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.
Episode 12 of the DCAU Review is finally here! This week’s episode is the brothers’ first themed episode, featuring a Lex Luthor and Kryptonite theme! Cal & Liam review A Little Piece of Home which introduces the only known element in the universe that can kill Superman, Kryptonite and then following this, they review The Way of All Flesh which features the series debut of the Kryptonite powered adversary, Metallo. The boys discuss the difference between Clancy Brown’s subtle Luthor versus Michael McDowell’s John Corbin/Metallo, how to effectively make Superman vulnerable, and more extreme violence against cartoon robots! All of this, plus Metallo puns and #CapeMovement on this week’s episode!
Cal & Liam are back in their 11th edition of the DCAU Review! This week the boys take a break from the Caped Crusader and turn their attentions towards the Man of Steel. That’s right, the DCAU is about to get a whole lot bigger. In this episode you’ll hear a full review of the introduction of Superman and a major part of his supporting cast. Cal & Liam discuss whether they felt this episode does Kal-El’s origin justice, the new spin placed on some of his nemeses, and they even have time to discuss #CapeMovement, #HairMovement and even
#PantsMovement #JeansMovement! All of this and of course, a full scorecard!
