Trivia

Sean Catherine Derek and Laren Bright created the original story for the show. Sean Catherine Derek and Laren Bright wrote the original script based on their story. But BS&P didn't approve the script. Director Altieri recalled the script was much more complex when he received it: "We cut out flashbacks to Montoya's youth when she was called a liar. And flashbacks to Bullock's youth when he was playing high-school football when his dad yells at him because he was using teamwork: 'Don't be a team player, be a star. Being a team player is for losers. Go out for Number One, Pal." Many of the Scenes were taken out. Most of these informations can be seen in Animato Magazine Issue # 26 and #27. See more »

Quotes

Investigator Hackle: [Hearing Wilk's side of the story] What did he say?
Officer Wilkes: I couldn't hear. But the guy looked plenty scared and blurted out "Doc" something.
Investigator Hackle: Doc who?
Officer Wilkes: I don't know. He just said "Doc".
Commissioner James Gordon: We're interrogating the suspect now, but it doesn't look like he'll crack.
Investigator Hackle: Well I think the rookie's holding something back!
Officer Renée Montoya: Take it easy! He told you everything he knows!
Investigator Hackle: How touching. I hope you're as good at defending yourself since the detective here is calling you a liar!

P.O.V - Spectrum's Brilliance
30 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sean Catherine Derek and Laren Bright created the original story for P.O.V. Sean Catherine Derek and Laren Bright wrote the script based on their original story.

Original Story of P.O.V was very strong in structure. But BS&P didn't approve the story. This (below) was published in Animato Magazine around 1993. In Original Story, We cut out flashbacks to Montoya's youth when she was called a liar. And flashbacks to Bullock's youth when he was playing high-school football when his dad yells at him because he was using teamwork: 'Don't be a team player, be a star. Being a team player is for losers. Go out for Number One, Pal." There were many other interesting ideas in the original story. Sadly, BS&P didn't approve it. So Mitch Brian created another story to please BS&P. Its a lot different from Original Story. His story is what we see in the episode. Sean Catherine Derek and Laren Bright ended up writing the teleplay based on Mitch Brian's story.

But there are lots of strong points. Spectrum Animation Studio in Japan did the animation for this episode. I think Spectrum was best overseas animation studio for Batman TAS. If we look at episodes animated by Spectrum, then we will see how beautiful it is. In P.O.V, we see brilliant facial expressions of the characters, great action scenes, and many other things. Spectrum Animation Studio did the animation for episodes "Heart of Ice", "Vendetta", Robin's Reckoning Part 1, Its Never too Late, and On Leather Wings.

Alan Burnett, Eric Radomski, and Bruce Timm should have send more episodes to Spectrum. They only sent 6 episodes to Spectrum. But Spectrum did Layout services for few other episodes. But they didn't do the animation.

Producers of Batman should have done like Producer Davis Doi did with SWAT Kats. Majority of SWAT Kats Episodes were sent to Studio Mook in Japan for Animation. So the animation turned out to be great.

Batman Animated Series had great episodes. But many of the episodes became weak, because of the weak animation by Studios like Akom and Jade. But Producers made a great decision with this episode. Although the story is not great, still Animation by Spectrum makes this episode great.
