  • Great introdction to Ragdoll

    -"It's feline, so It's mine". Such a Catwoman quote.

    -A great introduction to Ragdoll, one of my all-time favorites characters of the series.

    -Ragdoll and Catwoman? That's like water and oil, but I don't know how, they've mixed. The scene at the Wayne Manor with Ragdoll breaking a box, and the final fight on the giant clock, with Ragdoll actually enjoying to get crushed..haha very funny. It was a little bit silly that when Catwoman have "The Cats Eyes" she don't runaway, but stay with Batman and give them to him...again, silly. But still an excellent episode and it's on my Top Ten.moreless
  • A well done episode with the return of catwoman and with the Introduction of Ragdoll

    A well done episode with the return of catwoman and with the Introduction of Ragdoll. Ragdoll, even though on a Batman series for the first time, was very impressive in my eyes. Being alble to bend up into all of these crazy shapes was good and very original. The only thing bad about ragdoll is that they left out his origin, which I feel could've made this episode better. Catwoman's return is good and she's found another rival, besides batman, in ragdoll being able to perform all of these moves that catwoman thought was impossible. Very good thing to do if catwoman and ragdoll are in another episode together.moreless
  • One of the best episodes from the second season.

    I liked many parts of this episode. Catwoman got a rival in Ragdoll, who i think is a good villain. One of the best parts in this episode was the one in the clocktower, in which an jewel chase and a fight ocurred. The relationship between the bat and the cat also continued to evolve.
  • One of the best episodes of this series so far.

    The thing that made this episode appealing to me was the building of the relationship between Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, both in and out of costume. Catwoman has always been one of the most interesting Batman villains (although not always villainous), and this episode shows that more than any of her previous appearances in this show. Although I am unfamiliar with the Ragdoll character, he was written well enough to make a fitting adversary for both Catwoman and Batman. For a series that has just been 'okay' for me, I thought this episode stood out as one of the best so far.moreless
  • Better than The Cat, the Bat and the very ugly as far as villains facing off goes but in some parts the episode was tiresome and overly silly.

    In this episode Ragdoll is introduced and puts a crimp on Catwoman's string of cat robberies. What ensues is a unspoken competition to beat each other to a given item. Some of the highlights of this episode are Selena and Bruce at the mansion who both want to fight Ragdoll but cannot because they are not in costume and do not wish to reveal their identities and also at the fundraiser where we see Selena and Ragdoll pick out their next target. From Ragdoll's sudden interest in Wayne's collection, it may imply he knows who Catwoman is or just figured Selena as a woman (not as Catwoman) was looking for the same as he.

    The fight scenes are dull in that it seems every villain knows some sort of martial arts that they use lavishly. Not only that but Ragdoll can bend in all sorts of positions giving him leverage in battle. He would be the only plausible character I can see to have great martial arts due to his flexibility. The same for Catwoman but more tending towards her gymnastic capabilities.

    All in all, the episode is worth watching once or twice to compare the similarties between the Gotham of the comics and of this show. As an original and unique entry into the Batman universe it fails to deliver.moreless
