I had heard that the show had been cancelled, but I didn't realize that this was actually the final episode. I never would have guessed they would end it on such a...um...obvious note. That said, it was a great episode, and actually hit on exactly what the show meant to me--something that started off as kind of a joke, but turned into a well respected show with lots of positive elements. Truly a "love letter to Silver Age comics", as Batmite put it. The sheer number of showbiz gags thrown into this episode was a blast, especially the Scrappy Doo variant and the re-casting of Ted McGinley (ie, the show killer) as Aquaman. But my favorite continuing joke was how people hate to see things thrown in just because the toy companies said so...I've always hated how most of the Batman figures at the toy store have never even shown up in a show or comic. Utlimately The Brave and the Bold wound up being exactly what I wanted out of a Batman show...fun, self referencially campy, yet still respectful of the character. I'll miss it.
