Bargain Basement Batman, 23 November 2016
Author: Mr-Fusion from United States

I'd heard about 'Critters' over the years, but hadn't gotten around to actually bearing witness until today.

Hoo boy.

It's not necessarily that it's bad, but definitely out of place. Giant mutant livestock; it's more at home with "Superman The Animate Series", especially when Batman takes to the skies to fight off . . . what were those, pterodactyls? A silly storyline is doable, but this just doesn't fit with the show's tone, even with the revamp.

Not terrible, but certainly forgettable.
