The awesome (and cancelled too soon) BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD returns to Blu-ray with the Warner Archive release of “The Complete Second Season.” While the series does indeed look wonderful on Blu-ray, this release consists of nothing but season two’s 26 episodes. If you’re looking for “extras” and “special features,” there are none to be found here. If you need that stuff in your Blu-rays to purchase, this release isn’t for you. However, if you’re a fan of this series like me, you’ll definitely want to pick it up.
Season Two of B:TBATB aired some of the best episodes of the series. Stand outs included “Aquaman’s Outrageous Adventure!,” “Chill of the Night!,” “Emperor Joker!” and “The Super Batman of Planet X!” Captain Marvel, The Doom Patrol, The Metal Men, Challengers of the Unknown and many other DC characters – both classic and obscure – appear in this season’s episodes. Heck, what can beat Batman partnering-up with Detective Chimp?! And of course, Aquaman is as awesome as ever. Outrageous!

As I said, this is a must-have if you’re a fan of BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD. However, I might recommend holding off until Warner Bros. eventually releases the entire series on Blu-ray as it might come with a few of those “extras” and “special features” that I mentioned previously. On the other hand, I wouldn’t hold my breath when it comes to including those things, so you might as well get this thing now and enjoy it. - Bill "Jett" Ramey
