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 01

It, being the longest and acclaimed season of it all since this is where the scrutiny began which got the series its Emmy too. Since the season covers up more than half of the series, it comes with larger expectations to fill especially on terms of character development; the key that helps the viewers last long and enthusiast throughout the course of it. Also, it takes a smarter approach on projecting more of newer character's perspective (mostly its the villain), as it helps to create the anticipated impact.

Appointment In Crime Alley

Despite of having an advantage of the good old "race against time" factor, the episodes fails to maintains its audience because of the wafer thin script and gripping screenplay, missing out a great window on such a potential concept.
