Storyline

Vince, a temperamental physician at a Gotham City hospital (apparently a takeoff on Ben Casey), saves Batman and Robin. The Dynamic Duo resume their pursuit of Mr. Freeze. Eventually, Batman substitutes himself for Paul Diamonte, a baseball player, Mr. Freeze has kidnapped. Robin, disobeying Batman's orders to stay away, is also captured by the villain. Now, in his headquarters, Mr. Freeze is using his climate controls so that only Batman or Robin will have access to life-giving warmth. Written by Bill Koenig

On almost all fronts this is a misfire. The pacing is slow, there are some fairly complicated optical effects to show hot and cold but this seems to slow things down as well. The fight scenes also seem half hearted and there aren't many clever lines or situations. Robert Butler directs poorly this time, key sight gags are missing.

I love George Saunders but aside from some funny intentionally bad German accent moments he looks uncomfortable in the Mr. Freeze suit and handles the various weapons very poorly. He makes almost no impression in the role. Little wonder he did not return for more Mr. Freeze episodes.

This whole episode, this being part two, is not good, more on the level of Lost in Space that this series at its best.
