    This episode is not a great way to introduce the show. The show seems more about character focus and relationships than generic situations like "evil team vs. good team".

    If anyone is planning on only watching one episode of the series, tune in next week and watch "Sisters", a much better episode of the show than this.

    This isn't BAD, it's just not great, and has some glaring flaws (Robin's magical reappearance, and I won't go further than that since it's spoiler territory).

    Another heads up...

    As with the "Twilight" talkback, do *not* post play-by-play impressions for this episode. If you must do so, then join the AIM (AOL Instant Messanger) chatroom (name: Teen Titans Final Exam). See ya there..

    Just out of curiousity, why isn't that allowed? (Toonami, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, & the WBC all allow it)

    I have a question. Why are they not starting with episode #1? Call me picky, but I usually like to see things from the beginning even if the show doesn't follow a continuing storyline.

    I am going to see this with really low expectations, i am a 27 year old engineer so i know this is not targeted for me so dont flame me if i come back with negative response once the episode ends.

    I'm going to go on record early as saying that I really dig "Final Exam." In fact, I may be the only person here who actually did (or will) enjoy "Final Exam" more than "Sisters."

    It's a strange thing for me to admit. When a Batman or Justice League episode has weak characters or simplistic conflict or flat plots, I'm usually in here bellyaching with the best of them, and rolling my eyes at the way that flash and sizzle can't make up for these story deficiencies. But "Final Exam" has such cartoony exuberance that it doesn't matter; complaining about a weak story here is like complaining about weak stories in a Popeye or a Tom & Jerry. The sheer artistry not only carries it, it renders the whole idea of "story" beside the point. "Sisters" has more of what people look for in a superhero action show, and I actually think it gets a little bit in the way -- you wonder if you're supposed to take its shallow plot seriously. I had no such doubts about "Final Exam," which is a pure carb rush.

    So, that's going to be me, lonely at the top, giving the show 5 stars.

    It was probably a good idea to post the "no flame" reminder. Things could get nasty in here, I have the idea that people will ethier love this or hate it. I'm going in with really low expectations so on't be disapointed if it's bad but will be surpised if it's good.

    Just thirty minutes!

    I believe this was the third episode produced but intended to be the pilot episode.
