Just like Superman and Batman, Cal & Liam RETURN, this time with the 16th episode of the DCAU Review.

Topics discussed include the hit and miss aspects of this story’s execution of the “rogue Superman” storyline, Liam’s rage at an incredulous Lois Lane, and way too many references to a certain despised episode of Batman: The Animated Series.

Ep. 13 – STAS – Tools of The Trade & Father’s Day

Continuing with their theme episodes, Cal & Liam start on the road to Apokolips in this, their 13th episode.

While this episode deals more with what’s happening on Earth, it gives viewers a sneak peek at future mega-baddie Darkseid. The second reviewed episode, Father’s Day, introduces the audience to Darkseid’s son, Kalibak and give Cal & Liam a chance to discuss whether or not he’s a sympathetic character. The brothers discuss the normal categories as well as the #DumbKents, Darkseid’s cool heel bad guy, and a lack of musical themes for villains thus far compared to Batman: The Animated Series.

It’s a super-sized Episode 6 of The DCAU Review! Cal & Liam discuss a pair of Batman:The Animated Series episodes on opposite ends of the scale when it comes to their scorecards. First up they cover an almost-universally despised episode 6, The Underdwellers. A controversial plot leaves the guys feeling uncomfortable and desperate to clean their palates with another episode. They then jump into covering one of the highest-scoring episodes to date, episode 7 entitled P.O.V. – an homage to the old Max Fleischer Superman cartoons of the 1940s and a story that relies heavily on non-Batman characters. Fun, laughs, full score cards for each episode, PLUS Liam’s #CapeMovement Corner all on this week’s edition of the DCAU Review!
