    Ok...well...it was toned down somewhat. But still a great episode. We get to see the Corps, the Manhunters, and The Flash doing...well...what he does. We got to see the Javelin-7. Pretty cool little cruiser.

    Hawkgirl was her usual self. And we finally see Superman show some concern for the enemy when he rescues the spaceship after Hawkgirl's attack. True to his nature, Batman was "busy".

    Good starting point for next week, anyway. I wonder how it'll play out, seems like it'll get pretty intresting. Hopefully Batman'll make an appearance next week...

    I thought JL was supposed to be an hour long series!

    OK, here's what I think: GREEN LANTERN HAS BEEN BRAIN WASHED!

    that's my theory anyway

    Consider the point that this race has the power to take thoughts and display them on screens! Could they not also have powers to manipulate those thoughts? To put thoughts in the minds of people of events that never took place? I think GL is being manipulated, as is everybody involved in this trial. The question is, what is the motivation behind the manipulator?

    I loved this episode for one reason: G'nort!!! I never would have thought that G'nort would make an appearance on Justice League (though, it makes sense, he was a member during the JLI days)

    This episode was really good. I liked seeing Jon in plain clothes, and I really enjoyed the hanging around time in the Watchtower.

    I'm gonna watch this ep again soon, it was so good.

    Wow this was so much better than the pilot! We are finally getting a feel for the characters. We see Hawkgirl as this tough as nails cop. Jonn as this psychic dude. GL as a cosmic peacekeeper. And leaving the best for last we have Flash, as his own skirt chasing, hyperactive self. He is really starting to become my favorite character on the show, but I wonder what Plastic Man will be like when he comes on the show. Can't wait till next week.

So what do you see when you look at me, girlie-boy?"

    Two half hour episodes = 1 hour long story arc. That's what they meant when they said hour long series, that most eps would be 2 part arcs.

    I don't think that he is being brainwashed, or that the race trying him is engaged in skullduggery. Rather, I think that the Manhunters' arranged the destruction of the planet, to blame it on a GL. They did show some distinct animosity towards the Corp during the episode.

    The fact that the comic Manhunters were GL enemies kinda contributes.

    To be honest, I was disappointed. It was by no means horrible, but it didn't really inspire me to watch the next episode. I will, if just to see what those machine thingies are up to, but it wasn't much of a cliffhanger, if you ask me. >shrugs< I dunno, I'll wait for the second part before making a full judgement on the "episode" itself.

    Who else loved seeing John walk down the street in civilian clothing? He reminded me sort of like "Shaft." I ended up liking GL so much more after watching this episode. John had more character in this episode and I like seeing his friends around. Very nicely done.

    Awww, I want to see them air them in the same hour block!

    "Sort of like Shaft"

    All that was missing was the old theme music in the background...


    Seriously though, a very nice episode, which definitely had me wanting me more (even if I am an aging boomer who would have preferred Hal Jordan .. ok so sue me!)

    Did miss Bats in this one though!

    Wow, I thought "In Darkest Night" was a great episode! A terrific follow of the pilot.
    It was great seeing John in streetclothes, seeing people he knows. I guess he has no problem with people knowing he's the Green Lantern?
    Flash was great in this ep. He's horny, that's for sure. Hawkgirl's "Down boy" was classic! "Flash, take the controls. Does anyone care to ask if I know how!" Great lines.
    Superman was great too. He was the Superman I've been expecting. Not so powered down this ep, and he showed a greater leadership role.
    MM showed me a lot. Sure, the Manhunters kicked him around a bit, but the scene on the alien plant witht he ships attacking and the subsequent soldiers fighting the JL, he was great.
    Hawkgirl showed that maybe she needs to tone down her tactics a bit, at least in Superman's eyes.
    Superman: "Hawkgirl!"
    Hawkgirl: "What? Oh, that" hehe
    I'm very curious, and excited, to see the continuation.

    I almost...almost thought I'd see Kyle among the GL's waiting on the alien planet. Oh well.

    Also, did anyone notice when MM referred to Diana as "Wonder Woman"? I wonder when she decided to go by that instead of Diana?

    As usual, I loved the little things...

    Hawkgirl flirting with Flash.

    J'onn's bored look when he goes into action.

    The Guardians!!! They know something's going down.

    The Corps. Kilowog and that had to be Tomar-Tu or Tomar-Re

    OBSERVATIONS

    Superman's power level has INDEED increased. Look at him, effortlessly picking up a runaway spaceship, burning a huge hole in the wall with heat vision in 3 seconds flat...

    I guess that's it.
