    Yeah, their initial reaction was "Hey, this doesn't sound entirely evil!" Which is not an irrational initial reaction. Then before they had a chance to actually think about it, events overtook them.

    Which is too bad, really...it would have been nice to see them work it out. But let's face it, this show isn't really long on philosophical reflection. ;)

    The manifesto probably didn't mention that New America would be ruled by the Injustice League, or that seceding from the West and East Coast could trigger a civil war killing millions more.

    [ObOffTopic]Are there any books that address part of America seceding and dealing with a modern-era civil war?

    I recently rewatched My Boys, where Gaffigan played Andy Franklin for 4 seasons...he was good in that...

    I just that this is now on HBO Max. And the running times are 50+ minutes, so I guess that means it includes scenes that weren't shown on CW.

    It's extremely rare that I watch a CW series. The only one I've watched start to finish is Nikita, but with the casting this one has the potential to be my favorite CW series of all time. Part of the appeal of season one to me is it wasn't just a typical CW teen soap opera but featured a few older actors who I've heard of before and enjoyed in other things (Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Joel McHale). Jim Gaffigan only adds to that and takes it to another level. The younger cast did OK too and I like how the emphasis was on the superhero story and action rather than high school romance.

    Yes. The series was released on both DC Universe and CW. The DC Universe episodes, which are now on HBO Max, are slightly longer, but there’s nothing really in those extra that adds anything to the plot.
