You've gotta love the misdirection on 'Off Balance'. Al Ghul, one of the comics' more surreal villains is kept under wraps until the very end. And even then, he's not referred to by name. He just stands back and lets the decoys put Batman through his paces; which is still no letdown. Vertigo (in total Bond villain mode) and his Society of Shadows goons lend this episode its espionage flavor, and Talia (well played by Helen Slater) spices thing right up. It's not my favorite company doing the animation, but it still fits the story being told.
Rewatching this as an adult, I'm really looking forward to that Demon Head two-parter.
