Don't be driven away from this show by the botched 2011 adaptation of Green Lantern to the silver screen - the two entities are worlds apart. What we have in "Green Lantern: TAS" is a beautifully realized space adventure story which is deftly meshing over time with the engaging mythology found in the original GL comic books. The producers have made the smart decision of distancing Hal Jordan and his right-hand man Kilowog from Earth and placing them in combat with an enemy less familiar than the villainous Sinestro. The show follows their gradually expanding war against the Red Lanterns alongside new, intriguing characters with well-developed personalities and motivations. The animation deserves applause as well, aiming for the crisp and pleasing style of Pixar's "The Incredibles" without appearing completely cartoonish. Both long-time Green Lantern fans and newcomers to the Corps will easily find something they like in this series. Viewer age makes no difference as well - the show is family-friendly without being juvenile or overly violent. I believe "Green Lantern" will one day be remembered alongside classics such as "Batman: The Animated Series" (which, like "Green Lantern", was produced by Bruce Timm).

While I am not a huge fan of the computer-generated animated (I have heard it called clunky and I agree - reminds me of claymation), the writing is pretty good. Hal Jordan is a jerk, but that is what he is in the comics. The only thing is, and this regards marketing of GL animated, there is death and a lot of violence. Not for kids 5 years old and younger, probably ok for a 7 or 8 year old. But some episodes have lots and lots of fighting and shooting and usually death is alluded to or mentioned if not shown outright (like in the pilot).

When I heard that Bruce Timm was going to be producing a Green Lantern animated show I just about died I was so happy. After the announcements and eventual release of the live-action film that let so many fans and moviegoers down, I was ready for the dose of superhero storytelling that only Timm can deliver. That all came to a screeching halt when I found out the show was done with CGI. I kept telling myself that there was no way it would be as good as other shows in the Warner Bros. animation arsenal.

I was wrong.

This show is everything I could want in a Green Lantern television series. It has an original premise and rewrites some of the continuity of the comic book, but all of Timm's series took an original direction. I'm welcome to rewriting some of the history in order to make it fit better on another medium. I just think that the movie turned many fans away from it. I'm welcome to the changes that were made because the story was incredibly fun and really engaging.

The basic premise is that Hal Jordan and fellow Green Lantern Kilowog hijack a prototype spaceship in order to patrol the deep frontier zone of space. A group of Lantern killers are on the loose and might be more of a threat than the Guardians of the Universe are leading on. As Jordan and Kilowog investigate the mystery, they find a new enemy that no one was expecting -- the Red Lanterns!

This show does everything extremely well, and it gets the characters, tone, and energy right off the bat. I felt like I was watching a Green Lantern story that had deep thought put into it and a thorough understanding of what it means to be a Green Lantern and a hero. In fact I was surprised at how dark and mature the pilot was.

I am a big GL fan, from comics to TV to the film. Justice League animated series gave my generation John Stewart, a man who was brought up in a poor and unsafe environment who was chosen to wield the power of the Green Lantern Corps ring. He was a dark and serious role, like Batman, in the series. In my opinion, he was the most human out of the League. He was stern and always trying to do everything he could to end any threat to the team or wherever was threatened. Unlike Batman, who fights for justice, and Superman, who loses his ideals many times throughout the series, Joh Stewart focused on thinking smart and for the light. Even though John Stewart was a darker character, he always fought for the people.
Now on to this series, we have Hal Jordan and Kilowog. Two members of the Green Lantern Corps. Now the difference in Hal and John are that Hal is very playful and was the man who had a lot going for him (ie. a fighter pilot with the beautiful girl and was thrilled to be a member of GL Corps, not because of it being an honor, but because he knows it is cool), and John, whom like I mentioned before, had a dark past and fought for everyone to make sure they didn't have to deal with evil and pain.
This show is very funny and light-hearted in story as a whole and humor than Just League, however in the 3 episodes that have aired, they have addressed some really dark issues. These issues include: death, torture, pain, revenge, and hate. These things in kids television are hard to come across these past couple of years. This show addresses them in a very serious way, but not too serious for young kids. It is brilliantly targeted to older children to adults, so your toddlers are ok to watch this show.
