BATMAN: YEAR ONE - 3/10
With such an abysmal, badly read slew of superfluous voiceover narration, it completely destroyed anything that might have been good about this. It's not the fault of the story that we have seen Batman's origins god-knows-how-many times in cartoons and movies, but at least it could have been a more interesting watch.
I can't get over how retarded-bad the VO is. I don't think I've EVER been so bothered by it before; and I naturally dislike voiceovers in almost anything.
This show made me angry.
BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, PT.1 - 7/10
Interesting. Pretty good, and I like the attempt at artsy-fartsy elements. It follows the graphic novel pretty well, which also means that the faults I had with that (such as unending news reports) are evident here. But so, too, are the good things. The good far outweighs the bad, and I recommend it.
