I always liked the Teen Titans comics, even if, as a kid, I didn't entirely understand what in hell was going on half the time. I thought the Titans was a great subject for a new DCU cartoon, but it's not likely to touch on much of DCanimated continuity, if at all. That sort of thing, I can suck up. I can even suck up different characterizations. Raven was always too freaky for my tastes in the comic; Cyborg was always too depressing; Starfire was always too...angry...
I have my problems with the show, but I don't mind giving it an extended chance. What really nags at me is the lack of an origin episode. I assume, at some point, they'll get around to it. While I am something of a proponent of "Start in the middle and finish early", I really think, in this case, we need it. Or maybe I need it. I just felt like I had been left somewhat out of the loop with the show: why are these guys together? How did they meet? What is their basic unifying force?
I like Cyborg's look. It's really more complex than one would think at first blush. I like Raven's look, but her personality reminds me too much of most of the girls I've dated. I can see myself sitting down to coffee and cigarettes at a Denny's with this chick, and given my track record, that ain't a good thing
...Hmmm...I wish Kory was curvier, but primarily only so that Cyborg could call her "Bubble-bod"...
Ahem. Ignore that last part.
