  • A Truly Epic and Underrated Masterpiece!

    First, let me say that I am not at all a Green Lantern fan. I've never read the comics, and the character has never appealed to me before. I am, however, a huge fan of Bruce Timm and the DCAU (DC Animated Universe). Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, and Justice League/Unlimited are my favorite animated shows of all time. BTAS, in particular, had a huge influence on me as I started watching it at a very early age as a child in the 90s.

    When I first heard about Green Lantern: The Animated Series, I wasn't interested at all. Then when I heard that Bruce Timm was the executive producer, I thought it might be worth a try. I forgot about the series for a time, until I stumbled upon it again on Amazon. They had the complete series on Blu-ray. I read a couple reviews, and on a whim I decided to purchase it. The price was excellent for getting the complete series on Blu-ray, but I was really just taking a chance because I had never viewed an episode or talked to anyone who had. That was possibly the best Blu-ray purchase I have ever made!

    This series is fantastic. I went into it pretty skeptical and not at all a Green Lantern fan. All I really knew about GL was from what I'd seen on JL/JLU. The writing and dialogue is very sharp, the plot is solid, the characters are fleshed out and well developed, the music is epic, the voice cast is incredible, and everything is really top notch! The cg animation and the designs are beautiful! I wasn't sure if I would really like the cg, but it really grows on you and I have really come to appreciate it.

    All this to say, if you haven't seen this yet, please give it a shot. I'm not certain but it seems like this show is underappreciated and I have no idea why. Maybe people simply don't know about it. If you like any of Bruce Timm's previous work, you will LOVE this show. Its maturity level and overall tone is right up there with the greats like BTAS, BB, and JL/JLU. This is seriously, one of the best animated series of all time!

  • A DC Animated classic

    This show is superb in nearly every way. The characters feel like real people, the romance is not only heartwarming, but at times it can be tragic. The stories this series is able to tell in only 22 minutes are marvelously written; each delivering the right amount of action and emotional weight, though some more than others. The voice acting assembly is grandiose, each characters puts in just the right amount! And don't even get me started on the soundtrack.

    It literally boggles my mind how fans cream over "Young Justice" and shun this show without a second thought. Not only does 'Green Lantern' topple that show in nearly everything, IT HAS HEART, something 'Young Justice' lacks, majorly. The CG might be off-putting at first glance, and I am convinced that may very well be the reason for the fan's lack of bolster for this series as oppose to it's DC Nation brethren.moreless
  • It was pretty good

    Too bad the show only lasted one season. I still felt it could have gone for one or two more, which proves CN does`nt know the right and wrong shows to cut early.
  • Just saw the stills for the new Teen Titans Go

    So I just saw the stills for the new Teen Titans go looks like they made it using microsoft paint. In any case with Clone Wars ending, Why not make DC nation a 2 time block and keep Young Justice and GL, while also adding Batman and Teen Titans. Young Justice and GL are good shows. i like how GL is introducing characters that are currently in the comics.
  • Why so popular?

    This show just doesn't deserve the appraise its getting.
