Teen titans Go in my book isn't even a superhero show, it's just a bunch of dysfunctional idiots running around causing more trouble than they went to clean up. Plus I grew up with the original Teen Titans so I think it's coded in me to not like the rip off of the original series. When I first heard of it I thought Their bringing back Teen Titans?
I honestly couldn't wait, but then my hopes were dashed when I saw the first thing on it.
While the original Teen Titans was a goofy funny show, this one is just vomit. Like when a kid's had too many sweets and then they throw it back up, that's that I think this one is. My reasoning. 1, it just twisted everything. 2, there isn't a plot line...if there is I'm not seeing it. 3, they ruined the characters. Well Beast Boy and Cyborg are mainly the same, in the original show they were the comic relief of the show, but now their just loose cannons. Original Beast Boy knew how to have fun, but when something went wrong he knew how to be serious. Now the Go! one is just plain stupid. Cyborg was basically the same as Beast Boy, he was the mechanic of the team, still is.
Original Raven was troubled by her past and which side she should work towards, she was basically Yin and Yang in the same body a constant battle between good and evil. She had something that made people love her, made people feel her problems and feel like that she's a real person. Now she's just a depressed, Gothic, hermit with no back story what-so-ever. The only spell she ever uses is Azarath, Metrion, ZINTHOS! She has so many other spells she knows and other powers, but she just uses that one.
Starfire in the original series was a cheerful person you couldn't help loving her. She was like the innocent child that knew what she was doing, but didn't know the true meaning on it. Being still relatively new to Earth she didn't know or get most of the normal Earth customs causing her to come off as a weirdo or strange. She's still lovable and basically the only thing that is really the same in Go!. Except they kicked her emotions up too high making her an unreasonable time bomb.
Now don't get me started on Robin. He's the main reason I dislike the show. Lets put it like this, it's like someone took his character planning threw it in the garbage then got it back out and put it in the dishwasher in attempts to clean it. None of it worked his character planning was ruined to the point where it couldn't be saved. Robin was ruined. In the original Teen Titans he was a great leader, had his moments, but he was a overall great leader. He knew how to run the team and how to get things done with the help of his teammates. Now it's totally different. All he cares about is being the leader, showing everyone how great he is, and trying to beat his friends who have superpowers. That's not all, he's a pest something that should be snuffed out. He thinks starfire belongs solely to him and that no one can have her. His staff 'talks' to him. He's a pest. I hate the GO! version.
None of the GO! characters have development or back stories. I even think the creators of GO! didn't even bother to look or watch any of the original episodes. If you want to have a good story or show you need to give characters thought, not just slap something down without even thinking about it. You need to make people fall in love with your character, give them thought make them seem like they could actually exist in everyday life.
