A mediocre episode, but you gotta admit the lighting here is super cool.
BTAS Episode: The Forgotten
Eh, that one was a bore.
I loved that one. Especially the music in it.
Besides the climax this was a pretty average episode. I still enjoy it. I agree with ThePhantasm about the lighting in that fight between Batman and that goon at the end. It was "super cool" and added some grit and edginess to the confrontation. It's been a while since I've seen this ep., but I think Heather Locklear was the voice of that blonde woman that Batman saves at the end.
I enjoy The Forgotten. It also had a great score by Walker with that harmonica, which adds a southern blue-sy vibe to this adventure. Everytime I think about this ep. the first thing that comes to mind is Walker's score and that slobby glutton.
I remember this chilling image (before it fades into Bruce) was used for the Fox promos back in the Summer of 92. Then it showing or saying"coming this fall". Man was that exciting to see as a kid.
With episodes like The Forgotten... you could clearly see the influence of Sean Catherine Derek.
She liked to approach the stories with a message and teach kids something. I guess this was her episode about homelessness.
One of my favorite shows of all time. Hardly an episode in it that I flat out dislike.
And am I the only one that doesn't make a big deal out of the redesigns? I mean, some of them are lame looking, but the writing for the show was just as good. In fact, some of the episodes from Vol. 4 are the best of the series.
Thought I would post some trivia I found in the wikia pages
Prophecy of Doom
That is neat they threw in a reference to CCR (one of my favorite band.)
Heart of Ice
Just thought I'd share this video for all the Batman fanatics =P
One thing looking back that I wish the series had was greater continuity..
There is continuity with a few episodes and some of the self contained stories are great.. but after I really enjoyed the season long stories contained in Spectacular Spiderman and even Gargoyles back in the days.
Yes there was some continuity amongst some episodes and Justice League Unlimited showed that Timm and company can tell overarching stories...I just wish the original animated series had more.
Watched The Last Laugh where Batman throws Begins/Nolanesque shaped Batarang It's like Timm & Co saw the future. :eeek:
Watching The Forgotten now.
BTAS Episode: Mad as a Hatter
Okay, this right here. As a kid I figured he squeezed the juice out of the roses. (Because of course flowers have juice.) But judging by Alice's reaction, apparently he actually cut his finger on the thorns. Normally they weren't allowed to show blood, but apparently they slipped a little in there.
Mad Hatter was one of those villains I didn't really care for in BTAS. I preferred him in Arkham City. Roddy McDowell (sp?) was pretty good as him, too, though I prefer Peter MacNichol.
Nah I didn't really like him that much in Arkham City.
B:TAS' Mad Hatter is the defnitive version for me... specifically this episode.
This was a great episode. The Mad Hatter was always handled well in BTAS. His obsession over Alice was creepy.
Creepy is too subtle to describe him in especially this episode...my god.
Kane, do you have a gif (Avatar) of Batman spying on Andrea/Arthur with the rain hitting him?
Sure, no problem.
Every time I gif these episodes, I get an itch of making gifs for Mask of the Phantasm. lol
thank you, fine sir.
I like his silicon soul the best, poor robot batman.
Are you talking about the song that plays while everyone is working for the food loving guy? If so then I second that.
Yes, that one. The big fat guy who is running the slave camp.
