      This episode is unique in a lot of ways. A lot of the episodes have Batman team up with a different DC superhero. This one has him team up with Robin. Also, the cold opens usually act as their own mini-episode. While that’s the case here, it also acts as a prologue to set up the story of the episode.

      If you’re a fan of the 60’s Batman show, you are going to love the intro. There are nods galore, the Shakespeare head, Robin’s


      unusual “holy” expressions, you even see Bruce and Dick out of costume, ok they’re in shadow, but still.

      This episode features Crazy Quilt as the villain. As it turns out, he is a real character and while some factors are tweaked to make him more of a personal enemy to Robin, they got his backstory right.

      It was quite amusing to see Robin’s reactions to Batman’s oblivious attitude. You could see why Robin got annoyed, but at the same time you can’t help but laugh. Having Robin announce ...


      • Crazy Quilt’s intention, only for Batman to announce it as if he just thought of it is hilarious.

        The running bit with the sidecar was a perfect manifestation of Robin’s frustration. It acted as a metaphor, a throwback to the old show, and proof that even Batman can ignore the moral of the story. It was a perfect ending though, I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

        You would think that a villain with a name like Crazy Quilt would be the epitome of lame, however,

        he is actually pretty effective here. He walks that fine balance between legitimate menace and cornball, spewing all sorts of art related puns. Still, he’s not a villain one should take lightly.

        While it’s not the apex of what this show has to offer. It is a solid one. The characters are all pretty well developed, you get a few throwbacks to the old show and there is a fine dose of humor thrown in for good measure. All in all, it was a half hour well spent.
