Pretty Wild, Fun Episode, But You Can Solve It
8 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Josiah Wormwood" and "Baron Warclaw Jozek" are two villains collaborating to stop Batman in this episode, which was an interesting one. The only problem, I found, was that there is a big, big twist with five minutes to go and I figured it out right away. If I can do that, so can you. I'm disappointed usually if the big surprise is what I immediately think it is, and I assume you would be, too.

Nonetheless, it is a fun episode with a lot of things going on, from old-fashioned tie-a- woman-to-the-train tracks type villainy to special gadgets and rhymes of poetry that Wormwood uses to trap Batman.

Bud Cort voices this villain (who has most of the scenes) and sounds like a cross between Roddy McDowell and a little bit of Truman Capote. However, when it comes to a dramatic physical confrontation, Wormwood turns out to be one, strong dude.
