Speaking of funny, watching the extras you'd never know Timm wasn't happy with the show (not that bonus features tend to badmouth their subjects). I was surprised to find out how much he resented the series going in a slapstick comedy direction. Some of the material is a little juvenile, sure, but in all it's a clever parody of comic books, kids shows, and the entertainment industry—a cross between Animaniacs and Timm's Batman. I can't wait to watch Season 2! Fingers crossed they'll actually release it...

By the way, excellent review, Erich.
