More clips released.  Getting  a very Brave&Bold vibe from this.  Not crazy about Flash's new voice but liking most of the rest.

So, saw the first 4 episodes that act as the pilot...

The show is squarely aimed at the younger crowd.  Those of you without kids may not like it, though it's not as randomly silly as Teen Titans Go.  Characterization is much more simplified all the way around as are the plots.  Animation is mostly solid except for the opening of the 2nd episode where it seemed unusually choppy with a low frame rate or something. humor was a bit hit or miss with me, as was characterization: while I liked Martian Manhunter and Booster, Constantine was utterly cringeworthy (and not Matt Ryan).  Writing between the four episodes was also uneven, the 4th being the weakest of the lot  (also I noted that the 1st & last episodes were written by the same person, and were also my least favorites of the bunch).  Depending on who was writing it, Batman was either barely competent or closer to the Dark Knight Detective.  Some more consistency would be nice.

Overall, I think young kids will like it, but production value is good, it may not click with older audiences.

And if you like Constantine at all, avoid that episode 4.

Well, that's rather disappointing, but not terribly surprising.

Completely forgot about this show.

Just saw it show up on SB and like GG just watched the first 4 episodes before bed and I gotta say, I think my opinion may differ slightly, but it might be a little more positive.  Possibly.

Yeah...it's got its charming moments, and the better voice actor quality is something....but the writing is just mediocre at best from the episodes I've caught.  It's fine, but the pathos and glory of the original series is just absent.

I've been watching it. Canada (along with the U.K. and Poland) airs some of the episodes earlier than the U.S., so it's possible I've seen some episodes that others here haven't (such as "Repulse") It's ok, not great, certainly not as rich and satisfying as Justice League Unlimited, but it's a decent distraction and in Canada it airs alongside several other superhero cartoons so for me it's basically one part of a marathon. The voice acting for the characters is pretty good (especially Conroy as Batman and Hamill as Joker, and I agree that Superman sounds similar to Tim Daily) And the fight scenes are pretty good. The opening 4 episodes did indeed have continuity and then after that it seems to have become just done-in-ones.

One notable complaint I have is James Woods as Luthor. Ironically, I said I was expecting him to be good in the role when the cast was announced. He was good as Owlman in JL: Crisis on Two Earths, but here, as Luthor, he sounds a little too nasally/lisp-y and the acting isn't the greatest (he's also played a bit more comically than a lot of other great takes on the character). It definitely had me wishing Clancy Brown was doing it again.

Clancy Brown IS Lex Luthor, every bit as much as Conroy and Hamill are their respective characters.

I actually prefer the Young Justice version of Luthor to even the Justice League one, although it was more characterization than voice acting.

Beside, him coming back to voice Luthor would make it less likely for him to show up on The Flash again, and I really liked his version of General Eisling.

Considering Mark Hamill's in the show as Joker AND Swamp Thing, I kinda doubt it would be an issue.

Playing two different voices for the same show in the same studio is a bit different than playing  a voice in one place and showing up in person somewhere in a different country.  That being said, people can show up on multiple shows if their schedule allows.  I just said it was less likely.

I think you misunderstood me. What I was getting at was the fact that Hamill also has appeared multiple times on The Flash in addition to the new Star Wars.
