My work schedule has been pretty fucking shitty with all this COVID-19 shit going around. My job in wireless is considered essential during this pandemic level event. I’ve been trying to get caught up on reviews but work and home life has been so fucking hectic that I can’t seem to find the time to watch two shows that was sent my way for review.
One of those shows is the second season of Titans. I watched the first season and the spinoff Doom Patrol earlier in the month and fucking loved them both. I took a three day weekend this passed weekend and binged season 2 before I headed back to work.
**Spoiler Alert**The season begins with Trigon getting the upper hand on the Titans and is able to fully materialize on Earth but Rachel is able to use her powers to stop him. Dick takes the new titans back to Titan Tower without telling them what happened with the original Titans and the death of Jericho, Deathstroke’s son. Now their lives are in danger as Deathstroke aims to split them up. On their journey they also have to face Camdus Labs, Lex Luther and Superman’s clone Conner, a brainwashed Gar, and Spitfire’s sister Blackfire.**Spoiler Alert**
I really enjoyed the first season of the show and before I jumped into season 2 I decided to visit the spinoff series Doom Patrol which I absolutely fucking loved. I expected season 2 to be a on the same level as the first season but it was absolutely nothing like the first season. Doom Patrol is my favorite so far but season 2 of Titans is just as fucking good if not better.
The acting in this one is absolutely perfect. I loved the characters and the cast does an amazing job bringing them to life. Some of the performances is a little cheesy but they fit the superhero theme of the film very well.
The story we get for season 2 is inconsistent but it still hold your attention. We end season 1 with the build up of Trigon but we begin season 2 with Trigon dying fairly easily before spinning into the Deathstroke storyline. We have a lot of ups and downs but we never really get that sense of doom like we do in the first season. With that being said, the introduction of all these new characters really kept you glued to the screen. Pacing aside, this season is way more entertaining than the first season.
Finally, the film does have some blood here and there but the main focus is the characters, costumes, and story. No gore for you sick fucks. Overall, Titans Season 2 is a must watch for DC fans and fans of action. We get some fun stories and different spins on heroes we all know and love. The lack of urgency does hit but not as much as you would as suspect. Check it out!
