‘TITANS’ S2E05: ‘Deathstroke’ SPOILER Review

Oh boy! It really feels like these episodes are getting better and better with every week! Let’s talk about the good and the bad from this week’s Titans. THE GOOD Deathstroke- The arrowverse may have it’s own Slade Wilson, but THIS guy right here is THE Deathstroke. My GOD DC Universe has done such a good job at bringing this character to life; his calm yet chilling speech, his tactics, his ruthlessness, and his determination are just spot-on. As fans of the Titans we know that there was no way Slade was teaming up with Dr. Light because he actually respected or admired him. He was clearly just trying to use him as trigger bait for the team, and once he wasn’t willing to fall in line to Slade’s wishes-BAM. Light’s out (yes, I did that). Light and Aqualad were minor characters in the frame of the show, but they are pretty big deals within the Titans property. Their deaths have only further established to me that anyone here is fair game. At least, that’s …

‘Titans’ 2×03: ‘Ghosts’ Review

Another week so another episode of Titans! No time to waste; the good and the bad of the latest episode of the DC Universe sophomore season. THE GOOD Varsity Team Together: In this weeks episode our veteran members return to Titans Tower in order to address the threat of Doctor Light! As mentioned last week, once again that foundation laid out in season one shows its benefit here; We already know our characters and their relationships so when this plot shows up we can just get right into it! Dove unfortunately returned to her passive supporting voice to Hawk’s (justified?) frustration, but whatever. I’m glad to see not just the four of them working together, but to see the JV team continue training and continue to master their skills. They felt like nomads in season one and finally we’re getting to see superheroes be-well- super! Baddie Duo: Of course, respect is owed to the scenes with Doctor Light and Slade. I still can’t believe we’re getting a live-action series with all these characters!! Now  I’m wondering, with …

‘TITANS’ 2×02: Rose

I’m back to talk the latest episode of Titans. Is it an improvement from season one and the “meh” season premiere? The GOOD Love a Teen Drama: Something I talked about at the conclusion of the first season was how the entire thing felt more like a prologue/introduction instead of a complete story. As a comic fan it was fine for me. I believed doing this was certainly creating a mediocre first season, but it was also setting up an exceptional foundation for the future. This second episode is allowing me to see some of the rewards of that base. I had a great time seeing Jason and Gar train, getting to see more of Gar and Raven’s awkward relationship unfold, getting to see more of Donna and Kory interact, and even just seeing everyone hanging out at the luxurious Titans tower! This season the showrunners have created two groups; Titans and Teen Titans. This is perfect. Taking me back to the most recent comics set-up. Dick, Donna, Hank, Dawn, and Kory are now in …

‘TITANS’ Season 2 Premiere; Did it Deliver?

Alright, this was a messy one. Let’s begin! Let’s go through the good, the bad, and all thing Titans season premiere! The GOOD Deathstroke: Deathstroke made his debut at the end of this episode and, not only is he a DILF, but he is a latin one. Amen! We got our look at his uniform, the white hair, and the iconic eyepatch. I’m really rooting for Esai Morales (Slade Wilson) in this role because season one had a severe villain problem. Us comic fans know this is THE Titans villain and I’m excited to see where they go. A big plus is that we’ll be meeting Ravager and Jericho this season as well which should give even more weight to Morales’ portrayal. Donna Troy Suited: My Wonder Girl is Donna Troy. When she premiered in season one I prayed to the nerd gods we would get to see her in the red and gold-star uniform. Thus, my prayers have been answered! Of course, that was somewhat of a daydream flashback(?) and what clips we have …
