Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Amethyst Princess of Gemworld: Level Six: The Final Boss

Its all been building to this, the showdown with Prince Topaz; and of course, Amy did it again. By now I have basically run out of compliments for these shorts and this one holds up with the rest. It is beautifully animated, full of heart, and I am just not ready for it to be over yet... luckily we were treated to an epilogue and so there is still one more final adventure to go.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Scorpio

Its only been a couple episodes since the friends battled insects - though last time it was the Friends who were bug sized. This time the bugs were the big ones. But seriously this was a retread that even featured a similar subplot of a giant tomato - at least this one didn't have teeth. And in case you didn't guess, Scorpio was a giant scorpion mastermind who resembled an alien (you know, from Aliens). This was another lousy effort, but at least the Scarlet Streak made a showing. I may have given it a pass if Scorpio had actually eaten Robin, but alas, no pass.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Three Wishes

And here we go with another genie episode. Running out of ideas, are we? Of course the wishes backfired. Luckily Superman had experience bottling genies even though the twins still had a wish to spare. They used the last wish to wish away the whole episode, unfortunately we were not given the same luxury.

Super History of Superman: Justice League: The New Frontier (2008)

Fresh off of his own solo film, Superman joined the line-up in DC's second in the modern line of direct to video movies in 2008s' Justice League: The New Frontier.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Outlaws Of Orion

Pretty tough to take an outlaw serious when his name is Stardust, even if he is a space cowboy. These old west themed episodes have been consistently disappointing even if they do allow for shoot outs with laser guns. This one was just pretty dull. By the way, making a law against keeping the law is quite the mind bending paradox.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Bizarro Classic

In 2012, animator Robb Pratt followed up his amazing tribute to the Golden Age in Superman Classic with a dash of the Silver Age by adding Bizarro to the mix. The result is simply amazing, I mean, it am horrible.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Revenge Of Bizarro

This is one I have been waiting for and it did not disappoint. Bizarro World had a horse riding a man, a junkyard full of treasure and a doppelganger Lois Lane and that was just the intro. By the time the dust settled I had been on a wild ride laced with red kryptonite and Bizarroized Super Friends. Octopusman was the highlight. This was thoroughly entertaining and one of the best of the season so far. Or as Bizarro would say, "Me am hate this!"
