I find it odd that so many reviews are so negitive...
I`m adding my two cents to the pile here, mostly because I find that, well, so many reviews here are so negitive on a great show.
I`ll address a few complaints I`ve read.
Lack of JL Characters: Yeah, the show is Young Justice, not Justice League. The focus is on the younger characters, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Superboy, ect. This is not Justice League Unlimited: Season Six.
Lack of Likeable Characters: Are we watching the same show? I find Aqualad, Kid Flash, Miss Martian and the bunch to be very likeable. Some are rough about the edges, and they all have faults, but that means they're like, well, people. Real People.
Joker: While having LT CMD Date voice Joker wouldn't be my first choice, I still liked his take on him. Yeah, it doesn't live up to the Joker we know and love from the DCAU, but it's no less valid than Joker from the 60's TV show. Or from Brave and the Bold.
The Light as Villain Sues
: Okay, I will admit this one is a bit true but I always figured they'd fall sooner or later, and Summit punched a BIG hole in their plans.
Still, I do have my own complaints. Rocker was very underused, appearing in the last two episodes of season one... Then getting Kicked Upstairs
. I dislike that Kid Flash and Superboy's power levels aren't higher, as per their comic counterparts, and that it seems that they'll never grow.
My biggest complaint is... Season Two.
Yeah, I will say Season Two is Awesome, raised the stakes and has brilliant writing... But they jammed in over half a dozen new people on the team, pulled over half the old team Out Of Focus
, and the Time Skip
I hate the Time Skip
. Not that they did it, but they made it a FIVE YEAR Time Skip
. Way too much time passed, way too much happened that we don't know about, way too many questions to answer.
Worst of all is outside Impulse and Blue Beetle none of the new characters got any real characterization. To be fair I had that complaint about JLU; a roster of forty heroes and aside from the original seven about, maybe, four or five got some real screen time.
Despite the flaws I do love the show, and I want to see how it goes. I doubt the production crew will be able to wrap it all up for the cancellation (Sadly) but I hope they release the notes for what Season Three would have been like.
Well, always Fan Fics
