TV Review: Green Lantern: The Animated Series -- "Larfleeze"

Body

5819

Larfleeze, the most selfish and egotistical Orange Lantern-- in fact, the only Orange Lantern-- makes a spectacular computer animated debut in this self-titled episode of Green Lantern: The Animated Series.

Hal & Co.are, of course, still reeling from their loss, in a manner of speaking, of both a crew member and their spaceship's A.I.: both in the form of Aya.

A frustratingly hateful Guardian helps out with the latter, and the Interceptor heads into the outer cosmos to either rescue or stop the former.

What follows is a hysterical search for Larfleeze's battery and a lesson for Orange Lantern Hal as he is taught the lesson of avarice.

Larfleeze, like his fellow Lanterns, is characterized perfectly in this piece, almost seeming, as he does in the comic, part fearful, part pathetic. And no, you are not the only one who has compared Larfleeze to Golem of The Rings Trilogy.

It is indeed sad this cosmic gem is coming to an end. Often there have been weeks when the animated offering was more pleasing than the week's comic book offering. Sad.

Larfleeze is off to a title all his own in June's New 52. But don't miss his first appearance here, if you get the chance.

2014 DVDpackage anyone?
