Even though the series is out of production, there are still two episodes yet to air in the States!
On May 6th, the episode Alive! will air at 9:30 central, and the following week at the same time will be the series finale Destroyer.
It breaks my heart to see it end, but these last episodes were great and the series has had an overall amazing run.
But lo! There are other Timm/Dini-verse events to discuss. First being a couple of upcoming DVD releases, on June 20th. Season 2 of Justice League will be released and, thanks to fan griping, it will be in the original widescreen. I'm excited to see which episodes will have commentary. I don't see how they could not comment on A Better World, but there were so many great episodes that season, it's hard to guess which other ones will likely get commentary.
Also on that day, the final volume of Superman:TAS will be released. There's a lot of great episodes here as well. A great deal of Supes's encounters with Apokolips were towards the end of the series. We also get an appearance of Aquaman, and Kyle Rayner. There's also on of my favourite episodes, Knight Time, where Superman has to stand in for Batman when Bruce Wayne goes missing. Lots of great moments from that one.
Speaking of Superman DVDs, June 20th is also the release of the Direct-to-Video Superman movie, "Brainiac Attacks." I know a lot of the reasoning behind this movie is to help promote Superman Returns for the big screen. But according to Timm, a big point in the movie is going to be Clark finally revealing to Lois that when he takes off his glasses he's actually Superman. My big questions about this movie will be how and if it fits into continuity. Perhaps Timm/Dini will enlighten us at some point.
And, if you care (because I know I do!) the first volume of Krypto the Superdog also comes out on June 20th.
We've got more action figures coming too! I am totally looking forward to the next 3 pack of Justice Lords with Flash, GL, and Martian Manhunter. The Green Lantern Corps is getting another 3 pack of Katma, Kyle, and Arkis (even though he died in the first minute of Hearts and Minds in Season 2, I guess.) Some other figures we haven't seen before: Vixen, Dr. Light, Etrigan, Zatanna, Shining Knight, Ray, and Huntress. I am already saving money to buy these things and have my mom look at me like I'm crazy.
So, there's a bunch of stuff you might like to know about. I'm gonna try to keep this thread really on JLU and the Timm/Dini-verse. I'll be doing nice beefy updates from time to time with "episode introspectives" whatever the fuck that means, and a closer look at different aspects of the universe and all kinds of crap that really probably only I care about. You'll just have to put up with it.
