FW TV PICK: TEEN TITANS

I didn’t watch the popular DC Animated Show growing up, then again I haven’t watched any DC Animated Show growing up on Cartoon Network; but now that I have seen it, I was immediately hooked! Leading the Teen Titans to protect Earth is Robin, formerly Batman’s sidekick. He has no special powers, just a utility belt and his mind to help solve problems. His team members, Starfire, Raven, Cyborg and Beast Boy, live together in Titans Tower, situated in the West Coast haven Jump City. Each of them possesses unique abilities to help fight a new generation of villains ranging from super-powered hooligans to would-be world conquerors. Thanks to its character development, anime-inspired comedy and serious themes, I can easily see why it is Cartoon Network’s most beloved series of all time. Also makes great use of their rogue’s gallery which includes H.I.V.E., Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Blackfire, Trigon and the Brotherhood of Evil. The show also makes great use of popular comic storylines such as “New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract” and “New Teen Titans: The Terror of Trigon” alongside meeting the Doom Patrol (Beast Boy’s former team). Which makes its cancellation all the more bittersweet!
