Did anyone catch the new Titans? It was better than I expected, but my expectations were low. It was amazing to hear the original voice actors, but the art direction was subpar. The original Titans had such amazing art, and this is just basic and unimpressive. Though the writers did manage to stay true to the character. For the most part. Starfire seemed TOO dependent on her looks, Raven wasn't quite as negative as the old show, Robin's too cocky, and Cyborg and Beast Boy's friendship was a lot more dramatic than just being best buds. But otherwise they were the same. One thing that I both liked and didn't like was all the references to the Justice League (Wonder Woman, Superman, Green Lantern, etc. stickers in their elevator and "Bat-O's Cereal") on one hand, it was cool to see that the Justice League actually exists and acknowledges the Titans, and vice versa, but the original show did an excellent job of distancing itsself from the JL. It never once mentioned any member. Just the sidekicks, villains and kids, the cities of the DC Universe, and a very vague Batman reference made by Robin. But that brings me to another point. I LOVED how they actually referred the name of Jump City. They NEVER said it in the old show. Just the comics. That rocked. But the fact that they're avoiding action to focus on comedy falls short, because the comedy isn't very funny. So all in all, seeing the Titans was rad, and the original voice actors were seriously amazing, but other than a few good lines the comedy falls short. The art sucked. But the nostalgia factor improved the experience. But that won't last forever. The best part of this is that Teen Titans (and Young Justice) are in record high demand right now. If Go does well, they might just renew the original show for a sixth season. Which would make my life. (And we're still waiting on WB's and smgo's word on YJ, but chances of renewal are high. In case anyone was wondering.)
So Go wasn't BAD, but it can't match the original show. I'll continue to watch, however, because it certainly has room to grow.

If I were to rate it, I'd give it a 7/10. Not bad, but not great.

teen titans go is an old show i watch it before when i was like 6

thats the classic teen titans. hes talking about teen titans go. it aired just last night.  -_-

I didn't know it was airing until I saw this discussion D:

But thanks for the great review, I'll have to check it out.  Sounds pretty good.

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT. THAT SHOW IS TERRIBLE.

It isn't great, I'll give you that. Especially when compared to the old show. But for the time being, it ought to hold me over on my crave for new Teen Titans.

it was awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*awesome

All I've seen is the picture of Raven playing with pony toys, which I found hilarious.

That was enjoyable

They should make a Ben 10/ Teen Titans CrossOver Special where Ben Tennyson meets The Titans

That's what I was thinking! Derrick works on both, they both have similar-ish styles, and it'd be awesome because everyone loves Teen Titans. It'd get both series some well deserved attention.
That WAS brilliant. Really out of character for Raven, but I guess that was the point.
