Lots of fun, but not as good as the previous “Unlimited” seasons. The focus is mostly on the villains, which wouldn’t be so bad except that Lex Luthor is the only serious villain that’s interesting this season. Meanwhile, most of the best heroes, like Batman, have smaller roles than guest characters.

Note: There seems to be some confusion over what makes up a season of this show. The DVD set for what I’m calling JLU season three is labeled “season two,” while the set of JLU seasons one and two is labelled “season one.” And seasons 1-3 of JLU are simultaneously seasons 3-5 of JL. What?
