WHAT HAS SHE DONE? Something is afoot. Meanwhile, Alfred charges Barbara with the most important of tasks - finding his wandering bro. He's also invented the iPa…

As Ivy sends Freeze off on his little errand, our heroes catch a whiff of some interesting pheromones. Where do they know this delightful scent from?!?!? Victor is having a bit of trouble fetching his gear. Don't you just hate uninvited guests? Well, CHOKE ON THIS! Ah, now we're chilled. Joining the investigation is author, lecturer and podcaster A…
 
Batman and Robin are both puzzled as to how their feelings for Ivy just vanished. I’m puzzled too, my feelings for her have never faltered, never waned. Hehe - Wayned. Anyway, she's packing those great stems and fantastic buds. OPEN SESAME! I feel like Chicken Tonight! Even if I'm no match for The Bat and The Bird... Concluding her beat this week i…
 
We’re back as Bruce and Alfred have the closest these two probably ever get to a back-slapping hug. Aww. Dick bursts in and ruins the moment but he’s got good cause to be fair - FREEZE HAS ESCAPED! He’s heard the news… somehow. Gordon has the evidence - some of the BEST surveillance camera footage the world has ever known! Returning to crack this c…
 
The security guards break in - they’re gonna grab Bane! RUN, MY PRETTY! FLY! THEY'RE GOING TO SHOOT! Bruce asks “Alfred, are you well?”. A weird question considering we know that he’s not, but okay. He isn't going to let the mask slip, however - he's a gent, after all. Joining the investigation this week is our resident Bat Minute Hall of Famer - i…
 
Freeze has the solution to his power problem - he needs his diamonds! They power the suit, remember. A slightly costly fuel this, man, but okay. Anyway, time for an exit strategy... Ivy slaps Bane on the chest to level him up and off he stomps to pound a hole in the wall… but he fails. REINFORCED STEEL, NOT GOOD! Maybe take advantage of the NON-win…
 
Ivy proposes! A pairing, that is. Meanwhile, Bane sprints through the corridors with Freeze’s suit in a trolley. Countless ineffectual guards just bounce off him like wrestling referees trying to stop a fight. A LAUNDRY SERVICE THAT DELIVERS! WOW! But for a 50" waist?!?!? Returning to the investigation is the chaplain of the Movies by Mintues podca…
 
Ivy thinks that men are rather absurd creatures. Is she wrong? She IS to die for, after all! The Riddler and Two-Face make a return to the franchise! IN A WAY?!?!? Impressive. Most impressive... Joining the investigation in divine style is none other than Father David Mowry! Backing him up in this Next Scene are the familial duo of Sean and Brian G…
 
Freeze continues his little craft lesson. Following a YouTube tutorial or something I guess, 'The Lighthouse' style. Our Icehead has a visitor... sister? SISTER?!?!? Regardless, he's feeling blue no more, that's for sure... and these guards are about to feel the heat! Taking a final crack at this case are Duncan Shields and Curtis Bloes! There's no…
 
Barbara continues to be a little ignorant of Dick’s distress... but she drops a bombshell of her own - her own distress, her own pain. Alfred is sick and it's no bull - Bruce can tell. After pondering this sad moment we then cut back to Arkham and Mr Freeze appears to be whittling some kind of a… doll? A human? COULD IT BE A NEW WIFE?!?!? It’s just…
 
Dick wants to know how long Barb has been racing. She ain’t no noob, man... but you wouldn't understand! Things get a little 'Depeche Mode' as our Oxbridge lass makes this all about a 'Master and Servant'! Joining the investigation this week are the supreme beings, so they're not entirely dim - it's Duncan Shields and Curtis Bloes! This duo might n…
 
We’re back as some hooligans are going to add a little life to this party - with chains and bombs, bay-bay. Sebulba crashes his pod - poodoo! Just as Dick and Barb are about to take a tumble, he stops to comment on where she likes to hang out. Not classy, dude. Returning to the race and the case one final time is none other than Barter Town's fines…
 
It's that Juggalo Call: Whoop Whoop! It seems like Dick is attempting to ‘save’ Barbara, a woman who clearly doesn’t need his help whatsoever. Good move, dude. As the racers head over a bridge we see the Sand People are going to attack! Once more entering the Thunderdome that is Gotham City are Rick and Julia Ingham from the Mad Max Minute podcast!…
 
Could we clone a neanderthal today? Would I get sick if I ate the Mona Lisa? Why aren't there other animals as smart as humans? What is the skin of your teeth? Would turning on a flashlight in space, would it move you? Has anyone ever tried to use lightning as a power source? Hank and John Green have answers! If you're in need of dubious advice, em…
