  • For anyone who woke up this morning looking forward to Green Lantern followed by Young Justice you got quite a surprise when you saw reruns of some dragon show and later found out online that CN has put DC Nation on hiatus until JANUARY 2013! Someone please tell me. What's the point of all this? You come back from almost the whole summer and CN gives us two new episodes, only to pull it off the air and show reruns of kids' stuff until the new year. Green Lantern I won't miss because I never watched it (they only made that show to cash in on the GL movie), but Young Justice is another story. What is it with CN and superhero cartoons? They did the same thing with Batman The Brave and The Bold. They put that show on countless hiatuses until they finally showed all the episodes. They're not even showing reruns until 2013. Does CN think these hiatuses will create more interest in these shows when they come back, because I can tell you from my vantage point, my patience and interest is wearing thin. If CN is going to treat their superhero shows with such a lack of respect, then why should I? How much longer do they think the fans of these shows are going to put up with this Chinese water torture. Here's three new episodes (drip, drip), catch our next new episode in six months (drip, drip), here's two more new episodes (drip, drip), see you in 2013 (drip, drip). It's like CN is embarrassed to have superhero shows on their lineup. If that's truly the case, then they should show all the new shows as quickly as possible, get them all over with, possibly in a marathon, and forget DC Nation ever happened. I'd much rather they do that then what they're doing now.

  • S02E10 is on itunes. I don't know how it ended up there or if they are releasing more on itunes but it does suck that they won't air again until Jan. . Sad

  • I've read reports that CN goes through swings of being either humor show heavy or action show heavy... and right now they're definitely humor heavy, and that CN's "move" whenever they secretly want to get rid of a show is that they'll put it on hiatus and bring it back somewhere down the road without announcing it's return date, so that when they finally show new episodes and the show's fans don't have a clue that it's on then CN can say "oh, look at the show's low ratings" and yank it. My question is, if CN has so much trouble committing to a show's entire run, why don't they order just 13 episodes of a show instead of 26? 26 episodes seems to be way too much to ask of CN these days, especially of a superhero show that has a plot and isn't about giggling fruit or kids characters that scream their lines at the screen in order to get your attention.
