Cal and Liam are here with a surprise bonus episode to discuss the details of the Batman: Caped Crusader featurette shown at the 2021 DC Fandome, which revealed that Bruce Timm will be joined by fellow DCAU Legend James Tucker in the production of the series. The Good Brothers share their reaction to Mr. Timm's comments that this series will be "more Batman: The Animated Series than Batman: The Animated Series." and confirmation of the prediction made by the hosts in a prior bonus episode that this show will be in the same vein as the Batman: Strange Days short produced for the Batman 75 celebration. They also discuss how the addition of Mr. Tucker to the team could quell the fears of those fearful of a modern Timm-led project, and a roundup of other DC Animated reveals on this special bonus edition of the DCAU Review!

Ep. 153 – BTAS – Mudslide

The Man Who Killed Batman | Mudslide | The BATTASS Podcast

Continuing with another review of a classic Batman: The Animated Series cartoon, the Good Brothers continue in the second episode of the Clayface saga, titled “Mudslide.” The hosts talk a plot that has its ups and downs including an odd twist that ends up making Batman out to be a villain in the same vein as Ferris Boyle. Visuals steal the show however as a relatively unknown animation studio incorporates some elements of horror and old Hollywood lore to create an outstanding treat for the eyes. Cal and Liam also discuss another masterful score from the legendary Shirley Walker and a small but powerful voice cast that leans heavily on Batman and Alfred working on the main investigation and yet another great episode title card. All of this and a preview of next week’s episode await you on this week’s DCAU Review

Joker | Das Batman-Projekt | Seite 11

It’s not an April Fool’s joke, the month of April is here and that means the Good Brothers are on to another month of reviews, this time returning to Batman: The Animated Series picking up where they last left off with the production order and the episode “The Man Who Killed Batman.” Liam and Cal discuss this episode that usually ranks high on most people’s lists of top BTAS episodes of all time. Hear them discuss a plot out of the zany, dark-humored mind of Paul Dini with directing and partial storyboards by Bruce Timm that has almost no Batman screen time, another legendary voice performance by Mark Hamill that includes his favorite monologue of the series, and a scene that made one of the hosts jump out of their seat with excitement. Plus an organ-heavy soundtrack from Shirley Walker and a great story about Arleen Sorkin’s kazoo performance! All of this, a preview of next week’s episode, and an update on the fan poll for inducting an episode into the Top Picks section on this week’s all-new DCAU Review!

Dark Heart

March is here and that means as the calendar page turns, Cal & Liam switch series, returning to cover Justice League Unlimited and the episode “Dark Heart.” This seminal episode lays the groundwork for some of the larger plot points used for the Cadmus arc that would define the #JLU, but this week the Good Brothers discuss a plot that asks the question “just what IS nanotechnology anyway?” Hear the hosts talk action that at the time seemed grand but now looks a lot like every superhero blockbuster, more out-of-place CGI, some wonky character models, and some of Batman’s new toys. Plus how the JLU greenlit episodes that focused on C-List level heroes, a pair of really solid voice performances from two very recognizable guest voice actors, and why the episode may be in line to be canceled in the future.

Ep. 147 – Batman Beyond – Sneak Peek

As we continue with our month of Batman Beyond reviews, we come to an oft-forgotten episode titled “Armory” which asks the age-old question, “What would you do to keep your lavish lifestyle intact, after losing your job due to corporate downsizing?” Okay, so maybe that’s not that much of an age-old question, but never fear because the Good Brothers are here to answer it anyway! Hear Cal and Liam discuss a plot complete with outdated technology and gender roles, what would make the average person go from zero to treason in no time, featuring a main-baddie that doesn’t talk which allows for action and music to be brought to the forefront. Plus the hosts list the voice cast, making an argument for a surprising addition to the DCAU Mt. Rushmore of voice-actors, and discuss #MyWarMachine(?!?) making his voice heard as Armory. All of this, more talk about Terry forgetting the suit’s invisibility, and much more on this week’s all-new DCAU Review!

