Wow, you guys really like Superman, huh?


This is a little unusual - I thought the Superman episode was pretty good and all, but now that it's aired, the response has been pretty dizzying. It got some nice write-ups at Wired, io9, Topless Robot, Newsarama and even the Onion's A.V. Club (although they listed Dana Delany as the voice of Lois (it's Sirena Irwin) and misspelled Mxyzptlk - how can you misspell Mxyzptlk?), as well as an overwhelmingly positive response in the usual places. Still, it's weird how they all seem to make grim note of the fact that the show's in its last season - let's focus on the positive, people!

If we knew how much everyone liked Superman, we would have... well, we would have done what we did, since we didn't have permission to use him until now. Anyways, there are a couple of folks working up some annotations - check 'em out! And yes, Michael Jelenic does know about a certain website, which did provide some inspiration for the story.

So I'm glad the show went over so well... I hope the rest of the season goes over half as well! And oh yeah, I guess Season One Part Two has been out on DVD for a couple weeks now, so go buy that if you haven't yet. And watch Bat-Mite this Friday at 6:30!

If people thought Dana Delany voiced Lois, it might be because this week, CN shrank the credits even more than usual. That, or I need to get my eyes checked ASAP.

Yeah, I get it about the credit shrinking - I just want to make sure the right actor gets credited. Internet rumours have a way of becoming fact if they're just left out there (like the one where the show is ending with Season 2).

It was masterful, Ben. A complete tour de force. Congratulations... and thank you.

It was a great and very fun episode. I really have been enjoying THE BRAVE AND BOLD. It is a show that just knows how to have fun!
