As last week’s crossover episode alluded to, the good brothers detail a very special crossover event in this week’s episode of the DCAU Review. As promised, episode 19 covers “World’s Finest”, aka the first official Batman/Superman interaction in the DCAU. On this week’s episode, the fellas talk the voice acting “Dream Team” assembled for this episode, some inconsistent and rather infuriating animation, how this episode still holds up under the pressure of nostalgia, plus the introduction of THREE new sound effects! All of this and your weekly episode scorecard!
Episode 18 of the DCAU Review features our first superhero crossover event as Liam & Cal cover Superman: The Animated Series episode Speed Demons. Hear the brothers discuss this incarnation of the Flash vs. the more well known and loved version featured in Justice League, “Weather Wizard” as a serious threat, and the exciting reveal of their own DCAU fan-theory!
Episode 15 of the DCAU Review find the brothers finishing their trip to Apokolips in this classic episode of Superman: The Animated Series. Cal and LIam discuss the first appearance of *gasp* blood, Superman as Jesus and the incredibly moving on screen death of a beloved supporting character. All of this plus the return of #CapeMovement and our overall episode scorecard!
Cal & Liam return for their 14th edition of the DCAU Review, this week reviewing an all-time favorite episode of Superman: The Animated Series entitled “The Late Mr. Kent.” In an episode unlike any before or after it, Superman must determine who murdered (or at least tried to) his alter-ego of Clark Kent and why? The brothers talk extensively as to why this episode is just so darn good, and they also discuss some real life social topics like capital punishment and how the underprivileged are treated by the justice system. Plus, an exciting first when it comes to their final scorecards! All of this streaming right here, right now!
Continuing with their theme episodes, Cal & Liam start on the road to Apokolips in this, their 13th episode. The brothers review Tools of the Trade, which lays the groundwork for some of the most intense episodes of Superman: The Animated Series, with the introduction of Jack Kirby’s Fourth World characters. While this episode deals more with what’s happening on Earth, it gives viewers a sneak peek at future mega-baddie Darkseid. The second reviewed episode, Father’s Day, introduces the audience to Darkseid’s son, Kalibak and give Cal & Liam a chance to discuss whether or not he’s a sympathetic character. The brothers discuss the normal categories as well as the #DumbKents, Darkseid’s cool heel bad guy, and a lack of musical themes for villains thus far compared to Batman: The Animated Series.
