Re: Green Lantern Series

Okay. Maybe I have to go back and watch the episode again...I didn't really notice them and I watched after the original posts were made pointing them out.

Re: Green Lantern Series

My thoughts:

I definitely got an "Incredibles" vibe from the show.

Why was Carol monitoring Hal's flight in her office by herself? Surely there's a better way to do that.

I'd love to see Larfleeze.

I got really irritated at the characters for not going back and getting reinforcements.

So if thy stay in the "frontier" for a while I wonder if there's any chance to see other GL villians. I'd hate to see just Green Lanterns v. Red Lanterns every week.

Re: Green Lantern Series

Yeah, setting up the Red lanterns as the major protagonist is a little too close to the Jedi vs Sith thing in Clone Wars. Even the faction colors are similar.

Because creating CGI character models is expensive. That's one of the fundamental limitations of 3D computer animation as a technique -- it takes more time and money to create characters, even background characters, than in 2D animation. And since so little of the show is set on Earth, they didn't have much use for human character models other than Hal and Carol.


I got really irritated at the characters for not going back and getting reinforcements.
They were about to, but then Hal decided it was important to go after the probe before they lost it, and then the ship was damaged so they couldn't go back.

Jedi and Sith have faction colors?

Re: Green Lantern Series

The Sith have red lightsabers [General Grievous's trophy sabers notwithstanding, though he's not technically a Sith either AFAIK]. The Jedi don't.

Green lightsabers = Jedi; red = Sith. Mounds; Almond Joy.

Re: Green Lantern Series

I think it's a reach to call those "faction colors." And I'm pretty sure I've seen a fair number of blue lightsabers and the occasional purple one.

Anyway it's been standard for ages to associate red with violence and evil, because of blood and fire and stuff. Whereas green and blue have more positive connotations -- grass, trees, water, clear skies, nice wholesome life-affirming stuff. So it's not like Star Wars has any particular claim on the custom.

No, it's not intrinsic to Star Wars of course.

Re: Green Lantern Series

I thought they established what each color of sabers ment.

blue = knight
green = guardian
yellow = ?

and of course mace's purple for somereason got a special colored saber.

Re: Green Lantern Series

Can you cite a source for that? Obi-Wan always had a blue saber, regardless of rank, IIRC.

Re: Green Lantern Series

^And if you go into the expanded universe, or at least the video game Jedi Academy, there's a whole rainbow of colors for lightsabers.
EDIT: Just found a list of a bunch of the colors that have been seen so far.

Now, Stacey, a.k.a. Pink Five, found the color dial, and made hers pink.

Re: Green Lantern Series

Yes, Stacey is special circumstances, not an official tie-in. I just think the color dial is pretty funny is all.
