Rats!: Very funny review! This is one of those episodes that is really stupid, but I don't hate as much as I should. Is it just me, or do a lot of shows pull out the giant rats invade the city card? I can't remember any other instances off the top of my head, but it feels like I've seen it a hundred times.
Mind Games: I really liked this episode. One of my favorites from Batman Beyond so far. The psychic fat guy is really creepy and the fight between him and Batman is excellent.
Revenant: I think I'll take a bad episode like Rats over a really boring one like this. At least the bad episodes are fun to mock and make fun of. The Willy Watt character does nothing for me, and neither did the story in Revenant.
Babel: Pretty good. I like Shriek, and the sound gimmick is interesting. I liked seeing the civilian that Batman rescued (the guy in the crane accident) respond by hugging Batman. It's a genuine reaction that we don't see very much.
Terry's Friend Dates a Robot: This one was so dumb it was enjoyable. I knew it wasn't to be taken seriously as soon as I read the title. It's not that funny, but stupid little things like the robot blowing up the whole house makes me laugh.
I've noticed that it's hard for me to associate the Batman Beyond episodes with their titles. If you tell me a BTAS title, I can probably tell you what the episode was about, but these ones don't define the episodes very well.
Can't wait for the Batman Returns review. I saw it when it came out in 1992, when I was three years old. Of course, it really creeped me out, and the image of Penguin sinking to the bottom of the water stuck in my mind. I saw it the second time a few years ago before I got into Batman and liked it, not recognizing some of the camp and because adding a Christmas theme to anything will make me feel a little fonder for it. The last time I watched it was just a a couple of months ago, now realizing how little Batman is even in the movie and how bad it is to see Christopher Walken's character overshadow two staple Batman villains.
