The brilliant, instant classic series peak finds Joker, Penguin, Two-Face, Killer Croc, and Poision Ivy surly and defeated, playing poker in a dive while they commiserate over their shared hatred of the Dark Knight, as colorful flashback vignettes recounting each respective rogue’s moment where they thought for sure they had him dead plays.

But there’s more to the story than good old-fashioned reminiscing, as revealed when it’s Joker’s turn for storytime, naturally. The interaction between the five villains, all sharing of circumstance but still not particularly fond of each other, is golden, and the twist is great fun. If the last moment doesn’t make you crack a smile, maybe something on PBS is more your speed.
