  • Fatal editing flaw

    6.0
    This episode had tremendous plot potential with the brainwashing of Alfred angle, but fell flat. A key reason was the denouement. Not only was it clumsily written but clumsily edited. There is no scene which shows how Penguin knew of the Duo's escape from his vacuum trap!
  • Another cute Penguin story but lacking.

    7.5
    As usual with a two parter, the Dynamic Duo is in a death trap. In this case the air is being sucked out of the room they are trapped in. They escape off screen and in a very clumsy manner thanks to their utility belts.

    Then comes a odd sequence where the Commissioner is playing phone tag between Batman and Bruce Wayne.

    Luckily we had a very cute Moll in Finella and she actually felt remorse over helping Penguin was also nice.

    The pacing was a bit off and the actors seem like they hadn't had time to really memorize their lines well. Especially Adam West..he just seemed too off beat. Even though he usually get away with it by having that deep thinking look that Batman is suppose to have.moreless
