Crisis of Infinite Episodes - New Teen Titans: Stream of Consciences

Of the New Teen Titans shorts thus far, this one was a bit of a disappointment. The plot centered on figments of Beast Boys imagination trying to get him to eat cookies. The highlight was Silkie coming out of his ear. It wasn't bad, it just lacked the extra something special that the previous ones have offered.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Planet of the Neanderthals

This one opened strong with the Friends devastating an uprising of cavemen. And even though the idea of de-teching the Earth via time-traveling Washington monument makes little sense, this sure was a memorable outing. And that's not even considering the "Bat spider-web ejector."

So far, the Wonder Twins had tackled such adolescent perils as joy riding, vandalism, hitchhiking, and drag racing. Up next, preventing sharks attacks. What!?

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Safety (Bicycling)

Thats a pretty big "crack" in the sidewalk. I find it funny that in a bike safety video, there is no mention of helmets. Maybe they didn't have them back then, but a wearing a helmet would probably do a lot more for safety than cracking down on double riders.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Enforcer

Had someone been watching Battlestar Galactica? Because I spied with my little eye, a Cylon. As it turns out, no. This episode actually predated 1978's BSG.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Health (Emergency Phone #s)

When was 9-1-1 started? Answer: 1968. 10 years later Wonder Woman was still recommending writing all the emergency numbers on your wall or calling the operator. Way to keep with the times. Just make sure to keep the number for the Wonder Twins wrist watch up there too.
