Green Lantern The Animated Series Footage

I am still not completely sold on the animation, but the writing for the show is pretty good and the constructs come off well...If they keep it interesting then I will keep watching.
 
I love the characterization of Hal Jordan in this show. Great middle ground between Silver Age Hal and modern day Hal.
 
I love this show and Bruce F-ing Timm has done it again he was the midas touch when it comes to animation.
 
At first I was iffy about the animation in this, but now I love it, and I often find it to be quite stunning. And the characterization is wonderful so far. Bruce Timm just knows how to do animated superhero shows better than anyone, imo.

Gotta say, this show is really getting me into the Green Lantern universe for the first time ever. I mean, I realize it's probably pretty scaled down from the comics due to the budget, but I think it does paint a picture of just how much epic potential the concept of GL has. Now I've got the urge to seek out some GL comics...I guess this is as good a place as any to ask: any suggestions for a GL newbie?

Start with Secret Origin and see if you like that first.

I concur with this. I wasn't even that familiar with Green Lantern to begin with, and Secret Origin pretty much clued me in on everything that I needed to know, from Hal Jordan's background and personality, his relationship with Carol, how the rings work, The Guardians, the Green Lanterns themselves, etc.

It's basically "Green Lantern 101" or "Green Lantern for Dummies". :woot:

I'd also recommend Green Lantern: Rebirth. It's a great restart of the Green Lantern comic series but also another great starting point for new fans just starting to get into the character.
 
Thanks guys, I downloaded Secret Origin at Comixology. Two issues in and I'm definitely enjoying it, though like you said, it does just seem the bare bones basics. Guess I'm checking out Rebirth next! :up:

A lot happens between Secret Origin and Rebirth (pretty much 40 years of comics) so you might have to surf Wikipedia for a bit to catch up if you're not familiar with Guy, John, Kyle, and Hal's bad years.

After Rebirth I'd just go with Johns' run on the main book if you want Hal. If you like the other human Lanterns check out the Green Lantern Cops series.
 
As soon as I recognized Clancy Brown's voice, I thought, [BLACKOUT]"Yep, he's turning on them."[/BLACKOUT] :woot:

Yeah it was great, at first I didn't realize what was up with the planet but then it hit me.:awesome::up:

Same with me. It wasn't until the moment [BLACKOUT]when Hal drilled the hole into the planet[/BLACKOUT] the realization struck. :woot:

For me, the moment where
the planet was revealed to keep some people stuck in it.
 
There are simply not enough fans on GL boards, at least not as many as there are Spider man fans discussing Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, or as many as Avengers fans discussing Avengers :Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon in both Avengers sub forum and in the general TV series sub forum..

As there is a similar thread in TV series sub forums, this thread does not get as many visitors though Ultimate Spider-Man series thread and the the Avengers:EMH thread in Avengers sub forum does not face the same same problem.
 
Strange. It seems as much of a following as the comics have it's not rolled over into the show and maybe that's hampered somewhat by the response to the movie. This show has really got the goods IMO.
 
Well, there's another thread on this series in the Misc TV Series section as well.
 
The action in this show is off the chain.
 
I'd go the extra mile and say that everything about it is off the chain not just the action.
 
The writing on this show is well done. I am actually interested in the characters, which leads me to put up with the absolutely horrible animation style they use.

The action seems to always have good pace, and I appreciate they don't mind killing off people. Though, I would like to start seeing some Red Lantern Casualties.
 
The animation has its pros and cons.

The animation used helps them create alien world landscapes, constructs, ships, buildings, trees.

But the characters look like Bruce timm's action figures made from flexible rubber.

I have become used to it and don't find that distracting as the story, character development and action scenes are good plus they are slowly introducing GL mythos much better than the previous attempts.
 
Like everything, it has its good and bad, that is true; it's just not my preference. It hasn't grown on me yet, and I don't suspect it will, but like i said, the actual series itself has been really good. They are definitely introducing GL the right way.

The latest episode "...In Love and War" showed the planet Zamaron, home world of Star Sapphires, carol Ferris also gets the violet ring, Kilowog as usual finds himself in trouble again and it is left to Razer, Hal and Aaya to do the investigation and to rescue him.

Overall a good episode
 
It was neat to see Carol don her Star Sapphire ring, but I felt overcoming the fact that it was driving her a little crazy was too easy. Would have liked to see a struggle, or at the very least have her keep the ring. If the queen's niece is going to re-teach her people about 'love' maybe the ring will find its way back to Carol and we can get some more Star Sapphire in the show.

Not the perfect episode, but it was solid nonetheless. Next week should be a good one.
