I'm actually looking forward to this ep. I like Mirror Master's updated look. And also I can hear John Larroquete doing awesome in this role. He will just sound perfect. My only thing is The Flash looks a little to much like his JLU counterpart. Just the same animation lines and everything. Its just seems weird especially since this is supposed to be Barry Allen on a few levels. Guess Ive always thought of Barry being more buff and bulkier than Wally.
"Why have the new episodes been coming on so sparatically? Seems like one episode of The Batmans comes on with a rerun of Legion and vise versa." - baTT
I have a feeling that the reason they are doing that is so they can be finished with atleast the new seasons of the DC shows before the new Spiderman comes on. But i guess its kinda nice this way. I was afraid that after "White Heat" that the normal pattern of waiting 3-4 months for new eps after the first batch was shown would start back up.

Yes John Larroquete did an awesome job as Mirror Master. Made a rather stupid villian cool. I really liked this Flash. I liked the impulsive part to him. But I always though Barry Allen was more of a straight shooter calm guy. This Flash seemed more like Wally. I loved his whole scarfing down of whatever Alfred had to eat. The pacing back and forth. The fast talking. I really loved the part where he starts talking about Mirror Master and it gets really fast that Batman has to make him slow down. Nice to see Mirror Master with a sidekick.
Next weeks ep looks like it will be good. Glad to see Joker back. I just really hope that sometime this season one of the teamups is Joker teaming up with a non-Batman villian when Batman teams up with another hero. I think that would be cool.

I really didnt like Flash in this episode. But did anyone notice just how much better the animation was this week than it was since season 5 started? This was some of the best animation since the times when they were directed so fluidly in seasons 1 and 2.
This is the first episode Ive seen since season 3 because I was on vacation this week. It was okay. Didnt like Flash, whys everyone on this show a comedian. A smartass. Its watchable, but it still doesnt do anything for me.
I enjoyed the episode and found the Flash entertaining, since he was funny (doesn't even pace calmly). Mirror Master was well done, and when Flash and Batman were thrown in the mirror, I thought they'd be talking backwards, but they didn't. Batman saves the day once more for another DC hero
I did not enjoy this one as much as I thought I would.
THE STORY This story had the most plot holes of any recent TB episode. Even more upsetting, Mirror Master's ultimate plot did not add up. He has created this device which can transplant everyone into a mirror world, but his main goal is just to rob the wealthiest people in Gotham? It just wasn't logical to go through all that trouble for pocket change. Lately, I don't like how these powerful villains (Vertigo, Phosphorous, and now Mirror Master) are just in it for the money. It seems like a tired plot device.
CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT The Flash is the worst superhero "guest star" so far. I don't know what was going on when the writers wrote his part. Did they think that making him talk-super fast would be funny? Or that having him eat really fast would be even funnier? Even worse, whoever voiced him did such a terrible job at trying to make him talk fast. I think after the recording sessions, the writers should have realized that their characterization of the Flash was not going to work. But instead of realizing this, they went ahead with the terrible, fast-paced nonsense they originally conceived. The Flash is not the greatest DC superhero, but come on, show him a little respect. These heroes should not be thrown into the plot purely to generate laughs. It didn't generate any laughs from me-- In fact, I switched back and forth between this and CNN every time the Flash made an appearance. I was simply embarrassed to be watching.
On that note, Mirror Master was okay. Robin was more annoying than usual this time around, but Alfred and Bats were great.
THE WRITING It seems like this script was just thrown together at the last minute and rushed into production without anyone checking it. It was really, really sub-par, and reminds me more of what I'd see in a season 1 episode.
