Batman: The Brave and the Bold
1x25 Mayhem of the Music Meister!
2x11 Chill of the Night!

I watched the first eight episodes of this bright-n-cheerful animated series back in August/September 2012, after which I gave up on it for not being particularly good. However, I recently discovered it's all on Amazon Prime Instant Video, so I decided to watch the first of these episodes, which got a lot of coverage on its premiere back in 2009 for being a musical guest starring Neil Patrick Harris. And it was actually really good fun.

"Maybe the series deserves a second shot?", I thought. Googling to find the best episodes, it seems to actually have a lot of fans, although consensus on which episodes are the best only extends to a handful. The second of the ones I watched seems to be one of only two that gains universal acclaim -- and as the other is the series finale, I thought I might leave it for a bit. Aside from its tacky pre-titles, Chill of the Night is excellent -- much more like a Batman: The Animated Series episode than a Brave and the Bold one, which is no bad thing.

So looks like I may give some more of this a go after all.
