...AND DID I MENTION JLU IS THE BEST CARTOON EVER!


I won't spoil it for you but the final epsiode of JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED entitiled "EPILOGUE" is amazing! While it doesnt feel like a JLU episode, but more an epilogue for the BATMAN BEYOND show. Yes that's right we go back to the future and the BIGGEST TWIST EVER is dropped in our collective laps about the origins of Terry McGuiness and the whole BATMAN BEYOND world takes on new meaning. A perfect ending to one of the strongest seasons of TV ever - and to think that Cartoon Network didn't air this on the weekend of Batman Begin's second reign at #1 at the box office.

I enjoyed this one, but not as much as Divided We Fall. Yes, it was a hell of a twist, but the more I thought about it, the more it felt forced based on what's come before on Batman Beyond. The discrepancy was most blatant when you bring up the Batman Beyond movie, Return of the Joker. Terry most definitely did not behave like Bruce would have given the same situation. Guess the writers thought they weren't getting renewed, hence this episode. So, I'm wondering if they know what they're gonna do next season. After all, Brainiac did nail all seven with his beam. Couple that with Jonn's odd 'No!' and you've gotta wonder if he knows a bit more than the others concerning Brainiac.

Definitely the 4-parter was the highlight of all of the JL cartoons put together - but it was good to see Terry again and as an older and somewhat wiser Batman.
