I can't take teen titan go! seriously enough to watch a full episode. the plot in the episode are from pointless nonsense to ridiculous crap. it at times that i watch them playing "pretend".
the characters in the show aren't the same from the original teen titan. robin act like a psychotic goofball, starfire act like tomboy at one time and a dut at other, cyborg and beast boy both act like nimrods.
This show is great! It's a huge improvement from that mediocre Teen Titans. This show will attract bronies around the word, in fact, there's an MLP:FiM reference in one episode. That instantly got me in love with this show, I love this show very very much! It's much funnier and cuter than the original, and 100% recommend for the family! This show is also as good as Uncle Grandpa, another great show on CN. This and Uncle Grandpa are the best shows on CN, no doubt! This show is perfect in every single way possible and I really do love it with all my heart! Even better than some MLP:FiM episodes. So this show gets an A++++++++++++++++++ from me. Infinity/10.
This show would have gotten a failed rating if it wasn't a cheap reboot of Teen Titans and the fact that it is somehow kind of funny.
Whatever the original show tried to accomplish with complex characterisation has been demolished by this trainwreck. This show seems to have joined the pantheon of shows which get enjoyment and laughs out of overboard randomness and cliches. I really do despise this new outlook of most modern shows of trying to cater to "younger audiences".
The characters are crazy caricatures of the ones from the original cartoon, and storylines are very silly, but the stupid humor makes me laugh often enough. For what it is, it's entertaining. I still miss the old show, but it's nice to see some BB and Raven stuff, even if it's just for laughs.
Okay, so I watched the first episode, and it starts with a stupid in-joke, you know, stupid ponies. Thanks to the voice actor who voice twilight in MLP, now we have a voice actor who voice acts to bad shows, MLP and This load of crap. Both shows are bad, the in-joke is bad also. I had to cut off my TV because of this, if I had a kid and I see him enjoying this, I'll seriously break his arm, it's that bad.
I like the Teen Titans, but I hate the new one. It has no drama or anything like the original series. It just seems more like the Amazing World of CrapBall. All the show really has is a bunch of poor animated characters (Raven is the worst) that just wander around and do random activities like eat a bunch of fries and cheat at dodgeball.
When the original Teen Titans aired 10 years ago I first thought it was horrible because of its childlike animation but I gave it time and it was really good because of the stories. Now with Teen Titans Go it has even worse animation and just humor as its stories. Apparently the executives at Cartoon Network think just because Regular Show and Adventure Time is popular they think that formula would work for the Teen Titans which it doesn't because it got old really fast. What's worst is that they replaced Young Justice for this. What audience are they targeting? Teen Titans Go belongs to an under 12 audience.
Its for kids and that isn't really a bad thing. In the beginning it was okay and had some funny moments. Still does I guess and even after I realized it had no point, it stopped making sense, and had no continuity I figured well it still works with the style of the show but I'm on episode 19 and it just keeps getting worse and worse to the point where after I watch an episode, I realize that I didn't look at the screen and blocked out most the noise. Kids might find it entertaining but I think even they deserve better. It doesn't quite deserve a one but I don't care. All the good shows have been canceled. I want this to end so we can get some even half way decent ones going again.
I hate this show. It's uncool and unfunny, it's also awful compared to the old teen titans show. The teen titans in this show look totally weird and all this stuff in that show totally stinks. I can't believe they cancelled Green Lantern and Young Justice because of a stupid show. They should cancel this show and bring back green lantern and young justice. When will they do that already?
To be completely honest with you, I didn't really have a thought of this at the beggining. When I saw the promos, I thought, "Oh boy. Well, may as well give it a chance, right?" And ya know, I didn't really think it was that bad at first.
Like Lordatim has said, you shouldn't hate the show because it isn't like the original was. But still, I am wondering why they made this a spin-off if it isn't like the original... oh well. Onto the review.
The humour is OK sometimes, but most of the time it's trying waaaay too hard. And as others have said, it can also be disgusting and dry. I will admit to laughing sometimes, but most of the time I will shake my head in disappointment.
This show relies a lot on, as a Troper would say, comedic sociopathy. Which means the characters are jerks to eachother and it's played for laughs.
