Titans tv show

Let me start by saying Titans is not the lovable, funny and friendly show like you would see with Teen Titans Go, or the original Teen Titans cartoon. This is a gritty, mature themed Titans show that takes place in the DC Universe and it shares a connection with the Doom Patrol TV show. Titans follows Robin, the former Boy Wonder. Robin has grown disgruntled with his time with Batman and he has moved off on his own to Detroit to serve as a police officer and fight crime at night. However, no longer does he just fight to incapacitate the bad guy, he brutalizes criminals to the point of death! One scene in particular, which shows you the direction the series is moving in occurs when he is fighting a group of criminals and they are looking around in fear saying “Where is Batman?!”, and Robin replies callously “F@#% Batman!” as he beats the mess out of them. Dick Grayson (Robin) struggles with his dual nature, and realizes that he is beginning to like the violence more than just helping people. This is what makes the show interesting, it explores the motivations, and trauma of the characters and how their experiences shaped them. Robin primarily plays his real self Dick Grayson, as he tries to help a young girl named Raven who has demonic like abilities, but is on the run from “The Organization” that is trying to use her as a portal to bring her Father to Earth. Robin and Raven come across Kory who has amnesia, but has fire powers (Starfire for fans of Teen Titans), and Gar (Beast Boy) who help Robin protect Raven. It is not just a superhero show, it is a character driven show. I really love the real world take, that DC has taken with its properties, and the episodes are dark, brutal and bloody, but to me that is the reality of what getting into a fight with a real superhero or highly trained fighter would look like. This show is rated M for Mature and has some Game of Thrones and The Boys level sexuality and violence, so it is not for kids at all! However, if you love DC heroes or the genre, SPEND THE CASH!
