Hi,

Justice League: Season Two is a definite must-buy now!

Definitely!! Back when the DVD edition was release, I never quite understood why was all the big trouble with the non anamorphic WS, of course back then I had a 4:3 TV so the DVD looked fine to me, but when I got my HDTV, well... let´s just say that I´m very happy with this news :anime:

Can´t wait to see this season in WS anamorphic and on HD!!

Later...

Ha! I just watched through all seasons of JL/JLU and I guess I'll do it again soon!

Hopefully this means a Blu release of JLU isn't far off because HD transfers are already readily available for purchase through direct-download outlets like Amazon and iTunes.

Now...Where is BatB on Blu?;)

Sweeeeeeeeeeeet!

Justice League season 2 on Blu in 16:9. That's pretty much why i got a blu-ray player and high def tv. Though the rest of the stuff on HD is sweet too.

2 discs... hmmm. Is that enough space to fit 26 eps of JL? Season 1 was on a 3 disc set.

Oh well baring a major catastrofu I'm getting this! The brutal episode 1 Darkseid vs Superman in HD!

As a rule, Warner overcompresses all of their animated titles on Blu-ray, and it's been that way for a couple of years now. Every animated title they've put out for a while now is riddled with compression artifacts and heavy banding. Even when there's tons of space available on the disc, Warner still overcompresses the video. I have no idea why they're so insistent on doing that, but they're only getting worse about it. The most recent season of The Venture Bros. (more than four and a half hours of video on one disc!) and Firebreather are particularly bad in that respect.

Good God & Son's Pogostick store, four and a half hours on one disc? That's...pathetic. Simply pathetic.

Woo-Hoo! I had given up on season two ever being anamorphic! Really looking forward to this; I haven't been able to stomach watching season two in the limited, tiny box format, so it's been a long time since I watched those great episodes.

Those 3-packs are neat. The fanboy in me is kind of hoping the DC Kids and the JL Blu-ray sell well enough for them to consider continuing the DCAU in some form under that brand. :p

I'll probably buy the DC Universe 3-pack for my cousin since he's been borrowing my DVDs non-stop and since two of his four favorites are on it, but unless it's got some kind of killer bonus the originals don't, I probably won't get it for myself.

Pardon me for sounding stupid, but what 3-packs are you talking about?

Yea! Season 2 of JL on Blu!

I had given up, but maybe some decent sales of ROTJ (I got mine) convinced them to finally release S2.

Can't wait to see that Superman/Darkseid dust-up from "Twilight" on Blu...as Timm says on the commentary...he's loves story boarding 2 advisories that simply hate each other going at it, and it always shows in the fight scenes he works on. :D

Thank you WB!

Brave And The Bold Season 2 Volume 1 arrives August 16th, but has 12 episodes rather than 13. I suppose there's a reason?

I guess it is to keep the Siege of Starro together, but I dont know why they wouldnt just put out 14 episodes instead of 12.

It's easier to fit 12 episodes on two discs rather than 14, the episodes themselves will also be less compressed. But either they're gonna release 14 episode release, unless they skip "Mask of Matches Malone".

The first two releases have 13 episodes each - one disc with 6 eps and one with 7. So, it doesn't seem like this has anything to do with compression.

Frankly, as long as they release all of the episodes eventually without using flippers, I don't really care how they do it.
