The first episode of Titans was solid, and the the second featured Hawk and Dove which both looked like cool versions of their comic book counterparts, so I was pretty excited for episode 2.
Titans is an 11-episode DC Universe series based on the characters appearing in DC Comics. It is rated TV-MA for language, violence, and blood and is appropriate for older teens and up.
Dick Greyson. Brenton Thwaites continues to nail the post-Batman Dick Greyson character both as Dick and as Robin. The romance is believable. He makes a convincing police detective. And the fight scene where Robin saves Hawk and Dove is classic!
Story. This episode presented a complete, stand-alone story that introduced several characters, their relationships, and a beginning, middle end. And it fit into the larger story.
Pacing. The pacing was very methodic. It was a little slow but didn't feel slow. It felt like every element of the story was given an appropriate amount of time to breathe and develop.
Hawk & Dove. The actor and actress cast fit the roles so well and had the appropriate chemistry with each other and with Robin. I can't wait to see their spinoff series.
I had to wait a week for the next episode.
What I Would Like to Have Seen
Being able to binge watch all the episodes in one or two sittings.
Hawk and Dove, the second episode of Titans (2018) was as good as I was hoping the series would be. The cast is perfect, the story had room to breath and develop, there was a complete story in this episode, and the action at the end was great. I give this show 5 out of 5 remotes.
