Review: Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode 207: A Bat Divided!

This was so fucking great! This was, without a doubt, the best episode of Brave and the Bold that I have ever seen. I mean, holy crap it was good!

The problem with Batman: Brave and the Bold usually is the fact that the teasers are so much better than the episode proper. You get two minutes of genius, followed by twenty minutes of alrightness. But this episode, the show-proper was actually better than the teaser! The teaser was good as well, though. Booster Gold was in his classic 'stupid moron' characterisation, failing miserably to answer a bunch of the Riddler's riddles, in order to free Batman from an electrocution trap. Batman escapes on his own, he frees Booster, and they punch some guys. It was pretty good, there was some nice banter, but it certainly wasn't the best Brave and the Bold teaser I have ever seen.

Ah, but the episode proper. It starts out as basically a regular episode, with a group of kids on a field trip to a nuclear plant, a mad scientist breaks in, Batman punches him, big atomic blast. The atomic blast fuses some nerdy kid and his irritatingly jockish coach into one body. So far it was all alright, but nothing spectacular. But then it is revealed that Batman has been split into three seperate personalities by the blast. The logical and analytical one, the angry and violent one, and the stoner one. That's right, apparently Batman has a stoner side to him! He wonders around, saying he has 'the munchies', and eating nachos. He is basically Keanu Reeves in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. It is fucking hilarious. What's even funnier is the fact that the other two Batmen just hate the stoner Batman. At one point the angry Batman just explodes and shouts, "Batman does not eat Nachos!" It is very funny.

This was such a good episode.
