Episode #007 - P.O.V.
Original Airdate - September 18th, 1992
When Bullock botches a sting operation, he Montoya and rookie Wilkes,
are questioned by Internal Affairs. Bullock's face saving story is so at
odds with the other testimonies that the I.A. believes no one and
suspends them all. Eager to clear her name, Montoya follows up on some
clues which lead her to the location of the gangsters they were after
during the sting.

Review: An excellent episode
portraying what other people think of the Batman, in this case, a rookie
cop, Officer Montoya, and Detective Bullock. The rookie's story is
especially good since it depicts Batman as some sort of meta-human even
though the viewer knows what is really occurring.
Another 'no villain' episode that proves the villains don't run the
show. The only hope of a surprise villain was in the mystery "Boss" who
stuck to the shadows. It would have been interesting for him to be
revealed as a long lost Bat-villain, but it was never bridged off of.
Not much of a complaint though since the episode is still enjoyable.
If you enjoyed "It's Never Too Late" or "Robin's Reckoning" you should
definitely enjoy this episode!
