I really enjoyed the show, kid friendly but not to the point of detracting for adults. Best of all, it's nice to see Hal not being portrayed as a brain dead, petulant child. I'm really excited for this series.

the constructs lacked imagination. it was mostly hammers and fists the whole time. and a drill here and there. but im sure that will change as the show progress.

i never liked the animation style from the beginning. it really lacks definition.

And i cant believe they used the father from that 70's show as a voice and didnt make him a red lantern. he famously played a guy named Red who was always angry lol . but i still enjoyed his part as a green lantern.

also i think i perfer the red lanterns as the mad dogs they are in the comics. the ball one would kiss atrocitus's ass too much and Razor seemed like he doesn't even deserve a ring.

I no this is a show and not a movie but I liked both First Flight and Emerald Warriors much better in pretty much every aspect

Really? You liked First Flight better than this? Because I don't know if you realize, but First Flight was a terrible, terrible movie. I see little to no redeeming qualities in First Flight, where there are many good points to GL:TAS. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on Emerald KNIGHTS because I haven't seen it (and it looked quite good), but First Flight was a crap storm in comparison to this episode.

I personally think the constructs will get better as the show goes along, the first episode didn't really call for more elaborate constructs.

As far as the constructs go, they may remain simple for merchandising purposes. Gotta think about the little kiddies.

I liked the show but agree with you on this. I have to keep reminding myself that this is a kids show though, so it's gonna have a different feel.

is going to be really late for his dinner with Carol.

Since the setting is somewhere back before she knows his identity (GL vol 2 #83), and even further back when he is still working for Ferris (GL vol 2 #49), it's very, very, very early in the GL's career. Expect juvenile behavior. Anticipate boxing gloves as constructs. A lot. Be thankful for Kilowog's hammers.

As to the spaceship, it solves certain artificial plot issues related to passengers who need an oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere to breathe and lack sustaining rings of their own, plus the contrived issue of distance from Oa and shortage of wormholes (which has never been a problem in the past).

Believability can be suspended for the duration of the run of the show based on these necessary premises. Or, to get less scientific, they're PG rated toons. They can charge their rings off the engines. They can be lost in space in frontier sectors that don't jive with the pattern of the universe as a whole. They regenerate in a single bound. Roll with it. It's fun.

On a scale of 1 to 10, give the premiere hour a 7. Enjoyed it a whole bunch.

The animation didn't bother as much as I thought it would. The story kept me interested and engaged. I'll continue to tune in.
