TV Review: Green Lantern: The Animated Series -- "Prisoner of Sinestro"
created 01/20/2013 - 3:27pm
In "Prisoner of Sinestro," our fave Fear Lantern is still working for Oa Inc. and Hal Jordan worships him like a puppy dog its master.
Thal radios The Interceptor in urgent need of extraction from a Spider Guild craft. In tow with Sinestro is a vicious entity known as a "mind jumper."
Sinestro was his snide self, even in the green, acting superior even to the loyal Jordan.
The soap opera thread of Red Lantern Razer and ship A.I. Aya continued as an important undercurrent here, and the toon makers could not have handled said thread better, as they did last week.
So suddenly Sinestro is blasting everyone on The Interceptor bridge, Razer is coming on to Aya, and Jordanis acting Jordan X-Treme!
The answer, of course, is the imprisoned mind jumper, which is having a field day hopping from Lantern to Lantern causing chaos.
Sinestro figures it out and rigs a trap which neatly causes Razer his life. Following up, Sinestro actually causes the mind jumper's death and then fabricates what happened to Hal & Crew.
At the end of this episode of Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Sinestro is still in the green, still lying and still acting superior. How much longer he remains there is anyone's guess.
The animators have some great moments here. So do the writer.
This production seems to be a labor of love to all concerned and the final video product shows that.
Another fine episode!
