I think this was one of the top episodes so far. The opening sequence with the Green Lantern Corps. was pretty standard as far as the openers go. It was neat to see the different Lanterns, and also Guy Gardner. They got his personality down pat. I also love how they even made fun of his bowl cut.lol The main story itself had some great moments in it, especially the initial prison break. Did anyone catch the 60's version of Mad Hatter as well as Louie the Lilac? I like how the relationship between Bats and Green Arrow was expanded upon from when we were introduced to them in the first episode. The knights outfit that Batman wore was pretty cool looking. It was fun to see the different arrows G.A had in his arsenal. I didnt really see all the fun humor in this episode like we've seen in the past ones. Outside the banter between Batman and Arrow, I really dont remember there being anything else. Merlin acted as the "comedy relief" I guess, always shaking his head and making quips when those 2 started on each other. Etrigan was a suprising character for this show. I didnt see anything really changed to make him "kiddie" or lesss of the angry demon he comes across as being.

This series is so freakin awesome!!!!!!!!!
Not a green lantern fan, but seeing a huge evil spongebob chase after Guy Gardner was hilarious.
The prison break scene was great. I've been on a Batman kick lately with a leaning towards the old 60's show, and all those cameos just made my day. I think I saw... King Tut, Egghead, Bookworm, Archer, Clock King, False Face, Felix Faust, Kiteman, Shame... Probably a ton others and some have said that some of the females were villains, I just couldn't recognize who they were. Hopefully some one will take a ton of screen captures of just that scene alone. Do you think we could talk Mattel into making a multifigure pack of generic prison goons but with headsculpts of those like King Tut or Egghead?
The main part of the ep though was really great to. When I told my friend that Batman teamed up with Green Arrow, Etrigan, and Merlin his exact words were "Imagine that". And that seems to be a kindof theme to this show. Loved Evil Dark Knight Batman, Batman and Green Arrow's competitive rivalry, their sword fight. I really liked Etrigan and hopefully he shows up again later. It was neat seeing Batman in all the Arthurian legend and stuff.
Looking forward to next week. I just hope they have good backstories for the outsiders. I just hope that since now they are teens that it doesn't mess with their established back stories to much. Seeing Bwana Beast will be cool to. DrGreenEvil

Cool episode. It was great that Guy Gardner finally made it into animation. Seeing the various GL's was cool.
I like this version of GA. I still prefer the JL version better, but this show provides an interesting dynamic between the two. This is old school GA, where he was basically a clone of Batman. Yet, he still is cool. I like it. Etrigan was well done. I thought all of the rhyming was annoying, but I'm not sure if that is more from the comics or not. I'm not too familiar with the character.
All of the villain cameos were great. I thought that was Louie the Lilac. I missed the Mad Hatter. I hope he makes a more substantive appearance in the future. He is too cool of a character to not be used.

Yeah, this episode was really great! The intro with Green Lantern was long awaited. though I would have rather it been Hal Jordan. Then when I saw Green Arrow was teaming up with Batman, I did a cartwheel. About time! I needed more than that first episode teaser!! But boy I was not dissapointed! I can not believe Merlin was in it and we were taken back in time, that made it ten times cooler. I loved when Morgan LeFay took over Batman just because of the awesome Knight suit he gets. Throughout the whole thing I was like "Yes Batman's the chosen and not Green Arrow", then after a while I was like "Dang it, Green Arrow is gonna be the chosen one". But I was happy and sad to see it was both of them. Happy because it was Batman, but sad because it was also GA, not just Batman.
Again, excellent episode!
"Who the hell are you?" "I'm Batman!!" "Don't Sware to God, Swear to Me!!"[My5:http://www.myspace.com/brucebatman3]
I do believe Etrigan talks in rhymes in the comics. Rhyming demon is a demon rank. But could sombody please tell me who Louie the Lilac is. Anyone else notice how the prison could not have been in Gotham. Gotham being on the East coast would not be driving distance from Star City which is on the West Coast.
Long Live the Corps!
