Now I know were divided about our opinions of Teen Titans Go, Some love it, some hate it. At first I didn't like it, but when the first half of the season came out on DVD, I decided to get it and give it another look.
Those who remember the comic of the classic show, there was some jokes and poking fun with the characters ALA super deformed.
The more I thought about it, TTGO reminded me of those super deformed jokes of the comic. The classic show had its funny moments too, though that was more based on the original comics. In all honesty, I think the old show could have done comedy bits ALA Teen Titans Go at the end of the episodes. Yeah the Titans aren't their usual characters, but TTGO is a comedy, it doesn't take itself seriously. (Personal fave episodes, Starfire the Terrible, Laundry Day and especially LEGS!)
There is homage to the comics and the classic show, and the comedy is also aimed not just for the younger audiences, but for us Titans fans too. Many of us can catch the in between and inside jokes, some of them even caught me by surprise because...well I tend to take my humor further, no surprise that the creators had the same idea in mind probably. XD
While I don't watch shows like adventure time or Regular Show normally, TTGO won me over. In a funny way, it renewed my appreciation for Titans and I was able to get my creative juices flowing again. Many of us do some nutzy stuff with our characters while not plotting anything serious...ever wonder if we are doing our own TTGO bits? Ironic right? Don't deny it that some of the shenanigans is similar to stunts some of us pulled in school or even college.
All in all, its a great show. I appreciate it for what it is, those who don't, well they gave it a shot, but I recommend trying again but with what I pointed out. Teen Titans is a classic of our generation, Teen Titans Go is just another incarnation of the original, aimed at everyone.
