    I don't find it that annoying that WB is releasing it in these small volumes, I liked this DVD. It's worth a rent. It's nice to see these episodes in that high quality. I went through the trailers, and saw one for The Zeta Project. The trailer for it is good, but the show's animation is so bad that when it is put in this high quality and shown off after watching a show with great animation, it looks terrible, but i don't remember having that much of this feeling when I watched Zeta Project before. Just the way they move their mouthes is just so annoying to look at.

    I do. I understood the small volumes back when vhs was still being released, since vhs couldn't hold nearly as much as dvds can. But vhs aren't being released anymore. So there's no reason for the small volumes.

    And it really isn't even a very good arguement that they make more money with the small volumes. Because I'll argue that they'll have a lot more sales with the season sets at around $20 compared to the number of people who are willing to pay the $10 for the smaller volumes.

    This is a kids show, if a little kid who loves this show saw this dvd in a store he/she would automatically ask his/her mom/dad to buy it for them, that his how WB would make more money off of these. If they keep releasing these in small volumes in order (instead of skipping to the next season for volume 2), then I will buy this one and all the future ones, even if they have the big box season sets in the future. For now I am renting this one, that is why there is nothing wrong with this release because renting it doesn't hurt and you know that they will release big box sets in the future so this isn't the only type of release for this show and you have to remember, you don't need to buy these. I like this release cause were getting the episodes on DVD earlier rather than have to wait for Season 1 to end and then wait longer for it to be all on dvd. Plus, WB is making more money off of these which is good because then they can make more awesome cartoons and the creators of Batman The Brave And The Bold and the rest of the people who worked to make it happen get rewarded for their success.

    I just picked this DVD up and it is my first exposure to Batman: The Brave and the Bold and I must say :WOW! And the animation in BTBATB is a definite improvement over the animation in The Batman series.

    Really the only Batman series that beat this series in terms of animation are (and I'm talking about series that are just about Batman, not series that feature future versions of the character or team ups of the character with other characters, aside from Robin): The New Adventures of Batman (1977) & Batman The Animated Series (1992).

    But the widescreen transfer looks really nice, although I wish the soundtrack had been mixed into 5.1 surround sound, but I guess the Dolby Digital 2.0 surround soundtrack presents the show as it appeared on TV.

    Anyway, nice show Warner Brothers.
