Batman: I was so close, Alfred, I could smell his sweat. From now on, Tony Zucco gets my undivided attention.
Alfred Pennyworth: How fortunate for Zucco, because there's a little boy up there who's just aching for some of that attention.
Batman: I'm doing this for him.
Alfred Pennyworth: I'm sure revenge can be deliciously sweet. However, at the moment, he needs a friend. Isn't that what you needed sir?

The birth of The Boy Wonder
26 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not hard to see why this won an Emmy. Even though the story is super familiar, the style makes up for it. And while very similar to Robin's origin in "Dark Victory", I don't have a problem with retelling a story, if it's done well, and this episode is. Thanks to the story focusing more on Robin than Batman, the episode offers a refreshing change of focus for the series. I know it makes sense that they would focus more on Robin (I mean it IS his origin story), but they could've easily made it more about Batman, and they didn't. And beings this is only the third appearance by Robin in the series, it's about time he got a proper origin story.
