(Moving on from "did not like" to "I absolutely detested".) I absolutely detested how most of the episode played out in darkness. I absolutely detested how lifeless its world seemed. There was hardly ever anyone in frame that didn't matter to the scene. Did they fail to sign a contract with an agency that provides extras?

    Does it get better?
    I mean, it does. But, if you started at 'detested,' better still may not be your cup of tea.

    I guess I better bow out. I had a look at the episode titles and I'd rather avoid seeing all the characters named in that list presented in this miserable fashion.

    Here's hoping the next DC original works for me.

I became invested in the story, the direction was solid, and the soundtrack is awesome. I'll probably pace myself through the show, but as someone who thought the trailer was god-awful the show itself made a very good first impression.

    My only beef is that I'm concerned my Eight year old niece may watch it by accident. She loves Teen Titans Go! and I even gave her a bunch of Titans comics for Christmas, as liberal as her parents are in regards to what she watches I don't think she'd ready for this. It doesn't help that both shows were next together on the Netflix app when I watched it earlier. I would hate for her to be be afraid of her favourite superheroes.

    Yeah, I certainly hope they make use of some of those options. Even if her parents would be cool with her watching the show it doesn't hurt to vet it out a bit. I might be worried for nothing.
