If "Robin's Reckoning" hadn't dropped the ball
28 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode pretty much makes "Robin's Reckoning" from "Batman: The Animated Series" obsolete. Not since "The Dark Knight Returns" destroyed "The Dark Knight Rises" has there been a better replacement for a Batman story. This episode, isn't drawn out, it's not overly-long, it's just right. The perfect introduction for Dick Grayson, similar to "Dark Victory". I like how Robin in this series is modeled after his appearance in "Teen Titans", I think it gives the two shows a better connection. I hope I can get to "Teen Titans" after I finish "The Batman", but it won't be part of the Bat-a-thon because Batman doesn't actually show up in "Teen Titans". A great episode that does the absolute most with the time it's given, and unlike "Robin's Reckoning" doesn't bite off more than it can chew.
