Hysterically Brilliant, 29 March 2005
Author: androidprincesst from United States

Hysterically Brilliant, to me anyway. It is in the same vein as the 60's Batman show/movie and Super Friends, but there was possibly less money put towards effects. If you ever wanted to see Sinestro in drag, Solomon Grundy in "disguise", Hawkman not flying or speaking, Adam West staring at Black Canary's butt, and Huntress adding nothing constructive to the plot, this show is for you. Get some popcorn, but no milk in case you laugh at the unintentional funny. But if you like well-made movies with complex interesting plot lines and fine acting, you might want to buy Citizen Kane or something because you won't enjoy this.
