Trivia

The name of the villain, women's rights activist Nora Clavicle, is a weak pun on Gloria Steinem. The clavicle (or collarbone) is adjacent to the sternum, hence the contrived wordplay. See more »

Goofs

Batgirl has held her own against multiple trained fighters, but yet she's utterly helpless when Nora Clavicle, with no training whatsoever, grabs her. See more »

Quotes

Robin: [Batman, Robin and Batgirl are tied into a Siamese human knot] Holy hamstrings!
Batman: Exactly, Robin. This is torture... at it's most bizarre and terrible.

A 1968 Version Of South Park?
25 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Women take over Gotham City.

Firstly, I should say I totally understand some viewers being a little bothered by this episode. So please don't bombard me with "not useful" votes. This adventure does seem a tiny bit out of character in the Batman series. Many women would view this as the most sexist 25 minutes of television ever. However, one thing needs to be remembered here: this is Batman.

This series does not make statements about the human condition. This is not Star Trek or The Outer Limits. It is Batman. A series that is adventure for the kids and a show that is meant to be humour/adventure for the adults. However, maybe I am wrong, if someone has proof that I am wrong (maybe Adam West has spoken up about this episode) please let me know about it and I will correct this review.

Perhaps this episode could be described as a 1968 version of South Park or The Simpsons?
