If it wasn’t for Warner Bros Archive, this series wouldn’t ever see the light of day on Blu-ray. They are making these are ordered. So they are going to be available for a limited time. If you love this show, I wouldn’t make haste with getting this. The 1080p transfers are solid and really look great. The colors are sharp and the animation is well represented. Each episode also comes with a solid DTS HD-Master Audio 2.0 surround track. There are no special features included here. More still to come with “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” since there is still one more season to go! So keep an eye out mid next year since we had to wait about 10 months between the first and second seasons…but hey at least they are coming!
