  • Who calls their kid 'Temple' anyway?

    Gotham City's Mayor Hill is the victim of recent plots and ploys, all created by Temple Fugate, who has now taken on the persona of Clock King and is determined for revenge.

    This episode was alright, moving at a good pace, giving the action and vilainous obsession the series is famous for.

    The Clock King (originally a Green Arrow villain, I think) was an interesting character. While his motive, getting revenge on someone for making him late, is a little silly, it gives the character some depth; normal people like Temple can fall into sin and have a dark side. He is entertaining at times, with his obsessions during his pre-villain days and some of his fight scenes, but at other times, he succumbs to cliches; he gets illuminated by lightning, makes 'threatening' one-liners and laughs maniacally.

    This was a decent episode, worth watching if you're bored...
