Default Re: Batman: The Animated Series vs. The Batman

You can put me squarely in the camp of preferring BTAS, but that doesn't mean I didn't like The Batman, for a lot of the same reasons already stated here by others.(animation, etc.)
One thing I do think The Batman did better was the backgrounds, highly detailed, very atmospheric, while BTAS's backgrounds were kind of bland. A minor thing, though.
Overall I think the Batman had a lot of good points, it's problem was, the writing could sometimes be hit or miss, mostly in the first few seasons but I still think it wasn't as horrible as some fans think. I've always got the impression was a lot of hate for it was simply that it wasn't BTAS.
I actually sorta liked the fresh takes on the villians, (exept for maybe the Penguin, he was far too "Burtonish" for my tastes). There were a number of episodes, especially in the last couple of seasons that I thought were as good as any of the best BTAS eps. Too bad it got cancelled just when it was getting good.
