Note: I actually like Young Justice, and it's ratings are really good, but I have seen a lot of comments on the "problems" with the show so far.

For me the show hits the right notes with it's storyarc driven episodes but flounders when it comes to the filler episodes. And cause of the way the season was planned out it meant that I loved the first episode, hated the 2nd, loved the 3rd, hated the 4th, loved the 5th, hated the 6th.

Which is fine cause at least I know I'll be loving the season finale.

"loved the first episode, hated the 2nd, loved the 3rd, hated the 4th"

So, basically any of the episodes that have the female characters show some form of competence or just their mere presence you hate. Looks like you and this series will get along just fine.

Wow... way to jump the gun and imply I'm a misogynist based on me not simply saying that I generally didn't like certain episodes of a cartoon series for non-specified reasons.

Honestly, that was impressive.

Vague summaries are vague. What the episodes were about are not. What other conclusion can there possibly be?!

Considering it's a tv series with plenty of things for everyone to like and not like for various reasons, wouldn't it have made more sense to ask what I liked and didn't like first instead of instantly casting extremely offensive aspersions?

And FTR, I prefer the episodes I did like cause they focused on the overall storyarc with "The Light" which I genuinely find interesting, and didn't like all the other episodes cause they were detours meant to focus on specific character development, but since I don't think the show does a very good job of developing any of the characters, they all felt pointless and boring.

The third episode had M'gann solve the plot and was her focus episode.

Actually that episode, "Welcome to Happy Harbor" with T.O. Morrow's new robot, was the first one I didn't like; I watched the 1 hour premier so I consider the 1st hour of the series to be episode 1

M'Gann did shine in that episode though, but I really didn't like that it was still 80 percent everyone being unreasonable hostile towards her, including Kaldur, which disappointed me.

And it sort of retroactively bugged me later on, cause in the next episode, Drop Zone, it seemed like the team didn't actually learn their lesson from the previous episode which should have been it's saving grace.

Ahhh. I keep forgetting about the numbering thing... they insist on repeating the pilot as two eps @_@

It was a little inconsistent, but on the other hand, I feel like they're not really friends at this point; they're still getting to know each other. And I kind of dig that it's taking a while for lessons to settle in. But I can see how it would be frustrating for other people. I definitely get that it's not the most accessible dynamic.
