Storyline

The Riddler leaves a clue at a Moldavian reception at the Gotham City World's Fair. Batman and Robin are summoned and are on the villain's trail. But he tricks them; the heroes think he's committing a robbery with a handgun. In reality, the gun is a cigarette lighter (the answer to one of the Riddler's riddles). Now, the villain is suing Batman, where he will be forced to reveal his true identity in court. The heroes, still convinced the Riddler is planning a major crime, travel to a discotheque. There, Batman is drugged by Molly, one of the Riddler's confederates, while Robin is kidnapped. Robin appears to be in great danger as the episode ends. Written by Bill Koenig

My Favourite Batman Show
25 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

My favourite two-part episode of Batman..from the teaser in part one to the closing scene in part two, this is a knockout that is actually better directed than the 1966 Batman motion picture!

I have read the other IMDb reviews of this episode and both posters don't mention the attention grabbing Nelson Riddle music running over this hour? Other Batman websites/books in the past have also failed to give the music the attention it deserves? Well, I am going to change all that (both here and in my other Batman episode reviews). Come on guys, when The Riddler is driving around and being chased in his car are you guys not listening to the music? Even the act one non-event scene where the Batmobile pulls up and Batman answers his Batphone with The Riddler on the other end, are you guys not listening to the cool low-key music playing over such scenes? Is it just me listening?

The cool sound effects, also used in Irwin Allen television, are also worth listening to as well.

But there are regular things to enjoys was well...such as Batman, Robin and The Riddler. About the only thing I can say against this pilot is that the episode title sucks. Something more memorable would of been better.
