Trivia

While this may have been unintentional, the Jazzman's appearance and low key mannerisms may have been based off of a younger Jack Palance. In the Batman Mythos, Palance played Carl Grissom, a mob boss, in Tim Burton's "Batman" (1989). See more »

Beneath the cowl is a genuine human being
9 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

One of the things I've always loved about The Animated Series is that it never really puts Bruce Wayne in the backseat to any villain. And 'I Am the Night' is precisely that sort of character study that the show just seems to get right, revealing the flawed person inside the costume. As mean as he can be in the pursuit of justice (or to the people around him) his intentions are pure, and no one could possibly be harder on themselves than he is. Just when he's wracked with inner turmoil and self-doubt, Gotham steps in to show just how badly he's needed. Brilliant use of Commissioner Gordon to really hammer home that point, and overall a very touching episode.

9/10
