The DC Universe streaming service is continuing to deliver live action series featuring the great heroes of the DC Comics universe by delivering a second season of “Titans”. Many might remember that “Titans” was the first offering of the at the time fledgling service which was going to offer a lot of original and classic programming along with a stockpile of digital comic books. The brand new clip is below as a First Look and they even offered newbies a recap part. Take a look.

Premise: Titans focuses on a group of young superheroes who form the titular superhero team to combat evil and other perils. The first incarnation of the team to appear in the series consists of Dick Grayson, Batman’s former vigilante partner turned police detective, Kory Anders, an extraterrestrial afflicted by amnesia, Rachel Roth, an empath pursued by dangerous forces, and Garfield “Gar” Logan, a shapeshifter formerly with the Doom Patrol. In the first season, Rachel comes to Dick for protection from her pursuers, which leads to them meeting and teaming up with Kory and Gar. The team eventually learns that Rachel is being targeted by her demonic father Trigon, who seeks to enslave the world.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So in case I’ve not mentioned this before, I am not a subscriber to the DC Universe service and initially it was based on the limited devices that I could access it on and then the regular lifes bills just prevented me from even investigating further than the couple of months that I gave it a try. I did enjoy the first three episodes of “Titans” that I saw but since they were releasing them episodically week by week unlike Netflix and Amazon Prime does with one fell swoop I fell off almost immediately and didn’t look back. That means I also missed “Doom Patrol” and the already cancelled “Swamp Thing” that I believe just finished its final episode. This sucks since I love the series “New Teen Titans” as well as the other ones but I’ve said before that all of these varied streaming services are going to start working against each other and since I carry a Netflix, Hulu, HBO and Showtime account there is no room in the wallet for another service. It makes me sad because they seem to be going in a nice direction with the characters that they are bringing to the table. So I will close up now being someone who is really in the dark and ask those who are participating in the service what they thought about the trailer and are they keeping a subscription to DC Universe for the next go round. If not, what is your own rationale for the cancellation. See you next time.
