Storyline

Failing to destroy Batman and Robin, the Minstrel enacts "Plan High C." He shakes the building of the Gotham City Exchange, and promises to send it crumbling down if his demands are not met in one hour. Batman assumes cutting off the building's power will thwart the villain, but when that plan fails, it's up to the Dynamic Duo to track down the Minstrel before it's too late. Written by Twenty Penguins

Really good episode ...
13 January 2012 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

What I admire about this outing is how Van Johnson's character of The Minstrel seems to be outwitting Batman and how he is menacing. While the series had the nerve to give us another medieval-clothed villain within the same month (this is two weeks after the Archer episodes), this works better.

One weird touch: The episode titles don't match. Maybe this might be a case of Bat-fatigue setting in after what had been a furiously busy year. Look also for a conflict between Commissioner Gordon and Chief O'Hara, when the latter is casting aspersions on the Dynamic Duo. Oh, and the moll is pretty cool as well.

In any case, this is a solid episode and fine entry in the Second Season!
