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!
Continuing their stay in Gotham City, the Good Brothers review another episode of Batman: The Animated Series. This week’s episode, aptly titled “Mad As A Hatter”, introduces the Mad Hatter to the DCAU. The guys discuss the awkward real-world present-day societal implications of the obsessive Jervis Tech, a missed opportunity for some whimsical character designs, the excellent voice work from the late Roddy McDowall and how this episode might have fared better as a horror-esque episode. Plus the guys give their usual scorecard for the entire episode!
