The following Blu-ray was provided to me by Warner Brothers for review. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
Titans, the second best show on the DC Streaming Service (sorry but Doom Patrol is tops in my book) had an amazing first season and now its back with a vengeance for its second season. Can it possibly live up to where the first season began. In short yes. DC has done a masterful job casting and creating these characters and with top notch action sequences blended with humor it’s a cant miss show for comic book fans, or simply fans or action shows. It appeals to very broad audience much like the Arrowverse shows they have on the CW.
Titans Season 2 pick up immediately where season two ended with Trigon having Dick under his control and ready to take over the world. Luckily the Titans are able to take care of this and wrap it all up with time to spare in episode one. I have to say that was the only thing that disappointed me this season. It was such a short wrap up it didn’t need to be a cliffhanger pick up. Season one could have had a longer last episode to simply end the story if it was not planned to go through season two.
That’s ok though because season 2 sees Dick visit Bruce Wayne and head back with Raven, Jason Todd, and Garr to Seattle and reform the Titans team. We flash forward 3 months and Dick and his group rescue a young girl named Rose Wilson, who as it turns out tis Deathstrokes daughter. Meanwhile Dr Light has escaped prison and is going after the Titans for revenge leading to Hawk, Dove, and Donna and Kory return to Seattle to help the rest of the group. Thus forming an almost larger that life group of Titans both Past and present.
The season then follows Deathstroke as he plans on getting his revenge against the Titans, Dick in particular as he blames them for the death of his son Jericho. Through this story we are not only introduced to Deathstroke, and his children Jericho and Rose but we also meet Superboy, Krypto, Blackfire and more. The Storyline is a bit convoluted at times in the sense it has a few too many twists that end up making it seem like its contradicting itself, but I can say if you stick with it, it all does manage to come together in the end. And yes, the only spoiler I will give you Dick does finally become Nightwing towards the end of the season.
The action is fantastic. Its on par with a big budget movie, as are the special effects. This may technically be a television show but its leaps and bounds better looking than any network or even Netflix show out there. This is just a great action packed ride from the first episode to the last. I cannot stress how well its made, and how great the chemistry is between all the actors. DC has got a winning formula with their live action shows and animated films. I really hope as the streaming service grows they start making more original shows as the ones they have are so great.
If you don’t have the streaming service fear not as Warner Brother has released Titans Season 2 on Blu-ray. I have to say the transfer is remarkable. The show is for the most part dark and the picture is incredible. The score for this show is very well done and fits the pace of each episode to a “T” and I must say it sounds amazing coming from your surround sound. Everything is put together great and this is a great way to sit down and binge watch a show that you need to see.
I loved Season 2 as much as I did Season 1, Probably more in fact. For that reason I must stress that even if your not familiar with these characters pick this one up today. You will love it.
Overall 4 out of 5 Stars!
