Crisis of Infinite Episodes - House and Garden

 And this just may be Poison Ivy's signature episode featuring its own creepy take on "cabbage patch kids." It was also nice to have Robin back. It feels like its been a while since he has been in the fray,  and though I don't care for him to be in every episode, his presence added little je ne sais quoi this time around, pardon the french.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Paging the Crime Doctor

 Not being a huge fan of the Dr. Leslie Thopkins character, I was not a huge fan of this geriatric thrill ride. That said, the fact that it was a fairly generic mob based story didn't help either. There was nothing terrible here, except for the opportunity cost associated with not getting a better episode instead.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Worry Men

This decent, if not forgettable mystery pleasantly revealed The Mad Hatter as the mastermind, armed with mind-control inducing dolls. Seeing the Hatter again is always a treat even if the use of Mayan costumed goons was a tad unconventional.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Mudslide

Between Sandman and Clayface, I've always been solid (pun intended) in the Clayface camp. Gotta love a dude that looks like a giant poop. In all seriousness though, BTAS made Clayface a legit villain, which I love. Penguin aside, its wonderful that the "core" villains were expanded beyond Joker, Riddler, and Catwoman. By the end of this series run, Clayface, Freeze, and Ra's al Ghul had been given credibility as worthy foes of the Bat.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Shadow of the Bat

 "What's next, weasel woman?" In truth, I am a sucker for Batgirl and this origin story is one of her best onscreen adventures, very much earning her a position in the Bat Family.
