How many episodes remain for the season?
"I can't complain. I got to be Jim Morrison for the first half of my life, and Ward Cleaver for the second half." - Warren Zevon.
The season is over. Season 2 starts next week.
I'm loving this show and salivating for more, but I can't help but wonder why they even bother organizing it into "seasons" the way they do.
It seems to me that ever since Battlestar Galactica, it's become fashionable for TV studios to arbitrarily take a 6-to-12-month break in the middle of a "season". BSG is the world's worst offender, but Doctor Who, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and Young Justice are doing much the same.
YJ aired 9 episodes, took a six-month break, aired 9 more, took a four-month break, aired 8 more, then slid right into "Season Two" without so much as a breath of fresh air.
I don't get it.
Because it gives them more time to have episodes in the can. With "Doctor Who", that's the standard practice of BBC shows. Effects driven shows like BSG, need time to complete those effects. A single 2D show takes nine months to produce and unless they outsource to multiple studios, it will take a while to get enough in the can. "Batman: The Animated Series" did that which is why they had 55 episodes done when it first aired. In the 80's, "Transformers" had Toei do season one, most of season two and part of season three, while Akom and a couple of others did a couple of episodes here and there. But the animation quality varied with lots of errors throughout. But they were able to have episodes over a four to five month period, then nine months off.Originally Posted by RockyBanks

Some character stills taken from the Cartoon Network promotional online game.
And unlike say, Ras who has a league of hired killers, virtually all of Batman's crime fighting resources run through him and Robin. So yeah, he's at something of a disadvantage

Beast Boy looks like he's half-transformed into a monkey. I actually kind of like it.
I love that Wonder Girl looks like her Young Justice counterpart. I wish the comics would go this route.
