I have a theory that the main reason we get so many fan efforts to resurrect DC shows is that most of them tend to be left with open or unsatisfying final episodes. For a show to feel complete, there has to be an effort on behalf of the creators to bring it to a real conclusion.
With that in mind, I’d argue that no DC show has accomplished this better than Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which embraced its own impending cancelation with the sort of oddball humor and obscure pulls fans had come to love over its course. I’d say it’s one of the most inventive finales of any TV show, let alone a DC property, as the characters themselves fight in vain against a dying light.
“Our job isn’t to save the show,” Batman says, facing the very end. “It’s to save the day.”
But what are your favorite finales?
