The Brave & the Bold

Finally...FINALLY I got to see the new "Brave & the Bold" show that had Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor in the beginning, and then Hal Jordan and Star Sapphire! It was of course...hilarious. Batman was just utterly dumbfounded that Diana would hang out with Steve, who spent the entire time being tied up to a missile and chattering away about how his Angel was going to save him. God, I miss Steve Trevor.

Then we had Bats and Hal. In a rather clever move, Ferris Air and Hal are the ones who test-drive Batman's latest technology, so to speak. Naturally this means that Hal spends most of his time blowing up expensive machinery...and LOVING IT! He's also naturally, quite cavalier in his treatment of Carol, who spends her time mooning around after him, and being mocked by a sloe-eyed woman reporter.

Oh, and there is the Star Sapphire, who is back to being picked by the Zamarons to be their evil queen. You are lead to believe that the bitchy reporter is Star Sapphire, but surprise! It really IS Carol all along, and Hal knows it, and is actually trying to protect her. Hal comes off as actually being responsible, and even tells Carol that he loves her...which is certainly a bit of a switch from the comic books. But it is fun,and it was nice to see Hal. Too bad there wasn't any Guy, but I suppose one can't have everything.

God, I love this show. Exactly WHY are they cancelling it?

Presumably to make way for something even better? Though what could be more awesome than this show, I can't imagine.

I don't think I can imagine something better then every crazy idea in over seven decades of comics all swirled together with the occasional musical number thrown in.

I know! It would be awfully hard to top this show, it is amazingly true to the comics, and hilarious and bizarre, and it's even gotten my husband hooked!

What would top this show is a spin off all about 70 years of comics not lead by Batman as the main character! But an alternating cast where a character can have the lime light without deferring to Batman.

The closest we have is when Batman come for the ride and doesn't make much of difference like Requiem Of A Speedster (where Professor Zoom got to kick Bats ass!)or the Aquaman episode where he's on vacation and Batman is the middle of pursuing Penguin while Aquaman keeps calling him while on vacation. As far as I Aquaman gets to team up with a lot of characters on vacation and Batman hardly makes a difference. I'm sure there's others, but why keep count most of the time Batman makes all of the difference because its his show.

I know people are attached to Batman (as he's DC's only success outside of comics sadly) and kids can't watch a show if it doesn't have a recurring main character, but what do you guys think?

Sounds good. Personally, being a Green Lantern fanatic, I'd love a series with ALL the GL's...but that's just me.

There's an Aquaman/Atom episode in a few weeks; can't wait! The way Aquaman befuddles Ryan Choi last time was hilarious. Batman aside, I think this show will go down in history for its inspired Aquaman portrayal -- Outrageous!

Aquaman really was the break-out star of this series. Heck, they could probably have a cartoon just with HIM!

I don't think they are cancelling it exactly. They're just ending it, rather than let it experience some slow decline. I'm not sure I agree with the decision, but I can see their logic.
