The very first 1-hour episode was by far the best so far because it not only set the tone for the series, which is one of adventure with heart and intelligence and wit, but it also gave us a proper introduction to the characters involved (and also helped to remove some of the not-so-good taste left from the live-action film). The rest of the series thus far has been very distilled from the pages of Geoff Johns' work from the comics in regards to the introduction of various other groups of ring-bearers from other color spectrums. It gives us our primary foes The Red Lanterns (rage), and along the way, we meet violet (love) with the Star Sapphires and indigo (hope) with Saint Walker.Read more ›
Having watched the entire series, I would say it is extraordinary. The GL movie suffered from bad pacing and storytelling; the animated series excels at both. The design is good, the voice casting excellent. The story develops nicely as the episodes go by, and explores surprisingly sophisticated themes. Most of the action takes place on other worlds, but relates to conundrums faced by folks living on our world, in our century.
Each episode stands on its own, but is part of a strong story arc. Great care and design went into the series, and the characters are well developed as the season moves along. I found the series enchanting, and didn't want it to end. It has much the same innovative energy as the very first Star Wars movie, which I watched way back in the 1970s.
The elements that make Green Lantern: The Animated Series so effective mean that it can be enjoyed and appreciated both by adults and younger folks. The storylines and issues explored in the series are surprisingly adult.
