  • Smart and clever episode packed with the same mediocre storyline.

    Battle of the wits, my favourite! I'll admit that this episode did make me stop and think about some of the riddles that Riddler provided to Batman and Yin, and although it gave you almost no time to think them through just because of the nature of the episodes' structure, they were still fun to think through. You would come out with an "ahhhhh" moment after every one, unless you've already heard them before. However storyline was, mediocre like always. The plan was to lure Batman away from his designated target, but that all became redundant anyways. Though it's pretty awesome how the episode shows how smart Batman is, the part where he uses Riddler's own weapon against him was pretty clever.moreless
  • Awesome!!!!

    Superb! Riddler making Yin go all around Gotham answering riddles that could get her seriously hurt (not to mention a whole bunch of people) was soo exciting! I learnt so many new riddles plus the cheat of a riddle, Riddler made about the polar bear. COOL!! When Riddler forced Batman to tell him about himself (well, cool if you get that kind of scared and excited feeling wether they will get out of it alright or not and also if Riddler might actually find out the identity of the batman) I hope they make more episodes like it! I really liked that feeling.

  • The Riddler, a deranged evil-genius, sends Batman and Yin on a puzzling crusade across Gotham.

    What the hell is up with the Riddler? Firstly, the producers have chosen the awfully mis-cast Robert Englund, as the Riddler, and secondly his hideous appearance in this new series.

    Anyway, we are shown a lot of character development in this episode as Batman is nearly unmasked and Yin's partnership with the Dark Knight is almost exposed by the ghastly villain.

    This episode is worth a watch, even if the villain makes you wonder what the writers were thinking.moreless
