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.

@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

@AMT I won't be surprised if he appears, and I hope Phil LaMarr reprises his role from JL if John does indeed appear.

@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.

@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.

@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.

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

@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.

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.

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.

@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...
TheVengeanceKnight
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!).
