  • Not quite as tightly plotted as part one

    Not quite as tightly plotted as part one, but this is still top-notch entertainment. The rapport between Batman and Catwoman continues in this episode, making for some very amusing exchanges and interesting fight scenes. Of course, this kind of love-hate relationship has been visualised throughout DC's history, but it's surprising how adult and straight things are played here - this is certainly a show aimed at kids looking for adventure and adults who essentially fall into the "big kid" catergory. Overall, a solid piece of fun. The stuff with red claw only ever comes across as padding and a means to toss Catwoman and Batman into a perilous situation just so they can save each other and spar against one another, which is a shame. Still, it's highly complex and fun as cartoon relatonships go - here's to a return visit from the cat in the near future.
