Yeah, those are the two deals (you have to sign up before the 20th):
3 months at 3.99 or
one year at 59.99

I'm actually more tempted by the 3.99 one.

Be sure to watch the season finale through the end of the credits.

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

Just watched the finale. It was good and very well made, but the whole Robin vs. Batman angle from the trailer was:

Spoiler:
A total red herring. None of the first 40+ minutes was real as it was created in Dick's mind by Rachel's evil father to help bring out the darkness in him.

Plus, it was kind of obvious in a way because they mentioned a 5 year time jump. Luckily none of the Batman angle was real. Batman fans would have lost their shit with him turning into a evil cold blooded murderer.


Also, question about the end credit scene:


Spoiler:
Was that supposed to be Superman? Or a dark Superman?



It's a very very dark episode. Both content and the way it was shot.

I think that was supposed to be

Superboy
at the end.

Thanks

I've seen a couple of episodes of Young Justice and it slipped my mind that they would tie in that character to this.


For those interested, DC Daily has a spoiler discussion posted today on the app about the finale. It's 19 minutes long.

I believe in the end credits it listed the part as
Spoiler:
"Conner Body Double"

I’ve read that this wasn’t supposed to be the finale, that originally there were 2 more more episodes that got scrapped.

Yeah.... it sort of felt like this season was about 2-3 episodes too short. I was hoping for

Dick to put on the Nightwing costume at the end of season 1

The end cut scene

Spoiler:
definitely had a Young Justice vibe to it. Superboy clone looks more like Superman. He's yoked!

Well, that was certainly a different take on the Titans. And while it took some getting used to the changes they made to Kory, I'm interested to see where it will go. My one gripe is that Beast Boy/Changling only turns into a tiger? And it's a shame that this exists outside of the CW universe, I'd love to see Wally and Roy as part of the team.

Nice! As a DC fan, I wanna cry because it's so cool and I never thought I'd ever see them together in Live Action!

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

I am enjoying this show quite a bit more than I thought I would. The production quality of it is pretty fantastic.

I was pretty down on Anna Diop as Starfire just based on her look, since I'm used to the JL sort of Brazilian model look, but she is excellent in this.

I will say the CGI is atrocious, though. I mean Raven's stuff is good, but the tiger is horrid looking.

DC Universe Reportedly A Failure With Subscribers

It would appear that Warner Bros.’ ambitious DC Universe streaming service is struggling to gain the captive audience that executives were hoping for.According to a report from Thomas Polito of Geeks WorldWide, the a la carte DC streaming service is not the profitable venture that Warner executives had been hoping for. Polito also commented that it would be a “surprise” if the number of subscribers were to increase at this point. This statement has been supported by KC Walsh of Geeks WorldWide, who reported that the service has only been able to gain 700,000 subscribers since its launch on September 15th of last year. Neither were able to provide a source for their claims and it is not likely that Warner Bros. will release internal data about subscribers.

While the service’s inaugural original show Titans was well-received by critics and DC fans, it was not always that way. The series premiered on the streaming service amid scrutiny and disapproval from fans after Warner Bros. released a divisive trailer for it at San Diego Comic Con a few months prior that was followed by a presumably low-budget marketing campaign. That low-budget is seemingly carrying over to Doom Patrol, another DC Universe original series. With this in mind it is obvious that fans were mixed on the appearance of the service and did not feel inclined to pay a monthly $8 fee for something that may not have a high production value like the Marvel Netflix shows. Ironically, Titans had a $20 million production budget, which means that it was technically a loss alongside that 700,000.

Who seriously expected this service to be profitable in under 4 months? That's a ridiculous write up.

Yeah, pretty silly to think they would be in the green after four months. I suspect they expected to be in the red for a few years at least. The offerings aren't strong enough yet to hold people.

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

I’m not sure how these services that have only a handful of viable properties think they’re going to hook and retain subscribers.

I mean, Disney’s fucking Disney, with a vault full of catalog titles and Marvel and Star Wars and Pixar.

And then there’s DC, whose cinematic universe collapsed after five movies. I don’t think Human Target, Lous & Clark, and the 1990 Flash series are muchnof a draw. At least there’s at least a pretense that the Netflix Marvel series are part of the MCU.

Yeah I agree. It's like the saying goes, "Numbers lie and liars use numbers".

On another note, I'm at the Titans finale. Really enjoyed the Hawk and Dove episode and K'oriandr.

Titans alone is worth the subscription. So far, its the strongest super hero show on tv.

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

I'm at the episode where they escape the asylum. I like the show but there's way way way too much edginess. Is this really what people want, heroes that are ok with murdering (I also just saw Aquaman where I had the same problem when he just decimates the Atlanteans).

I thought for a second when Dick saw his reflection that he was going to turn a new leaf or something but nope, let's burn the whole asylum down. Hey, maybe there are other innocents down there like Raven's mom was, trapped in their cells, but nope, let's kill them all. I'm not sure if this gets addressed in the last handful of episodes, but geez.

Also, so many plot holes. Like where did his costume come from? When he was wearing his costume earlier it was all in his head. Earlier, how did the Nuclear Family track him down to Hawk and Dove's place (I assume something the partner told them, but how would she know?) How did Starfire get there?
