Justice League Unlimited

Wow.. this show is just awesome.. great stories and writing, great animation, fantastic battle scenes.

I'm rewatching them as a result of DVR'ing it for my 4 1/2 year old.

Second time around, I have a much better appreciation for it.

I'm rewatching it right now (just finished rewatching Justice League). It's such a great show, it's too bad the show didn't last longer then it did (even having the second season be 26 episodes instead of 13 would of been nice).

I loved the Green Lantern Episodes because that's as close to a Green Lantern cartoon as we are going to get unfortunately.

Actually JLU (not counting JL which preceded it) had three 13-episode seasons, but the first two seasons are packaged in a single DVD set, giving the false impression that there was a 26-episode season followed by a 13-episode season.

Re: Justice League Unlimited

Why was this show "canceled"?

Was it a creative decision to end it or did CN just pull the plug?

I just finished watching the first DVD season and I forgot how awesome The Question is. He should of got his own spinoff (with the Huntress as a reoccurring character).

I think it was a creative decision. They wanted to move on to movies I believe.

I thought they were planning on moving to Legion of Superheroes, but those other guys got the show instead. So we got a more dumbed down version. They usually do an episode setting something up with their future plans. Batman Beyond had a Justice League episode. Justice League Unlimited had their Legion episode, setting it up with Supergirl instead of Superman. I prefer Superman for the focus of the Legion since they can't seem to get access to Superboy.

Advertisers prefer animated shows that are geared toward younger audiences, since they can sell more toys that way. And networks depend on advertisers for their funding. So CN decided to move away from shows geared toward teen and college-age viewers in favor of shows geared toward younger viewers.

I think it was actually extended. The last season (last 13 episodes) were actually tacked on after the creative team thought they were done with the show.

In a way, a short run can be a blessing. If a show ends quicker, it doesn't have time to get stale. Of course, this means shorter shows that end before getting crappy are not long enough for the fans who want more! MORE!!!

For example, if firefly was in its 9th season right now everyone would be bitching about how it jumped the shark 4 seasons ago.
