Hey guys. I have two sealed copies I’m selling. One is a bit banged up (the outer box is a bit crushed but the inside and the discs are perfect) The other is in great condition. Hit me up if someone wants to buy them. I posted about them in the buy/sell/trade thread.

Watching the series for the first time with the bluray, and it looks fabulous.
Only seen the first 6 episodes, but do the stories get better/more serious? The first few stories are a little too “Saturday morning cartoon” flavoured for my taste.

Very cool! I think I'll watch all of it at a casual pace, so it's smart that they end Disc 1 on a very nice uptick in quality.

This is a good list. I'd add a few

-Avatar(Indiana Jones pulp adventure with the Al Ghuls)
-Catwalk(the only great Catwoman episode)
-The Clock King(a formidable, original antagonist. he reminds of what I want the Riddler to be, use logical everyday objects instead of goofy puzzles)
-Deep Freeze(Evil Walt Disney finds a great use for Freeze's immortality, also has Miyazaki references)
-Harley's Holiday(the best slapstick comedy of the series)
-Joker's Favor(Hitchcokian Wrong Man in the Wrong Place thriller, showcase for the casual pure evil of the Joker)
-Vendetta(Great noir-ish, atmospehric horror thriller)
-Beware the Creeper(Infectiously fun, looney tunes episode that upends conventions)
-Critters(controversial, widely hated, but if you understand the joke that is Joe R. Lansdale's script, maybe not a more fun episode in the series)
-Double Talk(stylish suspense noir, great follow-up to Read My Lips)
-Growing Pains(Fantastic animation, stirring voice work, an emotionally gripping story...one of the series' very best episodes)
-Joker's Millions(delightfully goofy Joker showcase)
-Mad Love(A very fine adaptation of quite possibly my single favorite Batman comic)
-Never Fear(A clever, genuinely horrifying Scarecrow episode, where he takes away fear instead of causing it)
-Over the Edge(A hallucinatory nightmare Bad Ending for Batman's pursuit of justice. Animation, music, direction, script, top class all)
-The Ultimate Thrill(A viscerally exciting trifle, starring a compelling Bruce Timm femme fetale and exciting chase sequences)

I didn't list the New Adventure episodes, but there's definitely some really good episodes there.

I really turned around on Critters after listening to the audio commentary.

Critters is great because it’s like a zany silver age story invading our modern dark sosphicated Batman world. The juaxtopsition is absolutely hilarious to me, especially the climax on the farm. Batman, straight face, runs off to grab like a truck, drives it towards the silo that’s about to launch and infect all of Gotham with giant animals, dives out at the last minute and it’s just filmed like the most dramatic thing ever.

What are the odds that there will be a massive BR set of all the DC animated stuff from this era (B:AS, S:AS, and JL)? Probably wont be any cheaper than getting all this separately, but just curious.

Blu ray just launched in Australia today. JB exclusive and it's 20 percent off for anyone in Aus who's interested. I'm amazed at how good it looks and love that they kept 4:3. The higher quality definitely highlights some of the dodgier animations in earlier episodes but it's cool seeing how the show has improved as you keep watching. Still the best Batman related media ever made imo

I got my Standard Edition today but I cannot find the digital code anywhere...I got the 2 cases. With 2 pieces of paper, one about DC Universe. And one multipage pamphlet listing the contents of the boxset. But no code... I'm gonna call Walmart but I feel like I just haven't looked in the right place lol

Damn, kinda want to continue to hold out until the standard edition goes a little lower again. Otherwise I'll just grab it next month.

Even if the limited and the standard are the same price, I will gladly pay for the standard. The art may not be as dramatic but the packaging is less cumbersome. I have a couple complete show sets that use that book style packaging and it’s so annoying.

I got my copy of the standard edition from Walmart as well and it looks like I didn't get a code either. I'll try the digital support and see if they have any solution.

UPDATE: The support team sent me a code after sending them a picture of the box with my ticket number on a piece of paper.

What’s up with Two-face showing up in Arkham Asylum for episode 24 when the last time we saw him was in the Poison Ivy episode and his face was still fine?

Speaking of which, I just finished watching the Fear of Victory episode, and the animation was really nice.

Turns out it was animated by TMS. Can't help imagine how this show would look if every episode was animated by TMS.

Ordered the Standard Edition a few days ago and got it in yesterday.

Watched a few episodes this morning and I could really tell they did some major work.
Lots of stuff looks significantly better as far them retouching. I'm really impressed so far.

Unfortunately, my set was missing the Digital Code, so I'm having to contact WB Digital Support on that.
