Ep. 122 – STAS – In Brightest Day…

As announced on last week’s episode, the Good Brothers are mixing things up for the month of September, reviewing a month of Green Lantern episodes featured all across DC animation in honor of the Green Lantern’s 80th anniversary. Kicking off the month, the hosts are covering the first appearance of the Green Lantern in the DCAU with Superman: The Animated Series episode “In Brightest Day…” which features fan-favorite Kyle Rayner. Cal and Liam discuss the episode in detail, including how it feels like a backdoor pilot for an unfulfilled Green Lantern animated spin-off, the soaring and memorable GL theme used throughout, whether or not this would’ve been better served in two parts and their thoughts on the DCAU GL uniforms. Plus, they discuss the mashup origin given this Kyle Rayner, the myriad of Easter Eggs, and whether or not this episode makes an actual lasting impact on the DCAU based on how the GL character evolves.  The hosts also preview which GL will be featured on next week’s all-new DCAU Review!

Ep. 111 – STAS – The Main Man Part I & II

As the Good Brothers continue their June reviews of the Man of Steel they come upon one of the series-defining episodes of Superman; The Animated Series  when Lobo makes his first animated appearance ever in the DCAU in the episodes “The Main Man Part 1 & 2.” Cal and Liam discuss how monumental it was at the time for this adult character that started out as a riff on 90’s gritty comics to appear on a children’s cartoon and then begin discussing the ins and out of the plot that at times feels right out of a Looney Toons cartoon. The hosts also discuss the myriad of interesting visuals on The Preserver’s ship, including one important background cameo that would be a storyline thread in another DCAU show. The guys also talk about the great soundtrack and the uniqueness that adds to the Lobo character itself as well as the iconic voice performance from  Brad Garrett and an early appearance from another voice actor that would go on to play an important baddie on Batman Beyond. All of this, a full scorecard and much more await you on this week’s DCAU Review

Ep. 95 – Elseworlds – Superman: Red Son

 

RedsonAs the month of February draws to a close, our hosts are leaving the DCAU and kicking off our second annual Elseworlds month. This time the Good Brothers will be doing all Elseworlds Superman tales, and kicking things off with the brand new Superman: Red Son movie by Warner Brothers Animation, with executive producer Bruce Timm. There are plenty of ties to the DCAU as you’ll hear as the hosts break down some of the differences between the movie and source material, why some of the changes may work, while others leave character motivations questionable at best and why the complete changes left one host particularly sour. Additionally, the hosts discuss the beautiful animation, a well-executed Russian-sounding soundtrack, non-Russian actors speaking the length of the film in Russian accents, an exciting DCAU voice cameo and a recommendation for the listeners on whether to check out this film or not! A full scorecard and a preview of the next Elseworlds episode await on this week’s episode of the DCAU Review!
