It's not every day that Arleen Sorkin gets to outshine Mark Hamill, but 'Harlequinade' is that rare opportunity. Desperate to disarm a bomb before the Joker drips it on Gotham, Batman springs Harley from Arkham to assist. The clash between the two - no-nonsense and hysterical - is an episode unto itself, but just those few minutes' worth gives Harley plenty of spotlight; and that's before the gangsters show up. Incidentally, I had to look up the voice for Boxy Bennett. Thought for sure that was Harvey Keitel - the resemblance is uncanny!
This is full of ironic humor and really mines the dysfunction between Harley and Joker for laughs. It's about time Harley got (part of) her own episode, and this is just what you'd expect.
