Young Justice: Outsiders (Returns in June)
The Young Justice Season 3 page is up on DC Universe. It looks like we'll get three new episodes each Friday morning. (So we'll get through the series in two months instead of six).

I've only seen one review, but it was very positive.

You can pay $8 now and watch the first month, or wait a couple of months and pay $8 and watch the entire season.

Excited about this. This is the reason I got the DC streaming service!

That seems like a lot to charge for a streaming service that's bound to not have much content.

It's for DC fans.

Watching a season of Titans and the first two seasons of Young Justice alone made it worth the money for me. YJ and Doom Patrol start this month. As long as they overlap the new series as they come out, I'm good.

They appear to be releasing this season in 3-episode installments (at least all the episodes slated for this month), 26 episodes slated for the season.

I just watched the first three, very, VERY solid work. If you were a fan of the series previously, you will definitely like this new season.




***SPOILERS***





They've definitely taken the intensity of the show up a couple of notches. Two dead kids and the gruesome near-murder of a third.

Really enjoying it thus far, can't wait for next Friday!

As if the previous seasons (which combined Titans and J.L.) weren't good enough, the new title isn't just an homage. They hit the Batman and the Outsiders concept fairly hard from the start. If you're a fan of the BatO comic series, you'll love where this show is going. We're getting Titans, J.L., and The Outsiders.

The show has always been thick with deep cuts. Now they're at the point where Kirby's Fourth World tech and Rann tech are just a given and woven seamlessly into the plots and dialogue. They throw out comic names and places and reference events from previous seasons knowing that the viewers can keep up.

And I'm liking the three episodes a week set-up. You can watch it as a 70 minute mini-movie (DCU allows you to skip the intro) or watch in segments.

Be sure to check out the closing credits. They've gone with a serene style that shows some anime and Twin Peaks influence.

Love how this series doesn't waste a second on re-caps.

"Roy Harper and his clone older brothers walk in..." They just assume we're all up to speed and ready to go.

The Cyborg origin episode was one of the more gruesome scenes in American animation. Definitely wouldn't have been shown on CN.

They released four episodes on Friday, so that we could watch the mid-season finale. I'd guess they'll do the same for the season finale.

Props to them for breaking the season into two halves like this. We had a ton of closure for the major storyline, the new characters settling in, and the teaser for what we'll deal with in the second half of the season (which is going to be glorious).

Watching this show is like being back in the early 80's getting in on the ground floor of the New Teen Titans and Batman and the Outsiders. The happy accident of having Geoforce and Tara as similar characters led the writers to make them brother and sister, which led to some amazing storylines.

This Halo character is much more interesting that the original blonde from the comics. I was an Outsiders fan, but Halo and Looker seemed pretty bland to me. At least Katana had a super-sword and an interesting background.

If you're wondering where the second half of the season is, it starts in June with Swamp Thing.

Damn not till June? I was thinking like a 5 week hiatus.. that sucks. First half of the season was great. Crazy enough my favorite episode was the one that focuses on Vandal Savage. I love a great villain and his backstory was done very well.

Reminded me of the Diaz origin episode of Arrow. One of the best episodes in that series.
