Review: Teen Titans: The Complete Fourth Season (2005) My Reviews 22 OCT 2012

The loveable, accessible to all ages but aimed at the younger viewer, Teen Titans animated television series is certainly is a lot darker than normal with the show’s 13 episode long fourth season outing, this time focusing on a far more evil and powerful entity that is tied to Raven’s destiny, and who is for all intent and purposes, completely unstoppable and most likely the bringer of the end of the world as we know it!

Despite this rather dark premise for the season, the writers go out of their way to balance the run with a run of much lighter, more comedic episodes in the middle, resulting in a series that once again manages to cater to a much wider audience than just its core target demographic (i.e. young kids) and in the process manage to be a completely fun and action-packed outing that everyone ought to be able to enjoy and probably pull a good number of laughs in the process as well.

All the same goofy looking characters are brought back into the mix once again (i.e. Robin, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Raven and Starfire), and the wonderfully fun, loose and often super-deformed, cutesy anime-inspired, animation style is retained, making for a visually light show, that funnily enough works across the rather wide spectrum of both serious and silly episodes that the season throws at us.

Great voice acting mixed up with a good sound track and the same energetic plus insanely cute theme song as always, adds the final bits to what is yet again a totally worthwhile and fun animated series to pick up and watch with the kids.

Review: Teen Titans – The Complete Third Season (2004) My Reviews 13 AUG 2012

There is virtually nothing that you can dislike about the insanely fun, targeted at young kids, Teen Titans, who return for their third 13 part season, this time ditching the manipulative Slade as lead bad guy and instead replacing him with the hypnotic, cult leader Brother Blood instead!

Terra who was introduced in the last season is dropped and the team is returned to the core of level-headed leader Robin, the adorable and likeable Starfire, the cool techno wizard Cyborg, the enigmatic and grouchy Raven, and of course the over the top, ball of silliness that is Beast Boy.

Stories are again an equal mix of all out action and over the top silliness, where pretty much anything goes, as seen in particular by the groovy Mad Mod and out of the hat Amazing Mumbo episodes. In-addition to the variety of villains, both old and new, that get tossed at us during the run, we also get treated in the latter part of the series with the introduction of the new Titans East franchise, consisting of Bumblebee, Speedy, Aqualad, and the super fast Guatemalan twins Más y Menos.

With just the right mix of action and slapstick comedy, combined with a great voice cast, fun music, and the loose but fun animation style that often dips into the super deformed sort of stuff one usually only encounters on Japanese anime shows, Teen Titans is an absolute delight that is sure to be loved by your kids, and if you are a comic book fan, will probably entertain you in the process of watching it with them as well!

Review: Teen Titans – The Complete Second Season (2004) My Reviews 12 JUL 2012

The insanely catchy and fun opening theme by Puffy AmiYumi is back, heralding of course the return of the awesomely fun superheroes for kids television series, Teen Titans!

The second season of Warner Bros. Animation’s Teen Titans consists of 13 episodes (just like the first season), and was aired back in 2004, making it pretty old already.

Following on from the first season, this new outing kicks off with the introduction of the new and sixth Teen Titan, Terra, who has the ability to manipulate rock (although she only hangs around for the first episode or two, then disappearing for most of the remainder of season, before returning right before the end to kick off the big finale arc).

As you might imagine, everyone that made up the team in the first season is back for this second run, giving us the adorable and likeable Starfire, the level-headed but headstrong Robin, the cool techno wizard Cyborg, the enigmatic and grouchy Raven, and of course the over the top, ball of silliness that is Beast Boy.

The series also brings back Slade (Deathstroke) as the principle manipulator behind the scenes, and after an enjoyable and action-packed two thirds of the episodes are done, the show really kicks into high gear, shifting to an even heavier amount of action and drama as Slade shows his hand and things get pretty serious!

With just the right mix of action and slapstick comedy, combined with the loose but fun animation style that often dips into the super deformed sort of stuff one usually only encounters on Japanese anime shows, Teen Titans is an absolute delight that is sure to be loved by your kids, and if you are a comic book fan, will probably entertain you in the process of watching it with them as well.

Light hearted (but with plenty of butt kicking superhero action), and with a great voice cast, fun music and silly but enjoyable animation, Teen Titans shouldn’t disappoint anyone in their target market – i.e. your youngsters! :)