Ep. 118 – BTAS – Moon of The Wolf

The unofficial Creature Feature month continues on the DCAU Review as the Good Brothers continue their month of Batman: The Animated Series coverage. This week our hosts review “Moon of the Wolf” which is based on a 1970s Neal Adams era Batman comic of the same title. Unfortunately for the hosts the comic seems to have been a bit more interesting as they quickly learn, due partly in fact to the return of Akom Production Co. as the team responsible for the animation. Other topics discussed include the lack of intelligence from each featured character, Bruce Wayne’s body dysmorphia, a soundtrack that introduces electric guitar for the first time to the DCAU soundtrack, speculation on the purpose of the cliffhanger ending, and a in-depth look at “Werewolfism.” Plus our hosts preview next week’s episode and highlight some connections from this episode to the larger DCAU continuity.

The hosts also discuss the myriad of interesting visuals on The Preserver’s ship, including one important background cameo that would be a storyline thread in another DCAU show. The guys also talk about the great soundtrack and the uniqueness that adds to the Lobo character itself as well as the iconic voice performance from  Brad Garrett and an early appearance from another voice actor that would go on to play an important baddie on Batman Beyond. All of this, a full scorecard and much more await you on this week’s DCAU Review

It’s a double feature for episode 91 of the DCAU Review as the Good Brothers cover “Cat Scratch Fever” and “The Strange Secret of Bruce Wayne” both from Batman: The Animated Series. It’s a vastly different set of episodes as Cal and Liam tear the first episode to shreds, from the animation to the plot to even some tepid voice-acting in the Catwoman-centric episode.

Find out today as Cal and Liam delve deep into the story of the animation studio that earned the nickname “The kiss of death” with their poor animation! In the palate-cleansing second episode, our hosts enjoy a very comic-book storyline centered around the Dark Knight’s deepest secrets being exposed, and an ensemble cast made up of DCAU voice-acting legends.

Image result for laughing fish title card

As we move through the month of November, Cal & Liam have been on a bit of a hot streak as of late, with multiple episodes landing in the coveted “Top Picks” section here at the DCAU Review. This week the Good Brothers look to add to that with a Joker tale adapted from two different comics and written and produced by the dynamic duo of Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. This week’s episode covering The Laughing Fish discusses how Paul Dini’s unique writing style is a perfect fit for a Joker story, how the ridiculousness of the Joker seeking a patent is, more light shed on the Joker and Harley relationship explored and several memorable performances in voice acting and why one of our hosts believes this is the PERFECT Joker showcase.

In the 80th year of Batman’s existence, it’s only fitting that the 80th edition of the DCAU Review covers the origin story of one of the Caped Crusader’s greatest allies, the Boy Wonder, in the episode “Robin’s Reckoning.” The Good Brothers discuss the perfect storytelling of a pair of murders while keeping the episode kid-friendly, some of Loren Lester’s best work in Batman: The Animated Series as Robin, excellent shadow work and some inconsistencies in the animation, some insight into scenes cut for time and a soundtrack that accentuates the climatic ending of the episode.

Ep. 78 – BTAS – Eternal Youth & Perchance To Dream

Image result for eternal youth title cardImage result for perchance to dream title card

The month of November is here, and Cal & Liam kickoff a month of Batman: The Animated Series reviews with a double feature! Never before have there been two polar opposite episodes featured on one podcast as the Good Brothers discuss the episodes “Eternal Youth” and “Perchance To Dream.” First, the brothers have what can only be described as shared disdain for a bizarre episode featuring #MyAlfred and the never before seen or heard from again Maggie. The brothers are fairly harsh in their criticism and comparison to a lost Batman ’66 episode but this episode does bring about the largest score disparity to date and for only the second time in DCAU Review history, a point deduction!

Up next the guys discuss one of the most universally loved episodes where we learn what it would be like if Bruce never put on the cape and cowl and instead lived solely as Bruce Wayne. Cal and Liam talk about some great subtleties in the soundtrack, the psychology of Batman’s ability to be happy and talk foreshadowing throughout the episode! Of course, they have full scorecards for each episode and an exciting preview of next week’s all-new DCAU Review!

Ep. 77 – STAS – Heavy Metal

The month of October is nearly over and with that, it’s almost time for the Good Brothers to turn over a new leaf and change DCAU shows.

Image result for fear of victory
Episode 38 marks the return of the Scarecrow to Batman: The Animated Series, however it’s not one worthy of celebrating according to the Good Brothers. Cal & Liam hold nothing back when it comes to dissecting this episode’s choice for plot including the ridiculousness of Scarecrow’s scheme, lazy animation choices, fluttering mustaches and questionable voice acting from one of the series’ top players. Could this episode possibly rank lower than their most infamously hated episode?
