Warner Archive brings "Green Lantern: The Animated Series" to Blu-ray in a two-disc set. Another of DC Comics' Cartoon Network properties to get canceled before it even ramped up, the collection includes all 26 episodes. Its death was contributed to poor toy sales from the live-action movie, although I don't really know why that should've affected a completely separate television show. Fans of the Emerald Knight can now celebrate knowing they can watch it any time they want in the comfort of their own home.

"Green Lantern: The Animated Series" follows Hal Jordan as he assists the other Corps. members in keeping the Universe safe from the Red Lanterns and other cosmic adversaries. The rebellious Lantern teams up with fellow member Kilowog and take off into space to face danger head-on instead of waiting for it to strike. They're aided in their missions by the artificial intelligence and heart of their spacecraft, Aya.

The episodes are presented in a 1080p High-Definition 16x9 (1.78:1) video format and DTS-HD 2.0 sound. The video is clean and the colors are vibrant. The audio brings the CGI animation to life through bombastic sound effects, clear dialogue, and an admirable musical score.

Consumers will no doubt be disappointed in the lack of any special features for "Green Lantern: The Animated Series." I would imagine Warner didn't want to sink any more money into something that was already over with. It's a shame we didn't get any "Making of" featurettes or interviews with the voice cast or production crew.

"Green Lantern: The Animated Series" is a perfect example of an entertaining show dragged off the air way too soon. In the world of television, if there's not enough demand from audiences it doesn't matter how exceptional the program is. It's all about who's watching each week. If you never took the time to check out this series, now is a perfect opportunity.

"Green Lantern: The Animated Series" is available now on Blu-ray and as a Digital Download.
