This collection on two DVDs features my favorite episode of the series so far - "Mayhem of the Music Meister!" The Music Meister (Neil Patrick Harris), mad conductor of crime, harnesses the power of song to mesmerize heroes, villains, and ordinary people into stealing things for him. The whole episode is done as a musical from beginning to end, with all the main characters - Batman, Green Arrow (James Arnold Taylor), Aquaman (John DiMaggio), and Black Canary (Grey DeLisle) - fighting crime through song. It has to be one of the craziest, yet most fun episodes of any Batman cartoon I've seen anywhere.
Also included are great episodes where Aquaman helps Batman settle disputes on a different planet ("Mystery in Space!"), where Batman goes back in time to help Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson solve a supernatural crime ("Trials of the Demon!"), and much much more. Though I initially was put off by the humorous take on Batman, I came to realize that the writers and animators were honoring the spirit of Batman and increasing his audience at the same time by making the whole DC Universe more fun to watch.
Beyond the episodes themselves, there are no extras on the two DVDs included in the package, but that shouldn't stop you from enjoying the campy humor. I've enjoyed trying to figure out who some of the lesser known characters are like Plastic Man, Wildcat, the Outsiders, and more. With season 3 of Batman: The Brave and the Bold kicking off soon, don't you want to catch up on what happened with season 2?
