Did You Know?


The character of Dr Rossum voiced by William Sanderson, is approached in this episode by Batman & Robin for his knowledge and expertise in the field of robotics. Upon arrival at his office they are greeted by a number of small robotic toy "friends" as referred to by Rossum to keep him company. This is an homage to the character of J.F. Sebastian from the Ridley Scott's live action film 'Blade Runner'. In which J.F is a genetic designer, who lives a solitude life and creates toy like robots to keep him company that he refers to as his "friends" also. The character of J.F. Sebastian was played by William Sanderson himself. See more »

Average episode with an above-average villain.
25 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story follows the tragic and conflicted Mr. Freeze in his second appearance in the series. After being sprung out of Arkham, Mr. Freeze is recruited by Billionaire Grant Walker to aid him in fulfilling his life-long vision. You might say that Mr. Walker is a cross between Walt Disney and Karl Stromberg, the villain in "The Spy Who Loved Me". At first, Mr. Freeze rejects his proposal, but is soon goaded into helping Walker with his request after being offered a gift he cannot refuse.

I enjoy Mr. Freeze stories and love the character as interpreted by the series. The details surrounding his mistakes and tragedy makes you feel empathy and you find yourself pulling for him to find redemption. It gives him some nice character depth as opposed to other Batman villains who follow the traditional "bad guy" persona.

However, this episode is average at best. 22 Minutes is not enough time to adequately develop the plot and I found it to be rushed at times. There was some good, short dialogue concerning an Utopian Society vs. Free Will, and of course Mr. Freeze always carries every scene he is in. I just wish they had produced more episodes about him.
