I love the show so far. The only thing that I don't like as much is Diedrick Beider (and yeah, I probably misspelled his name) as Batman. I hear his Bat-voice and I see in my mind:

The "gravelly older man voice" is none other than R. Lee Ermey!

Just caught up on this show. Bloody hell, it's funny. I nearly hurt myself laughing at the World's Greatest Detective mug Red Tornado gave Bats (it's the little things in life, really it is). I like that there's something of a soft continuity between the episodes, with characters from one episode showing up in the teasers of another.

My only concern is that somebody might try to incorporate some of this into the DCU proper if it ends up being particularly successful. Much as I'm enjoying this show, I really wouldn't want to see "read my book" Aquaman show up anywhere else.

But, on its own, the show is a keeper.

Loved the NEW episode....

The sub-story outdid the GA/Bats Team-up.

Guy Gardner was hysterical! Id love to see a GLC cartoon stem from this show.

Today's ep was great! But boy are they making teen Black Lightning Static on the show. Wildcat was a hoot. Metamorpho seemed more shape shiftier than usual but that's probably just me. Haha lil Katana was funny in her almost completely silent role. Can't wait to see its comic coming up.

Next week's episode looks especially wild: Batman teams with Kamandi and Deadman? It looks like he's fighting monsters from the future and zombies!

It's too bad Kamandi looks like it'll just be an intro battle short. Hopefully we'll get a full episode...maybe with a few other guest stars traveling forward into the future with Bats like Blue Beetle and Red Tornado. The art on the Kamandi portion looks really nice.

R. Lee Emery IS Wildcat !!! Cool episode, and loved the B'wana Beast intro. Although I did notice both Wildcat and B'wana Beast had fangs!! What's up with that??

I dunno...I was always a bit particular to Dennis Farina's turn on JLU. Had just the right amount of grit and attitude.

Between R Lee's voice and how they wrote him and his dialogue, they got Wildcat pretty good...one of the better episodes.

The Outsiders were pretty cool. Wouldn't mind seeing them and Wildcat again.

I loved Batman's comments about B'Wana Beast's powers...."unbelievable gross too"...indeed.

I love how the teasers keep getting weirder and weirder.

Wildcat rocks! Maybe the next time we see him he will have the rest of the JSA with him!

That was pretty much my thought when I saw Black Lightning, he was just a mix between Static and BL. Plus they dropped Static Shock somewhere in the episode.
