DVD REVIEW: Green Lantern – Emerald Knights

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.

Diana & Chance Are Out, Hal & Arisia Are In

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.

To that end, here’s today’s Smackdown: Quantum Leap vs. Doctor Who

The Premise: Traveling through time, fixing little moments in history.

One of the coolest aspects of the whole digital revolution, is the fact that you can jump on Netflix and for less than $10 a month (I pay $7.99 for unlimited streaming), instantly stream all sorts of new and classic scifi television to your computer or TV.

I check every once in a while to see what new shows might be available and I was pleasantly surprised to see several favorites in the queue for instant streaming.

Check out these cool shows available to stream right now

Jericho was the little show with the big bang! The show centered on the small town of Jericho, Kansas, and the people there trying to pick up the pieces after a series of nuclear detonations take out the American government. The Green family are the central figures in the stories, from Mayor Johnston Green (played by Major Dad himself Gerald McRaney), his wife Gail (played by Pamela Reed) and their two sons Eric (Kenneth Mitchell) and Jake (Skeet Ulrich).

Over the course of two seasons (29 total episodes), the town of Jericho found themselves in all sorts of trouble including being at war with their sister-town New-Bern.

Although Jericho lasted only 2 seasons, it was a great ride.
