  1. I have the series on DVD. But I would like different price on it for the blu-ray version. For the die-hard comic book geeks like me.

  2. I love Justice League. So I began to collect the whole series and decide to initiate with this release.

    In my case (I have a 36″ standard TV with a PS3) the extra cost wasn’t worth it.

    First of all I get a square letter box, I mean that in my TV it doesn’t display in a real full screen, although it should. So, all that I see is an image in the center of the screen about 3″ smaller that it should be.

    The sound isn’t impressive either. As other review stated: most use of the center and a few of the whole rest of speakers.

    Not really special features.

    For me, this is an average DVD and not worth the extra cost. Stick to the DVD and avoid the BD. That’s a shame, because I love this series.

  3. First, to address the “lack of widescreen” complainers – this season was originally formatted in full-frame. It later aired in widescreen on Cartoon Network because the company wanted them to match up with the later seasons that were formatted in widescreen. The end result was an image that chopped heads and legs off and looked very sloppy. Future releases for this series should include the episodes in widescreen, just like the original DVDs did.

    That being said, this was a nice start to the expansion of the DCAU, though it wasn’t without a few bumps in the road. Bruce Timm and the rest of the creative team have talked in interviews about their mistake of trying to de-power Superman and make him more vulnerable just to keep a level of suspense in each story. The side-effect, however, was that it made Superman look like a big wuss, so to speak. This was later rectified in later seasons of the show. Also, the Warworld episodes with Mongul were pretty bad and the team didn’t have a sense of good chemistry throughout the season, but considering that this is the first show to have all of these characters teamed up with each other, it fared well considering those circumstances.

    This is a great jumping-on point for fans of the DCAU that want to (but shouldn’t) skip the Batman and Superman animated series’. This show only got better as the years went on.

  4. I should have known as this was a tv show but its only viewing option is in 4:3 aspect. Not a very big deal with a quality tv stretching to wide looked fine. Still it was a little disappointing for blu-ray. However the show is fantastic and you cant beat the original 26 episodes for the price.

  5. As of this writing, there is only one other review, giving it two stars based on the price alone. But it’s only a little more than the DVD version, so I’m giving it 5 stars to counter that “review”.

    Of course neither of us has actually seen the disc yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up being a 4 or 5-star product anyway. I own the DVD version and am very happy with it (though the later seasons were better overall), and I plan to replace it with this Blu-ray version, if only to encourage Warner to put the rest of the series on Blu-ray.

    Two main things remain to be seen:

    – How good the HD video quality is. Justice League never aired in HD, so this will be a first. I hope it’s better than the Avengers movies, which were full of visual artifacts.

    – Whether it’s presented in wide screen. This first season was produced in standard 4:3, but designed so you can cut off the top and bottom without losing anything important. The DVD has the full 4:3 picture, and so far the specs on the Blu-ray indicate that it will be the same.
