‘Green Lantern: The Animated Series’ – S01E08 – “Fear Itself”

You’d think that Hal could take his gloves off at meal time.

Here’s how “Fear Itself” is described:

With supplies running low, Hal and Kilowog search an uncharted planet for food and find themselves each stranded on different sides of the two warring species that live here. Meanwhile, Razer must recharge his power ring.

I look forward to your thoughts, opinions, gripes, live-blogging, etc.


  1. Obviously DC saw the critical and popular success that was Marvel’s Fear Itself event and are seeking to emulate.

    Is anyone else annoyed by the character of Razer? He just seems to contradict everything I know about red lanterns…

  2. That was a pretty weak episode. Maybe my least favorite so far. That plastic man short was also kinda lame.

  3. Pretty weak episode. Really too bad since I loved last weeks episode.

  4. So Sinestro/Yellow Lanterns for seasons Big Bad?

  5. I liked this episode! I’m not even a big Kilowog fan and yet I thought he was given a nice little story here. The series continues to borrow from the Star Trek playbook (this one was very ST: Voyager) and that’s more than okay, considering that a real Trek won’t be on TV again for the forseeable future. I liked the jellyfish aliens too, and thought the Aya / Razer story was compelling. Oh well. Two bionic thumbs up from me.

  6. The episode was very…filler. Nothing amazing happened, though it was mainly a KIlowag episode. I already liked Kilowag, and I think the best/most heartbreaking sequence in this episode was his nightmare of him with his family, and then not making it in time to save them.
    I like the character of Razer a lot, with him probably being my favorite character on the show. He’s probably also the most tragic. And yes, he’s different than the Red Lanterns in the comics, but it’s a different world where apparently Mogo, Saint Walker, and Iolande are outside the regular 3600 sectors.
    Excited for Star Sapphire next week!

  7. Pretty great episode. I love the stories where you think someone is the villain, but it turns out that your perspective (and that of the protagonists) is skewed. I also liked the sub-story of Razer’s relationship with…the ship’s computer/robot whose name I forget. I like how the Red Lantern oath is emotionally painful for Razer to say, but he doesn’t have a choice.

    Star Sapphire in next week’s show. The line they had her say makes me very interested.

  8. Yeah this show is pretty great. I like the stylized CGi of it, at first it was a bit of a shift but I think it fits perfectly with the tone, design of the show. Reminds me a lot of the original star trek series, especially in the minimal stylized bright colors of the designs, set, and characters!

  9. Yea….This show is amazing it’s right up there with Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, and Breaking Bad for me…LOVE IT! Bruce TImm is knocking it out of the park!