I also really have a lot to say about the episode plots. Mostly, they all make no sense and are waaay too over the top. For example, there's an episode about the characters trying to make a sandwich by going all over the universe to get the bread, tomatoes, etc. I personally think that's a little lame.
Another episode was about the titans playing a prank on Beast Boy, making him think he's dead. Afterwards he goes to jump into a volcano because he thinks he's a ghost and they /all/ end up dying. So yeah, sorry for spoilers if you haven't already seen the episode but I need examples :p.
TL;DR, the episodes all have very weird plots, plots that are unfunny and/or overused, or plots that are really bizarre. Also, most of the endings are... what's the word... fucked up? At least it doesn't have continuity (sp???).
From watching any episode, you can tell that almost all of the characters have new personalities. Which is fine, spin-offs don't need to be exact. That doesn't bother me.
But what does bother me is what the personalities are.
Starfire: Pretty much the same girl as she was before; she's an alien so she doesn't really understand Earth and she still uses the same broken up speech.
Robin: Changed a lot, but like I said, I'm alright with the fact that he's changed. His new personality isn't that great, though. He's really focused on his position as leader (not in a good way), he's a goofball, and he's not entirely smart.
Raven: Hasn't really changed that much, but now she likes ponies??? Uhm, okay. I guess I can overlook that. Maybe. No, I can't.
Cyborg: A lot like Robin, he's become more of a goofball. He's obsessed with food like pie (wow ok) and meatballs, too. Kind of odd. But alright.
Beast Boy: Turned into a sociopathic idiot. His change probably pisses me off most. If I do remember correctly, he was somewhat silly in the original Teen Titans (or am I thinking of someone else?) but not a moron. Or a jerk to his "friends". Ahem, okay done.
So in short/TL;DR, it's not that funny, the characters changes are defo not for the best, and the plots are really fucking weird.
Also, I see a lot of people aren't very happy about CN taking Green Lantern and all off the air for this. I can understand that.
Beast Boy eating meat, Raven watching pony TV shows, Starfire being a drama queen, Robin being a jerk, and animation that is worse than what might be expected of a cartoon 70 years ago. Is this what young viewers want? I mean really?
OK even if they don't want to consider this cannon with the original. Too quote a certain video-game character "HOW CAN YOU BE SO UTTERLY INCOMPETENT?!" Every single one of them (Raven included but to a lesser extent)
When I first saw Teen Titans Go, it was hilarious. Robin was finally out of his comfort zone---not being mister serious leader all the time, but as the episodes moved on, Robin's personality on these series seems to completely destroy his original character in Teen Titans. Most of the jokes are forced, gross and desperately attempting to be funny.
I never liked the animation. I tried to deal with it, but in the end, I do not like it. Way too bright, flat and even a bit on the low budget side compared to the original series. Character design is terrible. Once again, America cartoons think that making characters stupider, meaner and grosser is what people like. Maybe for some folks, but definitely not for me. All of the Titan characters are extremely obnoxious on these series.
The episodes are short, bizarre and do not make sense most of the time. A random episode every day is never a good idea. would not recommend TTG. Stick to the original series.
I am not going to compare this to the original much, a little is unavoidable but I have to agree with others that you should not just hate this because it is different from the original show
Here is my big problem with Teen Titans Go; they sacrificed way too much for the humor. The original show had humor how it also had a lot action and drama in it. That is what kept us interested in watching an episode. During an episode they knew when to cut to a commercial so that we wouldn't change the channel. The show also dealt with a lot of issues, such as prejudice ( Troq), you are you not matter how much your body changes(Transformation ),and true friendship (how long is forever)
As a result of all the drama that the show had, the humor was very funny, it lightened the mood. In addition the humor was, for a lack of a better word, well thought out, the humor was always made by the characters and the reasons why it was funny was because they were making jokes that related to the character. For example Starfire was an alien so she would often times not understand earth culture and food, remember how she drank mustard. silly but put into context, very funny.
