Becoming Batman - Episode Six

In Episode Six of "Becoming Batman" - Entitled (oddly) "#38" - the search for a Robin has begun.

With the recent release of The Dark Knight on DVD and Blu-Ray, I have been able to appreciate these videos better than ever. I have been finding tiny subtleties in the script and actions that are just making this series better than ever.

In this episode, our hero is trying to justify the reasons for the need to have a Robin sidekick:
-"Why is Robin good?"
-"He's not!"
-"He gives someone for Batman to talk too"
-"You don't need someone to talk too"
-"He appeals to a younger demographic"
-"What does that even mean?"

Becoming Batman - Episode Six - "#38"

It is good to see further hints towards the transformation in our hero's friend into The Joker ("What?...Don't wink!").
