Goofs

When the Scarecrow starts the main pump, he checks his watch, which shows 10 after 4. When he again checks his watch, just as Batman arrives, it shows 20 after 3. This may be due to the hands being drawn in the wrong spots. See more »

An 8 for that crazy dream sequence!
18 October 2012 | by muraliavarmaSee all my reviews

I love all the Scarecrow episodes. This one is no exception. Especially with the start where we find out that Batman is deemed "disturbed" and put in Arkham Asylum. The story is great. The dialogues are great. But that is the case for every single episode in this series.

What truly makes this episode stand out is that brilliant dream sequence (watch it first to see how awesome it is). The visual detail behind the shape shifting, the "fear" that each character talks about and the feeling of helplessness in Batman's eyes... feels like a Grateful Dead concert.

This scene took up an entire 2 minutes of the 20 minute episode. This leaves just 18 minutes to show the flashbacks, develop the villain's plans, show Batman's actions and a gazillion other things. Most dream sequences in this series are stunning (the Two Face one is especially touching). It is extended scenes like this that make us realize the pain that Batman goes through every night of his life and develop his character into one that we truly feel for.
