In episode 7 of season 4 we see a bunch of white martians lying on the ground after being attacked by M'gann. The audio description says they're "corpses". So, are those martians actually dead? If so, why didn't J'onn apprehend M'gann afterwards? why didn't he intervene when she was confronting M'comm? it's not like they were having a nice conversation.

They're not dead. I'm sorry the audio description got that (or anything wrong). I only started reviewing the close captions at the end of Season Three, when it was brought to my attention that they were often ... problematic. So I reviewed them for every episode of Season Four.

Believe it or not, no one mentioned the Audio Descriptions being problematic UNTIL Season Four - and not until after every episode was in the can. I don't know if that means that they were great the first three seasons, and only became an issue with Phantoms, or if it means that no one thought to mention it until now.

Obviously, if we get a fifth season, I'll review the Audio Descriptions, as well. But it's too late for Season Four. So take them with a grain of salt, I'm afraid.
