    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'm not partial to magic stories. Give me more realistic situations (Thorne, Cromwell, Dent, Dagget, etc.) any day. One star.

    This episode was a good change of pace and Jason Blood is a good character. Some of the dialogue was nicely done, and the animation was also nicely done.

    I agree with MILatino that this episode being mostly pure "magic" gets annoying as the story progresses and it seems to lean on it as a crutch. Etrigan was cool and again Robin was here!
    "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.

    I love this episode Batman and Jason Blood make great partners and the evil kid with the cat was cool too. I love magic, underworld, demon, and myth stories

    Five stars

    Bruce: "One million dollars!"

    Tim: "There goes my raise."

    Etrigan: "No strawberry, master..."

    Etrigan: "I'm sending him to his room!"



    Not only was this a very good portrayal of Jason Blood, it was funny too! I really liked how the Jason was explored, something which was sadly lacking in my second fave ep of JL, A Knight of Shadows. Animation was very well-done with the magic scenes.

    My only regret was that Tim never suited up.

    Um, it's actually, "Gone, gone the form of man. Rise, the Demon, Etrigan." Not to nitpick.

    I really enjoy this episode. I actually like the redesign of Etrigan for JL better, tho -- as it is closer to the comics, imho. But this version works well in this episode. Rewatching it again today, I totally forgot that Morgaine is even mentioned! Must have slipped by me every other time I've ever noticed it, but still a very nice touch by the writers.

    Tim is just a scene-stealer in this episode, at least for me. I love his interactions with Jason. All of his dialogue just slays me. And Jason has some sweet lines as well.

    Batman for his part was cool, as always. But the episode is driven more for me by the things beyond him. I'm actually partial to the mystical and magical stories (they aren't my favorite, but I like the variety they bring). And the battle just is too predictable for me, but all in all I really love this episode quite a bit.

    Even though this episode had good dialogue, a cool kid with a cat, and good animation, the story was really weird and kinda boring at times. I rated this episode 1 and a Half stars. I can't wait to see "Mad Love" on Wednesday, now that's a Hit Episode.

    I couldn't agree more. This episode was to much like a S:TAS storyline and supernatural is not the Dark Knight. 1/2 Stars

    Actually he did at the very end, he really didn't do anything though.

    I'm not into magic episodes, so I didn't really like "The Demon Within." I think the only thing I that this episode had going for it was its nice animation.
