    Not an episode but with the movies you were listing at the end. I loved Batman: Under The Red Hood. I thought Jensen Ackles did fantastic voice work and the entire movie was (as Stephen keeps saying) GREAT. I think they need to bring that character into some of the other animated shows or make Red Hood and the Outlaws into an animated series.

    I agree with Stephen, Batman the Animated Series is the definitive Batman. A few episodes that would be in my Top Five (besides most of what was mentioned in the show):

    If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Rich? — Like other groundbreaking concepts from this series, this episode introduced the concept that The Riddler is a dangerous and formidable foe. Okay, this is where Matthew confirms or contradicts that statement.

    Harley’s Holiday — Sometimes it’s the ending that can make an episode for me. “I had a bad day too. Once.” “Nice guys like you shouldn’t have bad days.” Gets me every time.

    House and Garden — Another emotional ending that makes this episode. Poor Ivy.

    The Clock King — Like The Riddler, The Clock King proves good planning and intelligence can make you a good villain. Wish we had more Clock King episodes.

    Second Chance — Who is Harvey Dent’s worst enemy? It makes perfect sense when all is revealed.