But with this they do not really go for that kind of humor, it is more strange out of this world humor and I don't liked that in a show, never have. I just fell that is very lowbrow humor and taking an easy way out. In addition the ideas behind the episodes are just stupid; oh we need to travel the Universe to make a sandwich, our clothes get a mind of their own let's make Raven's dad, and all powerful and evil demon, being turned into a parody of the 1950's sitcom dad, complete with a sweater vest
as I said before you should not just hate this because it is different from the original show. change is natural and a show, even if it is a spinoff, should be able to hold up on it's own and this show doesn't for me, it seems they have no respect for the old show and it's fans
in the end if you want a show that has silly, crazy humor in it than go ahead and watch this. However if, like me you want something more than just skip this and watch the original show.
Teen Titans was very cool, it got the balance between serious action, but still some anime eyes and humor, but Go is totally different. It looks like a crazy anime from japan with no sense and just freaky, totally nuts stories. But it is funny sometimes, but that's simply not that, what a Teen Titans fan wants to see. They don't take anything that serious like the Justice League . and humor is part of TT, but you can put some noname chrarakters for Go and it wouldn't be such a waste of the cool TT.
If you look at Teen Titans Go and Teen Titans you see several changes. Animation, and the balance of comedy and action. Even though Teen Titans Go is a children's show that is not an excuse for poor writing. The comedy you see for Teen Titans Go is about as good as current SpongeBob episodes. The show could be improved if the comedy was smart. The audience may be children, that doesn't mean they are morons.
The original "Teen Titans" show was awesome, combining a perfect blend of action and humor and only being dark when it came to Slade and Trigon. Then it had a sad depressing series finale, Things Change.
When Young Justice came on, it was like a darker Teen Titans but still mega awesome and just as good as Teen Titans, but we still missed Teen Titans. So what happens? We lost Young Justice and got Teen Titans Go! which was lame and stupid and an insult to what made Teen Titans great.
While I love that the original voice cast returned (and the only reason this isn't a two out of ten), it isn't the same. They took the perfect bend of action and humor and threw out 98% of the action and replaced it with more humor.
And yet.... It's not the worst show I have ever seen. There are actually some good moments on this show. My personal favorite episode is "Pie Bros" as it actually shows real emotion and true friendship in it. And Robin's chicken dance in "Super Robin" actually made me laugh.
Seriously, I was one of the people who actually hated on the show because it wasn't like the original, it was replacing Young Justice (although I haven't watched it that much), and it was getting far better treatment than Green Lantern and Young Justice. However, I did take some time to watch it, and it is pretty good. I thought that they were going to pick up where the last series left off, which confused me when the Teen Titans were surprised that Trigon was Raven's father. After getting over that, it is pretty good. It might not be as good as the original series, but it wasn't meant to be like the original series. In truth, I see the series as a parody of DC heroes. However, there is the troubling thought that since Cartoon Network renewed this for a second season, this is what action series will be reduced to: action-comedies. While I wish Teen Titans Go! the best in its successful two seasons, I hope that this doesn't mean that Cartoon Network will condemn itself to action-comedies.
It seems a lot of the hate stems from "THEY CHANGED IT, NOW IT SUCKS! MY WHOLE EXPERIENCE WITH THE TEEN TITANS IS RUINED! I DON'T WANT CHANGE! CHANGE IS PURE EVIL! I HATE CHANGE AND WANT TO GO BACK TO BEFORE CHANGE! WAHHHH!!!" If change is really that bad, then we should bring back slavery, since its abolishment is technically change. We should bring back the Holocaust, since its end was technically change. We should go back to being nomadic tribes with stone and wood being our only technology, since the Neolithic Revolution was technically change.
The show, however? It's okay. It's actually not bad. It takes a bit of getting used to, but after that, it's alright. Overall, 8/10. Now stop being stubborn whiny brats and learn that change isn't bad.
I know it's not the original show but after I finished watching the Teen Titans and the movie I was heart broken,at least we can still see and hear the same voices, and the characters act more or less the same because if there's never going to be a 6th season even I want something about them to watch. (and I do respect all other opinions of the matter)
Alright, to start off, independent from all shows this cartoon is at the least decent. A couple of good jokes here and there, quite a bit of character interaction, the plots aren't all that great but hey, it's a comedy series, so let's not bash them too much on that. So all in all, a pretty good show that could last a few seasons on its own.
