            What a crock of shit handwave excuse that is for a bad episode. Most of the early episodes you can analyze as an adult product even with it being aimed at a younger demographic, you can't say genuinely that episodes like Heart of Ice, Beware the Grey Ghost , and Feat of Clay have no merit because the show was a cartoon aimed at kids.

            BTAS is good because the art style, writing and tone mean that a lot of it is palatable for adults even though it's clearly not targeted at them. The kid-centric episodes suck because the kid characters are too annoying so it only appeals to kids.

    To me, it's kinda cheesy and goofy in some places and doesn't have an endgame going for it. It can get formulaic at times recycling the same Monster of the Week plot for some of Batman's rogues.

    Batman also tries too hard playing psychotherapist with some of the rogues later in the series, particularly with Poison Ivy, Two Face, Harley Quinn, and Ridler as examples.

    The best examples are the ones where there isn't any happy ending or resolution and Bruce continues to be Bruce. Cases like Baby Doll, Heart of Ice, The Demon's Quest, The Two-Face Two Parter, The Laughing Fish, and to an extent, The Joker's Favor are some of the best the series has to offer.

          it does not make a better show by having connection to other DC things, thats like saying Marvel movies are better films because of the cameos at the end, just cause it makes people do the soi face doesn't make it a better film.

      I tried watching it after Batman Beyond and couldnt get into it. Seemed way too goofy. Although I'm sure that as the show goes on it improves a lot and without btas we wouldnt have other Batman kinos.
      Still, I think S1 of Beyond is some of the best Batman content. It's a shame it kind of fizzled out and went nowhere with S2 and 3. Terry really lacked an arch nemesis like Blight and they started reusing villains.

          5 individual stories with complete and concise stories is every bit as good as 5 episodes that lead to a resolution/climax for a continued story. They both have strengths.

          This is such a narrow-minded outlook on cinema mainly because Bebop is miles ahead of ATLA. Not every story needs to start with a simplistic character becoming slightly more complex after going through a character "arc". Bebop is a story about characters fully formed and fleshed out from day 1. We don't see them grow a lot (but we do see them grow closer together) but rather the show reveals what kind of people they're, their traumas, their quirks, what compels them, and whatnot as it goes on. It's simply far more interesting than anything ATLA offers.

            i wish that were the case. also why are you dipshits responding with some generalized idealized concepts? what you're saying sounds good in theory. but the reality is that cowboy bebop's self contained stories mostly suck ass and aren't as enjoyable as atla's fully fleshed out lengthy story. bebop's handicapped by its shitty format unfortunately.

                You certainly seem like you care with all this seething. Most of the biggest tv series this past decade have been overarching stories(GOT to give an example). So the "normies" don't have a preference for either one.

                The funniest part about all of this is that, you're bringing the popularity argument to defend ATLA a hugely popular show amongst normies. Normie kids specifically, kek. You're a cretin. Just like every other ATLA manchild you spergout when people who enjoy other stuff don't like ATLA.

                If you don't want people to shit on your kiddie show, maybe try to not to shoehorn it into other discussions next time.

                what popularity argument? i didn't defend any show on the basis of its popularity. i just said that the media i like has more intelligent fans than the media you like while acknowledging that doesn't make it objectively better.
                >Just like every other ATLA manchild you spergout when people who enjoy other stuff don't like ATLA.
                what are you talking about? when did i say anything about people not being able to like atla? i said i disliked bebop and bats because of their episodic format - didn't say they were objectively bad or something - and then people got mad in response and called atla childish for some irrelevant reason. i never said you can't feel that way. it's just a weird response. but apparently atla fans often dislike other cartoons and this has angered people and made them feel insecure so it's something i'll keep in mind next time. and maybe lean into because it's kinda funny.

                yeah and sopranos has 86 episodes double the length, how can you watch anything if you make these arbitrary limits? every good show runs that long except for a few dramas and a few comedies

                So you're 80 IQ. You can't evan read what's being said explicitly. Let me put it simple words for you.
                1) You're a retard for trying to accuse others of having casual taste while dickriding one of the most casual/normie show of all time.

