I noticed something this episode that I completely missed last time. During the opening credits they show little snippets of the episode. WTF is that? I knew almost the whole plot before I even watched the damn thing. I rewatched last week's episode and it did the same thing. Anyone else notice this?

^ Yes - I noticed it this week too. It was actually pretty annoying once I realized what was going on. Why would anyone sign off on the idea of showcasing a 30 second summary of the episode just before the episode is shown? I don't believe I've ever seen it done.

So since they have so many in their Justice League, why dont they ever call for back up? Superman, Batman and Wonderwoman needed help.

Yeah, I kinda groaned at that. I mean, why not use one of Batman's vehicles? His can hold two people as well... Overall, a pretty good episode. Jason

I'm watching "For the Man Who Has Everything" for the second time as I type this. Terrific episode, though I kept looking for parts of the comic that weren't adapted (like Robin's appearance and Mongul's dream).

And just what was Mongul's dream supposed to be? All we heard were sounds of destruction and people screaming. Was it supposed to be him destroying a world?

Mongul's dream was:
the destruction of the League and his eventual installation on a throne of some sort, ruling a planet.

Count me in as one of those who do not like the new intro or the guitar sounds in action sequences. I'm excited to see some of the new characters but I hope they stay with the core group. I also agree that they should take more backup so that they do not get wasted every time they go out. Anyway, liked the first episode, loved the second. Hope they kick out a good season. Manny

I'm actually going to avoid the opening credits from now on. It's not the crappy new score as much as the fact that they give away the entire episode before it even begins! What's the point of showing snippets of the show that ruin the cliffhangers and spoil the suspense?

Other than that, I *loved* the last episode. It really strayed from the new format though, considering the only new "character" they had was WW's invisible plane. Posted Image

I adored the scene with Bruce & his dream though, as he watches his father pummel the gunman, until...

I also wonder that myself from both episodes so far. Mainly, because of the addition of the transporters in this series. In the first episode, they made the excuse that the transporters had trouble locking in because of the radiation. However, once GL was out of commision and they returned him to the Javelin, I have no idea why they wouldn't call for backup. This past week's episode suffered from the same logic. Personally, I wish they hadn't added the transporters and the constant vigilance (I hope Martian Manhunter gets some action this year). The previous series, for the most part, did a wonderful job of keeping things plausible (from a comic book standpoint).

So what did you guys think of "Kids' Stuff"? I normally hate it when there's some contrived reason to turn main characters into kids, but this episode was a keeper. The Leaguers as kids were cute and who didn't love the baby Etrigan? The cameos by Blockbuster, Cheetah, Copperhead, and KGBeast were all pretty neat too. I'm looking forward to "Hawk and Dove" next week! De

I was kinda surprised to see Cheetah. Last we saw of her she was being dragged away by Grundy after being exposed as a traitor by kissing Batman.

I liked how they all refered to each other by proper first names at one point, and the "girlfriend" thing between Bruce and Diana.

Can anyone tell me when/if Justice League Unlimited is re-run this week? I missed Saturday's episode and would like to catch it before next Saturday. Also, if there a place that posts the show's schedule (with episode descriptions)? The sked on CartoonNetwork.com isn't very good. Thanks!

I've really gotten into the JLU this year. The episodes are fantastically written and have that 'comic book' feel to them, especially the last few episodes that aired in Canada. Great cliff hanger on "Panic in the Sky." Awesome stuff. Anyway, so is this the last season of any Justice League-related stories? Are any future episodes planned, or spin-off series being worked on by the creators? mike.

Just saw tonights episode "The Clash", Great action(man talk about a beatdown) and it's always cool to see Superman and Captian Marvel( Shazam) lock horns. I also really loved the admonishment that the league, especially superman gets at the end. It's bringing the whole JL vs. Cadmus closer to it's final super human war. I really think that JLU has hit it's stride and it would be a damn shame if it doesn't get another year.
I just want to be entertained!

The board ate a post on this from me last week. This show is 100% fantastic. The best DCU show since BTAS...easily. Smartly written, extremely well-choreogrpahed action, and a season long arc. Just a brilliant cartoon. Absolutely brilliant, Chuck

Does anyone know the summer schedule for the show? I know next week (6/18) is a new episode, but beyond that, I don't know. It seems like several of the episodes planned for May were pushed back (Double Date, etc.). How soon til Warner puts these out in season sets?
