Great show. It is a pity that first i had to look it with the dub(which was pretty good, but Keaton's Jordan was much more fun and emotional)

I had my doubts about this show, especially after the bad taste that the Green Lantern movie left in my mouth. But my friends and fellow comic book nerds insisted that I watch this show and that it was completely different from the movie.

Finally, I found it on Netflix and watched it beginning-to-end. From that day on, I wondered how on earth I could have missed out on something so great...and learn that it was canned. So good was this show that it got my youngest brother into the Green Lantern lore, despite previously being apathetic to it in the past. It even got my dad's like and he's very picky when it comes to superheroes outside of Marvel.

The characters? Great. They felt truly human, were never two-dimensional, and bounced off of each other very well.

The voice acting? Also great. They had a good range of emotion, handled their lines very well, and fit their characters very well. Props especially to Josh Keaton and Jonathan Adams as Hal Jordan and Atrocitus respectively.

The animation? Pretty slick and it takes good advantage of the Lantern Ring powers. Only real problem is that the "flying" is more an "aggressive float", but I mean that more as a joke than anything else.

(sigh) Another great show down the drain.

Y'know, I wish this got another season. This is (IMO) a great series for those wanting to take interest in the Green Lantern franchise.

GL:TAS had some great voice acting, with cool animation to boot. The first season had a great story too. The second could get a bit messy, but that could have easily been resolved with a new season or two. A shame this got canned.

I finished watching this recently, and I really loved it. I thought the writing for the second season got a bit messy, but I was still consistently entertained and loved the characters throughout. The whole cast did a great job, especially the main four. Hal Jordan is probably my favorite performance I've ever seen of Josh Keaton, and Jason Spisak and Jonathan Adams in particular really knocked it out of the park as Razer and Atrocitus.

The animation is some of the best I've seen for a 3D cartoon and I especially loved the colors and lighting effects. Yeah, things looked a little bit waxy at times, but for made-for-TV 3D animation, this is really high-quality stuff and was surprisingly detailed. The action scenes and energy constructs in particular looked awesome.

I don't really know anything when it comes to Green Lantern, but I still loved this even as a newcomer. I really, REALLY wished this show would have lasted at least one more season so there would have been more Sinestro. He was such a fascinating character and it was a crying shame he was only in one episode... and what I said right there says a lot about how cool he was.

Who knows, maybe this will get a continuation in some form eventually (probably won't), but I definitely enjoyed my time with it. I would personally go so far to say that if this show had continued, it could have been DC's best animated series ever.

The problem this show had was that it fell into the same trap of taking itself for granted that Young Justice and ThunderCats 2011 did before it; it thought too highly of itself and assumed that it'd be around for another season without paying attention to what its continuation really rode on (the GL movie's success), so it set up all these plot points that would ultimately never see their pay-off and leave many loose ends and unsatisfied viewers instead of devoting more time to knitting a more tightly-woven, self-contained story that would at least have potential to leave us off on a high note. I'm rather not fond of the mindset these grown-up shows have in thinking they have all the time in the world without any guarantee that they actually do, and children's television is certainly not the place to make that kind of blind risk.
said at 7:47 PM on Sat May 17 2014
@CatsTuxedo Yes, clearly all action shows should just remain mediocre forever and not aspire for anything big ever again. Because clearly, creators should just try to pander instead of doing something they would enjoy, because that's clearly how the creative process works. *sarcasm*

Not to mention it makes no sense to complain about that sort of thing on this show. It resolved its main storyline clearly. The only tease they left unsolved is the whole Darkest Night story, and even then that's set-up as an easter egg that can be missed. Anyone who doesn't know much about the comic books or the plans for future seasons would only see a satisfyingly concluded story.

This, Young Justice, the DCAU, and a majority of the DC animated films have some of the best drama I've ever seen in animation.

I can't say the same for the drama in the animes I've seen, most of it is forced (Evangelion) or outright horrible (Elfen Lied). Wolf's Rain is probably one of the few animes I've seen that does the emotional moments well.

Anyways getting off topic. Where as Marvel is my inspiration for likable characters and stories, DC is my favorite when it comes to the heavier, deeper moments that you rarely see done so well in most action cartoons.

A shame this show ended so soon, but I like the cold feeling of a bittersweet/downer endings. It leaves me wanting more.

Yet another great show to fall under the 26 episode curse. Spectacular Spider-Man, Wolverine and the X-Men, Thundercats, and now Green Lantern TAS.

