I'unno, Bart has a more interesting personality? Looks like we may be getting a younger version of the JLU Flash, though... and seeing as he's my second-favorite on the team after Green Arrow, it should be a pretty good take.

Somehow I doubt that 30 minutes of ADHD boy would have been nearly as entertaining as this was.

My favorite part was when he told Jinx, "It's never too late."  That's the same thing that Beast Boy said to Terra.

Great episode.

I don't seem to be enjoying this season of Teen Titans.  Today's episode didn't even have the Titans.  It seems the Titans are seemily being pushed to the back.  Sort of how when Justice League turned into Justice League Unlimited and the 7 original Leaguers were pushed to the back in episodes.

I didn't like that how the Titans were not around when Control Freak took on Titans East.

I loved this episode. A little surprised it wasn't written by Dwayne McDuffie, considering Rob Hoegee nailed Wally's character so perfectly.

fryfan: What would you rather have - 5 seasons and a DTV focusing soley on the same 5 characters in the same damn city nearly every episode? Please. Despite that season 5 hasn't exactly been up to par, I'm loving how they're expanding the world. I mean, when one is shocked that they're seeing citizens in the Titans' city, you know they've stayed in one place too long.

Damn...Kid Flash today, and Red X next Saturday. I have a major feeling Revved Up is gonna rock, too.

When I saw the season 5 premiere, it implied that the Brotherhood of Doom was going to be more involved with the Titans' adventure and yet this season seems to have forgotten about a few things; Robin/Starfire sitch and other story arcs that are still activate.  Control Freak mentioning that Robin's not good enough for Starfire was funny, but it seems the Titans are losing what originally made me like the show.


I'm just looking at this based on the fact that Cartoon Network has limited the air times of Teen Titans.  Didn't you say that Season 6 hasn't been approved and that this season could be the last season?  It seems CN is hardly promoting the show.

I'm hoping the Red X episode has the original titans more involved.  It's not like that I don't like the attempt of bringing in new characters, but it's as if they're just coming out of nowhere like JLU does.

Finally caught all of "Lightspeed" last night. It's by far one of the most fun episodes of the last few years. Despite what some people say, I like the focus on the Hive 5, even though there are now 6 of them (I believe Billy Numerous is the oddman out). I wondered why there weren't more episodes of Jinx, Mammoth, and Gizmo working as a team. The three of them work well together, as this episode proves.

I'm starting to feel Madame Rouge is overplayed. The physics of her fight with Kid Flash are dangerously improbable but highly entertaining.

Kid Flash better appear later in the season. In the 3-part season finale, it looks as though there will be callbacks to a lot of previous characters, so here's hoping.

Holy crap with a capital K - Mad Mod and Red X are BOTH going to be in Revved Up!

How do I know? Check out Mad Mod's car for the race in the episode:

I saw "Go!" and all I have to say is..."wow".  I really loved this episode.  This is perhaps of one my favorites.  For an origin episode, it did feel a little rushed with the Titans all meeting, but I guess it had to be since it was a 30 minute episode.

-Two words: Angry. Starfire. Finally! Star acts the crazyass battle warrior like she is in the comics! I knew an Angry Starfire would be a memorable moment, and damn, did that one ever deliver more that I thought it would!

Unlike the kiss, the Angry Starfire opening was the highlight of the ep for me. "Starfire's so damn annoying because she's all sweet and cheery and cute and cuddly and sugary and her brain has a chocolate coating"? - say what?

-Holy Gordanian Mothership, Batman! Was that done in CG, or not? Well, CG or not, the design of it looked a hell of a lot better compared to the Gordanian ships in Starcrossed on Justice League.

-"I just moved here" - With that, let the argument over whether TT is tied into the rest of the DCAU commence. I say yes. Awesome Robin intro.

-"QUIET! ....Hi." 3rd cutest Raven moment ever, second only to Widdle Waven and Timid Raven. I love how she just...showed up. The Titans were constantly fussing about her appearing and reappearing in the first couple of issues of the comic, and her just appearing here kinda fit in with that.