In fact, this show strikes me as being similar to the "Justice Friends" cartoon shorts on Dexter's Laboratory. Both of them take action superheroes and put them in a mainly comedy setting. In both of them, the action is toned down and turned into "facing the challenges of everyday The episodes are even around the same length.
So then, why has Teen Titans Go suffered so much hate while the Justice Friends cartoons were generally liked? Well, quite a bit of haters of this show use four words to describe it, "They ruined my Now, I'll agree, this show is nothing in comparison to the original TT, but let's get something straight - this is a spinoff series, not a sequel, not a spiritual successor, a spinoff. It takes place the same time the original TT takes place, and I'm uncertain whether what happens here is considered canon by even the creators of the show. Some of the characters have been distorted, but it's all to fit the new genre. And how can a spinoff ruin your experience? That's like saying, "Hey, the original Super Mario Bros. movie was horrible. I'll never be able to play a Mario game So at its core, the majority of people who dislike this show mainly dislike it because it is different than the original.
Some people argue that this show would have fared better with entirely different superheroes. I don't doubt this, but there wouldn't be as much of a connection with them than with the original Teen Titans. Don't get me wrong, I'd personally love a continuation of the original rather than this, but hey, TTG is one of the better things to come out of CN for a while.
Also, people who think they cancelled Young Justice for this are wrong. From what I heard, Young Justice was pulled off the air because of poor sales or something, and this new show happened to take the DC nation time slot.
In the end, this show is a risky move. I hope it turns out well, and it might just attract a younger audience to the Teen Titans.
Teen Titans Go is a very good show and my opinion. I know that some things from the original show have changed a lot (that's why I give it a 9 instead of a 10) but i accept it because it is very funny! Unlike other people i don't think they ruined the teen titans at all, I just think they made them a lot more goofier and sillier which is what I like. This is one of the best shows on the CN to me and what I wonder is why it's rated PG instead of G or Y7 which is what it should be rated to me.
Teen Titans Go! In a word; no, just no. Don't waste your time with it if you are looking for anything remotely resembling the original Teen Titans.
It's horrible every which way you look at it (from characters, to story, to animation) and it makes me wonder if the entire goal of this show was to try and make as much money off of the earlier Teen Titans success and creativity as possible. While using as little effort as possible.
The new Teen Titans just seems like they wanted a comedy that tied in with all the main trends that sell well (like Animated Ponies), but without actually trying to fit the marketing with good story lines.
Even if the animation is terrible (both in design and effort) I can look past that if the story is good. But the story isn't good (and even worse when compared with the original), and doesn't even bother making an effort at being good. It's as if the writers just threw up their hands and went "Eh, I don't care, why should you?"
The entire work comes across as half done, and it is unfortunate that both Young Justice and the Original Teen Titans are replaced and/ or continued by Teen Titans Go!
The worst part of all is that Teen Titans showed that good stories can be told with the Teen Titans. They just require effort, effort which Teen Titans Go! just doesn't seem to want to give.
If they could bring back the original principal cast for this suck-ass re-imagining, why the fuck couldn't they just bring back the original series itself and use the comic books as a base to episode plots, thereby bringing it to life and creating a cash cow from there CN? It worked for Fullmetal Alchemist through FMA Brotherhood, why the fuck can't you dumbshits do the same!?!? Entertainment sucks when you leave it in the hands of fucktards, but at least they're not Viacom. >_>
Good god! What has Cartoon Network done to one of the greatest action cartoons ever made?! Are you seriously telling me they cancelled Young Justice for THIS?! REALLY?!! What a slap in the face for Teen Titans fans!
Alright, let me cool down a moment. I will admit that it's good to have the original voice actors back. And seeing the Titans in chibi form is kinda cool. But apart from those two things, nothing about Teen Titans Go! is good. The humor is immature, the episodes are about really stupid things, and the characters are not what they used to be! Robin's a jerk, Beastboy isn't funny anymore, and what the hell is Raven doing watching My Little Pony?! (Not that it's a bad show, but the old Raven wouldn't watch something like that!)
