    I enjoy this episode. We get to see a different side of Alfred and Maggie and there are some humorous bits with them at the health spa relaxing. Poison Ivy is kinda dull and droll in this episode and it just comes down the her being a simple Eco-terrorist. Pretty basic and not too exciting.
  • An okay episode.

    I remembered that I had seen this episode when I was a child,that was back in the early 90's.There's nothing really special about this episode,it's not great but it's not terrible either.One good thing about this episode was that we get to know more about Alfred and his tendencies,but this episode is pretty dull at times.Poison Ivy doesn't seem very villenous in this episode,she just really cares a lot about mother nature.This is one of those episodes that this sticks to the plot,you get your problem and then get your solution that's pretty much it.So again nothing really special.If you missed this episode it wouldn't be the end of the world.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Alfred pours a glass of the Demetrite while in the batcave, the liquid is obviously a dark green. However, as he lifts the glass to drink from it, the liquid momentarily disappears. It is back to dark green in the next camera angle.

    • When Bruce combined Poison Ivy's chemical with human blood in a test tube, a violent chemical reaction resulted creating an rapidly growing vine and destroying the test tube.

      This is obviously exaggerated for dramatic effect as Alfred and others consumed the same chemical and had no such reaction in their stomachs as the chemical entered their bloodstreams.

    • The clothing, jewelry, and eyeglasses worn by Ivy's 'grove' have begun to turn to wood. None of those things would have turned to wood, since they are not made of human flesh, and therefore would not react to Ivy's enzyme.

    • The names of enzymes predominantly (if not always) end with the suffix '-ase'. Naming an enzyme 'demetrite', rather than 'demitrase' makes your story that much more suspect, especially to people who are running chemical companies.