-"Yes, Sir!"

"Seriously - don't call me that."

I'm a guy, but I can't say Beast Boy wasn't cute in this episode. He was beyond that - he practically had Starfire's present personality, for the most part - with a slight touch of annoying mixed in. It was funny how he was still having serving-under-Mento withdrawl with the whole "Sir" thing.

-I'm actually glad they didn't show the accident Cyborg had. They didn't need to, really. It coulda been he just tripped down one hell of a flight of stairs, for all we care to know. The athletic hooded shirt was also a great nod to what he was before the accident. Great intro for him, too.

-The action. DAMN. I was goggle-eyed at the picking-up-the-car-with-the-toes bit - and the fact that they weren't exactly coordinated around the end of the episode. Showed they still had a lot to improve upon there.

-Some people have mentioned how off some of the character models looked off. I think that was done intentionally. Raven really looked like some of the original Murakami drawings of her, especially in close-ups. It really gave the feel of a pilot - all the ingredients were there, they just needed to be broken down & blended together for the smoothie to be what it is now.

-The Kiss: Because I've fallen out of shipping in the TT community for the most part, I really have nothing to say about this except that I expected it. It was how she learned English in the comics, I figured the crew wasn't gonna skimp on that part of it.

Overall: 10/10. Booyah episode, start to finish. Season 5 is picking up.

I say no, because that would mean that all five seasons of Teen Titans (and any more that they might make) would have to take place before Robin becomes Nightwing, and I don't think that the timeline of the DCAU would allow for that.  Also, in Batman: TAS, Robin was already in college before he quit as Batman's partner, and Robin doen't seem to be that old on Teen Titans.  The continuity just doesn't work.

Another thing is that in the DCAU Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon seem to be an item both before and after he becomes Nightwing.  That doesn't really prove that Teen Titans isn't part of the DCAU, but it would be a depressing thought if it was.

Is it just me, or did that make anyone else think of Marcie and Peppermint Pattie?

They've alluded to Cyborg's accident before, though.  Remember when they had to fight their evil duplicates?  Cyborg's double taunted him with the line, "You don't have a Mama."

I also liked how Beast Boy mentioned Cyborg's similarity to Robotman.  Their friendship makes perfect sense now.

Although they left out the part where they later find out that she only had to touch Robin to learn his language, and she chose to touch him by kissing him just because she wanted to kiss him.

Oh, and I noticed that at the end of the episode, when they asked Kory her name, she said, "In your language it would be Starfire."  I guess I owe Kryten a Coke.

Preview of the TT season 1 DVD.

And the last three episodes of Season 5 will air as follows:

Calling All Titans on Saturday, Jan. 7 at 8 p.m.

The final game has begun. While the Titans are spread out throughout the globe on one last mission, Brotherhood mastermind the Brain makes his move. Robin has a strategy of his own, but as all the villains begin taking down all the superheroes all at once, will it be enough to save his friends?

Titans Together on Saturday, Jan. 14 at 8 p.m.

All seems lost for young heroes across the globe: they have been spread far and wide, their lines of communication have been severed, and one by one, the Brotherhood of Evil takes them down. But as The Brain claims his victory is assured, one brave hero manages to slip thorough the Brotherhood of Evil's grasp.

Things Change on Saturday, Jan. 21 at 8 p.m.

After months of fighting the Brotherhood of Evil around the globe, the Teen Titans are finally back home. But a walk through the city reveals that things are no longer as they remembered. And while Beast Boy wants everything to be just like it was in the past, he has to face the fact that in life things change.

Straight from titansgo.net:

New episode "Calling All Titans" airs tomorrow Saturday, at 8:00 PM (EST/PST). This highly anticipated episode will debut many new heroes, including Pantha, Argent, Herald, and Bushido! We'll also get to see new HIVE kids "XL Terrestrial" and the still-nameless "winged girl" (both first appeared in "Deception" ) debut in action.

