    There's only a easter egg of Michael but that's it. For me I love it for what it was (also the soundtrack is amazing) and I also enjoyed the idea they wanted to do which was having each Halloween film tell a different story...sadly that didn't panned out. So you may not like it but just think of it as another horror film and you'll be fine. And also..It's got Tom freakin Atkins.



    Now back on topic...

    Amazing sword fight that was more cinematic than the Ra's and Batman monorail fight in BB, imho. The old school swashbuckling score added to the excitement as well. Outstanding two-part episode overall.

    Agreed about Batman's reaction. And Rhino being afraid of Scarface was also hilarious. I love the way Batman takes on Rhino like he's another common thug despite Rhino being 7 feet tall and probably about 300 or so pounds. I also liked the way Batman outsmarted Scarface with his own ventriloquism. Batman is a man with many talents.

    I always thought Tom Atkins would've made a great Gordon back in the day.

    I love that end scene in Arkham when Zeus was equating Joker, Dent, and Ivy to Greek gods lol.

    Loved the heck out of that episode. Maxie Zeus is always a riot.

    Eh, not a fan of Maxie Zeus, that episode was pretty forgettable. The ending was funny though.

    I wish Selina was blond in films or other media. I loved her look in BTAS.

    Michelle was the exception for me. I guess I didn't mind it that much in B:TAS but Selina will always have dark hair when I think of her. I kind of wish they didn't copy Burton with that.

    They didn't have a choice. WB forced Timm to use the Burton designs for Penguin and Catwoman to help promote Returns.

    Yet when Timm had the chance to break away from those designs for TNBA he strangely made Catwoman look even more like the Burton version. Minus the stitching.

    I was talking about blonde Selina Kyle. That was distinctly Batman Returns. Catwoman having a skin tight black costume was not. She's had that before. He changed Selina to a brunette, and Penguin to classic looking Penguin.

    Oh I'm aware of that... I'm just saying TNBA Catwoman reminds me very much of Burton's version. The style, the pale white skin, etc.

    She was blonde at one point in the comics as well... but you're right, Blonde Catwoman was pretty much exclusive to Batman Returns and the mandated B:TAS version.

    I really like Blonde Selina.

    Not that big of a deal to me. Same with Eckhart being a blond Harvey or Craig being a blond Bond.

    I like blonde Selina too. Michelle will remain the greatest Catwoman for a long time. Hathaway didn't even close to her performance imo. Michelle Pfeiffer defines Catwoman for me. It's a shame that she wasn't a bigger name after Batman Returns.

    Does anyone have that awesome B:TAS book? it's bigger than normal books, soft cover and almost exclusively pictures. It's got a bunch of conceptual designs for characters in BTAS and gives a lot of insight on the series
