    Note: i can't be a hundred percent SURE it was Toyman, i did NOT actually see the commercial/promo... someone else mentioned that they saw the new promo and that Toy man was in it. i, however, did not see this promo, so i was hoping someone could confirm it here.

    I haven't seen the promo, but I can tell you the character in question is NOT the Toyman, but is a retooled version of an obscure Batman foe named GEARHEAD. He's a character who appeared a few times in the late '90s, but has, like Cluemaster, been given a brand new take for this series. He was actually announced during the Comic-Con, in the Q&A session.

    The way I take it, Gordon chewing out Rojas would have been redundant, because Gordon is so damn pimp that his simple prescence proclaimed Rojas to be a butthole in deep, unspoken ways.

    Woo, now this episode was fun! In terms of episode appearances, Riddler has been in more interesting episodes than Clayface. But then again, this is only his second appearance.

    I really like the idea behind the episode, and Gordon was introduced perfectly. I mean, who here DIDN'T love seeing Yin's Batwave smashed and having the Bat signal appear at the end of the episode?

    It's unfortunate that they tried to cram so much into this. The Rojas and GPD plot was fine, and even though Riddler was cool, Penguin and Joker didn't get to do much. I understand Penguin looking like a fool, but you'd think Joker would get SOME advantage some time. I really like The Batman's Riddler, but unfortunately, I lost some of the interest I had in The Joker.

    Five stars. I, like most of you, enjoyed this ep. I liked finally seeing Commissioner Gordon on the Batman. I like his design for the show and Mitch Pileggi did a good job as Gordon.
    Though the rivalry idea was interesting and nice to see Batman finally getting a break from the GCPD pursuing him. I, like many of you, also wanted to see Rojas get his comeuppance (Though the difference between me and the rest of you is my idea of comeuppance for Rojas is him getting fired!). Can't wait for next week.

    ****1/2. Why? Well, some things about it just bugged me.
    1) Joker and Penguin tagging Gotham. What a load of garbage.
    2) Gordon showing up, the city liking Batman, all occured a little to quickly for my taste. It needed to happen, but the course of one episode was just quick.
    3) Batman using an exploding Batarang on an oil derrick. Maybe he didn't blow anthing up, but what was he thinking?

    Other than that, it was all good. Rojas finding out about Yin and Batman. Rojas destroying the communicator. The Batsignal. The fights. Batman cornered in the warehouse. The hint about Barbara. A great end to what was basically a great season. Look forward to next weeks season premiere.

    It can only get better...

    What I loved about this episode:
    1. dialogue. Some shows don't need dialogue, but The Batman does. It performs horribly without it.
    2. story. The story in this episode just made sure that the show would stand on continuity. I'm a sucker for continuity.
    3. Yin. I've been waiting for an episode where Yin is a key component.
    Well, next week is time for the Batgirl, and I'm extatic.

    Spoilers are allowed for THIS episode, but not future ones. If you DO want to discuss future plots use spoiler tags. Like this:
    Spoiler:
    Fone Bone rocks!
    You make them by first typing {spoiler}the spoiler here then {/spoiler}. But instead of actually using {} use [] instead.

    Unfortunately, Rojas may be too thick to actually get that. Dude needs to be fired, kicked out on the street, develope a drinking problem, lose his family, get beaten up by hobos, eaten by wild dogs and defecated into a sewer. Only then, will I consider Karma actually working.

    The way I see it, Gordon's testing the waters with Batman. He understands what Rojas is getting at. Right now, it's the sort of uneasy wartime alliance. It's past the time where the Batman could have been arrested with the least risk, now with the incoming glut of supervillains seeking to control Gotham.
