    It wasn't given a chance to find an audience. Bruce Timm apparently called it the best show he ever worked with that nobody ever saw.

    That is an unfortunately accurate description for that show. It had a lot of potential that was never fulfilled. I do wish one HBO max executive see it and get the idea of trying to do a second season for it.

    Was there any specific reason why nobody ended up watching this series?

    I think it's fate was already sealed with the movie bombing/poor reception. It was one of those shows where it's success was determined by stuff like toy sales and it didn't have much to the toys/merchandise to begin with because of the '11 movie merchandise clogging up stores so WB didn't bother doing much for the show.

    I can't speak for others but the animation, at a glance or still image, looks cheap. Overly simplified designs based on block-shaped design theory does tell a lot of western audiences "this is for children" so it didn't help itself. You could argue BTAS does the same, but traditional animation translates that better than CGI, which if you don't have a lot of light sources and such can look very unappealing visually.

    For me, the show just didn't pop when I saw stills so I just kept putting off watching it until I eventually forgot about it. I hear lots of praise for it so I'm going to start a watch-through of it soon.

    I'm ashamed to say I've never seen an entire episode of GL:TAS.

    However it's now added to my list on HBOmax and I intend to remedy that this weekend!

    I've never been a big fan of CGI cartoons. Whether cheap or expensive, just never worked for me. By the 3rd episode I forgot all about it and loved every second of the show. Now I can't picture it any other way. If there was some realistic possibility for the show to get another season and it's traditional animation, I honestly would be disappointed about it.

    That's kind of what I've heard. It takes a few episodes to grow on you and then you're all-in.
