REVIEW: Justice League - Season 1 (Blue-ray)

After high-def success with their Blu-ray release of Justice League: The New Frontier, Warner Home Video has released season 1 of Justice League in a Blu-ray disc release of 2001's Justice League - Season 1.
Protecting the world from alien invaders, powerful sorcerers and nefarious villains is a job too big for just one superhero. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, Martian Manhunter and the Flash are seven of the world's mightiest superheroes. Together, they are the Justice League. In this collection of entertaining adventures, the Justice League faces such dangerous rogues like Lex Luthor, Felix Faust, Gorilla Grodd and Vandal Savage. Based on the popular DC Comics' characters, "Justice League" is another well produced animated series from the creators of the Emmy-winning "Batman: TAS". "Justice League" premiered on Cartoon Network in 2001 and became a popular hit due to the inmense popularity of the previous animated shows. The first season of "Justice League" features 12 multi-part episodes with likable good-versus-evil plots, refreshing characters, rousing comic book action and colorful animation. The first season is the weakest in the entire animated series but does include such standout episodes as "The Enemy Below", "The Brave and the Bold", "Legends", "A Knight of Shadows" and "The Savage Time".

If you already own "Justice League: Season One" on DVD, then you'll want to think twice before upgrading to the Blu-Ray set. Despite a strong fan outcry for the release of the first season in widescreen, Warner Bros has again disappointed us by presenting all episodes in their full screen broadcast format. On the upside, the picture quality is really good. The episodes never looked so bright and sharp. The 5.1 Dolby Digital sound isn't riveting but gets the job done. The 3-disc Blu-Ray features the same bonus features from the previous DVD set: "Inside Justice League" panel discussion, "The First Mission" promo, "The Look of the League" and "The Blueprint for Justice" featurettes and audio commentaries by series creators on three episodes (The Enemy Below Pt.2, Legends Pt.2 & The Savage Time Pt.2).

All 26 episodes running 575 minutes come on 3 double-density "BD-50" Blu-ray discs.
