Young Justice just keeps getting better! Shame they canceled it. I'm glad the Light is plotting a betrayal of the Reach.

I'm hoping that Lagaan dies but i doubt it with just 2 or 3 episodes left.. That guy is seriously annoying. He's just a douche and adds nothing at all to the show.

Both episodes were great. It is annoying seeing so many hints of things that could have come about in later seasons and knowing that those hints will never come to fruition.
Look on the bright side, there'll be yet another Batman show.

No doubt the execs correctly anticipated that a lot of people are excited about a new Batman show.

I'm not looking forward to it, though. And I'm even less excited about the new Teen Titans, despite the fact that I really enjoyed the previous show.

One of the things I've enjoyed about both GL and YJ is that they've been different. Too different and original to last, it seems. But what else is new?

Re: Young Justice, Green Lantern return January 5th

I'll probably checkout Beware the Batman because Bats is one of my favorite superheros, but if it were up to me we'd be getting a show with a character who hasn't had a solo animated series in the last 30 years, like Wonder Woman, or The Flash. Well, if were completely up to me, GL and YJ wouldn't be ending.
I understand Batman and Superman are their most popular characters, but it would be nice if they spread the love a little more.

I think it's been mentioned in this thread, but, I don't think it's about being to different and to original to last, but YJ and GL didn't sell enough toys. And that's ultimately why they are being cancelled.

I dunno-- is it any sillier than "Great Krypton!" or "Great Caesar's Ghost!"? Actually most curses are silly once you deconstruct them.

Now, the constant aquatic substitutions for standard expressions (especially ones that didn't make sense)-- that got old. "It'll be a piece of crab cake!"

Still, I guess he grew on me because between his goofy puffer-fish ability, his unimposing code name (what kind of name is "Lagoon Boy"??!!?) and his general attitude, I didn't expect much out of the character. I expected him to be the team joke, the lame-o who barely pulls his weight -- and it turned out he was pretty darn effective. Even if he's still a jerk.

Right, I read that. I wasn't exactly making a factual claim, so much as just venting, in the form of stereotypical nerd rage (in a manner that I'd hoped would have come through clearly enough to read).

However, in all seriousness, perhaps the shows being too off-beat had something to do with the toys not selling?

Or, more precisely, perhaps it was a combination of the shows' audiences simply not demanding the toys that were supplied, and of people who buy such toys not being interested in those shows in particular. I don't really know, because I never even saw the toys. It's a foregone conclusion that I wouldn't have bought them, unless they just happened to be some exquisitely crafted collectibles.

GL had toys beyond the Happy Meal ones? I was lucky enough to get a Razer--who hasn't appeared in any form beyond that. For my kids I had to scour ebay for JLU GL toys to get a Hal and company.

Maybe that's the point? Toy fail.

I don't think they even put them out to have a chance to fail. Thundercats, I can see why they canceled the show since those toys lingered on shelves for months and months. I never saw any GL product besides the happy meal toys and a kid book or two.

Granted, the well might've been poisoned by the live-action GL film toys also gathering dust on shelves.

If the product line couldn't even be launched they might have just decided the whole venture wasn't worth continuing regardless of the merits of the show itself.

Well, those were used in shows or comics that were sillier/cornier all around, so they didn't feel as jarring in that context. It's also just that Lagaan uses it so damn often, at the drop of a hat. Combined with the way Yuri Lowenthal delivers the line, it just makes me wince every time I hear it.
