    Those were definitely some of the highlights of this ep. Eventhough the episode as a whole is very memorable including the Jazzman scenes.
    I always found Jazzman's determination to kill Gordon a little frightening especially for a family show. This guy attempted to kill Gordon twice in one ep. On the second attempt he even broke out of prison to kill Gordon. That climax at the hospital always had me on the edge as a kid.

    Notable thing about 'I am the Night' is Batman giving up being Batman because he thinks he failed Gordon. I loved that scene in the cave where he rips his mask off and throws it into the abyss.

    Exactly! It's a very powerful moment seeing my favorite superhero give up his war on crime out of anger and guilt over Gordon nearly dying. The dialogue and everything leading to that moment was very well executed. Conroy's line delivery was perfect. I've never seen Batman so depressed and in such emotional pain before in B:TAS. Definitely one of the strongest Batman character arcs on the show, imo.

    It's the only episode in the original run where somebody got shot.

    one thing i realised while rewatching this, is that despite a ton of fans saying they consider this show the definitive version of batman, there were quite a few things that batman does that don't fit the dark and dreary version it seems the same fans like. for one batman makes a lot of jokes and doesn't seem depressed at all. as bruce it seems like hes having fun with alfred a lot. if you watch this show and then watch justice league, the batman character really is portayed a lot differently

    The character does "evolve" I just always attribute the gradual change to things taking a toll as time goes by...

    hes a real dead serious prick by the time TNBA rolled around....I personally did not like the added coldness at all. I get everyone loves the Superman is an alien but very human and batman is the opposite, but Batman lost too much of his "humanity" when he became colder..the disappearance of Bruce Wayne as the series progressed didnt help matters either.

    I'm gonna make gifsets for each of the those segments either today or tomorrow. There's so many great moments in this episode.

    Oh and Pfeiffer-Pfan, I didn't know how to respond on tumblr but i'm eventually gonna buy Batman Beyond S03, I just hope the price goes down sometime soon. :oldrazz:

    'I threw a rock at him' has to be the funniest moment in the entire series. The facial expressions of the villains when the camera pans around to their reactions is what makes it.

    Love this episode. Easily one of my favorites. Timm was always wary of villain team up type episodes, saying they never worked. He never liked it in 'The strange secret of Bruce Wayne' episode. But here it totally works because it's not even a team up. It's just villains having a night off. Hanging out and playing cards and swapping stories.

    Rock-throwing aside, my personal highlights of the episode were the reveals of Batman and the cops. That was awesome.

    I love all these things about BTAS. It hit that sweet spot between dark and fun.

    I agree it's an excellent ep that I can look at repeatedly. The animation is great and the premise is very well executed. I remember being excited everytime this ep would air when I was a kid. The ending was also a nice touch. This ep. had so many great moments, imo. I find it interesting during the conclusion of Almost Got 'Im when Catwoman and Batman talked about being together without the freaks and masks someday. Lo and behold Nolan & Goyer conclude their trilogy with Bruce and Selina living together (without the masks and freaks) hapilly ever after. Kind of makes me wonder.

    Oswald put Batman through a lot of crap that season. Aside from what he put Batman through in this ep. with those poison tipped birds and that cassowary. In another ep. he shot Batman with a dose of knock out gas (leaving him unconcious for most of the ep.), then blinded him in another ep., and took control of his batmobile (just like in BR) in another ep.
