Holy Rewatch Batman! "Penguin is a Girl's Best Friend"/"...Sets a Trend"/"...Disastrous End"
Tthe Penguin becomes a movie mogul, teams up with Marsha, Queen of Diamonds, and rides a solid gold tank! The Bat-rewatch does the show's second-ever three-parter with "Penguin is a Girl's Bet Friend"/"Penguin Sets a Trend"/"Penguin's Disastrous End."

An excerpt:
It’s obvious that the producers decided that, since the movie featured a villain team-up, and since they needed a way to stanch the hemorrhaging viewership, more team-ups were the way to go. The problem, however, has been in simply awful execution each time. Catwoman was unconvincingly crowbarred into an existing Sandman story, Penguin’s role in the Zodiac three-parter was minimal to nonexistent, which holds true here also, as Marsha serves very little practical purpose in the storyline, almost completely absent from the second part, and doing little in the first and third beyond looking hot and saying, “darling” as often as Burt Ward says, “holy.”
