It's never too early in the morning to start nerding.

In all the travel/holiday kerfluffle I completely missed the premiere episodes of Young Justice. So I watched it this morning. Here are my thoughts:

The animation is very pretty; gorgeous, even. Everything's pretty high-tech, almost futuristic, but they haven't messed with the costumes. I know from the Internet News back in the day that Robin is supposed to be Dick Grayson, never mind that this is YOUNG JUSTICE, okay, and Superboy's in it. That just seems wrong. I'm hoping he'll step up to the important job of SB's bff in Timmy's absence, though. Anyway, Dick dresses like Timmy (in the red, ohnoesmybffSuperboykickedthebucket costume, no less) and he's got Tim's tech savvy, but if anything his personality reminds me of Jay. Less Dick Grayson goofball and more smirking self-satisfaction to the point that I want to ruffle his hair and coo, just to annoy him. ALTERNATE UNIVERSES ARE FUN! But whatev, I can deal. This is nothing new, after all. I was raised on DC animated.

They did this thing twice where Robin laughed, and it was all echoey-in-the-shadows and CREEPY. It was kinda weird. Also, the one time we see Dick in civvies he's wearing these ohyeahI'msocool shades that completely cover his eyes. ...Dorkface. ^_^

Meanwhile, I keep finding myself distracted by how Superboy is SMOKING HOT. And YES, I KNOW, TEENAGER. SHUT UP. ...Actually, it's much worse than that. He's only sixteen months old. DX

Anyway... new show! This should be fun. In other news, I'm going to have 'Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury' stuck in my head for the rest of my life. THANKS A LOT, DAR.

...Passion Pit concert tonight!