I hope Kyle Rayner appears later on. He's always getting the short end of the stick when it comes to animated adaptations of GL.

I like this version of Hal Jordan, he's much more fun and enjoyable, he retains a youthful, yet mature tone and Josh Keaton does a great job! This has actually made me like Hal Jordan's character a bit more, but I still wanna see John Stewart in the series! =D
said at 3:48 AM on Mon May 21 2012
@AMT I won't be surprised if he appears, and I hope Phil LaMarr reprises his role from JL if John does indeed appear.
said at 5:19 AM on Mon May 21 2012
@TheVengeanceKnight Amen, brutha! ;D
said at 12:42 AM on Tue May 22 2012
@AMT Also, if they bring Kyle Rayner in as well, I hope Will Friedle comes back to play him again, especially since he's already voicing a secondary character on the show.
said at 10:39 PM on Mon Jan 21 2013
@TheVengeanceKnight There's apparently to Boy Meets World being made and well if you knew the show/saw the finale there's chance he'll return to live acting for it as to be accurate follow up would have the focus on the 4 characters who all moved away together to NYC in the finale though he could record some lines before hand.
said at 3:10 PM on Tue Jan 22 2013
@TheVengeanceKnight There's apparently a follow up to. That's what the first sentence should say.
said at 9:38 PM on Sat Apr 13 2013
@AMT Well, he ended up getting a namedrop from Guy, which was pretty funny. Sucks that the series had to end, we probably would've been able to see him in Season 2.

@TheVengeanceKnight I know. I really wanted to see that illustrious news guy on the show as well. :P

This show really surprised me. In fact, I don't think it even had one "OK" or bad episode up to this point. It's been consistency fun.
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 1:58 AM on Thu Apr 19 2012
@ConfusedPhantom I think it started off just "ok" because I wasn't too fond of the tone of the show with Hal Jordan being so jokey. I understand that it's supposed to be a buddy-cop type show but I felt it should/could be more serious.

As the episodes have progressed I'm loving Hal Jordan's "do whatever it takes to save someone/thing" and the show is getting deeper and deeper into the Green Lantern mythology. Razer is also a great anti-hero.

Such a good show, with interesting characters and nice interactions. I like hearing Jason and Josh doing roles we're not normally use to them doing
said at 6:16 PM on Tue Apr 3 2012
@Music Meister odd, since they are just opposite sides of the same coin to me. I mean they both were Flash. That kind of bonds them together in my mind.

@Aquafox84 Yeah I do think they sound alike, and I can see them doing the same kinds of roles.

@Aquafox84 Also technically Josh was Flash and Jason was Kid Flash but still do understand what you mean.

@Aquafox84 O_O I did not realize that. *head explodes*

Speaking of which, I really wish Bruce Timm and co. would make a Flash: The Animated Series.

@Music Meister Phil Morris too. Hard to believe Vandal Savage and Saint Walker are voiced by the same man!

@TheVengeanceKnight @TheVengeanceKnight Flashpoint will be the next DC animated movie after Dark Knight Returns. If it sells well, it'll be a good step towards an animated series.

And Phil Morris has one of those refined voices. I put him in the same category as Kelsey Grammar and David Hyde Pierce.

@TheVengeanceKnight Would have done a DTV movie for Flash and Aquaman but bad sales for the Wonder Woman movie ruined that.

Could be better if John Stewart was the central character, but thats just me.

@AMT to be honest, if his use of the ring is as boring as it was in Justice League, then I'm glad it's not him. Green beams and bubbles 90% of the time was so boring. Then again, Hal hardly made use of the ring in a more imaginative way. It was Kyle Rayner was the one that spiced up the constructs. Either way, I hope that Stewart, Rayner and Gardner are recurring characters.
said at 3:13 AM on Mon Jun 20 2011
@Foxwolf Well, to be fair, the only reason they did that was to distance themselves from Superfriends, where GL was just known as the guy who would make a giant catcher's mitt, or whatever.

I agree, though, that Kyle seemed to be the only one who made anything interesting...
said at 10:37 PM on Sun Mar 4 2012
@Foxwolf IDK man, using the ring to create complex constructs seems a bit gimmicky, like one GL member would favor a specific construct. I.e. Hal Jordan favoring drills, and Killowog favoring hammers (he even said so in the pilot!).
