The Joker Returns for a Second TV Go Round
16 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

BEING AMONG THE first season of BATMAN episodes, production values for this installment (and its 2nd part) were very high. The writing is very good and the "Camp" humor is well thought out; with no short cuts being used via the obvious and juvenile gags.

THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL formula of taking certain situations and manipulating them into the seriousness of the absurd is employed liberally.

IN THE CLOSING sequence, Batman & Robin face certain death by electrocution, until........................
