I give this a low rate not because of the show but googles release of it. If you buy seasons 1-3 you are really buying season 0 (that includes seasons 1-3) but you won't be able to choose what season is being shown.. so you just get a big list of every episode.. This is the only show I have seen them do this with and they don't seem to care.

I truly recommend this as a faithful successor to the original Batman. Other alternate Batman's cannot begin to compare itself to the dark, grim, and quite real future that most other cartoons are afraid to tread, let alone approach. On top of that, character development is a focal point in the plot, the protagonist matures gradually, learning from his mistakes and pointing them out by admitting his faults, rather than let it slide like nothing happened.

I LOVE Terry McGinnis as the new Batman. What a brilliant concept! There comes a time when we all have to stop doing what we love, and that time has come for aging billionaire Bruce Wayne. He hangs up the cape and cowl; taking on McGinnis as his protege in a futuristic Gotham. Some classic villains appear along with some new ones in Batman Beyond.
