The Doomsday Sanction

After a pitstop for last week’s 150th episode, The Good Brothers return to wrap up the month of Match with another entry into the Justice League Unlimited Cadmus story-arc with “The Doomsday Sanction.” Join the hosts as they discuss a plot that redeems an underutilized Doomsday, who was originally featured on the Justice League episode “A Better World.” Hear the hosts discuss whether or not the return of this major tentpole character was justified, the tendency of the series producers to subvert expectations with some important characters, why Dr. Milo’s return seemed a bit out of place,  why this episode could’ve flourished with a second part to it, and visuals that wow but are held back by the return of the terrible, no-good CGI. Plus a pair of musical cues that steal the show and another all-star voice cast that features some more fantastic work from multiple performers. All of this and a preview of next week’s episode on this week’s DCAU Review!

Ep. 127 – JLU – Kid Stuff

The World's Finest on Twitter: "The Justice League Unlimited episode “Kid  Stuff” debuted on this day (Aug. 14) back in 2004! Fun and pretty darn  adorable, the episode's got a cool concept,

This week’s episode continues a month of Justice League Unlimited reviews from the Good Brothers, covering the memorable “Kid Stuff.” The hosts compare the plot to previous episodes that were more kid-friendly and juxtapose this against the extremely heavy and adult themes featured in the Cadmus story-arc. Also discussed is the creepy Oedipus-like nature of the relationship between Morgan La Fey and Mordrid, a well-known child actor voicing Wonder Woman, dazzling visuals throughout, and a full education on the hammered dulcimer!

Ep. 125 – JLU – The Return

The final Saturday of September also wraps up the DCAU Review’s first ever Green Lantern month, and what better way to finish it than with the entire Green Lantern Corps featured on the Justice League Unlimited episode “The Return.” The Good Brothers discuss how they would’ve preferred the  plot of this one to be focused, what opportunities may have been hurt by the shorter episode run-time, the all-new look of the Corps, Liam’s head-canon on why Kilowog’s appearance changes again, and why a pair of voices may have a bit too recognizable. Plus, the hosts discuss the return of the Green Lantern theme, Lex Luthor always being the smartest guy in the room and Amazo as the DCAU’s Dr. Manhattan. Plus a sneak peek at which show they’ll be covering in October, all on this week’s new DCAU Review!

Ep. 102 – JLU – For The Man Who Has Everything

The Good Brothers are back as they continue reviewing episodes of Justice League Unlimited with this week’s episode “For the Man Who Has Everything.” Our hosts discuss the original comic written by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons on which the episode is based, why this episode was the perfect follow up to the pilot that expanded the Justice League roster, Eric Roberts perfect portrayal of the slimy Mongul, how this compares to another dream-sequence DCAU episode, some really mind-blowing Easter Eggs in both voice acting and music and why Mongul would be #Cancelled if he was living in 2020. All of this and something that has only occurred one other time in DCAU Review history on this week’s all-new episode!
