    Well, I don't mind the team up, but this episode just reminded me of something my brother has told me over the years. Also a Bat-fan, he's pointed out how Batman, a character intended and (as he feels) at his best when dealing with realistic, basic criminals, has increasingly come up against the kind of situation warrented for "superheroes"; i.e. guys with powers. We have a good example right here.



    I can't disagree with him, honestly. Seriously, look at the past season, and when was the last time he dealt with anything remotely down to earth? Probably not since he took in the little orphan acrobat. I know there's a certain importance for the fans to have Batman, a normal human, be able to measure up to guys like Superman and Green Lantern; people with serious power on their side, but I think that, comics and this show, have gone slightly overboard with it.



    Another thing I didn't much care for was the ending. A treasury becomes a water park? Eh. A bit too sugary for my tastes. I think I would've prefered Bruce making a crack that he and Dick had to fly somewhere, to the sidekick's chagrin. Still corny, but there would've been context.moreless
