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!

Image result for laughing fish title card

As we move through the month of November, Cal & Liam have been on a bit of a hot streak as of late, with multiple episodes landing in the coveted “Top Picks” section here at the DCAU Review. This week the Good Brothers look to add to that with a Joker tale adapted from two different comics and written and produced by the dynamic duo of Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. This week’s episode covering The Laughing Fish discusses how Paul Dini’s unique writing style is a perfect fit for a Joker story, how the ridiculousness of the Joker seeking a patent is, more light shed on the Joker and Harley relationship explored and several memorable performances in voice acting and why one of our hosts believes this is the PERFECT Joker showcase. Could this be yet another episode for the Top Picks sections? Find out on today’s all-new episode of the DCAU Review!

Ep. 80 – BTAS – Robin’s Reckoning Part I & II

Image result for robin's reckoning title card

In the 80th year of Batman’s existence, it’s only fitting that the 80th edition of the DCAU Review covers the origin story of one of the Caped Crusader’s greatest allies, the Boy Wonder, in the episode “Robin’s Reckoning.” The Good Brothers discuss the perfect storytelling of a pair of murders while keeping the episode kid-friendly, some of Loren Lester’s best work in Batman: The Animated Series as Robin, excellent shadow work and some inconsistencies in the animation, some insight into scenes cut for time and a soundtrack that accentuates the climatic ending of the episode. Could all of this praise lead to this episode joining the “Top Picks” category? Find out on this edition of the DCAU Review!

Ep. 77 – STAS – Heavy Metal

The month of October is nearly over and with that, it’s almost time for the Good Brothers to turn over a new leaf and change DCAU shows. However, our hosts have one last episode of Superman: The Animated Series in 2019 and it’s a fun one. This week’s episode entitled “Heavy Metal” is the direct sequel to the very first episode the boys covered this month. This week’s discussion includes a favorable plot for introducing someone capable of aiding Superman against Metallo, some memories of the introduction of the Steel character, a soundtrack with similar tones to one of the hosts’ favorites, the question of how a metal helmet can show expression and a preview for the show being covered in the month of November. All of this, plus Liam broadcasts from inside the Steel suit and Cal acts as if it’s completely normal…on today’s episode of the DCAU Review!
