G. Gordon stole the episode with one scene.

Purely speculating here but my best guess is 1. Too expensive to make (that quality animation isn't cheap to produce even if it is in Korea or where ever) 2. Not selling enough toys. Merch is the name of the game and it isn't a big surprise that the longest running cartoons on air where more know for their collectables than the show.

What is good and bad is subjective.

Why do you think that? Obviously there is a such thing as good and bad. These aren't philosophical theories, this is the real world. Hitler could have been a good guy I guess? Misunderstood maybe. You think that everybody's opinions are equal and should be respected? That sounds nice. Also aint nobody mad just cause they don't like what you like. Who are you talking to? I can judge you just fine without becoming emotionally invested either way.

Action is not boring, drama and angsty dialogue is.

Spoken like someone who has never had anything dramatic happen in their lives. Death in the family, wrongfully incarcerated, unplanned pregnancy, heartbreak. Drama in life usually sucks, sometimes it can catapult you in a positive direction but one thing that its not is boring.

I tried watching the latest Resident Evil movie that was admittedly packed with action but also the most boring movie I've ever seen. Not even ten minutes into it I was reaching for my iPad and checking my twitter feed. It became background noise. In contrast The Impossible was a drama about a family trying to survive in the aftermath of a tsunami, the movie damn near gave me an anxiety attack it was so dramatic.

I am not speaking i am typing. and it was typed "like" someone who doesn't like watching drama on television or at the movies. nothing more, nothing less.

Hardly. I just don't want to watch superhero cartoons and see all the blubbery teenage angst, drama. Watching drama is indeed boring to me. If you like it, fine. You are entitled to like whatever you want. Trying to make me feel that it is not boring is a complete and utter waste of time on your part. People are different and have different views. You just should learn to accept it, or not, the choice is yours.

The last resident evil movie was just not good. It had nothing to do with drama. it just wasn't a very good movie. If you want tpo watch dramas then good for you. I don't like what you like and never will. No sense in you trying to convince me. It is called individual taste. It is futile and pointless to try to make someone like what you like.

You are so right, not everybody can have good taste! Good points.

Yeah then I might stop watching the show, It would be a huge and incredibly stupid waste to kill off their most developed and rounded character.

Seriously I get why people would be upset with her recent actions, no they are not justifiable and no I don't care, she's my favorite character because she's so flawed. She feels like the most human character on the show and. Seriously some people get so hung up on characters morality or whatever that they forget writing and characterization, and M'gann particularly in the second season is a well written character so while yes she's not as a good a person as many of the other characters I care about her way more then say this version of Wally who is far and away my least favorite of the original 6, not because he's unlikable he isn't but because he's undeveloped and Iv felt that he's essentially been a satellite character for Artemis, only around to advance her plot line, yet the fans of this show drool over him because "OMG HE SO FANNY" and what have you. I want more than that out of my characters.

I feel like half the goddamn hate is just people hung up on HELLO MEGAN in which case that's done ,it was a plot point and that plot is done and it wasn't even as annoying as people made it out to be, seriously if you know a one second line once in a while makes you rage you need to learn to tune the little things out.

Can we please just get another episode like Image that makes everyone like her again so I don't have to deal with this crap anymore. I mean it's really not fun when I have to spend half the time I spend interacting with other fans of tis show defending the integrity as a character of my favorite character.

And to the people who want Manta to you know really hurt her in revenge, don't you realize you are cheering on the exact same thing you probably condemned M'gann for doing in the Kaldur situation? someone gets really hurt/dies and now someone close to them wants revenge on the person responsible? It's the same thing.

O and J'onn's current costume pales in comparsion to his final pre-reboot costume, the half shirt is silly looking and not having the full X rids him of part of one of the most iconic things about his look, symbol being on his chest is fine though.

So much win in this post

I have a few favorites that I think have been explored a lot on the show (Conner, Aqualad, Artemis). Some have a lot of potential but haven't gotten the screen time (Beast Boy, Zatanna). But in the end I voted for MM. She is complicated, torn, unlikeable at times, and she makes mistakes but thats what makes her the best character on the show.

MM is one of my favorite characters on the show. I also thinks she one of the shows deepest and realest characters. Wanting to cover up who you really are because you think people wouldnt except the real you is a very powerful human emotion and its one that the show is very brave to try to tackle. It's what separates YJ from regular kiddie shows I could care less about.
