[on a videotaped deathbed message]
King Barlowe: Hiya, Joker. If you're watching this tape, you've probably figured out you've been had. Yeah, I left you some dough, but only ten million, which, knowing you, you've already blown. See, I always hated your guts, and this was the perfect payback. By now you're probably out of real money, the I.R.S. is after you, and you can't admit I fooled you, or you'll be the laughingstock of the underworld. The joke's on you, sucker! I got the last laugh after all!

Leave it to Dini
16 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Again, no one can write for Harley and Joker like Paul Dini. A hilarious episode with some great writing behind it. That's pretty much all I got for the episode, so I might as well get to the character designs. First, there's Penguin, who's biggest change is that he looks more human than the last series. He looks more sophisticated and doesn't have flippers. They get bonus points for getting rid of those, I always thought his hands were weird in the last show. And then there's the man himself, Joker. Out of all the complaints I hear about this show, Joker's design gets the most hate. Not the stories, not the writing, but a character's design. So beings I'm apparently one of only five people who actually love this show, I might as well say that I don't mind Joker's design. Is it different from the previous series? Yes. Is that a bad thing? No. The Joker to me has never been about his look, his sense of humor, or his voice, it's always been about how unpredictable he is. To me, the people that complain about Joker's look in this, are like the same people that thought Heath Ledger as The Joker was a stupid idea at first. Just judgemental fanboys acting like they know what's best for something they have no control over. You can complain about whatever you want, the story, the characters, etc., but if you tear a show apart because of how a character looks, you have way too much time on your hands. I might not like it as much as his other look, but I understand that his design is in the hands of the creators, so at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter what I think about it, does it?
