Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Right off the bat, a great two-part episode opens the third, and final, four-disc set that completes the DVD release of this Emmy Award–winning series. But in "Shadow of the Bat," a new crime fighter joins the club. She is Barbara Gordon, Commissioner Gordon's lithe young daughter, a.k.a. Batgirl. And as her unwitting father remarks, "She's as welcome in Gotham City as the Batman." The same could be said of all the women of Batman: When they're good, like Barbara, they are very, very good. But when they are bad, like "clever little minx" Harley Quinn and Catwoman, they are absolutely terrific. (The more comedic Harley episodes, "Harlequinade" and "Harley's Holiday," are particularly entertaining.) The "grim, stalwart Dark Knight" faces the familiar who's-who assortment of warped master criminals (among them, the Joker, Harvey "Two-Face" Dent, and Roland Daggett). Among the most formidable is Bane, a chemically charged hulk who wears a mask out of Mexican wrestling. Several episodes feature some intriguing alliances: Batman and the ancient Ra's Al Ghul in "The Demon Quest"; Batman and nemesis cop Harvey Bullock in "A Bullet for Bullock"; Batman and Harley in "Harlequinade"; and Batgirl and Catwoman in "Batgirl Returns." To the end, the series did the Batman franchise justice with its boldly stylized animation, compelling stories, literate scripts, and exemplary voice work. As the handful of commentaries demonstrate, the series' creators approached their work with reverence for Batman's storied history and many incarnations. So the disappointment is palpable in the last words spoken in the final episode, "Batgirl Returns." As Catwoman gets away yet again, Batgirl restrains Robin from pursuing her. "It's okay," she says. "There'll be another time." Not for this series, unfortunately.

    I am always impressed with this one. As usual the Music and the Plot are great. In this one particularly, 'The Shadow of the Bat' is just amazing these two chapters big time some of my favorites..... The age? well I am 26 and I find this so COOL. I remember I watched the first chapter on a black and white TV I believe was 'A Bat in my Basement" I'll give 5 deserved stars.... and more!!!

    Simply Amazing...Again!!!

    Just as with the previous two volumes, at 24 years old i still find this to be one of the most amazing,greatly written, greatly animated shows of all time. I remember enjoying this with my dad everyday after school as a child and i never understood why "a grownup" loved this cartoon as much as he did. It appeals to both adults and children of all ages with the beautiful combination of dark and bright tones & colors along with the superb story lines. Definitely a must for cartoon fans especially those of Batman.

    The Best of the Three

    I truly enjoyed this one the most. It made me laugh, it made me laugh some more, but all in all it is full of excitement. The episodes are the best they have ever been. And from the villians admitting to that it's not batman's fault that they are the way they are, to the change of the show's title to The adventures of Batman and Robin. It is really great
