Episode 74: Batman The Animated Series - Heart of Steel P1&2 and If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?

Welcome to The Uncaped Crusaders Review! This is a podcast where Mark and Ian discuss (and rant) about all things Batman!

The format of the show has changed some as we have moved Movie Swap to it's own YouTube Show! So this show will go back to us talking about any Batman related news and then about the Batman content. Hopefully this will streamline the episodes better.

This week we are back in Batman: The Animated Series with three more episodes. First it's the two-part Heart of Steel which is a combination of about 10 different sci-fi references/plots all crammed into two episodes. This takes aspects of 2001: A Space Odyssey with H.A.R.D.A.C. which is an AI who takes power from his human master in order to replace all humans with robots. This AI is basically H.A.L. from 2001 with the same emotionless tone and red light as it's "eye." It's got a ton of T2, which had come out just a year prior, and several other sci-fi staples. We also are introduced to Barbara Gordon for the first time.

In the other episode, If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich? we get introduced to The Riddler, voiced by the great John Glover, and Batman and Robin have to solve the Riddle of the Minotaur maze.
