Quotes

[after the Batman impostor is revealed]
Bruce Wayne: The Mad Hatter?
The Mad Hatter: Congratulations are in order, I suppose. And you're right! This is a dream, a very special dream.
Bruce Wayne: Then you know everything about me?
The Mad Hatter: I do! But I'm only a part of your dream. The mind control apparatus I've hooked you to reveals nothing to the outside world - it's purpose is to create an ideal fantasy world for you!
Bruce Wayne: Then you're not the real Mad Hatter.

An Episode That Will Really Have You Thinking
10 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, this was a very strange episode, the most unusual one I've seen in the Batman animated series. It is a real thinking person's episode where things aren't what they seem. The villain does not appear until the last few minutes and he's behind all the strange events that Batman experiences throughout this story.

The beginning of this episode features a spectacular car chase scene that is magnificently drawn. Batman, it turns out, is lured into this warehouse, a victim of a trap....and then wakes up in his bed....and is in a world he totally is unable to understand. Is it real, or is it a dream....it's hard to tell.

There is a ton of sci-fi here, an intelligent show that will keep you puzzled, as Batman was here. When we find out what this is all about, near the end, it's pretty neat. Until then, be ready to be confused.
