga that started in “Night of the Ninja.” The hosts discuss a variety including the sepia-toned bookends of the Wayne/Ken story, inconsistent animation that leads to some high highs and low lows. The hosts also discuss the cultural sensitivity for the Japanese culture being refreshing, the fantastic music and where this episode improved over the previous Ninja episode. Plus, the thread throughout that they believe could’ve been expounded on, an appreciation of Eric Rodomski’s background images, why this Batman feels truer to the character than some recent live-action portrayals, practicing the “fatal touch” as kids, and a discussion on the latest unfortunate news out of DC Comics.

Ep. 118 – BTAS – Moon of The Wolf

The unofficial Creature Feature month continues on the DCAU Review as the Good Brothers continue their month of Batman: The Animated Series coverage. This week our hosts review “Moon of the Wolf” which is based on a 1970s Neal Adams era Batman comic of the same title. Unfortunately for the hosts the comic seems to have been a bit more interesting as they quickly learn, due partly in fact to the return of Akom Production Co. as the team responsible for the animation. Other topics discussed include the lack of intelligence from each featured character, Bruce Wayne’s body dysmorphia, a soundtrack that introduces electric guitar for the first time to the DCAU soundtrack, speculation on the purpose of the cliffhanger ending, and a in-depth look at “Werewolfism.” Plus our hosts preview next week’s episode and highlight some connections from this episode to the larger DCAU continuity.

Tyger, Tyger" | DC Animated Universe | Fandom

Hard to believe we are already kicking off the month of August, but the calendar never lies, so the Good Brothers are kicking off the month with a return to where It all began, with Batman: The Animated Series episode “Tyger, Tyger.” The hosts discuss the H.G. Wells novel on which the episode is loosely inspired, the unsettling feelings one host has from some of the character designs,  a soundtrack that hits its spots where it has to, why it doesn’t make sense where this episode falls in production order, a struggle to find the moral of the story, and some Fleischer Superman vibes. Plus, a clinic in voice acting from the great Kevin Conroy, why there was no follow-up episode for Tygress, and a preview of next week’s episode on this week’s all-new DCAU Review podcast!

It’s a double feature for episode 91 of the DCAU Review as the Good Brothers cover “Cat Scratch Fever” and “The Strange Secret of Bruce Wayne” both from Batman: The Animated Series. It’s a vastly different set of episodes as Cal and Liam tear the first episode to shreds, from the animation to the plot to even some tepid voice-acting in the Catwoman-centric episode. How can a character be both too fluid and too stiff at the same time? Find out today as Cal and Liam delve deep into the story of the animation studio that earned the nickname “The kiss of death” with their poor animation! In the palate-cleansing second episode, our hosts enjoy a very comic-book storyline centered around the Dark Knight’s deepest secrets being exposed, and an ensemble cast made up of DCAU voice-acting legends.

Our hosts discuss the choice to make Kyodai Ken’s motivation go beyond straight revenge, another reference to a Batman ’66 plot device, more fleshing out of the Robin character, why Bruce was needlessly secretive about the Ninja and the uncharacteristic respect paid to Japanese culture found in this cartoon compared to others at the time.

Image result for laughing fish title card

As we move through the month of November, Cal & Liam have been on a bit of a hot streak as of late, with multiple episodes landing in the coveted “Top Picks” section here at the DCAU Review. This week the Good Brothers look to add to that with a Joker tale adapted from two different comics and written and produced by the dynamic duo of Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. This week’s episode covering The Laughing Fish discusses how Paul Dini’s unique writing style is a perfect fit for a Joker story, how the ridiculousness of the Joker seeking a patent is, more light shed on the Joker and Harley relationship explored and several memorable performances in voice acting and why one of our hosts believes this is the PERFECT Joker showcase. Could this be yet another episode for the Top Picks sections? Find out on today’s all-new episode of the DCAU Review!

Image result for robin's reckoning title card

In the 80th year of Batman’s existence, it’s only fitting that the 80th edition of the DCAU Review covers the origin story of one of the Caped Crusader’s greatest allies, the Boy Wonder, in the episode “Robin’s Reckoning.” The Good Brothers discuss the perfect storytelling of a pair of murders while keeping the episode kid-friendly, some of Loren Lester’s best work in Batman: The Animated Series as Robin, excellent shadow work and some inconsistencies in the animation, some insight into scenes cut for time and a soundtrack that accentuates the climatic ending of the episode.

Ep. 78 – BTAS – Eternal Youth & Perchance To Dream

Image result for eternal youth title cardImage result for perchance to dream title card

The month of November is here, and Cal & Liam kickoff a month of Batman: The Animated Series reviews with a double feature! Never before have there been two polar opposite episodes featured on one podcast as the Good Brothers discuss the episodes “Eternal Youth” and “Perchance To Dream.” First, the brothers have what can only be described as shared disdain for a bizarre episode featuring #MyAlfred and the never before seen or heard from again Maggie. The brothers are fairly harsh in their criticism and comparison to a lost Batman ’66 episode but this episode does bring about the largest score disparity to date and for only the second time in DCAU Review history, a point deduction!

Up next the guys discuss one of the most universally loved episodes where we learn what it would be like if Bruce never put on the cape and cowl and instead lived solely as Bruce Wayne. Cal and Liam talk about some great subtleties in the soundtrack, the psychology of Batman’s ability to be happy and talk foreshadowing throughout the episode! Of course, they have full scorecards for each episode and an exciting preview of next week’s all-new DCAU Review!

Episode 38 marks the return of the Scarecrow to Batman: The Animated Series, however it’s not one worthy of celebrating according to the Good Brothers.

It’s a super-sized Episode 6 of The DCAU Review! Cal & Liam discuss a pair of Batman:The Animated Series episodes on opposite ends of the scale when it comes to their scorecards. First up they cover an almost-universally despised episode 6, The Underdwellers. A controversial plot leaves the guys feeling uncomfortable and desperate to clean their palates with another episode. They then jump into covering one of the highest-scoring episodes to date, episode 7 entitled P.O.V. – an homage to the old Max Fleischer Superman cartoons of the 1940s and a story that relies heavily on non-Batman characters. Fun, laughs, full score cards for each episode, PLUS Liam’s #CapeMovement Corner all on this week’s edition of the DCAU Review!
