Batman: The Animated Series

One of the most successful and loved franchise of Batman, depicts the comic version at its best by going deep into the character's perspective rather than trying to cover-up or justify its sketchy tone. The animation is not only convincingly good but also seems like a lot of thought is invested on its cinematography which for the most part of it works on metaphorical way. Kevin Conroy seems the apt choice to be the voice of Batman (although not so sure about Bruce Wayne) and so does Robert Hastings for Commissioner James Gordon as it has the right amount of depth in it. A smarter approach by the makers by narrowing it down to only 20 minutes and get right to the point, keeping the audience engaged. It also brings in bigger cast like Mark Hamill to do the voice over of Joker, which is done with genuine passion and enthusiasm that is clearly visible on screen. Addition to that, the makers keep some of the villains under their sleeve and uses it as a trump card whenever felt necessary that helps in continuity and glue all individual cases as much as possible.

Season 04

At this point, in this season, it becomes crystal clear that the makers have decided to draw in their big bucks through it, to a point where they are ready to sacrifice quality over money. Drunk and influences under its commercial aspect, there barely resides a frame that speaks art let along an episode; a disappointing decision.

The Lion And The Unicorn

Finally, focusing on a character that has been around since day and still is undercooked, which still doesn't mean it gets the appropriate range and room to factor in, it still in the end relies upon clashing the two opposite sides of the coin with gunpowder.
