JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED
When I was younger, I loved Batman: The Animated Series. I still do. When it came out, the justice league shows never caught on with me because, other than batman and superman, I didn't know many of the characters all that well and/or didn't like them.
Boy was I stupid.
This show rocks! Literally, the theme song is full out rock n, roll (awesome!)
I revisited this show when I heard a lot of reviewers say it was really good. I saw the original justice league show, and it was pretty good, but this is even better! The characters are awesome, the stories are awesome, it's just a great show, and it's better than I originally thought it would be (that being it would just be batman and superman being overshadowed by a bunch of other heroes' story arcs and the two of them just kind of Being there.)
LOVE that show! Saw the finale a month or so ago, and it was quite fulfilling. While it did have it's down moments, LOST has to be one of my favorite shows of all time. It focuses a lot on character development, giving the audience a good idea of the charters' back stories and motivations. I especially liked Charlie, Claire, Sawyer, Locke, Desmond, Mr. Eko,
and Hurley (Let's face it: everybody loves Hurley). Lapidus was also pretty cool but I wish they had dedicated an episode to his character. The one thing I can honestly say I hated about the show was the beginning of seasons five when

All the passengers except the main characters got killed. Seriously, a huge part of the show was Jacks efforts to get EVERYONE off the island, and they just massacre them all in one episode. I really hated the others after that!
There were also a lot of unanswered questions, but, when I saw the ending of the finale, when

Jack watched the plane fly away as he lie dying in the same bamboo forest he awoke in when they crashed with Vincent next to him, and he closed his eye for one final time, mirroring the show's opening with his eye opening. I cried when I saw that.
I allowed myself to forget those for a while and focus on the beautiful ending scene.
LOST was not perfect, but it was very intriguing, always keeping you guessing until the next episode. I'm really going to miss watching it, I loved it so much, it feels almost a part of me now. (Though in a year or so I'll probably re-watch it when my friends or relatives get into it.)
