Anyone else catch them today? Thoughts? It was obvious that neither of
them meant it to be a series finale, and truthfully, I'd much rather
have another season of them then Teen Titans Go! and the new Batman
show. As much as I liked Teen Titans, Go! just doesn't seem
interesting to me. A new Batman series seems even less so, and that
art style turns me off completely.
I can't say I was a huge fan of Green Lantern when it started, but it
began to grow on me til the end.
I would have liked to see Razer with the Blue Lantern ring to end it
off, but at least it felt closer to a series finale than Young Justice
Young Justice did a pretty good job of wrapping up the major
storylines, and giving us a hint of what the third season would have
Although if you were familiar with the comics, and that Godfrey was a
minion of Darkseid in them, it wouldn't have been a surprise.
The episode itself was alright, it would have benefited from being a
two-parter just so the MFD disabling could have been less rushed than
it was. I did chuckle at them playing up the scarab drones as being as
strong as a beetle warrior, and then them all getting destroyed in a
hit. Inverse ninja-rule, I guess.
Holy balls though on killing off Kid Flash. I can't recall any Marvel
or DC show actually killing a main character on camera. Usually they
write them off by retiring off screen or sending them to a different
dimension or something. That was another moment that would have
benefited by the show being a two-parter though. They had established
that he wasn't as fast as Impulse and Flash, but it didn't feel like
his death was shown as effective as it could have been just because it
had to occur so quickly. It could have been better if they at least
shown that he was aware that his death was likely, or handled it like
they did Flash's near death in Justice League, where he goes so fast
to merge with the Speed Force. The way they did it made him look a bit
pathetic, in my mind.
