I have finished watching all of my Volume 3 DVD's and it was tough choosing just one favorite episode with so many great ones but I have picked Second Chance, it was super great seeing the care Batman has for Harvey Dent and how he will never give up on him. My favorite part is at the end where Dick says you are always there for Harvey, and Bruce looks at Dick and responds like you are always there for me. Great Bruce and Dick moment...

Just got done with Disc 1 of Volume 3, I have a few more discs to watch before I vote, but after Disc 1 I would lean towards one of The Demon's Quest episode's, probably part 1. And the worst episode for me so far was Blind as Bat, only because The Penquin is really lame in The Animated Series. And does anybody know if the episode entitled His Silicon Soul was inspired from T2 because of how popular the film was around the time of this episode?
His Silicon Soul was based off a fight scene that was cut out of an earlier episode (Heart of Steel Part II). Before the factory was going to blow up, Batman was going to have to fight his robot version. Because the episode was all ready so full, they could not include it, so they recycled it.
I agree that their version of Penguin was quite lame. The only episode that I liked him in was Almost Got 'Im. The rest were kind of lame.
As far as my favorite episode of the season, I don't know. Some of my favorites are Demon's Quest Part II (part I was only okay), Read My Lips, Riddler's Reform, Second Chance, Trial, Bane, The Worry Men, Sideshow, Catwalk, and Lock-Up. Out of all of them, I guess I go for Trial. All of the ones listed are great though.
I was surprised by The Worry Men because I didn't think it would be nearly as cool. Then it turned out Mad Hatter was the bad guy. I'm a sucker for Mad Hatter.
I would have voted for either Shadow of the Bat or The Demon's Quest if they would have been considered as one episode each - I couldn't vote for half of a story...With that criteria I voted for Read My Lips - I love the "film noir" style of that episode and others such as A Bullet for Bullock and Vendetta -

"Second Chance" has to be my favorite from the season. Most, if not all, of Two-Face's episodes happen to be dramatic with unexpected twists because of his personalities, like in "Judegement Day" of Volume 4.

I believe that Second Chance was definitely the best episode to feature Two Face. While the two parter origin was awesome, I think Second Chance really displays the obsession with the coin, the multiple personality, and Harvey's friendship with Bruce. It isn't quite my favorite, but it was awesome.
I would also say this is the best episode for Penguin as well. Even though he had a minimal role, it was much better than all of his "main villain" episodes. He was smart, creepy, and he looked better in a prison outfit than he did in his traditional suit. Not to mention that he was in Stone Gate. This was one of the few times we got to see the prison rather than Arkham.
