A review of BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD
’s latest episode, “Long Arm of the Law!” for your reading pleasure…
This one certainly wasn’t a clunker by no means, but one’s like, dislike, or indifference for this particular episode will most definitely depend on one’s taste in Batman -- as this case usually is with this show.
Truth be told, “Long Arm of the Law!” is Plastic Man’s show and Batman’s the guest star. That could be tremendously irritating for the Batman fan if the episode as a whole sucked. But it doesn’t -- so it’s a moot point. Yet again, the good folks behind B:TBATB have delivered a show so damn good, that the goofiness and “Guest Staring Batman” factor doesn’t matter.
If you’re a Plastic Man fan, you’ll certainly dig this one. Plus, Plas’ main squeeze -- Ramona -- is smoking-hot! Well, as “hot” as an animated character can be I guess. (I think she kicks Jessica Rabbit’s ass, but that’s just me.)
All in all, another well-written, DCU/Batman-respectful, funny, and entertaining installment of what is rapidly becoming a classic addition to “Batman History.”
