Best Set Design On Any Batman Two-Parter
20 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

My god they spent big on the sets in season one: this two-parter just jumps from one pleasing set to another! A great looking two-parter that resembles a motion picture.

But it takes more than sets to make a show. It is nice to see The Riddler again (last seen in the pilot) but this two-parter is damaged by too much talking from a boring King and too much of Batman jumping back to the batcave every few minutes. Adding to this, we have a couple of "comedy" moments that fail to hit the mark.

But I guess the whole thing is worthwhile just to see The Riddler kiss that girl in the early stages of part one?

Part two contains another memorable moment when a fake Batman climbs into Gordon's office and encounters Bruce Wayne. This moment was made fun of on YouTube when some net comics dubbed over the scene with crazy X-Rated gay dialogue.

Despite some bumpy elements, it is hard to dis-like this two-parter.
