Talkback: Static Shock 12/6-12/9
Airs 10:30 PM (et/pt)
Sorry, I haven't logged here in a couple of days and noticed this week's talkback of Static Shock episodes has yet to be posted. Here's this weeks list, so view and review:
She-Back! (12/6) : She-Bang returns to Dakota to help out Static and Gear as does former metahuman foe Madelyn Spaulding, who now has new powers, as she seeks revenge against Static by breaking the Metabreed out of prison.
Out of Africa (12/7) : Anansi returns in this episode as the Dakota Museum's African exhibit bears the source of his powers of illusion, which is sought by his archenemy Osebo the Leopard, but in Sharon's possession as she tries to figure out its abilities.
Fallen Hero (12/8) : When Green Lantern goes on a rampage in Dakota, does Static have what it takes to bring down the superhero he admires most, or is something else going on?
Army of Darkness (12/9) : Ebon manipulates metahumans unable to go out in daylight in a plot to bring eternal night in Dakota. Can Static and Gear help them see the light (not literally) and defeat the real dark menace?
If Green Lantern is on a rampage, wouldn't you think that the Justice League would actually concern themselves with it with this episode?
Edit: Nevermind, it's pre Starcrossed.
Well seems to me that is is a nice character piece to establish a relationship between GL and Static. However, the fact that the League seemed not to notice his absence or masqueraded (I'd assume he suffered through this for a few days) is rather odd. Sinestro seems too cordial unlike his appearance in "The Secret Society", but in the end this is just decent.
Well GL did say that the other JLers were off on different missions. It was because he was alone that he was ambushed by Sinestro. The showdown at the end was excellent with the music was a nice touch. My overall score would be 8/10. As for the other episodes, I thought "She-Back!" could have been better since Static and Gear should have been more accepting of She-Bang's help. It seemed lame that they rejected her after Static said she could be part of the team in her previous appearance. Aside from the good vs. bad battle at the end (which also had a good music sequence), the better one was Madelyn taking out Ebon after their big ego clash. I score this a 7/10. As for "Out of Africa", it was good to see Anansi and Dr. Anoke again. And the end battle was just as good despite Anansi beginning to lose his powers. Sharon got more of the spotlight here and likely would have come out on top if only she remembered to wash the dishes. Pops busted her good there. My score here is 8/10.
Whole week was good, as I've already seen Tuesday and Thursday's episodes. GL episode was great, and so was She-BacK! A for the week
