Crisis of Infinite Episodes - What is Reality?

One of the things that makes BTAS timeless was the retro modern approach to technology. Batman lives in a world with super computers and black and white monitors. Clearly the technology of the world developed differently from our own and that works most of the time. However, the inclusion of virtual reality which was all the rage in the 90's severely dates this episode. Nevertheless, I can roll with the idea that this is just how VR works in the world of BTAS - its based on the failed Nintendo Virtual Boy technology.

In any case, this is a pretty good episode, maybe not as good as the Riddler's debut, but great enough that I really wish Edward Nygma had been given more episodes. The riddles are once again pretty fun and not that obvious - I can only imagine it was not easy for the writers to come up with some of them. Kudos for keeping the streak of solid stories going.
