I may have said it before, but I am just not a huge fan of the gangster episodes in this series. Not every episodes needs a Joker or (heaven forbid) a Penguin, but when you have Batman vs. The Jazzman, you can't really get to invested. Obviously Jazzman is going down, and hard. That being said, this particular episode did manage some suspense with Gordon taking one for the team.
So, in the end, I did like this better than your typical mafia thug themed adventure even if mopey Batman has the potential to wear out his welcome very quickly. Every now and then its nice to see the hero face his own limitations and rise above them. I honestly could not remember having seen this episode before, though I am awfully sure I had. This also seems to be one that had an influence on the Nolan movies, as I am sure plenty of scenes from this episode made their way into the animated version of the Dark Knight Rises trailer.
