Despite Being A Lesser Episode, Penguin Gives Life To It
18 December 2019 | by Desertman84See all my reviews

"Fine Finny Fiends" is the penultimate episode of the first season of "Batman".

In it,we get to see thugs kidnap Alfred the Butler who are being paid by Penguin,who has plans to take the proceeds of Bruce Wayne's annual dinner at the Wayne Manor. But the Dynamic Duo comes to the rescue but the Penguin was able to trap them in a room wherein air is being sucked slowly.And numerous events happen until the Dynamic Duo succeeded in their mission.

While the episode is not better compared to previous episodes,we get to see a great performance from Burgess Meredith as Penguin. Although he runs out of scheme as expected for the Dynamic Duo to prevail,he provides life to Penguin.
