For the past three weeks I’ve been talking exhaustively about Batman: The Animated Series through a collection of posts called Batman: The Animated Series: Revisited. Today, to round things off, I am taking one more look at the show in order to rank the episodes from worst to best.

I’m not going to provide an in-depth discussion about each story, there are 20+ posts that cover this already, instead I’m going to simply provide a list of the episodes in order of bad to good. Of course, this list is subjective, so I expect a little grumbling from fans here and there.

For ease I’ve grouped two-part stories together, so the 109 episodes have been condensed into a list of 102.
