    I desperately want to see it but alas, not on Netflix. I'll probably use a free month to watch it once they're all out.

    I've caught up with it. It's extremely... Young Justice-y. By which I mean if you liked the previous seasons you'll like this one, and if you didn't this will almost certainly not change your mind.

    Like with Season 2, who the main cast is has changed again, with some big players from last season moving out of focus (like Wally did in S2) and some previously minor roles -- and some new faces -- becoming major (like Blue Beetle did in S2). Actually, it's to an even greater extent this time around: At least the first two seasons will still mostly about the Team, even if the precise membership changed. Outsiders can't say even that.
    I'm sure some people will be unhappy about this, but I enjoy it. I always thought the most compelling 'character' in the series was the world itself, the way it keeps shifting and progressing.

    Also, this show disproves the popular idea that it's impossible to really make tie-ins from other media canon. It's interesting what they're doing to make the comics, the video game, and the show all one big whole. They're showing it can be done and done well.

    A warning, though: The show's clearly no longer an all-ages production. Nothing *too* extreme, but there's the occasional carefully-rendered gore shot that's DEFINITELY not for the squeamish.

    If you're waiting to binge the series so that you can pay for fewer months of DCU, now's a pretty good time. The first half of the season's been released and now there's a hiatus so that the second half isn't out until summer. So it's one month now, then unsubscribe, then subscribe for one more month in the summer.

    The announcement that Titans will be available digitally at the end of the month has pretty much made up my mind about this vs Disney+. Unless something changes I'll probably just buy the shows from DCU as they become available and subscribe to Disney+.

    Is that S.T.R.I.P.E. in the background?

    How do you read the comic books? Through the app, I assume--but is the reading quality as good as comixology?

    I kinda want to troll some casual superhero fans now "Look, they're bringing Captain America's sidekick in 'Endgame'".

    It's been a few months since I saw the introduction video (which is 3 hours long, so no point in looking it up now), and since I don't have the app due to living in Europe, I'll have to go by memory, but there are different ways to read the comics through the app. One was just basically clicking page by page, clicking panel by panel, there's a slideshow mode without clicking through, etc., always with the option to zoom in.

    Along the same overall lines as the Smallville and Legends of Tomorrow versions (and presumably the comics version), but with sort of a movie-Captain America-esque "scale mail" texture. It's surprising how consistent all the live-action Stargirl costumes have been in their design, as opposed to, say, Batman or the Flash.

    Watched the first two seasons of that back in the day. It was alright but I much preferred the Green Lantern show that was on at the same time.

    Which I'd been saying.

    In Canada Doom Patrol is on CraveTV but I am not sure if you need the extension pack to get it or not (Crave is also how we get streaming HBO).
