The Brave and the Bold trailer suggests a simple but dynamic design, one that might be entertaining if the stories are right. If they can match the current Brave and the Bold comics in tone (multi-episode arcs would be nice), it could be enjoyable.

Of course, there's always the chance that their actual target audience might like it more than us older Bat-fans. I'm willing to accept that too.
