What’s this? It’s not a Transformers episode? Its Batman fighting against possibly-sentient robots and their master Hardac (created by Cybertron Industries), who seeks to replace all humans with machines. We talk about the Blade Runner influences to this episode, wonder just how much control some of these robots have from Hardac, and talk about Barbara Gordon’s first entry into the series. This is Batman: The Animated Series – Season 1 – Episodes 39 & 40 – Heart Of Steel (Part 1 & Part 2).
