The New Batman Adventures Review

Girls' Nite Out
Batman is out of Gotham on different business could Gotham really have a rare night of peace? No Gotham's criminals dont take a rest Bat or no Bat. To make matters worse for Batgirl who is the only protector of the city at the moment a super criminal from Metropolis is being transported to a special clinic in Gotham to get treatment for her 'condition'. This villian is one of Superman's dangerous she is Livewire. The villian that can control electricity.
Batman calls Batgirl who is patroling Gotham to see how she is doing on her own that night when Batgirl is attacked by an escaped Livewire. Batman knows that she cant do this alone so he calls backup for her. Trying to get a hold of Superman who is also out of town Batgirl gets The Girl of Steel Supergirl. Supergirl gets there fast to see Batgirl still fighting the villan she doesnt get much action though since Livewire is low on energy and must flee from the fight.
Meanwhile Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy have been cooped up in their hide out for many months and are becoming restless. Harley suggests a night on the town but Ivy tells Harley they cant till they get some sort of 'edge'. Livewire seems to found herself getting a recharge from the villianess' toaster sitting on their counter she tells the two females to meet their edge. Gotham's only hope lies at Batgirl's and Supergirl's feet. Will Gotham make it through this girls night out?
My thoughts: This is definitely one of the best episodes of the series. Its nice seeing an all girl episode showing that we girls are capable and can handle anything. We aren't just a pretty face. I think Supergirl is pretty cool to. The animation was nicely done I still like the tradition style of Batman TAS series best.

Plot: 8/10

Actors: 10/10

Animation: 7/10

Humor: 8/10

Soundtrack: 10/10

Overall: 8/10

Quotes: "At least Superman had the smarts to keep his distance. Tsk tsk, half the size, half the strength, and apparently, half the brains." ~Livewire

"Are you out of your mind?!" "Yeah." ~Livewire and Harley Quinn

  1. Although this isn't my favorite episode, I agree this was a good one. I didn't like Livewire much but I do love Harley and Ivy.
    I agree that The New Batman Adventures's art style was not as good as the original series style. But the episodes "Mad Love", "Over the Edge" and "Old Wounds" are some of my favorite episodes of the series.