                but you can say someone has casual taste while enjoying a popular show yourself. it's about trends. that's not contradictory.
                >No they reason is you try to shit up unrelated threads.
                if you were worried about "unrelated threads" being shit up then you wouldn't even respond to me because this back and forth has created far more offtopic posting than the initial post. so your excuse makes no sense. what does make sense is that someone appreciating a more critically acclaimed series makes you feel insecure. you wish your episodic cartoon got more recognition. it's ok for you to like bats even if it's not as popular and can't tell as grand a narrative because it's limited by its format. i haven't watched it so i can't say for certain that it's bad or something. responding to me isn't going to make your favorite series more popular.
                >Most of the time it is
                maybe.
                >You're on the same level as Dora the explorer

                it's not. there's a difference between generally liking casual things and liking one thing that's casual.
                >Everything you dick rode ITT is popular mainstream crap.
                bats and cowboy bebop are pretty popular and mainstream.
                >Shitting on you prevents repeated behavior

      It isnt deep, it makes a lot of tearjerking stories and real life situations but all of them dont say anything important.

      Its a good story but its for kids, avatar the last airbender and adventure time are the same thing.

      Strange world where a kid grows up. And it touches on childhood emotions like jealousy and relationships not working out.

      Its nice but it has the story depth of a kids show. Only manchildren a die hard fans who would bring it up unprompted in a batman thread like a fucking gay.

    The entire Art Deco/Noir fusion art style is still my favorite aesthetic of all time and the only things that scratch my itch to see more are Bioshock and The Big O and both of them are primarily just Art Deco. Gotham was always portrayed as a gothic/noir/art deco city, at least in the modernish era of Batman, but none of the other styles grasped that mix of the high life and crusty switchblade filled alleys at a glance like BTAS, with maybe Tim Burton's Gotham coming the closest but constrained by live action sets. An Art Deco skyscraper backed with a dark red sky and a black facade sets the tone instantly.
    The intro is downright perfect too, Danny Elfman was composing out of his fucking mind back then.

    The early Batman episodes were great but as the series went on Batman as a character got flanderized and he became a mean spirited edgelord. Compare how he behaves with Baby Doll and how behaves with even his companions like Batgirl in later episodes. I maybe misremembering but I think this change occurred during the TNBA run or at least sometines before that. Conroy also became lazy and stilted.

      It's not getting flanderized. It's literally his character development. The longer he's Batman, the more he ostracizes others around him until he's just a bitter old man living in a mansion with nothing as his legacy.

        >. The longer he's Batman, the more he ostracizes others
        Character development needs to onscreen and it needs make sense. There aren't particularly any episodes of BTAS that "broke him". He's mostly sympathetic throughout the series and then starts being a dick to his own comrades.

        It also defeats the entire purpose of having characters like Batgirl and Robin. They're in theory supposed to make Batman open up more and for him to become an even bigger asshole for no specific reason after their arrival makes no sense.

        After looking at some of Bruce Timm's other works, I'm inclined to assign this to bad writing from him(he seems to love edgy/asshole Batman) than some smart character work.

            Which is precisely my point? This isn't the cause of him becoming a dick, this is him being a dick to his family.

            I Am the Night broke him. The one where Gordon gets shot.

            He ends the episode with a renewed sense of purpose with one minor criminal boy becoming reformed because of Batman's kindness. So no, that episode most definitely didn't break Batman.

          i don't mean to sound racist but when brown people talk about being brown on Cinemaphile it shatters my illusion of this being a cool place for white brethren to discuss things (i can't identify/empathize with brown people). i'd appreciate if you kept your race to yourself next time. thank you.

            that's your problem brah. If you travel and talk to people you'll find people just like yourself all over. I hopped on interpals and chatted up a thai girl who likes all the exact same video games, anime, and tv shows I like. She might as well be some chick from Toronto or something she's so westernized.

      The worst episodes are when they focus on some crap villains/characters and there's no intrigue in the story, e.g. the furry episode, the episodes with the recurring ninja from Batman's training days.

        Also want to say that both directing, sets, and especially music has incredibly degraded in the last few decades. For instance the classic meltdown sequence from "Homer Defined", not only features good directing but a fantastic score. This kind of direction and music are completely lacking from modern productions, most especially The Simpsons. But it was pretty standard back them.

