When it wasn't being emo, the show had some good moments
i can almost stand it until the little rave dance bit, then i always change the channel.
Aw c;mon, I'm giving it an extra star just for the guy doing the really awkward twist in the background!
Sadly, I was only gonna give it two stars to start with. The series was never as cool as the opening, and the rest orf the opening wasn't as cool as that first shot of the hand throwing the hypno-eyeball at you ...
We always liked to think that was in there because this was some cranky old man animator's idea of a future society that has descended into chaotic anarchy.
THIEVES! MURDERERS! KIDS WITH THEIR LOUD MUSIC AND THIER CLUBS!!!
This was a cool cartoon
If you look closely you can see a subliminal clip of the goatse man.

Batman The Animated Series > Batman Beyond > The Batman. It's just been all downhill.
But don't forget Justice League, where Batman had a big role. That show was amazing.
i dunno. batman is the only superhero comic i ever liked, so pairing him up with superman and such just ruins everything that make batman cool.
Huh. Can't say I ever heard of the show but the opening theme was pretty O.K, I guess.
It's unfair to compare it to the 90's Batman series.
It was better than 90% of the dreck it competed with.

The fruity little dance he starts doing at -0:27 simultaneously repulsed and fascinated me. I guess it's a good thing he never did any such dancing in the actual show.

I always thought the rave dancing part had a Charlie Brown Halloween Special feel to it.
Man, the opening credits for "seven" really impacted everything.
not to mention the use of predictable plot twists in the end of movies

This was really one of the best shows on tv for most of its run. There were aspects of the opening I never could stomach though.
maybe i was just jaded, but i couldn't get past the first episode, what with the akira bike chase and the emo kid becoming the new batman. instead of this, they should have made an entire run of dark knight returns instead of this "old zorro, new zorro" shit.
Yeah, the Akira ripoff should have bothered me, but I'd become desensitized to that kind of thing.
By the time of Batman Beyond, they might as well have been ripping of the chase scene from Mask of the Phantasm.
Pretty sure Terry was gay though. In my mind, it's the only explanation as to why he was always after the cold, prissy, and unattainable girl, rather than hooking up with the cool black chick - who, in addition to being just as hot as the other lady, was also super smart, hardcore, trustworthy (she knew all his secrets), and not a cooze.
It also explains the dancing, hairstyle, and skinny-legs-with-a-strong-upper-body.
So I never viewed him as emo. Just a closet homosexual. He was a kid though. I bet he would have come to terms with it eventually.
>the emo kid becoming the new batman.
You do know that he and his brother are actually clones of Bruce Wayne, right?
Man, you guys didn't get it. Terry wasn't the new Batman. Bruce Wayne was still Batman, Terry was just a tool.
Just had it pointed out to me that this is almost entirely Darwyn Cooke- especially the opening SWIRLY HYPNO-EYE! and the dancing scene. I am totally gay for Cooke, so automatic four. Between this and Henry Rollins as a villain, I may have to rent this now.
