On episode 9 now. The Mr. Freeze episode has been my favorite so far. Quality writing.

Is this generally considered the best Batman animated media?

I dunno what else would come close to it. Batman Beyond, maybe? But I don't think that's on the same level.

Be sure not to skip Mask of the Phantasm. It's one of the best animated superhero movies ever and a really good batman tale all on its own

Yes.

If you're watching through the production order (as you should), you've already made it through the worst episodes. If the first one you watched was the Man-Bat episode, then that's the production order.

It's not just considered the best Batman animated media, but one of the best presentations of the character in general. But yeah... It's a great show.

There's a reason why they introduced Harley, Montoya, and Lockdown into the mainstream DC continuity.

Yes. They're also the ones that gave Riddler a suit instead of that weird-ass jumpsuit.

And then they went and gave him the jumpsuit back when they changed the artstyle. So dumb.

Im watching whatever order is on HBO Max. I think Man-Bat was second after a Catwoman episode.

You get some weird stuff if you follow the broadcast one.

I dont understand why theyre so different. I guess they didnt want to broadcast the lamer episodes first? But even then, I enjoyed Nothing to Fear and the Two Face episodes.

Pretty much. I mean, I think that, Batman Beyond and even The Batman are fairly well done, and different takes on the lore. Even Brave and the Bold isn't terrible.

Almost Got Em is great. Its so good there's even a board game based on that episode alone.

And Riddler did wear a suit, sometimes, in the 60's Batman show.

It was an insanely influential show in general. It did for action cartoons what Nicktoons did for kids shows, and The Simpsons for animated sitcoms.

IIRC, there's some fun trivia for that one. When Batman and Bruce are fighting, you can hear Mad Hatter's theme mixed into the background.

If you can multi-task, I usually like to pair my watching media with my gaming media. I played through the Arkham Knight series with Batman: TAS on in the background...highly recommend that pairing.

They should have just split the episodes up in volumes on HBO Max like how they did on the DVDs

  • 65 episodes were produced for Season One, due to it being the minimum number of episodes necessary for a TV series to be successfully syndicated. 60 of these episodes were initially aired during the 19921993 television season, which ran from September 1992 to May 1993. The final five episodes of Season One were held back until September 1993.
  • Episodes 1 to 28 were released on DVD in the Batman: The Animated Series Volume One set; episodes 29 to 56 in the Volume Two set; and episodes 57 to 85 in the Volume Three set.
