There is nothing wrong with nostalgia, but without that factor I am guessing this episode would not rank quite so highly on many peoples Best of Batman lists. While it may not be a popular thing to say, I do find this one a tad overrated. Don't get me wrong, its a solid episode, but there are just plenty I like more. Still, there is a certain meta charm about Batman's fanaticism for his childhood hero and inspiration - maybe someday I will be a superhero and Kevin Conroy will be my sidekick.
I guess the weak point in the episode was the underwhelming Mad Bomber. I really do enjoy this episode, so I don't want to sound too negative, I just think its fonder to remember than it is to rewatch. But isn't that what nostalgia is all about?
