This series is a visual delight on blu ray. The stories are interesting to fans of all ages. My wife and I enjoy them, our son and daughter-in-law enjoy them, and our grand-daughter enjoys them. To find entertainment like that to apply to one sitting of three generations is priceless.
The stories themselves are quite captivating, and when they come as a series of connected episodes, you'll have a hard time breaking in the middle of the sequence. There are quite a variety of superheroes spread amongst the episodes, and although you'll see the "name" heroes most often, there are always some interesting minor heroes sprinkled in ... either in combination with the big names, or sometimes featured in their own stories. You'll also find that not all of the heroes "get along". Rivalries and disputes are common, and add even more depth to the episodes.
If you were/are a DC Comics fan, or wish to become one, you can buy this set of Blu ray discs with confidence.
For those of you who have not watched the Justice League series before here is a brief glimpse off all that you have missed. Justice League season one shows the creation of the Justice League with Batman, Superman, Wonder-woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Hawk-girl and Martian Manhunter. This season follows the characters as they learn to trust each other and work as a team. The league is challenged by alien invaders and the well known villains of earth who struggle to out do the League and unite against the joint forces of these powerful super heroes.
The disk starts out of the gate strong with an entertaining, three-part episode tracing the League's origin. Superman confronts an overwhelming alien power and soon realizes that he can't protect the world on his own anymore. The remaining episodes are generally well-written, certainly by animation standards, and then some. Some fans criticized the first season for presenting an all-too human Superman, who appeared to be getting his rear-end kicked at every turn (reminiscent of Superfriends' Superman: "oh no, this net must be made of some type of Kryptonite alloy!") Although it's understandable that writers wanted to give Superman some good challenges lest he dominate every battle, some fans - this one included - thought it went a bit far.
There are a few weak spots, namely "In Darkest Night" and "War World," (the weakest of all the episodes) but these can be dismissed as but minor aggravations. (And, on an interesting note, the featured villain in War World makes a comeback in Season 3's "For the Man who has Everything" - an episode which received some great reviews (and strongly based on the 1985 comic book Superman Annual #11).
The first season attempts to develop the bonds of friendship and note some of the awkward strains created when seven, very independent and powerful individuals team up together. Former Marine Jon Stewart (Green Lantern) routinely becomes aggravated with the younger and quite immature Wally West (Flash) and frequently questions the aggressive Hawkgirl's judgment and tactics. However, these tensions evaporate over the season, (and Jon and Hawkgirl develop a friendship that ultimately turns to romance in subsequent seasons). The King of Atlantis (Aquaman) makes an entrance, and he is anything but Superfriendly (The Enemy Below). Diana (Wonder Woman) learns about "man's world," trusting her team members, and makes a difficult choice that results in exile from her home world of Themyscria (Paradise Lost). "Injustice for All" features Lex Luthor's faltering attempts to fashion a league of villains against the JL, with Bruce Wayne (Batman) in rare form, nearly losing his life on two occasions. Some team members think he is trying to prove his mettle, dangerously so. And, if you look carefully, you'll see the beginnings of Bruce and Diana's growing affections for one another (The Brave and the Bold).
Each of stories are either two-part or three-part episodes, which I thought was a plus. Look for various heroes (and enemies) to appear later down the line in subsequent seasons.
