It was a great show while it lasted and will be missed.

This was a great show, up there with the Bruce Timm stuff.

I think that because it was such an "adult" show, more plot driven rather than just action & fart jokes, it didn't garner an audiance in a youth oriented line-up.

If they ran it at 7:00 PM it would have had legs.

I only watched the first few episodes and didn't think it was that great. I'll have to go grab a torrent of it and check it out again. Maybe I'll skip to the second season.

It had a plot and the toys didn't sell, that's what killed it.  

crunchy, it picked up bigtime.  Enough to rival JLU in my opinion.  Even Green Lantern turned into something worth watching.  

Oh well, at least they'll keep the Gumball!  blech

Why are they canceling it again? Because they want a more slapstick scticht? That's horse shit in my opinion. Last week was a really solid episode, good music, plot, etc. damn shame. Phone Post

The whole The Reach thing was annoying though. Good show but not kid friendly enough, imo. My 8yo doesn't like it, for example but he loves Teen Titans (which I hate).

I'll have to search for the original thread...but the informed speculation is that lack of toy sales killed it.

simple modern reality - If it can't sell lunch boxes & action figures then the producers don't want it.

You know what else is bullshit about the series ending.  The last 30 seconds of the show (no spoilers) left a cliffhanger for another season.  Since they knew the show wasn't going on they should have cut the very ending from the broadcast.

It got really good when it went to the invasion storyline, before that I just watched it on DVR when nothing else was on. It was all over the place, the Invasion story was really good after the 5 year jump... But they introduced so many new characters and shifted Robin to Nightwing, my 5 year old didnt understand it. Of course he only likes flash, superboy and I finally got him on the nightwing fan club lol

Man, what a nutshot to good cartoons. What studio would risk making a quality show these days?

And that goddamn Teen Titans Go commercial. Fucking hell. Phone Post

Good ending. I'm kind of confused.

SPOILERS

Wouldn't Kid Flash's death kill off his grandson?

If it follows DC continuity (at least the old stuff I know about) then Impulse is related directly to Barry Allen who is Bart's grandfather.  Wally West is Barry's nephew by marraige.

Watched every episode and loved all of them. Were they all epic stories? No. Here's the thing though. WE buy the action figures for the kids, and lunch buckets and so on. Wouldn't it make sense to continue to do something that was working and *gasp* cater to the audience that has the income?

I know, right?  Even in animation Flash can't get no love.
