Well, it was getting slow until those last ten minutes. Certainly an eye-opener, this turned out to be a good episode and Geoff Johns can definitely tell a great story. And while the Hawkman/Hawkgirl situation seems to be wrapped up, the story looks to be far from over.
Unfortunately, it looks like it'll have to be, considering there are only two episodes remaining. If Bruce Timm DOES decide to go the direct-to-DVD route, he certainly has plenty of story fodder.
Good episode this week and I now have total faith in Johns' storytelling abilities, which is a good thing since Blade premieres in less than two months.
You know how comics will say that when they try out jokes on each other, they don't laugh? They'll say "oh, yeah, that's funny," appreciating the structure and payoff but not being tickled by it? That's what 30 Rock does for me.
