Ep. 123 – JL – Hearts and Minds Part I & II

Cal and Liam continue their month celebrating Green Lantern with Justice League‘s second season episode titled “Hearts and Minds” which reveals more about the DCAU’s GL Corps and about John Stewart’s past.

The hosts also dig into the most powerful music of the episode and discuss what the ultimate theme may or may not be. All of this, plus a preview for next week’s Elseworlds tale and much more on this episode of the DCAU Review!

Ep. 85 – JL – Comfort & Joy

Seasons Greetings from the DCAU Review! This week the Good Brothers get in the holiday spirit with their review of the Justice League episode “Comfort and Joy”, a rare 22-minute edition of the original Justice League series. However, the limited running time of the episode doesn’t mean the hosts are left without things to discuss as they cover appreciate for the overall feeling the episode brings, J’onn as Charlie Brown looking for the meaning of Christmas, George Newbern’s first Clark Kent portrayal, the DJ Rubba Duckie song and who one of our hosts thinks would’ve been the perfect cameo in the intergalactic bar fight. Can the boys deliver another entry into their “Top Picks” category? This might just be the Christmas miracle you’re looking for, in this week’s edition of the DCAU Review!
