I was genuinly pleased with this episode, or at least the last few minutes that I saw. I have to give the writers points for turning Ethan into Clayface. Like others had mentioned, I haven't watched the series since early on, and I didn't really have an emotional attachment to the characters. That being said, I had figured that Ethan would become Batman's police buddy, some kind of stand in for Commisioner Gordon. That he became, after an entire season, a (possible) villain was a complete surprise. In the small part that I saw, I was pleased to see that there were no crappy puns, and that the shower didn't melt clayface.
Clayface had the most tragic of origins, in my opinion, and it's nice to see that that emotional element was present in this version.
I hope this show stays at this level of quality. It seems as though it's starting to live up to the potential shown by the brief flashback scenes of Young Bruce mourning. At the very least, I'll watch next week.
Now if they can just make the Batwave a little more subtle...
I'm tired. Tired like the sea.
I remember a time on the Toonami Revolution boards when massive, bandwith-eating, spoiler-ridden sig pics roamed with impunity.
