    Agreed, the World's Funnest punchline wasn't worth that build up. I liked the Catwoman's Whip demonstration, but the stuntman here wasn't as convincing as the one in Penguin's Umbrella.

    Boy. Slightly less worse than last week. Ace's "That's trespassing line" was gold. Other than that, meh.

    I agree its wasn't great, but I give points for the mere appearance of Aquacow and Flaming Head Cow.

    Oh gosh, that Deadman short was pretty adorable. Hopefully they won't take too long to air the others.

    Uh, yeah... this Deadman short was cute. Reminded of some old school cartoon where the star had to rescue this baby that was crawling all over the city. Popeye maybe? Anyway, my favorite moment was when Deadman was in the overweight man's body and fell over from exhaustion. The taxi getting some airtime was pretty sweet.

    Oh... the Deadman short was far too cute. Loved the animation style and the oddly funky music.

    Let's hope they air the next two pretty soon.

    So what do we have next week? Doom Patrol?

    Interstitials - What, never going to ask "What would you do with B'Wana Beast's powers for a day?" lol. No one would know who that is.

    Metal Men - Most MM villains are obscure nowadays but Von Vroon and Nightmare Menace from Showcase #38 was an interesting choice. NM being confused and Von Vroon's last line was the highlight of the short. Hilarious stuff.

    Sucked both shorts were reruns (though if I guess a lot got to see the Superman 75 short) but I have to say I liked Bourassa's take on Metamorpho seen in the Biographies interstitial. Now I really want to see him in a DCU movie. :D

    A bit sad seeing the weapons test of the katana being tied to BTB.

    But... that Jimmy short was better than I thought. The role of Superman's Pal being totally exhausting was a hilarious gag. I think this was the best one out of the three so far. EDIT: That was the last Tales of Metropolis short.

    lol, these Deadman shorts are so cute and adorable. Guess something bad happens to the crow each short. I couldn't stop laughing after the woman ran from off screen bashed the crow with the basket then at the end he was back to normal but his beak was all messed up.

    Though, LAME that everything else was a rerun. And half an hour earlier. Daylight savings ends tomorrow and thus, another schedule shift for DC Nation. :/

    I like D.C. Nation going to 90 minutes, even if it was indirectly planned. Nonetheless, if Cartoon Network keeps D.C. Nation at 90 min., why not consider new animated versions of the comedic Plastic Man as well as Shazam to run with Teen Titans Go, perhaps on Saturdays, for the fans of comedic superheroes, but for the action aspect, a separate version of D.C. Nation(60 min.) to include a new version of Aquaman: King of the Seas to run with Beware the Batman on Sundays. It's a thought, but if CN had a different scheduled lineup on Sundays, compared to Saturdays, it'll be a chance to open the box and showcase different animated programs, during the weekend.
