I like that its gritty. And it’s pretty violent. I think the show is catered to a more adult.
Adult demographic ***
I fu****g love it!
Yeah, what he f-ing said! America, f yeah!
I think the brutality might be a notch too high for a super hero story. I get that the show is intended for adults. That said the Titans are heroes not anti-heroes. They should be just as focused if not more focused on saving folks as they are on beating up/immolating bad guys. So far we’ve seen several side characters killed in rather horrific fashion simply because they had the misfortune of bumping into the Titans.
These characters aren’t Lobo/Punisher/Red Hood and their actions and stories should show us that. If the show makers eased off the edginess throttle just a tab I would find myself enjoying the show even more.
I don’t have a problem with it lol it’s 2018, most people drop f bombs in regular conversations it’s really not that serious to me
I love the darkness and violence. Usually I’m fine with the F bombs. But in the Jason Todd episode they seemed a little bit forced at times. Not needed to convince me that Jason Todd is a little rough around the edges. I can figure that out without the F Bombs.
The titans aren’t heroes yet though except Dick was. The brutality has been part of story arcs and characters are already evolving. For all we know, the tone will be tweaked again(it’s been balanced and different since Doom Patrol)in season 2 to reflect them as a superhero team. This season is origins and building a foundation.
The first episodes were slow. And the Doom Patrol was disappointing and gross. That woman who stretched was so gross. But since then the show has kicked ass. Love it!!
Honestly, I’m fine with the R rated show. The violence just shows what type of the world they live in. I’m also kind of fine with the f bombs. I feel it’s a bit overused. It’s a bit unnatural because it’s used every few lines. But overall I’m fine with it
I was worried that the show was going to be dark just so it could claim to be dark. This show luckily is just good, and while I am annoyed that they keep using it to springboard other shows, the plot is still good. And Brenton kills it as Dick.
I wish they toned it down a bit so my son could watch.
…oh well my wife and I love it
I give zero &#%^$ about swearing on film. I’ve been around a few decades now and I live in a large metropolitan city and from what I can tell, non-swearing is pretty rare. It is way more unrealistic to portray people who dont swear than to include cursing. I’ve never seen anyone in reality percieved swearing to be grim or dark behavior, so why is it considered some edgy dark take on things when it most aligns with reality.
Also, can someone tell me what the worst case scenario is for child to hear a bad word? Will they turn “grim” and start hurling insulting language at everyone? If people are protecting their children from words, what do they do when that kid goes to a public school? I was a kid once and the most horrible things I would hear were at school from other kids. It feels like someone from the 1920s wagging their finger at DC from the past with no knowledge of how times have changed.
