  • In the first episode of The Batman, Batman must stop Joker from unleashing his newest evil scheme.

    This episode was a great first episode of the show. The Joker's scheme wasn't that original, but that wasn't much of a problem. This was a classic Batman vs. Joker plot. It had lots of great action scenes, too. It also had great animation, which is the one thing I like about The Batman better than Batman: the Animated Series. This episode gave me a whole new look on Batman. It had a cool new contemporary style. I really loved this episode and I wish that the most recent three seasons would be more like the first few episodes. This episode was near perfect.
