I won't dispute for a second that Batman: The Brave and the Bold is family-friendly stuff meant to appeal to the Adam West-era lovers in all of us. And while the entertainment value has varied, this episode was an absolute must-watch since the announcement of its format as an all-singing episode featuring Neil Patrick Harris as the voice of the villainous Music Meister.

Biggest complaint? I only wish it could have gone longer.

Probably one of the best half-hours of TV I've seen in months, NPH turns the camp-meter up to 11 and went a long way towards making all of those musical numbers a lot of fun. This would obviously appear to be a one-and-done deal, but with all the praise it's getting, I'm hoping they bring NPH back for a season two encore.

Also hard not to appreciate the Adam West-style dialogue from Diedrich Bader's Batman. "This concerto of crime is over!" Also gotta love the use of the Bat Auto-Tuning Amplifier, second only to the Bat Shark Repellent Spray in terms of "Most Absurd Bat Gadgets".

Catch replays this weekend if you can or see it online. A guilty pleasure blast!

I'll have to check that out. I've liked the episodes of this series I've seen. I especially love the BatB version of Aquaman, who is completely over the top, always ready for a fight and generally way better than pretty much every version of Aquaman I've ever seen.

There was even a reference to Bat Shark Repellent in one of the songs! Sung by Black Manta, of course. Awesome.

They're also going to be selling the soundtrack digitally... Or, you can buy it now!

This episode was right up there with "Once More With Feeling" in the category of awesome musical episodes of TV shows that were already awesome to begin with.
