  • Dull, Terminator rip-off.

    I just didn't feel this episode.
    I guessed the plot from early on and honestly, I've come to expect more from this show. The whole episode was a let down and the fact it was a two parter really annoys me. There have been so many other episodes that could have used a double episode format rather then just the one twenty minute.
    I also found the animation for the walking suit case unfinished.
    The plotting was loose and slightly confusing and not in a good way.
    it just doesn't need the glorification of a parter let alone a stand alone one.

    Disappointing in a lot of ways.
  • A supercomputer obsessed with human error tries to take over all of humanity. Underappreaciated episode way... Heart of Steel was erie, mysterious, and kept me guessing.

    You need to watch this episode. Nothing compares. Heart of Steel was one of the best B:TAS episodes. The shading was excellent along with the plot. This episode is the creme de la creme of Batman and only had one follow up episode after part two. HARDAC could've returned later in TNBA, but they passed that opporitunity up. Overall, Heart of Steel had it going on. In my eyes, this episode topped Heart of Ice.
