JB, did you think that the 70's Filmation New Adventures of Batman cartoon did a much better job of capturing the first half of the live action 60's Batman TV show, as well as the portrayal of Batman and the other characters from the comics? Did you find that animated series to be a little more serious than the live action series?

No.

That 70's Filmation series is a bit of a dog's breakfast IMO.

I had to look that phrase up. I love it!

I've avoided this, but I may have to buy the sequel.  They've cast William Shatner as the voice of Two-Face.  Even if its a car wreck, I think I'm going to have to rubberneck.

I watched a few clips, which was more than enough to sate my curiosity.  It's like a parody of the 60s show, which is rather like doing a spoof of a Mel Brooks movie.

Overall, I liked it. Adam West's voice has noticeably aged, but is still robust. Burt Ward has retained a lot of his youthful Robin voice (since he was an adult when the show ran, I guess it's not much of a stretch). Julie Newmar seemed the least recognizable. The new voices of The Riddler, Penquin, and Joker captured the flavor of the originals, especially the Joker.

I think it worked as a decent sequel to the BATMAN movie. Struck a similar tone, used similar gags.

And...we almost got thru the whole thing without a fart. Unless we're to think the Joker had a whoopee cushion in his pants...

And they used the Neal Hefti theme music (not the "Batman" chorus, just the music).

I agree that doing a parody of a parody is wrong headed but I thought this had a very smart joke that they should've taken all the way: that "Evil Batman"'s behavior (after being poisoned by Catwoman) is pretty much the regular modern Batman behavior contemporary fans are accustomed to.

Seen it. It was ok. I wish they had gotten Mark Hamill to
voice the Riddler. Gorshin had a wind up to his space
pattern that I've heard Hamill do to perfection. The voice
actor playing the Riddler doesn't even attempt it.

Also, Andrea Romano is no longer voice directing these
DTV's. Wes Gleason does an ok job, but for some reason,
the few he's done all sound flat.

Well, yes. He's my favorite Joker ever. But, for a Ceasar
Romaro Joker, he wouldn't be my first choice. If you saw
him in JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK, he was doing a
pretty good Frank Gorshin. Vocally, he understands the
cadence, and it's right in his vocal range.
