More Batman Beyond

"I've been waiting for more Batman Beyond on DVD ever since they released the original movie disc years ago. Finally, WB is giving us more - not in season sets however, but in transfers of its old VHS tapes.This disc contains two of the old VHS compilation tapes, "Tech Wars" and "Disappearing Inque", for a total of six episodes. The six episodes are: Heroes, Lost Soul, Splicers, Black Out, Disappearing Inque, and Shriek. While Heroes is a bit of a dud, the other five episodes are all great entertainment.So is this disc worth a purchase? Well, it contains 6 episodes - 2 more than most of what WB's other animated Batman discs offer. It's also better than the other Batman Beyond compilation DVD recently released (School Dayz/Spellbound) which rehashes three episodes from the "Batman Beyond: The Movie" disc. HOWEVER, it appears that WB is dumping these compilation discs on us NOW to get all its VHS properties on DVD before starting on season sets. A box set of BTAS has been confirmed. Batman Beyond can't be too far behind, though it might still be a few years. Batman Beyond's a great series, and 6 episodes is worth the price of the disc. If you can't wait for the box sets, then this disc has enough value to be worth a purchase."
Should be five but...

"Man, I have to say that as a grown-up, I really liked this show. I felt alot of the episodes, especially the earlier ones were targeted towards the older crowd. If you knew your Batman mythos than there were hidden gems in each episode. So if I'm rambling about how much I liked this show than why did I give it 4 instead of 5 stars? Because there are only a few episodes. Where is the Season 1 box sets that we crave? Yes I bought this disk but I would prefer to by the season. Otherwise, if you need your Batman Beyond fix, buy the disk."
Worthwhile for the price!

"I gave this DVD 5 stars, although there's nary an extra or special feature to be found. It was a pleasant surprise to find 6 episodes on the disc, when I had a notion there was only four. Even without any features, this is a good buy for a Batman Beyond fan."
