The producers were requested to specifically not cast the Sinestro Corps, the classic archenemies of the Green Lanterns, but instead showcase other Corps within the show. The show featured Red Lanterns, Star Sapphires, Blue Lanterns, the Orange Lantern and homaged the Black Lanterns; the only other Lantern colors they did not feature are the Indigo Tribe and the White Lanterns.

So, how is it that Warner Brothers produces massive piles of steaming crap whenever they try a live-action film version of their comics, BUT...
Their animated series are better than 99% of ANYTHING on television or at the movies (and yes, that includes the Marvel universe stuff, including "The Avengers", which I loved).
Seriously; my wife and I just finished binge-watching the "Green Lantern: The Animated Series", and we were absolutely blown away.
Why the hell doesn't Warner Brothers let Bruce Timm (producer) do all their live-action stuff?
The linked storyline of the two seasons - 26 episodes, total - was epic, exciting and completely satisfying. The scripts were excellent, the characterizations superb. If this had been a primetime show, I would never have missed a single episode.
Thank God for Netflix!
Seriously, if you're a fan of the superhero genre, or if you just like intelligent story lines, good dialogue from funny to moving (and beyond) and a seamless, fulfilling story arc telling a truly epic adventure, do not miss this gem.
It's not a diamond in the rough; it's a perfect emerald.
