Tune in to hear Cal & Liam go over the intricate plot, the choice to use the Joker strictly as a supporting character, and one of the coolest scenes in Batman animation history. Plus, with two characters that feature their own personal capes, we get DOUBLE the #CapeMovement in Liam’s Cape Movement Corner! All of this, a full episode scorecard and much more on this week’s DCAU Review!

Image result for batman animated the forgotten title cardRolling right through the early days of Batman: The Animated Series, it’s episode 7 of The DCAU Review! This week the brothers cover The Forgotten, an episode that tends to end up on the lower end when people rank DCAU episodes, but that holds a dear place in Cal & Liam’s hearts. Topics discussed include whether or not the episode is able to effectively say anything on a controversial social issue, another unforgettable soundtrack, Liam’s #CapeMovement corner, and a special cameo discussion about Taft from The Tick Animated Series!

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!
