The Titans season 2 premiere was pretty underwhelming, though I really enjoyed most of season 1, the end of that storyline was pretty anti-climactic.  I really liked the mystery and the cinematic feel of S1 and I hope they don't lose that in S2.  They solved a lot of the mystery and seem to have set up a more episodic base at the end of the premiere.  But I have heard Superboy is going to show up so yay.

Superboy has already shown up in season 1.  Along with Krypto

I must have missed that

Go watch the after-credits tag on the Season 1 finale.

That said - Not sure if it is a good idea to bring Superboy in if this season is about Deathstroke.  Realistically speaking, probably Raven and Starfire (maybe even Wondergirl) all should make paste out of him - but superboy is redonkulous vs Deathstroke.

The Titans season 2 premiere was pretty underwhelming, though I really enjoyed most of season 1, the end of that storyline was pretty anti-climactic.  I really liked the mystery and the cinematic feel of S1 and I hope they don't lose that in S2.  They solved a lot of the mystery and seem to have set up a more episodic base at the end of the premiere.  But I have heard Superboy is going to show up so yay.

Also - I totally agree about this season opener.  What a disappointment.  A key ingredient to superhero shows are it's villains, and they wasted the potential of an awesome villain here.  If there was one thing that made Season 1 worth it, it was the build up to Trigon, and this ep. made hash of all of that.  I have some theories as to why they did it, but unless they pay it off with an awesome season 2, then I think I am out on this show.

It must have been a higher up decision because some of the other villains were so great.

Has anyone watched Another Life on Netflix? Sci-fi show starring Starbuck. I haven't yet. It has terrible reviews on IMDb. Id love for someone to tell me it's worth watching just to have another sci-fi show to binge but not unless someone can tell me it's worth the time.

I watched the first two episodes.  It's pretty terrible.  Character motivations made no logical sense but to further the plot, science was terrible, and I started rooting for most of the crew to die.

I couldn't get through the pilot.  The crew was like a bunch of reality TV teenagers.

Dark, the German Netflix show.

Moody, sci-fi/fantasy about time travel and the end of the world.  Someone invents a time machine that can travel between 33 years into the past or future.  So, it takes place in 1921, 1954, 1987, 2020, and 2053.  I'm pretty sure at least one character is his own grandfather and there's a book about time travel that wrote itself, which they actually address.  Its dark and moody and darned good but time travel is pretty hard to pull of in fiction and it I'm afraid it will end up like Lost.

Have you watched season 2? the time travel really starts messing with your head.

Dark season 1 was really good. By the time Dark season 2 came out I forgot all the characters and complex story lines. It's been hard getting back into it. But that's a lot like most of these shows. The crap you forget...

Oh yeah, you need a flowchart to watch it fully. But I just tried to enjoy every scene for itself and the multiple 'aha!' moments from realising who people were and how it fitted together

Doom Patrol, finally finished S1.  Consistently good but rarely great.  But I really like that it's a differnt take on Superhero shows, with most episodes being character driven and very few big action sequences (though the few that happen are pretty great).  It's worth watching if you like superhero shows but are burned out by The Flash
