Enter Batgirl And Other Things As Well
19 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

For the first time we see Batgirl. For the first time we hear Billy May music (not Nelson Riddle music) pumping away. Narrator William Dozier sounds like he has more energy than he did in past seasons. The show is generally faster than past seasons. What has happened? In the eyes of some, this series needed to get it's act together and increase the ratings which had dropped in season two.

Enter Batgirl, Exit Penguin is one of my favourite Batman episodes and, without question, my favourite Penguin episode of the series. Burgess Meredith seems more deadly in this episode when he talks about killing Batgirl's Dad.

We see more of Alfred this season and this episode is the start of more Alfred. Batgirl is a thrill but she does make some of the fight scenes look a little less pleasing to watch. But all in all, this is 25 minutes of great television!
