Late breaking news!


After having thought I'd put "Season 2" of the Exnihil DCAU custom viewing order to bed, I starting fleshing out season 3... only to discover there was an additional episode which - thematically - completely does not work. To wit:

Terror in the Sky


As will be posted shortly, whereas Season 2 of the custom order had a sort of "monster" feel to it, Season 3 will be focused more on science. As such - although "Terror in the Sky" certainly is rooted in scientific goings-on - the overall feel of that ep is definitely more of a piece with the earlier arc.

As such, I think I'm going to do a bit of rejiggering and place this episode (with all of the winter elements) directly after "Christmas With the Joker" and then - to provide a slight gap between Kirk Langstrom-centric episodes - shift "Tyger, Tyger" to after "Day of the Samurai".

That still provides a nice "somber" mood for a series of eps before shifting to the comedy of "Joker's Favor" and - at the same time - also creates a beautiful transition from the full moon at the end of "Terror in the Sky" to the blazing sun at the beginning of "Day of the Samurai".


Trust me, it looks great.

(Even better... fire up your own copies and check out the "Ex-Order". It's pretty cool... your money back if you don't agree.)


So... that would take season 2 to 20 eps instead of 19, and make the whole thing look something like (read: "exactly like") this:
