Batman: The Animated Series (1992)
A must-watch for any comic fan
Comic books are a wonderful thing. They broaden our imagination and give us detailed stories with gorgeous artwork.
Consider Batman: The Animated Series a moving comic book.
The characters, story, and tone make this THE best comic book TV show to date. But, before I go into detail, a summary.
Driven by the merciless murder of his parents, respected philanthropist Bruce Wayne moonlights as a costumed crime-fighter deemed the Batman, who aims to strike fear into the hearts of crooks and criminals. Aiding Batman is his faithful butler Alfred Pennyworth, his ward and sidekick Dick Grayson AKA Robin, and Police Commissioner James Gordon. Constantly battling his inner demons, Batman embarks on various misadventures to save his city and the people he loves.
Come on, even if you aren't a comic book fan, that sounds pretty awesome. The stories were a mix of original adventures and faithful re tellings of classic superhero stories. The maturity of the content makes me question how this could ever be considered a "Children's show". The stories are intense, clever, and even at times, heartbreaking or frightening. Well, here's where you watch the first episode! If you liked it, watch the rest. If you want more, B:TAS spawned it's own entire universe (Entitled the DC Animated Universe) of numerous TV shows, comic books, and video games. Think of the DCAU as the same thing that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is today. A collection of stories that all tie in and share continuity.
This is without a doubt, a landmark in media history. 10/10