        >Clock King
        Nice. Probably because they absolutely nailed it by making him a believable, if kooky character. Previously as far as the Adam West era went, he was just the weirdo of the week. I'm assuming there was some development in the comics since, but I dunno, I'm not really sure.

        Very true. Like the weird thing with the Simpson's for me is that I generally really dislike musicals. But I really enjoyed the Simpson's musical numbers. It just worked.

    Oh wow, turns out they made a bunch of direct to video movies that continue the continuity that I wasnt' aware of? I knew of Mask of the Phantasm already since it was a big deal and a feature film. The 2003 one is just really weird since it's so late, and I had never heard of it. That they were making 10 years of Batman shows set in this continuity is nuts for me.

    I guess I'll go ahead and watch them now?

    >Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero (1998; direct-to-video)

        It's just that for kids shows they tend to run on cycles. They produce a new show that replaces the old one and they just go on forever. After Batman they did Superman, then Justice League, but no new Batman for ages until the 00's. That gave a lot of time. But by 2003 Batman TAS would have long been off the air even for re-runs, replaced by the newer batman shows. Thus a Batman TAS direct to video in 2003 seems weird. Batman Beyond ended like 3 years previously.

        It's just weird that the last Batman TAS production is some weird direct to video 2003 movie is all. "Return of the Joker" feels much more in-line.

    I really like the Art Deco aesthetic, where you're not sure if it's supposed to be the 20's, 50's, 90's, or near-future. I mean yeah, he's got a supercomputer in the batcave but the cars look ancient.

    So what went wrong with Killing Joke anyways? Even aside from understandable padding out the runtime, they made the city look way too modern and Kevin Conroy sounded so unenthused and tired.

      I feel so old even thinking about this. I was gushing over the show with a high school chick like 20 years ago, and we talked about this very point. The series looks 1940's, with even only black and white tv's, but then you get super computers and advanced tech? It's weird. All of this is completely dropped for the sequel series.

      Even weirder, Batman Beyond moves this faux 1940's within someone's lifetime to supposedly the far future technology that we haven't even gotten to yet.

      The batgirl subplot is absolutely terrible for ways that have been described a million times.
      Setting it in the modern day with smartphones etc. takes away a lot of atmosphere.
      The animation is lazy. The comic is incredibly expressive but all the characters in the animated movie have blank faces the entire time.
      Zero artistic value - very plain location designs and flat, boring lighting with no interesting colours
      They just do the basic plot elements seemingly without understanding what made the story interesting
      Hamill and Conroy completely phone in their performances. Everyone has been wanting them to do this for years and there's not a single memorable line delivery. There are impressionists on Youtube who've done far better fan readings than in the movie.

        She's ultimately JUST a cop who is on the good side, but doesn't stand out like the others. She doesn't end up becoming, say Batgirl (which would be a perfect fit actually) so she never is that important. Gordan is memorable since he's the center of many plots and interacts with Batman.

        Harvey Bullock is extremely memorable and a scene stealer because he's this fat belligerent asshole. But to be honest, in-universe he's somewhat justified (it's not like he's a crooked cop, just distrusts batman).

        Renee thus is just stuck in this center of blandness where she doesnt' stand out and doesn't go anywhere.

      That's just the format, which I wish people would stop whining about. Someone was complaining in /a/ that most Urusei Yatsura episodes are mediocre, but then they have these 10/10 eps here and there. It's just the format of having to produce a lot of episodes in a short period where not all of them will be good. Just accept it, watch the good eps, and then skip the ones you don't like.

      I think Batman was like 65 eps per season which is way too much. I actually grew up on the show, and I remember seeing previews for new eps and it felt like for 2 years there was a new episode every week. I remember the ads for the episde where a street gets blown up.

      It's kinda like how rock is album focused, while other styles of music are more focused on singles. You pop in an album and it's a few great songs then filler. It's just how it is.

        Most cartoons around that time aimed to have 65 episodes because that meant you could show an episode every weekday for 3 months before starting the rotation over. That made it easy to sell the show to networks.

      Passion + budget. Only nerds can be this obsessive and focused. Modern corps are hiring smart phone obsessed normies who care what twitter thinks and actually have zero interest in sci-fi or fantasy. They actually think by injecting social commentary (ie. lecturing on feminist theory) they are actually raising it in quality.
