Truly Awful
7 August 2017 | by OrangieTooDopeSee all my reviews

This show is a terrible interpretation of the Justice League. I suspect that all the ridiculous changes and the fact that they didn't call the show The Justice League was a sad attempt to make it more kid friendly. Imagine that, they thought that they needed to make a children's comic book more kid friendly. There's so many things wrong with this show that it's hard to point them all out but I will try. The worst thing is that they added two kids and their dog. None of them have any super powers and can do nothing to help the Super Friends. Yet time and again they somehow manage to save the day. It seems very Scooby-Dooish. They attempt to add the comic relief and the stupid dog even looks at the camera when someone makes a terrible joke. It's extremely hard to watch. One thing that is unforgivable is that there are no villains in the entire series. It's always just a regular person who thought he was doing the right thing. Every episode ends with that person learning an important life lesson and no one goes to jail. To make things even worse, the episodes are an hour long. That could have been a good thing but it's not. Half of every episode is just filler. They could have easily been cut down to fifteen minutes with nothing missing. Another huge mistake they made was having Casey Kasem do ninety percent of the voices on the show. He doesn't even try to change his voice, it's just sad. I won't even mention all the plot holes and on screen spelling mistakes. I hope the other Super Friends series are better.
