You know I don't know why people are so upset about the news, at least as to how it relates to other series. You know why they're having Teen Titans Go as one of the first series to premiere after the launch of DC Nation? Because it has such a huge successful track record. Just like how there is always a new Batman series every couple of years due to how popular Batman is, the Teen Titans series popularity is still strong so they want to capitalize on that. And really if that hits the ground running like the original series that will be enough to not only help increase the length of DC Nation but get other series going. Sometimes you have to play it save before you throw in the more risky throws. Afterall DC Nation is still pretty young and you don't want it to burn out too quickly by trying to just appease the hardcore. Really I'm sure if TTG is popular enough they'll also green lite a super best friends forever series. Cartoon Network knows the success of the other network's and their female led shows so they're not going to be sexist if it means turning a profit.
As for the actual Teen Titans Go show... I have to say I'm actually glad to hear it's different then the original series. I mean the original TT was suppose to end after season four but CN wanted another season due to it being so popular and the creators decided to end things on "Things Change" instead which contrary to what some people think is a fitting finale. However you know what else season five had: a lot of BORING episodes that tried to play themselves too seriously. See here's the problem: the original Teen Titan series could do drama but one of it's main draws was it's humor and sense of fun. Yeah it had great action but really so do a lot of DC shows right now. It wasn't what made me a TT fan and really if the characters are going to be the same and just look different and get put in funnier situations, I'm fine with that. I can understand the fans who liked the serious drama being miffed about this but really this is something I don't mind doing something different and being it's own thing since I think we got enough from the original so why not twist things around a bit?
Man now I"m up to 7,000+ posts. Hard to believe it took me 8 something years to get that many. How long will it take me to get another thousand? Guess you're going to have to keep reading what I have to say to find out.... I hope you've been doing that anyway as I feed off the attention.
