Similarly, my wife didn't like Avengers EMH at all because it seemed like you were already know who everyone from the start. On the flip side, she does enjoy Thundercats, Young Justice, and even some Green Lantern Animated

I think Young Justice, Thundercats, and Green Lantern are perfect examples of shows that are playing similar "long games" (as Jason said), but they're not doing it at the expense of the individual episodes being entertaining, and are therefore, doing it much better.
Young Justice was pretty good. I wish it had more fake Spider-Man, voiced by Josh Keaton no less! And the season premiere of the Avengers was okay, something about it just seemed off to me. Although I did like Dr. Doom's DGAF attitude about things.
I really didn't care for Ultimate Spider-Man. I liked the second episode much better than the first and the writing is pretty good, but I feel that the actors speak too quickly and therefore go through their lines much too fast.
Plus, they try WAY too hard to be funny and there are absolutely way too many unnecessary cutaway gags and fourth-wall breaking. I'll give it some time to adjust itself and maybe surprise me, but I'm not a fan right now.
Avengers, on the other hand, was way awesome. Dat Dr. Doom. Dat Fantastic Four. So good. I can't wait to see where this season goes and how many more cameos they can put in. I hope that picture of all the heroes gathered isn't everyone they're putting into the season. I also hope for a full scale Kree/Skrull war. Probably during the finale.
