I <3 Control Freak episodes. Usually the uber-geek humor has been pretty cliche in recent tv shows. It takes a lot of work in order to find something new to make fun of. So the writers turned to TT fans online. The 8-bit Zelda-ish fight sequence was the highlight. Although I guess you can call me a Titans East-hater, because I still don't care much for them.

Okay, for some odd reason, after "Snowblind" airs on the 29th, "Kole" will be airing on Wednesday, November 2nd at 7:30pm...

Not a dry eye in the house, eh? It seemed very similar to Firestorm I's fate during Identity Crisis to me. But that doesn't mean it's not good.

Here's a freeze-frame bit for when RS posts vid clips of this episode: I could have sworn one of the doctors working on Red Star was Professor Chang for "X." Look for him when Red Star's first undergoing his treatment.

Great episode.  Starfire really does get the best stand-alone episodes, doesn't she?

I liked the fact that, while the rest of the Titans were in cold-weather gear, Starfire was just wearing her usual outfit.  I mean, if she can fly through space, it wouldn't make much sense if she was bothered by a little snow.

I love Dr. Light, and I love that this show continues to use him as the incompetent bumbler that he should be.  Stupid Identity Crisis.

I also really like the animated version of Kole.  Too bad she's dead in the comics.  Stupid Anti-Monitor.

I liked that Kole hasn't changed her boots from the mid '70s. That was nice.

However, for those of us who aren't familiar with the pre-Crisis DC continuity, it would have been nice if they introduced the character somewhat. Instead of, "oh, here's this girl who just lives underground in the past for some reason. And she turns into something vaguely crystalish."

Eh, there really isn't much more to Kole than that.  Marv Wolfman created the character just so he could kill her off in Crisis on Infinite Earths.

I wasn't too impressed by "Kole," to be honest.. Kole was cute, yes. The fight scenes were quite cool, yes. The animation and backgrounds? Gorgeous as always. A connection back to the Brotherhood of Evil? About time.

But something just didn't hit quite right. Maybe it was the caveman Pokemon...

The fact that Raven completely forgot she can disarm Dr. Light by simply going into her dark towering mode just bugged the hell out of me throughout the whole episode. I could easily see why they left it out, because the episode would've been over in 3 seconds, but still...at least have an explanation or something - like she lost that ability when Trigon was destroyed...

And Starfire and Raven not picking up Cyborg and Robin and flying away along with Beast Boy when the ice started cracking was also a sore spot.

There were some cute moments - I loved the drink-er, eating contest bit - but I really think they kinda wasted Dr. Light in this episode.

Also, while the ending was about damn time they connected back the Brotherhood of Evil, it only made me cringe that Robin really was that stupid at the end of "Trust..."

7 out of 10. Here's hoping "Hide and Seek" is better next week.

In other news, there's more on the TT console game: http://ps2.ign.com/articles/664/664478p1.html

I have to agree with RS on this one. I was looking forward to "Kole" mainly because of Dr. Light's involvement. I may be the only person alive who enjoys both the bumbling, arrogant animated version and the sadistic, psychopathic new comics version of him.

I don't know much about the character of Kole, so I can't comment on that. Except to say, as mentioned above, we never got a chance to be introduced to her. It's "I live underground with my caveman friend." Her repitorie with Cyborg was cute, but she was more McGuffin that anything else.

On the plus side, the comedy/anime-ish aspects of the show were well done in the opening battle sequence and afterward. BB's communication with the dinosaurs and Raven's rejoinder were great. Was it just me, or did the characters move more "cartoony" than usual?

On the whole, a let down from the rest of season 5. That's more because this season has been absolutely spectacular, but "Kole" didn't live up to it.

Two of the kids' names are known from a leak on imdb: Timmy Tantrum and Melvin. All I can say is that if this ep isn't great plot arc-wise, I can sure as hell know it's going to be very entertaining.

I'm kinda disappointed in general that there wasn't any sort of lasting change to Raven after defeating Trigon.  Would it have been too much to ask for the white costume to have been a permanent change?

I had read the description for this episode before, but I didn't realize just what they meant by "young superheroes" until you posted that screenshot.  Looks like it'll be pretty funny.

  • Early thoughts on "Hide and Seek":

It's so rare to see Raven kick serious ass. Because she's the most powerful character (arguably), the writers feel they have to balance the playing field by not putting her up to her full potential. Think of all the powers she has: telepathy, telekenesis, teleportation, and that towering darkness form she has. So it's good to finally see her all out aggressive.

