Trivia

The computer game which is at the heart of this episode is based on Greek mythology. According to legend, King Minos had a monster, the half-man/half-bull known as the "Minotaur" and he commissioned Greece's greatest genius, Daedelus, to build a labyrinth in which to keep it. See more »

Quotes

Batman: I'll find Mockridge if I have to tear this place apart, Nygma.
The Riddler: I doubt it, I made sure the perils are quite lethal. You have eight minutes, gentlemen, then Mockridge becomes the only good corporate shark: a dead one.

A wicked battle of wits
13 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?' is an excellent title for the intro of the Riddler, another sap who turns to villainy under the thumb of corporate douchebaggery. Far less dramatic than say, Clayface or Mr. Freeze, John Glover's voice acting is what makes this character stand out; but this episode is memorable for the big Minotaur Maze. It's an extravagant trap coming from a bad guy who's all about the puzzles. The imaginative execution keeps things exciting, especially when things could easily become brainy and convoluted. Maybe it's just because I remember playing the Minotaur level on the Genesis game back in the '90s, but I do enjoy that sequence.

7/10
