Goofs

Siren claims that singing the "antidote note" - three octaves above high C - would destroy her voice. However, the Siren is described as having a seven-octave range, with an upper range that only dogs can hear. Assuming her lowest note is at middle C (two octaves below high C, and about the average soprano's lower limit), the antidote note is only five octaves higher, and should be well within her ability without any damage to her voice.

Gordon Gets Out Of The Office
16 June 2018 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Commissioner Gordon is put under a spell.

In the 1980s sexy Joan Collins (The Siren) proved to be the queen of camp with her role role in the supersoap: Dynasty. I think I would have liked her to channel some of her Dynasty-camp into Batman, but she is someone else all together here. I am not saying The Siren is a poor villain but rather that she is a villain with no special talent to exchange clever dialogue with. Too bad she was not partnered up with The Joker or someone like that.

But anyway, despite some typical cheap third season sets, this adventure plays well thanks to a plot line where Commissioner Gordon gets more involved with things than usual. Great stuff.
