I Am Wild About This Two-Parter
28 March 2010 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

I have reviewed many Batman episodes on the IMDb and this two-parter is probably the second best two-parter (after the pilot) in the whole Batman series. I tell it like it is, and with that in mind, let me say that there is nothing I can point out as being wrong with this two-parter: it just goes from one great scene to the next!

Amazing film-like television with amazing characters and amazing images. Even narrator William Dozier sounds more thrilling than usual. In this first season, Batman was an adventure series first and a comedy second. The Joker Is Wild features some Joker moments in act one that are not too unlike some of The Joker moments in the Warner Brothers Batman motion picture of 1989.

So here it is, some totally wild film-like television that you will never forget!
