I never thought I'd critique a TV show, but... having a bunch of paperback quacks, a forensic consultant and a rabbi for crying out loud (author of 'Wisdom of the Batcave' - I kid you not - and the forthcoming 'Popeye; the Spinoza of Spinach') all parading their 2-bit pseudo-psycho-evaluation, while doing their best to circumvent that irksome little fact that we're talking about a friggin' 1939 comic book superhero, resurrected every so often as a movie character for nothing more than Hollywood payola (aarrgghhh!!)..
