Justice League Unlimited: The Complete Seasons 1&2 (DVD) (2-Pack)
In a world of extraterrestrial invasions, powerful sorcerers, vast shadowy conspiracies and ancient gods, the galaxy's most powerful superheroes return to battle the allied villains and criminal plots that endanger the universe. These heroes come home to roost in their high-tech Watchtower, sporting space-based energy weapons and a powered-up fleet of Javelin spaceships. The team members tap innovative matter-transporters that zip them from one location to another in a flash. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern continue to lead the universe's most powerful superheroes, including such well-known defenders as Supergirl, Green Arrow and the Atom as well as Booster Gold, Hawk & Dove, Elongated Man, Mister Miracle, Big Barda and Zatanna. These fearless fighters and many others are the Justice League Unlimited.]]>

Unlike the old "Super Friends", where it seemed none of our heroes could punch anything but a robot (Violence on TV, you know), JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED had a lot of fights, blood (which could only be shown on CARTOON NETWORK), and Superheroes who were not necessarily Superfriends.
In addition, JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED had extended arcs of episodes that were anything but kiddy fare. An Alternate Earth where Lex Luthor became president (and the WATCHMEN-like solution Superman comes up with). Secret government facilities dedicated to taking the Justice League out of commission with their own metahumans. Even the ultimate fate of Bruce Wayne was revealed(neatly tying into "Batman Beyond"). STAR WARS - THE CLONE WARS benefitted from the fact that viewers would watch multiple episodes of a story arc, instead of demanding "done in one" episodes. Even when JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED did a "done in one", chances are it would tie into a bigger story later on.
While not having the awesome color scheme of the original BATMAN - THE ANIMATED SERIES (never topped since), the series did showcase almost 70 years of heroes, from the A-List (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman), to the cult (The Question), to the obscure (The Shining Knight? That's obscure and a half). The series was obviously produced by people who love these guys.
Best of all, Amazon is offering a great price on this set. About a year ago, you were lucky to get just ONE of these DVD sets at the price Amazon is now charging. So clear your shelf and get this set. And don't forget to leave some room for the inevitable BATMAN THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD DVD set (no announcement yet, but here's hoping...)
Not only is the art work splendid and un-reliant on the popular Japanese style animation, but the writing and casting is simply great! It is so refreshing to watch an animation that does not rely on obscenities and profanity for "realism".In fact I find it difficult to find fault with the full story. I would have done a few things differently were I in charge of the production but they are so minor that I won't even bother to list them here. My only criticism is the manner in which the series ended. I won't give any details on any if the episodes only to avoid spoiling it for first time viewers, but I will tell you that you will not be disappointed with this series. There may be one or two that you may find not up to the standard that the producers have maintained throughout the series but even they will grow on you by the third viewing.
I want to be the first on Amazon to call for another episode to properly end the series for a new beginning. PLEASE LET'S PUT PREASURE ON THE CREW TO COME BACK AND GIVE US ONE MORE EPISODE.
This series is deffinately the standard to strive to beat.
I'm a long-time DC Comics fan and know the Justice League members and their adversaries quite well. Danielle knows most of the heroes and some of the villains. We both enjoy watching Justice League/Unlimited. What more is there to say about that?
The package includes every episode of the JLU series, plus commentary and special features. Nothing is omitted from the programs that originally aired.
If you're a Justice League (or DC Animated Universe) fan, Justice League Unlimited Seasons One and Two are must-have items. Highly recommended.
