However, they could really learn a lesson from Nickelodeon. The Last Airbender series is a key example, they broke those seasons up and released them with only 4 (and later 5 episodes per disc), but at least they included some basic extras. Those basic extras, 4-5 minute behind the scenes interviews and such, became much more in depth as the show gained popularity, including complete animatics, full episode commentaries, etc. Then in an effort to force fans to double dip later they would package all those releases together, extras included, and add even more new features (on one occassion four all new commentaries on the finale) while charging a much more reasonable price.
WB, with many of its animted series, seems to think this market is purely for children and just tosses out standard definition episodes as if they still cannot be attained any other way. This isn't the nineties or even the early 2000's, there is no justifiable reason to purchase episodes alone in low quality. With todays digital age these episodes can be bought digitally much cheaper or even found online for free in the same quality they broadcast.
Come on WB get your act together and put in at least a minimal amount of effort.Read more ›
If I were to rate the content rather than the studio greed, I would give this release four stars. The team is starting to gel and it feels as though the writers are getting a bit more comfortable with the characters, the personalities, and the interactions. There is still a bit of clumsiness here and there, and Kid Flash is still a bit too unlikeable for my taste, but you can definitely see some possibilities.
If you want to view the content now rather than wait, do what I did and rent it or stream it.
Unfortunately, in Season One Volume Two the show takes a downturn. I don't know how old the writers are, but they can't seem to see teenagers as anything other than petulant brats. For all the mentoring they have received at the hands of older, wiser heroes, the Young Justice group causes more problems than they solve just by their constant whining and temper tantrums.
Kid Flash in particular is poorly handled. Not only can do the writers not seem to understand his powers--he can run really fast but he can't dodge a punch? Since when can a Flash not dodge a punch? --but he is continually stuck in immature, girl-chaser mode. The Kon-El/Superman dynamic is a little more interesting, as Superman doesn't want to take responsibility for this illegal clone struck from his DNA. The two female characters, Miss Martian and Artemis, get to be the least of the "petulant brat syndrome," but they seem to really only be concerned about which boy on the team they are going to hook up with. I thought they were doing something interesting with the last DVD by taking Robin out of the leadership role, but I see know they were just taking turns.
The writers seriously need to change the way they are handling these characters. The rest of the series is so cool. Dr Fate's Tower! Klarion the Witch Boy! Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent going out to a cheap diner for pie!Read more ›
As for one of the other reviewers talking about what big babies the characters are, uhh, HELLO, that's kind of what the show is about. They're a bunch of kids. They're learning life lessons. What a concept. Their faults and how they overcome them are exactly what makes the show so worth watching.
