The villain's plot is ingenious: Mess with the sound waves over Gotham, and suddenly no one can understand anyone else. And some masterful editing keeps the subjective and objective points-of-view, and the resulting intersection of confusions, beautifully lucid. Beyond the technical skills manifested by Shriek and the show's editors, however, there isn't much except some action scenes—chatty sequences about Batman's responsibilities only remind us that "babel" and "blabber" are closely related.
