Yeah, you know, in the entire run of Young Justice since the show began, I think this episode is the very bottom for me. I sure didn't care a lick about these kids in STAR Labs with active metagenes the Reach experimented on. They're not smart or interesting and the only things I found kind of neat was the Native American kid who's kind of an astral projection-powered revamp of Apache Chief, and the Beetles Reunion at the end.
Otherwise, a bunch of dumb kids with powers ran away from STAR Labs and ended up doing something heroic by helping Blue Beetle fight off Red Volcano. Totally by-the-numbers plot, with a reveal that Lex Luthor arranged everything to recruit these gullible kids into The Light.
Weirdest moment was the reporter at the end running up to Blue Beetle and asking him, "What's your nomme de guerre?" A phrasing no American reporter would ever ask.
Yeah, while Green Lantern and to a lot of extent with Clone Wars this week with Sidous officially telling Maul, his position has been filled, have been awesome. Young Justice showed that it has one too many plot lines going on and a lot of has to do with having uninteresting characters at the heart of them. The very ethnic group while thumps for trying it, is annoying as hell. I could care less for them and the giant reveal at the end. I was fairly pissed when YJ and GL got the hiatus which lead to the axe, I think in the long run, it may force YJ to just end these storylines now instead prolonging them.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
This was the second week in a row GL topped YJ... of course, Comcast's info on the GL episode completely gave away the plot point/twist that happened in the last 5 minutes of the episode. Silly Kabletown...
I did love every time the Volcano Bot said "MEATBAG."
One of the best 30 Rocks ever, just from the sheer novelty of what they were able to pull off (twice!). Vulture has a pretty thorough breakdown of the differences between the East Coast live show and the West Coast live show: http://nymag.
