Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Spider Takes a Bride

Believe it or not, I may be turning a corner on this show. The running time is still definitely too long, but I'm gaining an appreciation for a couple of aspects of the show. The series has consistently offered creative villains. Take this episode for instance, a tie wearing human spider hell bent on marriage. That's hilarious. The second thing I appreciate is that the show often throws in one extra ridiculous element to go the extra mile. No, a talking Man-Spider wasn't enough without a gun that turned people into flies... What!? That crosses the blurry line between genius and insanity. This episode gets extra points for a Batman reference when Plas took the form of a bat and said he hoped that "other guy" wasn't offended.
