I want to die.
There's more to life than this bro.
If I don't see the problem, wouldn't that mean that's your problem, since you're the one who are annoyed by them?
You were asking why people had a problem with it, I was explaining.
I'll say it again, they flanderized their characters. look at the other incarnations, none of them are TTG levels of annoying. If you don't see the problem then that's your problem.
When the hell did say the original was a satire? The original is widely recognized as the best version of the Titans ever (including the comics), especially Raven who was done so well the comic Ravens began to be based more off the cartoon.
They admitted to only taking quick glances to get an idea. Probably just to pick up character names here and there. Part of me thinks they just searched the characters from TT wiki.
That's off topic. Echoson was saying people shouldn't be offebded because it's set in a different universe. They are still different versions of the same characters, and are heavily similar to the original, but not likeable. If they completely revamped the characters like Young Justice Beast Boy, or the DCEU Cyborg, then that's a different story. But they keep referencing the old show, having "do-overs" of TT episodes but full of their silliness.
You calling me a teenager who lives in my mother's basement?
They took quick glances at episodes, but did not watch the series from start to end. They probably picked up characters along the way, but would not have known about them when they started TTG.
If it was just a lighthearted humor then I wouldn't care it was there at all, might even enjoy it a bit. But it has to be so mean-spirited and full of aesop. You know actually one episode indicated TT and TTG are in the same universes, the "Fourth Wall" one of the hater bashing episodes revealed Control Freak (from the original series) used his powers to reset reality and changed the Titans to their TTG incarnation, due to wanting to deal with a less powerful lamer version of the Titans.
It's still immensely popular among little kids under 8. They're drawn to the flashy colors, stupid songs, and BBRae.
I said they exaggerated the traits. Magnified all their unlikable aspects that were present in trace amounts. Raven is the only one who is mostly in-character of her original self, but even she's become more aggressive.
Thing with TTG is the creators never even saw the original show. They wanted to make some dumb slapstick, saw a past superhero show with a lot of success, and took those existing characters and turned it into TTG. LAZY. They have no right to use an existing franchise name if they weren't even going to do the bare minimum research on what it was about.
Well even if the figure is correct, I distinctly remember TTG has been the most viewed before.
Their personalities have been flanderized. They've taken traits from the old characters and exaggerated them to ridiculous levels. Beast Boy went from being a laidback mischievous but well meaning prankster, to a lazy jerk who cares little for others. Starfire has gone from being kind and sweet, to being nice to suicidal levels.
Because this thing shouldn't even exist. It was wrong for them to steal the name of a popular franchise and ride the reputation of it to help this slapstick gain attention. They were just lazy to not come up with new slapstick characters, like Uncle Grandpa did. Or maybe they didn't want to fail as badly as that show, so hijacked the rep.
Where did you get that figure from? If TTG isn't currently the most viewed show, it has been quite a few times in the past. The reason it airs so much is because it's a cashcow franchise of flashy colors and visual crack that kids like watching over and over. There is far more hype for TTG and it's BBRae, than AT or RS. Steven Universe is the only thing with more popularity because it's actually a decent show with far fewer haters.
Well for the present it's there, spamming all of CN's spare timeslots. TT fans would like more TT, especially after the sour note the series was left on. But instead this show is there imitating the old one but goes "we know you want the old one, but you're not getting it". Sure you can say it's a different show, but they used the same names, same voice actors, same setting, and constantly reference the old show. That cannot be ignored by OS TT fans, as TTG is just stealing the name of a successful franchise to shoehorn their own slapstick.
Yeah exactly, TTG is a satire, as in it's making fun of the original TT. It's going, TT Robin was cynical and series, so we're going to turn him into a paranoid spaz who's also a control freak.
Being in it's own universe doesn't excuse anything. It's still taking elements of the original series and scorning those who want it back.
And none of those versions of Robin have been as messed up and offensive as TTG Robin. He seems to have schizophrenia and some kind of sociopathy, which can come off as very insulting.
Right okay. I guess I can see the resemblance to Firefly.
TTG would be a lot better if it had completely new characters, because at least it wouldn't by ruining something decent that already existed. But it would still be pretty mediocre due to the slapstick humor and how mean-spirited it is.
Where did it say Stinkfly had fire based powers? His abilities should still be more or less the same.
Yeah I see the similarities to Clarence now. A bit of Gravity Falls as well.
They probably borrow animators from studios of other CN shows. The way Diamondhead rides on the sheet is just like how Iceman or Frozone does it.
The whole animation looks cheaply done. The characters lack texture and shading the previous series have.
So long as the show has a solid plot, they most likely won't go the Teen Titans Go! route.
I don't like the scream either, and the excessive cartooniness in general.
Yeah, young Ben and Gwen having a good relationship would be refreshing. Hearing "doofus" and "dweeb" over and over started getting tiring.
The animation style reminds me of Regular Show or Rick and Morty. Not very favorable at this point. The physics also feel more "cartoony". Even Omniverse got most of the physics right, aside from the animesque elements.
Gwen's voice is just ... I don't know, it just doesn't work.
I agree with Echoson about Diamondhead's ice powers.
Tara Strong is a plus though. And it is interesting how Ben and Gwen aren't bickering anymore.
At this stage I just don't know yet. But from the first impressions, it's not promising.
I overlooked the redesigns for Secret Saturdays, as Omniverse changed every character's appearance, including crossover characters.
Having said that, TGIS definitely wasn't without flaws. Ben crushing on Drew Saturday was weird and creepy. I did however enjoy seeing the matured Zak Saturday.
Well they did cross it over with Generator Rex and Secret Saturdays. Both of which were decent, as they kept the continuity of both shows.
Yeah same. Retcons is just writers being indecisive. Either didn't plan out the plots properly to begin with, or another writer disliking what a previous writer did and decided to change it on a whim.
