No that's not me saying Fuck Batman, it's Robin. Because TITANS is a dark and edgy version of the Teen Titans story

Looks utter shit to me.

I liked the Marv Wolfman comics though.

Ummmm...

TBF, ever since the New 52 reboot of DC Comics, they have all settled into a "grim dark and edgy" place, which has pretty much been confirmed as the way forward by the recent inclusion of the Watchmen into the DC Universe proper.

This, however, looks... the word isn't good, per se, but maybe interesting? I don't know, the angry Robin is kind of silly sounding when the says "Fuck Batman."

That is the most shitty-shit superhero thing since...well, a LONG time. Totally ass looking and conceptually dead on arrival. "Fuck Batman"? Seriously?

Titans Go! already has this covered, anyway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hH8aXw9Qhzk

Live action dc is garbage, even if it starts good (flash/arrow) somehow the garbage finds it's way in.

That's cause Marvel is too busy cranking out a handful of billion dollar movies a year to bother with dumb cartoons only comic book readers watch.

In a strange twist, this is not total garbage.

I mean, it's not Great, but it's a lot less of a total flaming wreckage than I was led to suspect.

The trailers were horrible. Even "fuck Batman" worked in context. Not that it's great or anything but i enjoyed the season.

I like this too. It's good superhero drama, like the Netflix Marvel series, but with a darker, almost Watchmen vibe.

This very short thread has gone through quick a number of dramatic twists and turns, ending with me putting Titans on my list of things to try.

This was actually pretty good. Binged it over four days. Has ups and downs, but its miles ahead of the generic CW DC shows.

So wait... are you telling me you all subscribed to that DC Universe thing? Or are you getting it in some other fashion?

Because if it's the former, how extensive has the comics section gotten? It was very threadbare on launch.

Here on the states you had to subscribe to the DC service for it. Which was something like eight dollars so not sure what the big deal is. Obviously i only kept it for the one week it took to watch the show, but i spend more on candy on a regular basis.

Just finished this, it ends strong.  The Hawk and Dove episode was kinda beautiful, and the final episode was close to perfect.

Basically it just went onto Netflix everywhere that DC Universe isn't (most places outside the US).

And yeah Starfire is great and the Hawk and Dove episode is kind of beautiful. Robin is messed up.

I haven't finished the series yet, so I may not know what I'm talking about. But the episode I was thinking of ends on their rooftop.

It's kind of amazing that Starfire is being described as good and very comforting too that she is, given the intensity of early reaction to her. I know the coat seemed like a bad choice to me too.

The intensity of early reaction was entirely due to her melanin content.

Just watch this early scene: "Total badass."

Not even she knows why she's wearing the coat. She just is.

Man, if they'd made that a teaser, I don't think there would have been so much whining.

The Titans cartoon (pre-TT GO) did choose to play up the character's innocence while mostly forgetting the other part of her history: that she was trained relentlessly to be a warrior in a very unpleasant context and escaped slavery.

I thoroughly enjoyed S1, it was a great take on the DC universe and the Superman movies and Suicide Squad could have learned a lot from it.

This looked like a disjointed mess, smells like a disjointed mess and is only making the people who like references for the sake of references happy. I'll pass. Also this douche kinda sums up/confirms my general assumptions/fears about this show
