The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 059): What Science Fiction Series Deserves the HBO 10-Episode-Per-Book Treatment?
Hey you poozers, the latest in the Warner Brothers / DC Animated movies, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, tells five stories from the Green Lantern Corps, the intergalactic police force based on the planet OA, who defend our universe one sector at a time. It features legendary Lanterns like Hal Jordan, Sinestro, Mogo, Abin Sur and Kilowog, this DVD details the history of the Corps, as written in the Book of OA, and told to the Corps newest recruit, Arisia. (This is a review of the single disc DVD edition of Green Lantern: Emerald Knights.)
Krona, OA’s greatest enemy, is reaching out from the Anti-Matter universe, to attack OA and the Corps. Arisia, a new recruit, is understandably nervous. She has only held the ring a few days, and never dreamed that her first days would be preparing for war. Hal Jordan, assigned to mentor her into the Corps, knows that he has to prepare her for what’s to come.

The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 051): Panel Discussion-What is the Best Space Opera Series in Science Fiction
A lot of DC Comics TV/Movie news that deserves a little attention.
First up: The Wonder Woman pilot was not picked up by NBC. After all the hype and the controversy surrounding the costume, NBC passed on the rebooted series by David E. Kelley. No details were released (that I could find) on why NBC passed, but there doesn’t seem to be a future for the series seeing as how all the other networks passed on the script (saying it was terrible) before NBC ordered a pilot.
So, for now at least, Diana will have to stay on Themyscira.
It’s time…time to settle, once and for all, which genre shows rule and which ones drool. Talk to the fans and you will always run into people who feel one show with a premise of x is so much better than that other show based on x.
