This is a fantastic show! The animated Justice League series is one of my favourites. I arrived at this having watched 'Batman: The Animated Series' and 'Superman: The Animated Series' ... and, wonderfully, they all interconnect to form a whole. This is now known a the DC Animated Universe (which also contains several other shows, in addition to the one's mentioned).
These characters, as depicted in this animated universe, are amongst the very best of DC. Here we have Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Martian Manhunter, and Hawkgirl ... as well as a few others, who occasionally join in (such as Aquaman). This first season establishes the Justice League, and the relationships between the characters. There are several storylines, most often consisting of two or three episodes. In total, 26 episodes.
This saga continued in season 2, and onward in season 3 (or Justice League Unlimited) and season 4. All excellent.
While the show is suitable for kids, it's also pitched at adults. There's some adult humour (e.g. the Flash boasting that he's the fastest man alive, and Hawkgirl saying how that explains why he hasn't got a girlfriend).
Overall, great stories and wonderful animation. The DC Universe doesn't get better!
The included episode story-arcs are: "Secret Origins", "In Blackest Night", "The Enemy Below", "Injustice for All", "Paradise Lost", "War World", "The Brave and the Bold", "Fury", "Legends", "A Knight of Shadows", "Metamorphosis", and "The Savage Time".
