Young Justice: Episode Reviews
Season 2 - Episode 8: "Satisfaction"Reviewed by: Isaac Frisbie
Rating - 3 (out of 5): Okay, for me this was not that great of an introduction back into the series after the hiatus. Angry Speedy? I don't buy it. Why is it that those being held in stasis on this show (Superboy and Roy Harper) jump to anger? One person? Okay, fine. But both? I'm tired of the whole "I'm angry at the world" teenage angsty thing. And he seemed overly angry and unforgiving. And a little psychotic. "But Isaac! How would you react under the same circumstances?" I would probably be happy I was found and super confused. And wanting to browse the internet. A lot.
My other pet peeve was the girls in this episode. Now before you go all feminazi on me just hold on. I actually love girl centric episodes. They are great and amazing, provided they are done right. But this episode they just crammed them in there. And they all worked together to stop... Captain Cold? Lame. One of them could have done that. Maybe two, if things got tricky.
On to what I liked. The idea of Speedy becoming Arsenal (which is who he becomes in the comic books) was good. Don't like how quickly he got there. But since he's there it's kinda cool.
I'm lovin' the anticipation of where characters will go, especially the whole Aqualad storyline and his deep undercover. Also what we can expect from Bart and his seemingly villainous ways.
The episode also had some great action sequences in the parking garage. Seeing Roy get at Mercy by blowing up her mechanical arm was pure joy. I felt it was coming and my wish came true.
I guess my 3 rating was in part due to the fact that they just give us a little bit at a time instead of a more substantial chunk of plot. It's still a great show and I love it. I'm looking forward to more!
