General Roundup:
Not bad an episode.

We're introduced to the magical side of this 'verse (Earth-16, according to the DC Wikia), meeting some interesting characters and getting to see a drawn-out magical battle.

My only personal gripe is about how one of the magical characters (a favourite from the comics 'verse in not much more than a cameo appearance here) is written - but that gripe is so strong that it makes me wonder about the characterization of the magical "villain" of the episode. How different is it from the comics, I wonder. And am I less willing to accept the change of characterization for one because they're a favourite while the other is just someone I know in passing? The only thing I can really say for sure is that I didn't like how one was written even though I wasn't bothered by the other.

We also see what the members of the team that are present in the episode (one isn't) feel about magic, and how that may or may not have changed by the end. There's also a nice continuity nod to a habit that Kid Flash has been exhibiting in the other episodes.

The 'romance' plot continues to move forward slowly...and this episode puts an interesting touch on it.

In which there are a lot of lessons learned )

General Roundup:
Interesting episode. The team is slowly coming together.

Superboy is the focus here and while it seems like he may have only one gripe, it's a pretty valid one. His attitude doesn't help the situation the team find themselves in but at least he seems to see that - and want to change? - by the end of the episode.

We also get another appearance - and a spoken one, this time! :D - from a person important to the kids' further development. This person has lot to teach these kids about combat - and they'll also probably be important for Superboy's personal development. That has the potential to be a great.

We also get a hint at the arrival of the last member of the team! That should be fun to watch.

Continuing to the second half of the pilot. The characters are mostly referred by abbreviations of their hero names.

In which there are plenty of Fireworks indeed )

General Roundup:
This is an enjoyable episode.

The boys from the last episode get out of a predicament and form a team. They're introduced to another main character towards the end, one of the girls, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her and to the arrival of the second girl.

The villains of the day are defeated, but a larger more mysterious group is set up as well. That'll be the ongoing plot of the series, I suppose.
