    I thought this was a great "fun" episode, in the same vein as HARLEY & IVY, ALMOST GOT 'IM, and BEWARE THE CREEPER. Sure, it's all action and little emotional depth, but who cares? It's written really well, and Roxy is a nice change from the other female villains we've had for a while. The subplot with the Penguin was a great add-on, too; even as a legit businessman, he still kicks some ass.

    4 stars!

    Is it me or did they do some editing at the climax (pun intended)?

    a good, fun, action episode. good chase scenes, i especially liked the chase through the highway tunnel, dodging trucks and the like. i thought roxy was a great addition to the rogues gallery, being just as gutsy and slippery as batman, if not more so. its a shame this is also one of her rare appearances on the show

    coolest scene is where batman holds the penguin over the patio, did anyone else notice his oversized cape?

    "I knew it would be this way. The final stunt is the best!" -Roxy Rocket

    ***1/2

    This episode was an interesting one. Roxy Rocket is a very interesting and unique character and we get a glimpse at the "respectable business" man known as the Penguin.

    Again, the absence of Robin bugged me a bit, and just the fact that Batgirl was there again for no reason....
    "Leaping Lanny and Randy Savage are brothers, and Randy Savage, your name is Randy Poffo. THAT'S RIGHT, RANDY POFFO. You're ashamed of going around calling yourself Poffo so you probably got the name Savage because you're ashamed of putting yourself on the same level as your brother because he is much better than you are. YOUR BROTHER IS A HUMAN BEING. YOU'RE NOTHING BUT A SCUMBAG. THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE; YOU'RE A DOG. YOUR NAME IS POFFO." - Ronnie Garvin to Randy Savage, ICW Wrestling, 1980.

    If Batman keeps Anti-JLA files does his protégé write Anti-Young Justice recipes in his cookbook?

    **1/2

    I didn't like this episode much but it gets **1/2 for using the Penguin. I always wanted to see more of him as a legitimate businessman.

    A fun and amusing episode. Roxy Rocket is probably the best new character in the new Batman animated series. Batman's meetying with Penguin was great and the climax between Batman and Roxy Rocket was perfect for this episode.

    Sounds like I missed a good one. I KNEW that I should have set the VCR before going to the doctor!
