Yay! Last night, YTV finally started showing the season finale of Justice League, be it 2 months late. Last night was The Once and Future Thing part 1: Weird Western Tales. Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern track a time-travelling villain to the old west. They arrive in the past 6 months after the villain, where they learn that the time traveller promptly had his time machine stolen by an outlaw, and now the outlaw has used the time machine to gather technology from all across the timeline and is now using it to conquer the old west. So, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern team up with a bunch of Western heroes from DC's cowboy comic days and set about liberating the old west. Great quotes:

First putting on western garb to fit in:
Wonder Woman>> These boots are so uncomfortable.
Batman>> You fight crime in high heels.
Wonder Woman>> High heels that fit.

Riding off to the villain's stronghold:
Cowboy hero Bat Lash>> Now, be careful. There's been lots of unusual activity in these parts.
Green Lantern>> No offence, but we have lots of experience with...
(Green Lantern sees a cowboy fly by on a pterodactyl)
Green Lantern>> Um...you were saying?

Anyway, looking forward to next week's part 2, where Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern follow this villain to the future, and they team up with the future Justice Leage we saw on Batman Beyond. I've already read a synopsis online:

Batman Beyond>> Bruce Wayne...Batman. Batman...Bruce Wayne. Or have you two already met?
Batman and old Bruce Wayne (in unison)>> NOT NOW!
Batman Beyond>> I think this is what they used to call "stereo."