We've been told by a production crew member that Pantha's voice actor was initially Freddy Rodriguez (Mas y Menos), but was switched to Diane Delano after first audio syncs were made. Argent and Herald will also get speaking roles (hooray!), and XL Terrestrial and HIVE "winged girl" will be using their powers for the first time. Apparently the Titans crew is very pleased with the episode, and with Ben Jones directing, we should be in for an incredible treat.

Finally saw "Go!", and it was freaking awesome! It felt like a lost pilot episode. The only thing I would have like to see is the begginings of building the Titans Tower. The Beast Boy and Raven moments were the higlights of the episode.

Beast Boy: "But...the mask is cool! Isn't it?"

*Everyone shakes their head*

Beast Boy: "Oh." *Takes it off*

and

*Everyone is arguing*

Raven: "QUIET!!!!!!"

*Everyone looks at Raven*

Raven: *Pause* Hi.   laff

This is one of the best of season 5.

In the end, not all the questions we want to know are answered.

Some plot points were clearly meant to be left open. And this ep was also quite heavy on the symbolism - and it was fairly blatant symbolism at that. But I didn't see it as a ripoff. I found it to be a beautiful end to the series.

However, *technically* this isn't the end of TT. There's still the DTV movie.

Yeah, but unless the movie is a continuation of this episode (and it almost certainly won't be), we still won't get any closure.  It was a good episode, but if they're never going to follow up on it, then I'm not sure why they even bothered.  Maybe they hope that the demand from the fans for a continuation will convince the powers-that-be to allow them to make another season.  (Hey, it almost worked for Farscape.)

If this really is the last season, then "Titans Together" would have been a better finale.  That last scene with all of the Titans and their allies about to descend en masse upon an unsuspecting Dr. Light?  Perfect end to the series.

The Teen Titans - Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven and Beast Boy - journey to Japan to find the notorious villain Brushogun. But crushing the criminal element on the other side of the ocean isn't as easy as they thought. When Robin is jailed for a brutal showdown with an attacker, the other Titans fall victim to Brushogun's evil plans...to end the Teen Titans forever!

Warner Bros has announced the direct-to-DVD movie "Trouble in Tokyo," releasing on October 17. The main feature runs for 75 mins, but WB has also included a special "lost" episode that didn't air. The episode was available through a Post Cereal promotion, and could be watched on Postopia.com with a special code obtained in a cereal box. The DVD will also contain "Robin's Underworld Race Challenge" - likely a game played using your remote. The suggested retail price for this set is $19.98.

Robin goes to jail. That sounds interesting.

Two bits of DTV movie news:

First, Trouble in Tokyo looks to be airing on Cartoon Network sometime in December, and the DVD release has been moved from October to May 2007 (which makes no sense to me personally, but what the hell...)

Secondly, as part of the 3 PG-13 DTV animated movies DC and Warner Animation announced at ComicCon, there will be a DTV movie of The Judas Contract, written by Marv Wolfman and Tom DeSanto, produced by DeSanto, and with Bruce Timm as Supervising Director. It will be based directly on the actual comic version. It will NOT be in either the universe of TT, nor even the established DCAU of B:TAS and JLU. George Perez is working with the art crew, so expect the designs to look similar to Perez's original designs in the comic. And then finally, for the people who have read the actual Judas Contract storyline - A sentence from Marv Wolfman's interview about the DTV movie:

 
Quote
"And yes," Wolfman added, "Tom [DeSanto] and I intend for the 'nightgown and cigarette' scene to be there."

I really don't know how to feel about this.

Personally, I prefer the Terra storyline from the cartoon to the original version.  I hated Terra in the comics, and I wasn't even a little bit sad when she died.  In the cartoon, Terra was a far more sympathetic character, because she wasn't all bad.  In the end, Beast Boy was able to convince her that it wasn't too late to change.  And then she died anyway.  That had far more of an emotional impact on me than the original version of the story ever did.

Also, the idea of a movie based on the original story raises some questions: Will Wonder Girl be in this?  Will Raven be the boring, whiny bitch that she was in the comics, or will her personality be more like the cartoon Raven?  Will the green guy be called Beast Boy or Changeling in the movie?

I'll definitely want to see this when it comes out.
