Welcome to the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday December 25th, 2021. I'm here to bring you recaps, news and commentary for all live-action television shows based on DC Comics. There were no new episodes this week but I do have a retro pick.
- Aired 9/13/1997
Batman Adventures - Series
Premiere "Holiday Knights" 1) Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy hypnotized
Bruce Wayne, kidnapped him, and made him pay for a holiday shopping spree. 2)
Batgirl spotted Detective Bullock and Montoya undercover as a mall Santa and an
elf staking out kid shoplifters that turned out to be Clayface. 3) Batman and
Robin headed to Gotham Square to stop the Joker from committing a mass murder
on New Year's Eve. Last Minute Reveal: Jim Gordon enjoyed his annual New
Year's cup of coffee with Batman!
This was the
premiere episode of the retooled Batman: The Animated Series that Kids
WB paired with their animated Superman. Almost all of the original voice
cast returned and the characters were given simpler, more streamlined designs. While
reactions to this series as a whole are mixed, this episode is definitely a
high point. The anthology approach allows us to get a broad view of the new Gotham
and establish that everything you loved about the previous series is intact.
for the Week: Santa Bullock - As if the idea of
Harvey Bullock in an ill-fitting Santa suit wasn't enough, seeing him get
honest with a kid after realizing he put their father in the slammer made me
bust a gut laughing.

After almost a
year of maintaining this blog after the podcast ended, it is with a heavy heart
that I have decided not to continue after this entry. Reporting on the various
DC TV universes has been one of the most fun and rewarding efforts of my
creative life. While I will never stop watching these shows, I believe it is
best to step back and focus on other endeavors. I would like to send a special
thanks to Sara Netzley, the best co-host anyone could ask for and Bill Sweeney,
for providing us with this platform. Thanks to all of the listeners and
readers. I hope to reconnect with all of you again soon!
