    I have to say... this one may have been the hardest one for me yet !! 3 Top 10 shows here, easily, so I have to agree with Randy H above that maybe this isn't the best way to come up with the definitive best shows-

    Anyway, I narrowed it down to:

    Second Chance
    Catwalk
    Harleyquinnade

    and had to go with CATWALK, even though SECOND CHANCE is probably the better story. Something about CATWALK that I just LOVED. The Batman / Catwoman dynamic, great animation (especially that "Flashback" fighting scene), and Selina mocking Scarface... LOVED this episode !!

    Dude, I, of course, went with SECOND CHANCE. It's easily the best of the bunch here.

    RIDDLER'S REFORM and CATWALK were the only other ones I really liked in this bunch. BANE and SHOWDOWN had their own share of good moments, too.

    Why HARLEQUINADE is getting so many votes, I'll never understand. That episode, especially the ending, was gawd-awful; ugh, I can't stand how Paul Dini wrote that bomb of a script. (He made up for it with HARLEY'S HOLIDAY, though, which is my choice on the next poll.)

    :) Sorry, I went on a rant there. I just remember watching that episode for the first time when I was 14 or 15 and thought, "man, the Joker aspect of this episode is too corny and Harley isn't even that screwy". I dunno. I'm really tough on Dini's Joker/Harley scripts. :p

    I came thiiiiiiis close to voting for Baby Doll (which had one of the best endings of any BTAS episode), but Time Out of Joint was just so much fun to watch.

    "You can play all you like. You and I both know that I'm going to put you away because you can't help yourself. You can't stop. And I'll be waiting." -Batman to The Riddler, Riddler's Reform

    I think one of the reasons I voted for Riddler's Reform is since I just saw it again on CN this past week. (In retrospect I wish I would've voted for Second Chance, but it's too late now. :( ) "Reform" is a great episode and may very well be the best Riddler one. I love how Batman beat Nygma at his own game, and his rant in Arkham after Batman won't tell him how he escaped.


    "It's impossible, I tell you! Impossible! My trap was perfect! How did he do it!? I have to know! Somebody tell me! It's not fair! There was no way, I tell you! No way he could have gotten out! Somebody tell me! Do you hear me!? Somebody tell me how he did it! I have to know! I have to know-w-w-w-w!" -The Riddler, Riddler's Reform

    I voted for "Time out of joint" because the whole time I watched that episode, I thought, "I WANT one of those time distorters."

    Heh. So far no one has voted for "The Terrible Trio." :rolleyes:


    "Harlequinade", "Bane", "Riddler's Reform", & "Second Chance" are the only choices I even liked from this round, with "Harlequinade" being my favorite of the bunch.

    I Voted for Riddler's Reform. I love the feel of it. The Riddler along with th Mad Hatter is my bad guy on Batman. I allso love the Terrible Trio and Second Chance but Reform gets my vot in the end.

    I voted for The Lion and the Unicorn. I really liked seeing more into Alfred. I really would love to see more Batman Beyond revelations on what happened to old Alfred and some of the other TAS characters.

    Amen to that, I liked knowing what happened to Barbara.\
    But what happened to some of the old villians - Bruce is still around so where are they?
    Alfred would be a good one to know the history, maybe there is a rose being placed somewhere for him also.

    Number One x 2

    Second Chance. An actual mystery, interrogation, Batman as detective...and friend.

    My runner-up: Showdown, an unorthodox Ra's story. And until recently, I had thought Hex was a character the boys at WB Animation made up.

    But...SC was the best of the list.

    Harlequinade get's my vote hands down. Although "Second Chance" and "Riddler's Reform", are great epsidoes I just had to go with Harlequinade. That episode has got to be one of my all time favorites. I hope it wins. It looks like it may be a close one. :(

    I voted for "Second Chance". I actually don't really remember it that well, and I have no clue about why the hell I voted for it, other than that I just seem to remember it being a really great episode.

    See ya!

    The Harvey Dent tradedy is always hard for me to overlook. It's so powerful, and anytime it is used well, it plays the strings of my heart.

    I like the relationship of Two-Face and Bruce Wayne as its portrayed in the episode. The suspense is good, the story flows well and it keeps you wondering.

    Honorable mentions include Harley, Time Out of Joint, and my runner-up, Showdown...(watch it again sometime soon for those who have it....its well written yet simple, and the animation is stifling).

    But, for the record, I'm going with Second Chance

    I went ahead and broke down and voted for Second Chance. I was torn between it and Harleyquinade, but voted for the Twoface episode.



    This is the first time I've participated in these polls, and I must say the voting looks tough.