I don't want to stay on this page any longer than I need to, so I'll just wrap this review up now. Cartoon Network doesn't have much of anything good now. But Teen Titans Go!, it's not their worst show, but it's pretty close. If you were a fan of Teen Titans, then stay FAAAAR away from Teen Titans Go! unless you want your memories tarnished. It is a complete pile of crap and an insult to the 2003 series.
I get it it's different, it's a kids show and it's funny. What do you want? I read Teen Titans way back in the 80's and it took some getting use to the original show 1) being silly and 2) No Wonder Girl.
Well the new show is a new take on the first show, love watching people complain how they are "ruining Teen Titans"
Teen Titans. A show that came out about 10 years ago, that was actually pretty good. Why, you might ask? Well, let's put it this way. It was a show about 5 teenage superheroes, that was not only very fun to watch to watch due to its great action sequences, but also had pretty good story arcs and interesting characters. The show's series finale aired in 2006, which left a lot of people wanting more because of how much of a cliffhanger it was. So, obviously, people would ask for a continuation of the series. While they didn't get it, at least not yet *heh heh* Cartoon Network would air a series of shorts based off the show. This gave fans hope that the series would continue due to it receiving more publicity. Clearly Cartoon Network, being the great company that they are, would give the fans what they want, right?
Instead, we got this. And, well, it's honestly a mess. A comedy show that completely craps all over the original series. I get it, the original show had its fair share of comedy too. But it wasn't overwhelming, it was simply comic relief. In this show, it's the full package, and honestly it's not very good. Granted, it's not worse than say, a show like Johnny Test, but that doesn't mean it's much better. It's more annoying rather than funny, which I found to be the exact opposite in the original.
The art direction is...... a pain to the eyes. It literally looks like it was made in MS Paint, touched up a little in Photoshop, and placed into Adobe Flash. The end result is a mash of rainbows and a lack of any real detail in the characters. Heck, there's literally NO shading at all in this show, even in backgrounds! A basic component of a cartoon, and they somehow messed it up. Also, what's with the chibi designs? It really looks out of place, even for a show like this. The animation leaves a lot to be desired.
The characters took a huge pounding, too. While characters retain their original personalities, there's just some things that completely ruin them. Two major examples are Raven and Starfire. They turned Raven into a more girlish character, to the point where she watches a My Little Pony ripoff. Starfire has it worse, though: whenever someone messes up something for her, she goes berserk, and in many cases she takes her anger out on HER FRIENDS. It's just cheap humor in my opinion, and not true to the original character at all. In terms of the other characters, Robin, who was actually pretty intelligent in the original show, has become a gullible imbecile in this. Beast Boy is the same to an extent, but he's VERY annoying now. Cyborg is also dumber, and he's just not as interesting to watch as he was before. In terms of other characters..... Well, they turned Trigon (Raven's father) into a complete, utter JOKE. Thankfully, Slade ( or Deathstroke for you purists) is nowhere to be seen, and hopefully it stays that way.
Again, I recognize that this show is meant to be humorous. However, that doesn't change the fact that the plots are stupid and incredibly unfitting for a show with this premise. A similar show, Marvel's Super Hero Squad, had plots that were fitting for a superhero show. Another show, the Powerpuff Girls, also had plots relevant to the superhero theme. However, going out of your way to find ingredients for a "mystical sandwich" doesn't exactly scream superhero. Sorry, but it's true. The writers behind those shows I mentioned knew what they were doing with plots, so why don't the writers for this follow suite?
The voice acting, as you might expect, is good. The show has all of the original VA's, which honestly raises its prestige a little bit. If you liked 'em there, you'll like 'em here.
Besides the voice acting, if there's something positive I can say about this show, the main theme remix is kinda cool, and it does open possibilities for a legit reboot. That's it, which isn't really saying much about the actual show, is it?
For the record, I'm not reviewing this show solely on how good it is compared to the original. I'm also reviewing it as its own entity. It fails on both parts.
Well, I'm done ranting. To finish off, I'll just say this. We could have had season 6, but instead they made this. Cartoon Network trolls its fans yet again.
