Ep. 129 – JLU – Ultimatum

The Good Brothers are back again with another Justice League Unlimited review, this week covering another pivotal episode in the Cadmus-arc. “Ultimatum” features a lot of tributes and homages to older DC Comics animation and Cal & Liam discuss those along with the tragic loose ends from this episode, Aquaman’s characterization being a reference for Jason Mamoa’s portrayal, and Andrea Romano being ahead of the curve when it came to racial sensitivity and awareness in voice casting. Additionally, the hosts discuss the introduction of Amanda Waller, her perfect voice-casting, Maxwell Lord’s one and only DCAU appearance and speculation on just what happens to Long Shadow. Plus, a preview of next week’s much-demanded Elseworlds episode and much more on this week’s all-new DCAU Review!

The World's Finest on Twitter: "The Justice League Unlimited episode “Kid  Stuff” debuted on this day (Aug. 14) back in 2004! Fun and pretty darn  adorable, the episode's got a cool concept,

Ep. 125 – JLU – The Return

The final Saturday of September also wraps up the DCAU Review’s first ever Green Lantern month, and what better way to finish it than with the entire Green Lantern Corps featured on the Justice League Unlimited episode “The Return.” The Good Brothers discuss how they would’ve preferred the  plot of this one to be focused, what opportunities may have been hurt by the shorter episode run-time, the all-new look of the Corps, Liam’s head-canon on why Kilowog’s appearance changes again, and why a pair of voices may have a bit too recognizable. Plus, the hosts discuss the return of the Green Lantern theme, Lex Luthor always being the smartest guy in the room and Amazo as the DCAU’s Dr. Manhattan. Plus a sneak peek at which show they’ll be covering in October, all on this week’s new DCAU Review!

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.

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!
