Anyone Up for a Batman the Animated Series Rewatch?

I'm finally caught up with Steven Universe, Gravity Falls and Adventure Time. I need something to fill the animated television slot in my viewing schedule, and I was thinking about a rewatch of Batman: The Animated Series. All of the episodes are on Amazon Prime streaming, and I'm sure that there are plenty of other places to watch them. Is there any interest in making this a group thing?
