  • Laugh out loud funny in places

    9.0
    Memorable for Batman's self-induced hypnotic trance and the cook book death trap. Amusing.
  • A interesting villian with the Bookworm.

    8.0
    Overall a decent episode but seemed to have alot of filler time in it. The scene where Batman is trying to recall what Lydia said and ends up snapping at the Chief was one of them. Also the scene where Bookworm knocked out Aunt Harriet and Alfred seemed like filler. the book he took didn't seem to move the story along and would not have gotten Batman to a trap.

    But the Bookworm was a nice villian. Sort of reminded me more of the DCAU's Riddler. Clever with fits of anger. The henchmen were forgettable but not the Bookworm's moll. Very pretty lady.moreless