The kids weren't too annoyingly sacchrine. Usually, I hate cute precocious children in cartoons. The children's abilities coming through for the first time in order to defend Raven against Mssr. Mallah wasn't totally original, but it served its purpose. And Raven didn't get too gushsy concerning them at the end of the episode.

Beast Boy answering Robin's communicator like nothing's happening was pretty funny. Especially when we can see Robin getting beaten up in the background.

I have no idea what the Brotherhood wanted with the kids, nor why they were so important that Raven had to keep them hidden from them. I guess this may pop up later in the story.

I'm hoping to god this is one of those arcs with a huge, all-threads-connecting thing at the end of the season, cuz so far there hasn't really been much to advance an arc plot...

That said, this episode was entertaining because of the interaction between the kids and Raven. From my experience babysitting (yes, I've done that, but luckily just for cousins and neighbors with genuinely good kids) and in Child Development class back in high school, the writer nailed the kids dead on the head.

Best parts of the ep? Raven's bedtime story, her fight with Malla - because it actually had a teensy semblance of a hand-to-hand battle - and the appearance of Bobby at the end.

All in all, entertaining, a good development for Raven's character, but as far as the overall storyarc, there better be an episode soon that advances more of that, or else this season is just gonna end up with just each episode being pretty much the same as the last.

Bad news and good news, people.

First up, the bad: The chance of TT getting renewed for a 6th season look quite bad at the moment. So do that letter-writing thing (oh, and buy the animated TT merch - yes, I mean the toys, too - if you can, that'll show the WB executives that people are still interested in the show.)

-Now, the good: SEASON SET DVDS! Season 1 DVD looks to be arriving Feb. 7, 2006.

Is there any reason for me to buy this, seeing as I've seen every episode enough times that I'm completely sick of them? Say, commentaries, deleted scenes, featurettes, anything? 'Cause it doesn't seem like they want my money.

Doesn't look like it. Which is a shame, because they already released a lot of episodes bunched together on DVD previously. I would assume this set was more for "older" fans who would appriciate this stuff.

Is there some law that CN has to stop running shows after 5 seasons? I think it's pretty silly to cut off a popular show just because it's gotten old. After all, TT gets good ratings, right? I see the toys all over the place in stores.

The production crew just got word: There will be no 6th season of Teen Titans. 
http://forums.titansgo.net/viewtopic.php?p=206608#206608

However, we still have the rest of season 5, the DTV movie Teen Titans: Tokyo, and the DVDs AND Season Set DVDs. And of course, the endless repeats that will be aired on Cartoon Network.

Please, no whining, crying, or tantrums on this thread. Do that privately, in your room or something.

On a positive note, Lightspeed -  the next new ep of season 5 - premieres on December 3rd, and according to comicscontinuum, Revved Up premieres Saturday Dec. 10th at 8pm, and Go (the origin story episode) premieres Saturday Dec. 17th at 8pm.

"Revved Up" and Ding Dong Daddy have me worried. Just the name "Ding Dong Daddy" makes me shiver in anxiety. Perhaps it'll surprise me, but it really sounds kinda stupid. All the cameos from previous villians might be good, as long as its an excuse to pop in a lot of minor characters before the show goes off the air.

I'm not that sad that TT is going off the air. I don't understand it, but I can accept it. From what I've read of season 5 spoilers, it looks as though the show's writers are ending the series on a high note in a continuity-wise way. There's nothing wrong with going out like that.

On the other hand, is TT still popular in its target demographics? Whenever I'm in Target or a store like that, I see the TT merchandise all over the toy aisles, so I guess it's still big. The action figures look pretty crummy, though, from what I've seen on the commercials. Since I don't know a lot of 6-12 year olds, I can't ask them whether or not they like it. Do people catch rating for kids' shows?

The only thing with TT goin' out is that it's most likely a sign that JLU's being tossed out of the window, too.

In other news, a Toonami promo with Lightspeed clips has begun airing - very quick clips of Kid Flash running past a tower of Billy Numerous', and getting punched by Madam Rogue:

A lot of these new Toonami shows look really bad. I may speak for an audience a bit older than what CN is looking for, but these dueling monster low-budget anime programs look really really stupid. The stretchy-pirate show, the dueling robot kid show, the 600 trading card game shows, none of these look very good. Now, I know a lot of people like Naruto (my friends included), but I never understood the popularity. It's DBZ for people who claimed never to like DBZ.

Oh, did we ever figure out whether it's going to be Wally West or Bart Allen as Kid Flash? I know RS and David A maintain it's going to be Wally, but it definately looks like Bart from that promo.
