Default 'Justice League: Season One' - High-Def Digest Review

Kenneth has reviewed 'Justice League: Season One.' He says it's a little more open to criticism than later seasons. This Blu-ray has good video (albeit it again open for debate concerning the aspect ratio), underwhelming audio, and some nice supplements. This one is worth a look.

Full review here:

The movie rating is spot on. Justice League is gr8.

Although, I find the hate on Newbern is unwarranted, hell even Bruce Timm takes blame for this "passive" kind of Superman. This is fixed in later seasons.

No hate for Newbern, here! I didn't really enjoy the interpretation of the character, but I also know that the fault lies with the series' creators (Timm chief among them) rather than Newbern.

Sorry if I didn't make that clear enough in my write-up. Thanks as always for posting!

It's all good

I didn't mean you directly hating on Newbern, as I noticed that you said his performance "was limp compared to the second season," but I've always found Tim Daly got too much love by the fans, and that in general, fans did not appreciate Newbern's performance enough.

He was in Father of the Bride, man! Father of the Bride!

Great review!!!

Nice to see the set is worth a purchase. If I can nab the set cheap, I'll upgrade. I have the whole DCAU on DVD already. I'm looking forward to the really cool packaged Batman Animated coming soon on DVD. As I'll gladly buy multiple versions of Batman Animated.

Anyway, I really wished they included both versions(Widescreen and Foolscreen). Especially since they didn't make the special features HD. It seems they dropped the ball slightly on that. It could have been the definitive release.

Hopefully, the store near me will get it. It should be $25 or so from them.

The problem with Season Ones Superman wasn't Newbern. The problem was the creaters made Superman a wimp. They thought that in order to emphysis a threat they should have it beat up Superman and make you think "wow it beat up Superman it must be a tough threat" to a limited degree this can work but when used too much all it did was make Superman who should have been the leagues most powerful member its weakest. For example in the chase with deadshot an electronic charge knocks Superman out for most of the chase. Such a charge should not have done that much damage to the man of steel. Future Seasons would fix this problem. Season Two in an attempt to makeup for wimping up Superman in Season One made Superman more baddass then he ever has been. Hopefully that Season will be on Blu-Ray soon.

In later seasons Superman claimed to be "holding back" so as not to show up the other heroes. I think this was Timm's way of covering up Supermans lack of action in season 1.
Looks like I will once again be double dipping, as I must collect all comic book related media.

Bingo. With HDTV I thought this stupid shit was over. Besides the aspect ratio of almost all HDTV's now are naturally WS unless Warner is dumb enough to assume all or most of the people who bought this own early model HDTV CRT's.

Except with Justice League Season 1 the aspect ratio isn't so clearly define. Sure, the producers prefer it one way...but it was animated for another way.

So really, it goes either way.

I think it would have served them better to offer both versions on the same set. That way, it gives fans/collectors both versions.
