Anna Diop is fine, imo. I couldn’t 2 shits about her being black. It’s 100% the outfit. The actress herfelf has been enjoyable.

Wait they didn't change Starfire's costume yet? I thought that was just an early version of her look for the first few episodes?

Still really enjoying this show even though the timing of the last episode is weird given the cliffhanger of the prior show.

Agreed that Anna Diop has been really good but her look and costuming are so terrible that it takes me out of the show at times.

That was a bit of a dark origin for Hank Hall aka HAWK.
Glad they included his brother Don Hall.

The character has had amnesia all season. The last we saw her was a cliffhanger where her memories/mission came back. Maybe the finale will finally have a wardrobe upgrade.

That was probably one of the best episodes I've seen out of all DC shows. Pretty damn powerful.

God I love Minka Kelly

I'm surprised Hawk and Dove doesn't have any powers given the supernatural and alien slant the show has already shown.

The deal this week is $59.99 for an entire year's subscription. That is as cheap as I think it's ever going to get.

I never read Hawk & Dove in my comics days. Did they ever have powers?

It would be interesting if it wasn't Bruce at all and it was Jean-Paul Valley/Azrael.

I was against subbing to DC, but this trailer is fucking kickass. I just might sub now.

Hank and Don were given superhuman strength by a mystic voice to turn into the Hawk and Dove. Hawk was the hot head and Dove was the voice of reason. They guest starred in the original Teen Titans comic and later became members before the book was cancelled a 2nd time in the 70's.

Also caught up with episode 10.

Pleasantly surprised to see Seamus Dever from Castle pop up as Rachel's evil father. Wasn't really that surprised that the mother turned out to be evil as well.

The trailer for the finale is cool, but it leaves a question if there is some kind of time jump.

I really like Wonder Girl. I hope she survives the finale and sticks around for season 2. She seems to gel really well with Dick.

Re: DC's Titans (DC Universe) -- Season 1 Thread -- Premieres 10/12/18

Sadly I long since gave up on this being "my" Titans (80s Wolfman/Perez) or 2000's Teen Titans... but what we have in its place is good. Not great. Ease off the gritty and the F-bombs. And setting the whole series in wintry suburban midwest is visually blecch.

But on its own, it's a fine series. If this goes to Season 2, I'd love to see them open up the HELL out of this world. It seems 90% of the series is set in various single family homes and cheap motels somewhere off I-90 in late January.

After finally seeing her in the show I don't have a problem with the so called "70's hooker" look. In fact, I like it even more since the camera makes her look a bit curvy. Shit, Starfire HAS ALWAYS been drawn like a Stripper/Sexually Attractive Woman. The fact that people are losing their shit over her look in this show is just stupid shit that fanboys do.

I've seen an internet ad pop up on the DC wiki site for three months of service at $3.99 per month.
