Screen Grabs


The plot was ok but could have been light years better. It seemed as if they were trying to be too dramatic. It was a good idea to have Lex kidnap Aquaman but it would have been even better if they had showed this happen. The climax was a disappointment. Aquaman gave in too easily. If I were him I would not have listened to Superman and instead continue with my plans. Because this didn't happen the story had a somewhat screwy ending.

Miguel Ferrer did a great job doing Aquaman's voice. It was one of the few highlights of the show. Another highlight was when Jimmy was driving Lois's car around a parking lot looking for a parking space while Lois was sneaking around. This scene was amusing. Here is a quote of Jimmy and Lois talking on cell phones, "But I only have a learner's permit. I'm not supposed to be driving alone." Lois replied "Hang in there kid." I thought that it was too easy for Lois to find where Lex was hiding Aquaman. Why didn't the security find her sooner!?! They could have had them find her making her run from them and then have her find Aquaman. Just walking and finding him was too easy.

The animation was so jerky and horrid I could barely stand it. Most of the time the facial features on every character floated around and just didn't look right. It has got to be the worst animation ever on BTAS or STAS. They should have spent more money on it. If the animation were better this episode would have been lots better.
