Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Heart of Steel

Although HARDAC was an unlikely villain for a two-parter, this story turned out to be a real treat with a slow build up of mystery leading to an action packed finale.This  may not be one of the first episodes people think of when they think of BTAS, but its a perfect example of why the series is so well remembered.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Christmas with the Joker

Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg... It took nearly half of the series run before the second episode to enter production finally got to air. Was it worth the wait? Eh, not really, but it still tends to find its way into the family Christmas rotation.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Terror in the Sky

I know that I just said that I am getting tired of these animal transformation episodes, but this being a follow-up to On Leather Wings earns it a bit of a pass.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Moon of the Wolf

There is nothing really terrible about this, but it just comes off as a poor man's On Leather Wings. I am not sure this one deserves the poor reputation it has, though it certainly doesn't deserve to be on any Must Lists. And coming off the heels of Tyger, Tyger, I am getting pretty animaled out. Lucky for me the next episode is more Man-Bat.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Almost Got 'Em

This is one of those "classics" that really does deserve its good reputation. The unconventional device of vignettes told by villains over a poker game was a great hook with a great Croc-centric twist. Overall, the Joker tale with Catwoman was the best and I enjoyed her "almost got 'im" line quite a bit.
