    I miss the giant George Perez 80's hair. That was Starfire to me

    No. "Should have" is NOT applicable here. "Could have"? Sure. "Should have?" Not so much.

    Yeah, that actually looks like a cosplay outfit. Maybe they could make fun of it by having them go to a convention.

    I would have liked the green eyes, but I think she looks awesome in that promo photo.

    The outfit in the cosplay picture does not fit the style of the show at all. Honestly, I don't really see any way that anything like what Starfire has worn in the comics would ever work in the style of Titans.

    Having given up on Season 1 pretty early, I've just been watching the rest of it since Season 2 looks like it's going to be less about psychotic mass murdering "heroes" and more like actual Titans, and I realised; Batman, Green Arrow and Lex Luthor all live in same house. Hell, I think it was the X-Mansion as well...

    Yes it was -- apparently as far back as the Generation X TV movie in the '90s, even before the feature films used it.

    EW.com has an article up previewing season 2.
    I'm not going to read it yet, but I still thought it might be of interest to you guys.
    OK I'll confess, I'm also posting it here so I can finding without having to add it my never ending bookmarks.

    I just finished watching season 1 a few days ago. Looking forward to season 2!

    I am in a similar place. I finished watching a DVD set from the library yesterday. I am tempted to subscribe finally.

    Though this probably plays better in a binge watch than waiting weekly. I appreciate taking the time to explore the different characters. But some characters and storylines barely made any progress in 11 episodes. First season could have been condensed in half as many episodes with little difference.

    The first season is also rather dark. The next season may be different given all the characters that are being added to the cast.

    I love that it's dark and angsty and want more of the same from season 2.

    Although after The Boys, it might as well be Adam West Batman...

    Huh. I'm going to have to watch the first episode of Season 2 again to decide if I liked it or not. It definitely felt rushed, unfinished even.

    But I'm interested enough in the new stuff they have set up to stick around.

    And, not for the first time, I love their take on Jason Todd.

    Wasn’t this shot as the season 1 Finale and held back? They sat on it a long time. I wonder if it changed from what was originally shot.

    Going to code this just because it's the first day...

    Well, the first half feels like an edited down finale to last year. I have no idea if it's old footage or new, but it definitely could have aired last season to wrap up the plot. But everything after the group parts ways following Trigon's defeat has to be new, as it features the new cast members for Bruce and Slade. Unless, I suppose, they were already cast last year and kept quiet. But if Glen had already been cast, why not use him in what became the finale of the first season?

    I wish I could remember where I read it but there is a good article (somewhere) detailing the major reediting and restructuring that went into Season 1 that turned it from an ensemble piece into a Dick Grayson series. Which included turning the penultimate episode into a finale.

    It's pretty obvious that the first two thirds of the episode is a cut-down version of the first seasons's original finale, while the last third is all new footage that's basically just setting up season 2. I mean, Rachel noticeably ages and her hair turns into a wig between scenes. I kinda wish they just stuck with the original plane and wrap up season 1 properly.
    It feels so weird to have an anti-climactic beginning...

    Watched episode 3, Origins, today.
    It was nice to see some of the cast start to come together with Rachel, Dick, and Kory all joining forces. I was kind of expecting Dick and Kory to already know each other, so I was surprised when he didn't. I'm very curious why she is so interested in Rachel and this prophecy about her.
    Some interesting new reveals about Rachel's father and why so many people are after her.
    Do we eventually get an explanation about who/what the Nuclear Family are? We got a reference to building them, but I'm not sure if that was literal or figurative.
    I'm curious how Gar comes into play in the bigger story, since so far we haven't seen any connection between him and anyone else, besides him and Rachel meeting at the skating rink.
    Oh, and I'm still not seeing the over the top dark and grittyness some people keep accusing it of. Other than the more violent fights, and the swearing, it really hasn't been that far off from the tone of the Arrowverse when it goes darker. It's definitely not The Boys, that's for sure.

    Have we gotten any characters who have appeared in Titans and the Arrowverse shows besides Deathstroke?

    Several. Arrow has featured Billy Wintergreen, Joe Wilson (the bad-guy version), and Konstantin Kovar, as well as a version of Ravager (though it was Isabel Rochev instead of Rose Wilson). Supergirl featured Mercy Graves, who'll reportedly be a recurring Titans character this season. And both universes had or will have a Doctor Light, though with different individuals using the name.

    And Batman/Bruce exists in the Arrowverse, though he hasn't appeared yet.

    Wow, I didn't realize there had been that many.
    I wonder if we'll ever get a Kid Flash on Titans? I had assumed they didn't have one because of The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, but apparently they aren't going out of their way to avoid characters from the Arrowverse.
