    Damn, that was one hell of a premiere today. All expectations were surpassed and I know Weisman, Cook, and all took their jobs seriously by producing 2 top notch episodes and IMO already one of the better animation shows on today if not THE best cartoon currently on. If all episodes continue to be this good, this will easily top the 90's show...

    Anyway, let's discuss March 15th's episode...

    Natural Selection

    Watch the preview: www.kidswb.com/home

    Looks to be a lot darker then then the premiere and judging by the preview we have a serious treat on our hands.

    I really can't wait for this episode! We saw Connors using that needle on his arm and it was a creepy moment, so what's in store for us on march 16th is something even more creepier and eerie than that. By the looks of the preview, the Lizard and Spdiey fight at night, which, IMO, is the perfect time for the Lizard to be introduced. It just fits the tone of the character so much. I wonder if Billy and Martha will get caught up in the middle of the battle? :up:

    Hey, GG, it's on March 15th not the 16th.:cwink:

    The preview looks badass, and as does the Lizard. I'm wondering if this can surpass the wonderful quality of the premiere episodes, but I'm sure it can.

    Can't wait!

    Yeah, I think one of the creator guys said that it will get better and better each episode.

    I had confidence in Greg and the team, and I trust them even more now after seeing these episodes.

    Me to, ever since I heard them say they were taking stuff from the early days of the comics, I had high confidence in them. :up:

    Well they certainly set a task before themselves! Usually shows that get better with every episode start off on a "Meh" note and build up. Transformers Animated did this to an extent but seems to be in limbo now.

    I wonder if Lizzy is going to talk or just hiss and growl this time around. Hoping for some well-choreographed action scenes.

    I hope he talks. Im a little worn out of the "bestial" Lizard that seems to have been so prevalent since the McFarlane era...

    I think he'll talk. It just seems most likley since theey are staying true to the early days of the comics. I like Macfarlane's Lizard and I lvoed the first storyline in the series "Spider-Man" called Torment. However, the Ditko/Romita/Andry Lizard will always be my favorite. :up:

    Expect news on this episode or pics tomorrow. That's what Enewsi.com and Comicscontinuum.com usually do when a new episode is going to air.

    I'm not 100% sure they will but it's happened when The Batman has a new episode, as well as LOS, and also last Monday when we were looking forward to the premiere.

    90% sure.

    The preview looks good. Galloway's character models seem to be best for monster type characters like Hellboy, Abe Sapien, and so on, and Lizard looks fine. The episode will have a bit on it's plate to top "Night of the Lizard", the 90's cartoon pilot that actually had BRILLIANT TMS animation. But it looks like it has a somewhat creepy tone and that is what Lizard needs. The 80's cartoons sometimes depicted him as a generic rogue who ordered lizards around but that's not the best way to handle things and most subsequent shows note the "beast" angle of things.

    Plus, this time the Lizard has been built up over two prior episodes, so it seems natural.

    Natural Selection synopsis.

    Peter Parker and Spider-Man both have to learn to own their choices when decisions made by Dr. Curt Connors transforms Pete's mentor into the Lizard.
