Screen Grabs


ALFRED: I do hope you'll be seeing Ms. Selina now that she's free to prowl again.
BRUCE: I don't think so.
ALFRED: But I thought you had grown quite fond of her. I assumed the feeling was mutual.
BRUCE: Almost. She's in love with Batman.
ALFRED: Oh dear. These modern relationships can be so complicated.
BATMAN: You were supposed to stay out of trouble.
SELINA: Don't tell me, you're my own private probation officer? How often would you like me to check in.
BATMAN: Catwoman! It's me!
BATMAN: You're hot.
CATWOMAN: Now you notice.
CATWOMAN: Are you getting soft on criminals, or just on me?
BATMAN: I think the fever is making you delusional.
CATWOMAN: Ever the escape artist, I see.
MILO: I can't imagine he could elude that beast.
DAGGETT: You'd better make sure of that, my friend, because if he does get away I'd suggest you keep on driving. As far away from Gotham as this truck can take you.

Review: This episode was sort of slow and not too interesting. Again, it dealt with Catwoman being more of a hero than a villain which should not be happening yet, if ever, on this series. Also, the idea behind the virus being loose in Gotham was sort of a step too far to insane villainy for Rolland Daggett.

The animation wasn't to great either. It was one of those 'huge bulky characters' shows. The rabid dog at the end was well done, but that was about it.

The only really good moment was when Batman was under the ice and then burst his hand through to grab Daggett's thug. This was really well done on a certain Batman level.
