The CW (ended 2008)
|I woke up to Lightning Lad's lighting blast at 9:58. But, I caught a glimpse of the ultra cute Dream Girl. I'd go gaga for her if I was on the Legion. Hehe|
|Stupid question... |
How did Brainy know to send holograms to the bridge to trick the Dark Circle? Wouldn't he have to know what Dream Girl was dreaming?
I liked this episode for the action and character moments. I felt for Dream Girl but at the same time i also imagined how LL's parents had felt all those years ago and also undoubtedly him and Mekt as well.
Sure she meant no harm all those years ago 'bending the truth' really but the damage was still done. She may be a sweet person but even if she was the nicest person in the whole galaxy some things just takes a longer time to forgive and not all people forgive easily.
While seeing both sides of this 'grudge' I was still glad LL finally let go and forgave her, trusted her for once, rescued her, apologised (or at least started to say it before they had to rush off but at least she knew what he was going to say) and then helped her disarm those explosives. Brainiac 5 was right, thay do make a good team when they finally had put the old things aside that is.
|This episode missed the best things about Dream Girl, her love triangle that involved Star Boy, the fact that all the male Legionaires go gaga for her (the second meaning of "dream" as in dreamy), and her mysterious personality (or "Miss Terious").|
I thought Lightning Lad was a jerk toward Dream Girl. Poor her. She seemed to be such a sweet Legionare. I thought the others, particularly Timber Wolf and Star Boy, were taking Dream Girl for granted. Not taking Brainy's lecture seriously because they had Dream Girl, that was so out of character for the two. It was touching in the end when Lightning Lad rescued Dream Girl and tried to apologize for his behavior. It was a good episode, but a bit too fast-paced in the end.
I thought she was ugly, but I'm straight, so my opinion of her looks doesn't really count. I didn't feel sorry for her, but it's already been decided a long time ago that Lightning Lad is a jerk, and I think he gets it from Cosmic Boy- in S1, he was alright, but in S2, CB became more prominent, LL hung out with him more, and now LL is a big fat jerk. Coincidence? I think not.
I did feel sorry for teh Brainy, though- no one pays that much attention to him, and there they were blatantly playing paper football instead of listening. Although, why did it take him so long to notice? I noticed it 10 minutes before the scene was shown. :/ (An expression, I don't want to hear it.) Seemed in character to me- 2 19 year olds (I guess, does anyone really know?) choosing to piddlefart around instead of paying attention to their instructor. XD I thought it was a nice change of pace from the usual "Grr! Bad guys! Let's get 'em!" Heh. "Yawn. Bad guys. She knows."
"That's angry wolf growl-"
"For end of the line, blah blah blah. Wasn't funny then, ain't funny now."
Aww, teh Brainish. *hug*
Brainy: *choking* Can't *ack!* breath *gasp* help!
Summary: Me likey. ^_^
|They still have paper football in the 31st century?|
|It's only a pity that they couldn't give her a handle that doesn't make her sound like a cheesy pin-up girl...she's a cute kid and all, but did she ever think of going with something like "Somnus" or "Morphia"?|
