His Name Is Earl
26 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Earl Cooper" is Batman's mechanic. He's the guy, we learn, who designed the famous "Batmobile." Now he fixes it when it gets banged up.

After a chase against three of the Penguins henchmen fails and the Batmobile is banged up pretty good, Batman and Robin go to Earl so that he and his daughter can fix their sleek auto. The two crime-fighters then leave on their motorcycles and will wait for Earl to call them when their auto is ready.

We learn the history of how Earl came to become the designer and mechanic for Batman/Bruce Wayne. Unfortunately, one of the Penguins guys learns about Earl, too. The Bad News Beak and his boys then go visit Earl and, under the threat of killing his daughter, have the mechanic sabotage the vehicle to kill our heroes.

This was a fast-moving episode with several interesting car chases and a lot of metal getting crunched. The only bad part is the typical movie cliché in which the bad guy can easily dispose of the good guy but doesn't do the obvious. I'll keep it vague so as not to spoil anything.

Note: I was surprised to find the voice of Earl was Paul Winfield, the narrator of the long-running "City Confidential" series on the A&E Network. He did not sound the same.
