The producers were requested to specifically not cast the Sinestro Corps, the classic archenemies of the Green Lanterns, but instead showcase other Corps within the show. The show featured Red Lanterns, Star Sapphires, Blue Lanterns, the Orange Lantern and homaged the Black Lanterns; the only other Lantern colors they did not feature are the Indigo Tribe and the White Lanterns.

So much better than the mediocre at best movie anyhow. While not one of my favourite animated shows, I found Green Lantern: The Animated Series very interesting. I didn't think the animation was that bad actually, it is simplistic of course but with the fluid colours and backgrounds they do have a slickness too. The only disappointment for me in this regard was the rather goofy character design of Zox. The music is very cool in its intro and is atmospherically haunting in the background scoring. The writing is superb, it is humorous and in a subtle way, intelligent and also has some thought-provoking depth. The premise showed some great promise, and it is more than lived up to in the exciting and very well-written story lines. The characters at least do engage, Hal Jordan does take some getting used to and the guardians' rather petty personalities may also leave some people cold, but the villains(while not on the same level as Sinestro) are fun and I like Ganphet, definitely the most likable of the guardians to me. The voice acting is brooding and dynamic in equal measure. In conclusion, I do love this show, it is not perfect but the potential was there and it has met that potential and I do hope it continues to do so. 9/10 Bethany Cox
