Young Justice

Anyone watch Young Justice?

I've been following it, and I'm always impressed with how well it's done. The graphics are good, the action scenes are choreographed well, the writing is good... each episode feels very high quality. Also, it has a strong serial feel to it. Many plots are spread across a few episodes, and some elements are ongoing. This lets it feel like the stories aren't crammed.

I've been a fan since the first episode. I have a few reservations about what happened between the end of Season 1 and the beginning of Season 2 (Last weekend's spieode), though.

I enjoy it a lot. And it's the last touch of pre-52-reboot DC characters that I still miss, like Captain Marvel.

I didn't like it at first--to cookie cutter. It's gotten better recently, though--it's now part of my weekly 2 hours of TV (Young Justice, Transformers: Prime, Iron Man Armored Adventures, Avengers, and usually a little bit of old Transformers or Batman).

The new DC Shorts running during commercial breaks are excellent, especially the Tiny Teen Titans.

The DC Shorts version of "Teen Titanic" was pretty funny.

Just watched the first two episodes of this "Invasion" season. Some questions:

(1) This season picks up five years after the first season ended?
(2) Beast Boy's powers are derived from a blood transfusion from Miss Martian? That's a whole new origin for him, isn't it? I still remember him from the Doom Patrol and Teen Titans days.
(3) Lagoon Boy? Where did he come from?

This series is set in an alternate universe sp they get to play around a bit.

I heard a tease for a new episode of Young Justice before today's new Green Lantern. My season pass for it showed nothing. After some searching, it looks like season 2 of the show is actually called Young Justice: Invasion.

I see Invasion mentioned above, but even then I didn't get what was going on.

It's kind of weird that season one went' right into season 2 the next week, and jumped 5 years.

But it was an interesting jump, and a pretty good show.

Also, "DC Nation"? What happened to the "DC Multiverse"? Did Marvel trademark the use of "Universe"?

I think DC Nation is just the monicker for the TV block on Cartoon Network, including the goofy shorts during commercials. I don't think it is meant to encompass the entire universe.

To answer the original question, love the show, watch it with the kids (8 & 10). Got them into the old Justice League and Unlimited series last year. Same high quality stories.

I'm enjoying it as it isn't dumbed down for kids.

The creator and writer of Young Justice is Greg Weisman, best known for creating the excellent Disney Gargoyles series that aired in the 90's. There are a lot of parallels between the two shows as both have (had) fairly complex story lines, character development and slightly darker tones.

There is also a tie-in comics boot series that tells alot of backstory that happens between episodes.

It's really good too.

Am I not noticing him, or has Aqualad not appeared in Season 2 yet?

I'm also surprised at how few Justice League members there are and how any members of Young ustice there are now. If memory serves, it's about 20 each.

I really like this show, and I am INFINITELY annoyed that I didn't catch the last two weeks because Cartoon Network changed the title and my SP didn't catch it. I'm used to this show disappearing for a few weeks at a stretch, so I didn't mind it for 2 weeks. The SP showed "no upcoming episodes." Completely randomly came upon this thread! Grrrr.

Thanks for the heads up, Hoffer. Off to the torrents...

EDIT: It's kind of a throw-back to the older Justice League show that changed to "Justice League: Unlimited" between seasons 2 and 3. Same thing happened to me then! Fool me twice... :-/

I accidently went to the Season Pass Alert forum here at TCF just after I realized the name change. I noticed that forum had a notice of the name change. I never, ever go into that forum, but I should go into it at least once a week. I had an issue with the show Psych earlier this year that I would have caught if I'd gone into that forum.

I ended up getting the first episode of this new season off usenet. Episode 2 is on multiple times throughout the week and I've already recorded and watched it.

Grr, I didn't catch the name change. I was wondering why I hadn't gotten an episode the last 2 weeks.

I only noticed because I saw a torrent for Season 2 episode 1 on tvtorrents.com last week. I figured Canada was already running Season 2 an cartoon Nework was holding off. When I saw the CN bug on the torrent, I searched and saw the name change and how it had broken the season pass.

I noticed because there was a new Green Lantern and no new Young Justice. Came here to confirm.

Yeah, 2 weeks in a row, I heard a promo for a new Young Justice while watching Green Lantern. Then nothing would record and I finally decided to put on my investigator hat.

I only noticed two weeks ago because I record this along with GL every saturday morning. I got a new GL episode and wondered why no Young Justice. I looked at the guide for the following saturday, noticed the name change, and set up the Invasion SP in time for the repeat on sunday morning.

My Comcast box has picked up everything, so either their guide data doesn't reflect the new name, or they use some other kind of logic.

Huh. I was wondering why my YJ and GL recordings from saturday morning were of some "how to train your dragon" show...

I'm bitter about the Thundercats reboot cancellation as well. It was great!

Technically it wasn't cancelled, but it might as well have been since no one is working on it. I agree it's a shame.

Yeah that sucks, especially since when the show comes back the air date will say those episodes will have already aired so it's likely the TiVo won't record them. The episodes were on iTunes, but were pulled.

FYI,

This past weeks episodes of 'Young Justice' and 'Green Lantern' (10-13-12) didn't air on broadcast tv but are available via magical means (sourced from iTunes most likely).
