Forget the goofy set up. Forget the convoluted plot points, the out of left field backstory of an implied Batman and guest star Zatanna failed romance, the weird Hades subplot, the nonsensical walk-on appearances by a slacker-sounding Bwana Beast, Red Tornado, Elongated Man, and the Crimson Avenger. None of it made sense, and was all minor eye candy and misdirection.
The whole point of the episode is that to free Wonder Woman fromthe evil Circe’s spell, which transformed her into a porcine princess, Batman makes an unholy pact with the goddess…
Yes. Batman sings.
Who’d have thought something so profoundly silly turned out to be… well, good? And kind of sweet and touching?
Episode’s Funniest line: “Insolent trickster! You dare to strike… OW! You DARE to stri–AOW!-- You dare to-- Ow-ow! … Quit it! (pause) Oh, no…”
Episode’s Most Enlightening moment: the correct pronounciation of “Hippolyta.”
