Very good Episode. I loved that they used Alfred in this. He seems to never really get much play. However, this new series, seems to utilize him a lot. I also liked the first episode with the Penguin, that established a long history of enmity between the Pennyworths and the Cobblepots....

Heh, I finally got the TiVo hooked up, and put it to good use this morning. ;D
The episode itself was very good. There was some excellent character interaction between Alfred and Bruce, a nice plot, great designs for Spellbinder's hallucinations, and I really enjoyed seeing Alfred take the spotlight. I also liked seeing such a different take on Spellbinder, who was used most prominently in Batman Beyond, but initially appeared in the comics, I believe, as a woman.
Alexx Van Dyne did a great job on his first script for this series, and Brandon Vietti, as usual, did an excellent job with the directing.
Overslept for this episode - it's the first premiere I've missed so far. That time slot is just too cruel for a Saturday morning. Will have to wait for the rerun; until then, I'm enjoying everyone's reviews! ;D

I was able to catch both episodes this morning, I gotta admit I was fighting through the spell binder episode because I was really tired. I liked the episode, and like everybody else I thought the use of Alfred was great. It's funny because awhile ago I was talking to Thomas about using Alfred more and he said to stay tuned, and wa-la an episode featuring Alfred. I am with Batdan and felt that Spell Binder's voice should have been a bit more mysterious and not so thug like...

[glow=purple,2,300][shadow=green,left,300]This was an excellent use of Alfred. I was really impressed when they first showed the connection between the Pennyworths and the Cobblepotts, and if the Spellbinder returns, this could prove to be a rival for Alfred (other then the Penguin)[/shadow][/glow]
