I can’t do wal’s. Never been able to. Think my phone just isn’t able to. I have an iPad & appletv, but it’s probably something simple that I can’t see cuz I suck at tech. I’ll figure it out someday. I’m doing Constantines now, then Deathstroke. Can’t wait to discuss tho.
WAL’s just means we all hit play on a video at the same time and then on another device we talk about it in the forums while watching it.
I know. Mine won’t allow me to. I can hit play but then I’d have to wait til after to discuss. It jams my phone up if I’m on DCU on appletv & phone at the same time. Always been that way. I also can’t reach links. If someone posts a link, even on the site itself, I can’t access it. After new format I can see pics, b4 that I could see others pics but not my own. Probably a setting I do or don’t have on/off. I’m sure I’ll figure it out someday.
Storywise, it seems that they have taken some liberties (Slade having an eyepatch before the incident with his son, Joseph being a lot younger and with a different outcome after the “incident”, Rose being a part of H.I.V.E., and the Wilsons only having one son, etc.) but the art style, audio, and voice work are pleasant and I think it will be a great animated series!
Saw and it was awesome. Not what I’m use to with him as I know him best through rebirth and his tv and movie appearances. So I may be based off different runs or they’re making it there own.
Either way it was great. Awesome animation some great voices and just something new and cool. Definitely want Deathstroke to get more of his own stuff. I always enjoy him.
Excellent idea! I was thinking the very same thing a few days ago.
I did wonder when he was having the experiment why he already had his eye patch. A lot of what they’re doing is pretty faithful to Slade, this along with Titans are the closet things we’ve had in animation and live action to his true arc. They’ve both taken liberties to suit whatever story they’re telling. I’m just glad this has been made! I was surprised it was 37 mins long and not short episodes like the others. We should arrange a watch along for next weeks episode?
I’m such an idiot. I could’ve done Wal with Deathstroke cuz it wasn’t on the app. Every time I’ve ever been asked to do one it’s been a show etc. on the app itself. Yeah, I absolutely wasn’t thinking that it was on the CW app & on my fire stick, so I could’ve done that. I battled harder than Deathstroke to try to keep my eyes open & didn’t make it anyway. I’m going to watch today. I watched both Constantines, then eyes were heavy. Must’ve woke up & started Deathstroke over at least 10 x’s b4 I finally tapped out.
Ha ha! I have evenings like that when I’m trying to watch stuff, too.
Apple TV has a specific and separate CWSeed app from the CW app. Don’t know if that helps.
I had heard about this, but didn’t know when they were starting it. I definitely need to check it out.
I just watched it on fire stick. Well, I’m about to literally as soon as I finish this post. I just can’t do wals when it’s something on this site. I could’ve done Deathstroke but I was so used to not being able to do them, that I wasn’t thinking it wasn’t on this site, it was on CW app. I watched the Constantines on there then fell asleep during Deathstroke. When I try wals involving shows on this site, I use my iPad & iPhone & my iPhone won’t send messages. It like jams it up somehow. I’ll have to try again soon, b/c b4 it was under a friends info, it was a bday gift from him. I renewed it under my info now so it might work. I can’t wait to watch it, let me know what u thought. The 10mins I made it thru last night were great. Think I’m really gonna like it.
It may have been a credentials based on IP address situation. Now that you have your subscription, the video and connection to DCU will be coming from the same IP address and it might allow it. A lot of streaming type services are se this method, to prohibit exactly what you were doing at the start, which was sharing credentials with someone else.
(Historically interesting is that the fundamental technology for doing this was initially developed by the porn industry because they had a substantial issue with credential sharing. It reminds of the famous line from the CEO of Seagate, “Let’s face it the net exists for two reasons. Porn and selling you stuff.” It’s funny because the axiom is fundamentally true.)
That’s what I’m thinking. As far as the IP address & you’re absolutely correct about the second paragraph, & that’s hilarious . Hilarious & a fact.
I agree about the liberties. I’m so glad they made it too, @stuartbeausire1985! And with those longer episodes, it’s even better! I would love a Watch Along for next week’s episode! Watch Alongs with the DCU Family are the best!
I can forgive a few liberties if they serve the story and it’s not being changed for no good reason. Rose and Slade’s eye are the main things they’ve seemed to of changed up in this so far. In Titans there was a lot changed with his family, but Slade himself was near perfect! I do find it strange that Grant has been forgot about in this and Titans, but I suppose that would take up much more story time that they don’t want to waste.
I didn’t expect Colin Salmon who’s no stranger to the DC Universe like his role as Zod in Krypton to make a really good Wintergreen.
I completely agree! I noticed that both Titans and this series have changed the family dynamic. I personally love the complexity in the comics, as it provides opportunity for lots of twists and turns. For Titans, I’m guessing it simplifies things and can allow the focus to remain on the Titans themselves. I’m curious to see what the changes in this show are allowing room for.
P. S. I also loved the portrayal of Deathstroke in Titans! After seeing that the character was the villain for season two (and not knowing much about him), I started reading Rebirth. I’m up to the latest issue now so I have to wait for the DCU monthly additions to get caught up on the series.
It was an amazing run, I’m gutted it has finished. I’m hoping they launch the book again with another writer sometime soon, and don’t leave it for years, as he needs his own book now whilst the character is so popular. I might be bias, seeing as he’s my favorite DC character.
Don’t forget which industry was instrumental in determining the winner of VHS vs. Betamax.
