Where to begin? Superman is finally back to his super-powered self, and the season opener pits him against his long-time nemesis Darkseid in an epic-yet-personal space opera. Green Lantern begins to get more imaginative with his energy ring, and Wonder Woman is less a powerhouse barbie and more a rounded character. Continuity has a heavy role this season, with plot threads from both season 1 and the prematurely cancelled Superman series finding continuation here.
The stories themselves are an interesting yet strong mix. You have your standard action stories, but also some downright creepy moments (Only a Dream, Wild Card) and others that are just randomly bizzare (Hereafter). A holiday-themed episode lightens the mood just before everything hits the fan with the season finale "Starcrossed," which if you've bought the previous dvd already know what it means for a certain Justice Leaguer. Overall there's definitely some stories fans will prefer more than others, but there's really not a dud in the bunch. It helps that strong character moments really hold everything together and give the stories a more personal edge. That and the tons of unexpected cameos and nods to the source material.
Animation is much improved over season 1, and the distracting CG elements are better implemented. It helps that the season is animated in true widescreen, and if Warner Bros.Read more ›
The quality of the stories increased as well. It starts off with Twilight, as the Justice League faces Darkseid and Brainiac(Ron Perlman and Corey Burton reprising their roles from the Superman cartoon).
In the center we have highlights such as Hereafter, in which the Justice League deals with the possibility that Superman is dead. Superman, however, is trapped in an apocolyptic future, with a former enemy now his only friend, ally, and hope of getting home.
A Better World is a 2-parter that helped set up the main storyline of the 4th season. It features the Justice League battling evil, alternate dimension versions of themselves, led by a ruthless dictator version of Superman you will love to hate. However the true highlight of the episode is an intense psychological faceoff between the two Batmen.Read more ›
Despite the colossal success of season one, the "Justice League" creators wisely went 'back to formula' on some elements from the show. Most notably, Superman's scaled back to his Superman: The Animated Series look, and the direction of George Newbern's vocal performances, both to much better results. The show's suspense and drama gets amped up several notches as the producers up the ante in terms of plot and character development, forcing the heroes to deal with issues of deep-rooted feelings of mistrust, insecurities, internal strife, affairs of the heart, and betrayal. These self-examinations of the heroes are just as engaging as watching them do battle in action scenes. Not to mention several surprise guest-appearances from classic DC Comics characters.
Just three months after the release of the first JL season set, Warner Home Video delivers the highly-anticipated Justice League - Season Two DVD on June 20th! This 4-disc (593 min.) set features all 26 episodes (multi-part arcs) from the second season; "Standard Version" Widescreen (1.78:1) video; English Dolby Surround audio; and English, Spanish, French subtitles. (Note: If you own all of the original JL volumes then you already have the Justice League - Season Two 3-part "Starcrossed" episodes, and should consider the remaining 23 episodes plus the exclusive EXTRAS on this set before deciding.Read more ›

They aren't cramming anything. 13, 20 min shows can happily be put on a 50GB disc at 15Mbps. Unless you're a videophile and want everything at 30+ Mbps. This is perfectly fine. The bonus features are in SD, which would waste nothing as well.

|Are cartoons really better in blu-ray?||
Yes, 1000x times yes. The shaky weird zigzaggy quality of the lines is really awful on the DVDs. The blurays fix this. Not to mention this bluray set is in widescreen, and also in 5.1 surround. Absolutely essential if you are a fan of this show.
