Intriguing start to the story - I'm interested to see where they go with this. The Q&A scene struck me as very strange, which leads me to wonder whether Superboy and Beast Boy were not actually saying/thinking those things but if those comments were made by Psimon instead (in order to influence M'gann). Was a little surprised by the designation slip-up regarding Superboy - hope that won't happen on the show. Delighted that Batgirl is very involved in this story. Overall, a promising start and I'm excited to read the resolution!

It's nice to see M'Gann's hair longer again, since I feel like that fits her better, especially as she tries to distance herself from her season 2 self :).

I wonder what happened to Conner and M'Gann on Mars. It seems like something happened that distanced them again and made them go back to a "just teammates" relationship. I guess they're still back to the "Will They or Won't They" members of the team :shrug:.

Man, Jonathan Lord is a player. Cheats on his first wife with Sandra Stanyon, then he cheats on Sandra after they get married. Feels a little...Harrison Ford-ish, I think? With Sandra as Carrie Fisher (although she and Ford never married). The love lives of celebrities :p.

I don't think they would have been able to talk about Lord and Sandra having sex on their TV show's living room couch in the old comic :sweat:.

Beast Boy can't talk in his animal form? I feel like that's consistent with how the show handled it, but it's a bit of a departure from how they usually handle his transformations. I wonder if that's just because he's still growing into them...

I wonder if getting stuck in the world of Hello Megan! is M'Gann's worst nightmare or her greatest dream :rolleyes2:?

Yeah, that part where Superboy showed up to push M'Gann on to ask questions felt really abrupt and out-of-nowhere, and I'm not sure if Beast Boy would have broken his cover so quickly like that :confused:.

Yeah, it was kind of weird that Sandra was talking so frankly about her (possible) sex life in front of a large audience but perhaps I’m a bit naive to find that unusual! And great point about Beast Boy - I wonder whether that was Psimon’s doing or whether Garfield is just that attention-seeking... I mean, he did hint that he wanted his own reality series back in “Bloodlines”...

I wonder if Psimon’s scheme will have major repercussions for season 3 - interested to see what rejecting the Hello Megan illusion will do to M’gann... And why is Superboy still mad at her? Was she the type to brain-blast others before they first met? That’s the kind of information that he could have gleaned from their visit to Mars...

It helps to imagine her as a Carrie Fisher stand-in ;).

Y'know, it would be kind of interesting to know what M'Gann's life on Mars was like since it seemed like she was really desperate or determined to go to Earth to get away from it.

I enjoyed it, but it feels like it was adapted from a story set earlier in the show's timeline. There are distinctly post-Invasion elements in it, but the main thrust could easily be from mid-Invasion.

In my opinion, I'm ready for Psimon to be offed. Always found the guy to be a nuisance, and you can only brain blast him so many times and he always comes back from it.

Ha, just a month and change after the season finale of Invasion.

Hmm, if they're stuck in Miss Martian's head, I wonder if Chapter 2 will delve into the Mars mission.

When her teammates get trapped in Psimon's psychic loop, will Batgirl be able to free them? Or will Miss Martian have to break the spell on her own?

FXX is now starting The Simpsons back at episode 1 for the first time since January, now we'll see if "Stark Raving Dad" will actually be skipped

*UPDATE: Yep, it's being skipped next Monday.
So... Universal Kids is really airing Totally Spies. This makes it the third network in the US to broadcast it. First was Fox/ABC Family, followed by Cartoon Network after ABC Family made it clear that they didn't want to air cartoons that weren't Jetix(or its prototype), and eventually family programming in general(outside of the holidays). I don't know how to feel.
One of the games on Camp Nick is kinda similar to Crystal Maze, which it will later then air on Nickelodeon in future
Me: Oh DARN. I can't believe I'm going to miss the LIVE premiere of Amphibia at 10 because of a stupid doctor's appointment!
*At 9:30, doctor's office calls*
Receptionist: Your appointment has been cancelled. You'll have to reschedule.
Me: :D *gleefully sings Hallelujah from Handel's Messiah*
Just noticed the MTV Movies & TV Awards will be airing on Nick at Nite, they add more networks to simulcast it every year.
