While this is not my personal favorite version of Superman in terms of how the writers "weaken" him, this collection is a must for Superman fans. I appreciate being able to watch this series without commercial interruption. Happy watching!
All that said, it is still better than the other remasters. When Superman is onscreen it generally looks very good, maybe because they have to keep his colors balanced. And while I said his reds look a little off at times, it’s nowhere near as bad as the Batman remaster where the whole sky sometimes looks straight up pinkish red. It still feels mostly like how I watched it as a kid, whereas Batman TAS I had to stick with the dvds because the blu ray felt too different.
However, Bruce Timm, Paul Dini and Company were up to the task, making the excellent "Superman: The Animated Series" really enjoyable.
Superman is de-powered somewhat in this series, similar to what DC Comics was doing to the Man Of Steel at the end of the 20th Century, but it helps keeping the viewers involved in the Last Son of Krypton and his adventures, a brilliant idea that works with the show.
Overall, this Blu-ray set is safe for all ages to watch, with no objectionable content on any of the episodes, and it works as a bookend to the DC Animated Universe version of Batman.
Eventually I’d catch reruns of this show, still wasn’t the biggest fan of Superman. Other than the kryptonite, I liked a hero with more of a weakness to overcome, that didn’t seem invincible, and so on. Just as a kid I thought Superman was too powerful. It’s a weird thought, now.
I still enjoyed the show but in the back of my mind it was like: “you really like this Boy Scout if a hero? He isn’t brooding. He doesn’t make quips. He doesn’t even have a cool suit of armor.”
Somewhere along the way I became a fan of Superman, his comics or team ups where he showed up, it hooked me. I started to pick up some of his stories without him teaming up with others.
When I saw this cartoon, I was more than happy to give it another chance. I regret nothing, as a fan of Superman now, it’s so much better to me.
It arrived quickly, not faster than a speeding bullet. But it was rattling around. I watched this sooner than I planned to, because I had to make sure discs were going to play without skipping after their shopping care.
Definitely something that caught me by surprise, I thought they’d pack those styrofoam prices to secure the discs so they don’t bounce around.
Happy to say they played perfectly.
The DVD menu leaves a bit to be desired:
Pretty much give you a black screen, a small photo of Superman. Them telling you what disc, episode selection, mine allowed subtitles up until the last few episodes. The last dvd had a few bonus features. Still, I feel like they could’ve just put in the Superman crest or symbol/some kind of flashy or cheesy red and blue background.
Still.. Safe to say if they gave this a blu ray, release I’d buy it in a heartbeat as well.

But flash forward to now the show stands with the Great Animated Batman series and even crosses over with both shows .
Video quality 10 +
Every episode is captured here lovely restoration shows the colour pops and sound design is Steller lots of base for 5.1 surrounding sound .
The only down side is the special features not in the Blu-ray quality just bog standard dvd and Even less so . The audio commentary is the stand out for a few episodes reminds me of the Batman series .
Package is unfortunately a let down they made a great batman package I guess they ran out of time .
9/10 overall best superman since reeves .
The one issue is it is advertised as 16:9 aspect ratio, however it's actually 4:3 so has the thick black lines at either side of the screen and that was really disappointing.
I only had this on region 1 DVD so this is a serious upgrade that was worth getting overall.
Just unfortunate they didn't blu ray the set out as there is still the black lines. If it was really blu ray then they shouldn't be there unfortunately like The BAS just repackage the dvd to blu ray and don't update anything.
