  • If there's one surefire device to kill a series, it's introducing precocious children. As soon as a kid is introduced, it's time to put the show on life-support and gradually watch it waste away until it quietly dies.

    I used to enjoy this series. The opening score was edgy and kinda industrial sounding. Batman was a young guy still, but as soon as the mask went on, he was all business. I never cared much for most of the character re-boots (never, ever mess with the Joker), but I learned to keep an open mind and look past it. I simply can't now. It happened in the Brady Bunch, when Oliver arrived. It happened in Married with Children with Seven. It's happened now with Batgirl: some precocious child is introduce which spoils the whole show. The music is no longer edgy, it's forgettable. And the re-imagining of Poison Ivy is brutal. It's all downhill from here, folks.
