Ignorant Parents should only blame themselves - Read the Rat

"Reviewer Paco", who seems to believe that anything animated should be viewable by all children, should wise up and look at the TV rating of the cartoon BEFORE buying the DVD. Justice League and Justice League Unlimited (which Cartoon Network airs at 10 o'clock at night) is rated TV-Y7-FV which is described as follows:
Directed to Older Children - Fantasy Violence
For those programs where fantasy violence may be more intense or more combative than other programs in this category, such programs will be designated
Wanting to know how he should explain something "to your 4-year old little girl or boy watching" begs the question, why is your 4 year old watching something meant for children a little older in the first place.
I'm all for Parents monitoring what there children watch. That being said, however, does not mean that Parents should blindly buy a Superhero DVD or see the Warner Brothers label and think it's going to be OK, sight unseen. Have we forgotten how violent the old Warner Brother's cartoons were? Why was the Coyote chasing the Road Runner? What was Elmer Fudd doing with that shotgun?
Don't blame the DVD."
Great, good old-fashioned stuff

"First of all, I grew up with Justice League comic books and even have a couple left from years ago. "A kid's review", who trashed JL (and posted it twice, no less) obviously is either too hard to please or needs not to take things so seriously. If that individual doesn't like JL, he or she doesn't have to watch it. Just don't trash my "pals" with your narrow mindset, okay?
I've seen every JL and JL Unlimited that has been aired over the past couple or so years, and I've enjoyed every one of them. This DVD and the other JL DVDs have good and interesting episodes, although I whole-heartedly agree that WB needs to release the full seasons in boxed sets. These JL DVDs could use more special features, too, but for a hard-core fan, they're worth the $$. I recommend them for those who aren't trying to hold out for box sets.
I enjoy the clean and detailed style. The animation could be a little better, but what the heck? It's so much better than most of the garbage some studios are trying to pass off for animation. The dialogue, artwork style, and character portrayal is great. The interaction among the characters is precisely the way I remember it in the comic books even back in the 1960s. The artists do a great job with the expressions on the characters' faces, too. I guess that's the main reason why I like this and the other DVDs; this middle-aged citizen can recede to my childhood for a little while and enjoy the fantasy with my old pals. My grown kids enjoy JL, too. By the way, I think Hawkgirl is a babe without her mask on."
