I'm just now noticing how often it seems that Supes and Hawkgirl got teamed up in Season 1.

hmmmm...Secret Origins, In Blackest Night, The Savage Time...is that it? I think Flash is partnered with GL more times than Hawkgirl is with Supes; they work off each other well because they're complete opposites, even more so than Hawkgirl and Superman

Yes you are right with GL and Flash... but what I've noticed outta season 1 so far is the following:

Supers & Hawkgirl

Batman & Wonder Woman

GL and Flash ... J'onn being the odd team member out floating from set to set.

One of my big complaints with Justice League is the fact that Wonder Woman never really had any strong relationship with any of the leaguers besides Batman. They had major potential to go into her strong friendship with Superman, or the warrior sisterhood with Hawkgirl, but none of that really appeared. Batman aside, as far as relationships went, she was just sort of "there."

yeah I think she was probably handled the weakest of the original seven; but she did develop a strong friendship with J'onn (beginning around "Tabula Rasa" continuing on to "Destroyer") and after Justice League she hated Hawkgirl (though I suppose hatred isn't really a relationship unless it's mutual) until "The Balance"

Just from what they've said in interviews, I kinda think that the DCAU production crew (Timm and the rest) didn't really understand her character as much as the rest.

Come to think of it, WW never really had a deep character-defining storyline, did she? Batman and Superman each had an entire animated series prior, Superman had Twilight and several deeper storylines in JLU, John and Hawkgirl had Starcrossed, Flash had that Speed force thing in Divided We Fall, and J'onn had a dozen or so episodes centered on him and his development.

that's true...she never had a character-defining moment, even in episodes where she was pulled off well like "The Savage Time". Still, the creators of the DCAU did her much better in the DC Universe movie bearing her name.

I just found out that Clancy Brown plays Mr. Krabs on Spongebob Squarepants. Hmm. Luthor has many similarities with Krabs, lol.

yeah that blew my mind almost as much as when I learned that Luke Skywalker voiced the Joker

btw are you guys (Mike and James) gonna review the ten-minute "Lost Episode" of Teen Titans or will it just get lip-service like the "Chase Me" short video?

WHAAT? I never knew there was such a thing. I don't think Teen Titans is in the DCAU, but I sure as hell won't complain, is this lost ep on youtube?

P.S. Catched up on Bigger on the Inside after yesterday, and right now I'm at WFP episode 32, and I only started like 4 days ago. Wish me luck! It's E-2 the show that has me screwed. I am at episode 12 out of 392. I know this should go under the E-2 the Show boards, but any highlights you guys recommend I skip to?

As a lover of the radio serial dramas, I'd also throw in the Power Record episodes and the more recent Doc Savage serials.
