r/TitansTV Dec 06 '21

Still the worst fandom of all time. All you people do is sit on this subreddit and bitching whine about the show yet is trajectory has gone up, not down. (Unlike a lot of other shows.) And stop comparing titans to Doom Patrol, they are very different shows!! Discussion

TV critics don't matter.

They watch only a few episodes from the show and make a judgement. That means if the first half of the season is strong and the second half is terrible, the season will still be rated highly.

I'd rather trust people who actually watch the full show. There are massive issues with the writing in Titans. Fans whine about it for a reason.

Most people are fan of the characters and want to see them being used better

u/dripbangwinkle Dec 07 '21

They rate the premieres

u/Astonishdreams Dec 07 '21

Exactly, these reviews are based on the first three episodes. Not the entire season.

u/habitual_wanderer Dec 07 '21

Rotten Tomatoes is not a reputable source anymore.....

u/MagmaAscending Dec 07 '21

Ah yes, the 100% rated season three. We’re talking about the same season that devoted an entire episode to a character (Lady Vic) and she never showed up again and did actions that were so superfluous to the overall story that the entire episode could’ve been cut and nothing would’ve changed. We’re talking about the same season that had Bruce almost commit suicide only for Donna to randomly show up and save him and it never got brought up again. We’re talking about the same season that despite having Rose and Jericho as major players last season, completely write them off and never even mention where they went. We’re talking about the same season that forces Dick to yet again deal with his daddy issues and have the exact same arc for the third season in a row while Gar struggles to get more than 3 lines per episode.

100% on Rotten Tomatoes, everyone. Get the fuck out of here. The critics reviewed the first 3 episodes of each season and the first 3 episodes of season 3 were universally seen as a dramatic improvement before it self destructed in the back half of the season just like season 2 did

Season 1 (the best season) and it has the lowest ratings.. I do not understand these critics.

I am not a hater of the show,and I enjoyed S3 despite it's flaws.. but i am pretty sure this was the worst season.

10

u/Professional_Web2198 Kory Anders Dec 06 '21

Exactly, these critics are rather hard to believe because season 3 was far from good.

u/InsertUsernameHere32 Dec 06 '21

Your right; It isn’t. I’m watching it right now. OP is completely wrong on how RT works especially for television. Most of these ratings are put out before even half of the season airs. Press are usually given 3 episodes in advance (the first 3 of this season was the first time in the show we saw the team work well together and actually had good moments) and their rating is based on that alone. That is why S3 is higher rates than the others. These RT ratings for tv are made far before the season fully airs.

u/ManicPixieOldMaid Dec 07 '21

Season 1 probably has the lowest ratings because there weren't as many reviews total because Titans was on the limited streaming service. Once it moved to HBO max it got renewed interest and a larger sample size for reviews. That's my guess anyway.

u/MarvelPugs Beast Boy Dec 07 '21

S1 was the worst season imi

u/Jaded_Sheepherder_33 Dec 06 '21

That's your opinion. In every show or movie has flaws.

u/redjc Dec 06 '21

Donna's ridiculous death and Robin's prison stint are two of the worst executed storylines in recent memory (and that was season 2).

u/[deleted] Dec 06 '21

Who can tell me where the the fuck Rose and Jericho went after season 2? Its like the writers forgot they existed.

u/rocxymania Dec 07 '21

It was mentioned somewhere in season 3 that rose stayed in San Francisco.

u/A_M_D1126 Dec 06 '21 edited Dec 06 '21

This is an interesting perspective. I thought shows with the “worst fandom” don’t get renewed for four seasons. Love for DC’s Titans and disdain for the way it’s executed don’t have to be mutually exclusive. The people on this subreddit bring up good points on why it’s a good show and how it can be improved and I think the Doom Patrol comparison makes sense because there have been people that have written for both shows. While you perceive it as bitching, I perceive it as a lot of people wishing the shit they like to watch and enjoy was even better, not necessarily perfect but better. There is more nuance to the criticisms from this group that go beyond your personal issue with them. For instance, I could dismiss you as a troll trying to stir up stuff, but you make a good point with the image you shared. I think rotten tomatoes isn’t the best unless they show the audience scores along side it, but you made a valuable contribution to the conversation.

u/Tidus17 Beast Boy Dec 06 '21

You should probably mention you're only showing critic ratings. If you add user ratings, it's a somewhat different picture:

  • Season 1: critics 78% / users 70%
  • Season 2: critics 81% / users 63%
  • Season 3: critics 100% / users 77%

u/Jaded_Sheepherder_33 Dec 06 '21

User ratings don't matter, because the people who make user reviews don't have to prove that they've actually watched the show.

u/Aramis14 Dec 06 '21

So, let's make the show for the critics, there's the only ones whose opinion matters, sure...

u/Dee_Dubya_IV Dec 06 '21

The writing in the show sucks. It gets stuck in the same cycle every season with no development for its characters or growth. Who the hell reviewed Season 3 on rotten tomatoes? Monkeys?

-1

u/Jaded_Sheepherder_33 Dec 06 '21

Stop watching it then. Nobody is forcing you.

u/Dee_Dubya_IV Dec 06 '21

I did. Halfway through season 3. Show sucks.

u/Jaded_Sheepherder_33 Dec 06 '21

Ok? That's your opinion. 🤷🏾

I dont think complaining gonna stop sorry

u/Jaded_Sheepherder_33 Dec 06 '21

Ok. Then y'all will continue to be the worst fandom of all time.

u/Professional_Web2198 Kory Anders Dec 06 '21

And what's your explanation for Dick being a terribly written character this season huh?

What about the plot holes, the weird storylines or lack thereof (Gar and Connor), the underused characters. The titans acting nothing like a family??

u/West-Cardiologist180 Dick Grayson Dec 06 '21 Gold

Or the most realistic.

u/pifflepaffle_ Dec 06 '21

Perhaps we have treated the show harshly, but I believe it is because we expect much from it. The show had a great start and much potential, yet since then the quality has declined. We criticize the show because of our expectations, and we compare it to Doom Patrol because we want Titans to be as good.

u/Jaded_Sheepherder_33 Dec 06 '21

You don't criticize the show, you b**** like a bunch of little girls.

u/pifflepaffle_ Dec 06 '21

I assume you find no flaw with the show?

u/Jaded_Sheepherder_33 Dec 06 '21

I never said that.

u/pifflepaffle_ Dec 06 '21

Maybe it has come down to making fun of the show, but it's rooted in the criticism and mistakes constantly made by the show.

u/Jaded_Sheepherder_33 Dec 06 '21

Then stop watching it.

2

u/pifflepaffle_ Dec 07 '21

That's not the solution. I don't watch to hate on it, I watch because I genuinely like the characters, premise, and promise. I have hope that the writers can see our criticism and learn from it.

u/[deleted] Dec 06 '21

How can you sit there and claim this show actually got better? The writing is shit. It was shit before also, but it is currently shit as well.

Stop watching it then?

Why you watching?To give an opinion no one wants or needs

u/[deleted] Dec 06 '21 edited Dec 06 '21

I've put my hours in watching the show so my opinion of it it just as valid as yours. If you don't want to hear it because it conflicts with yours then you can kindly fuck off. I like the show, despite its flaws but to blindly give the writers a pass is fanboy bullshit. There are plot lines that they just seemingly forgot about... things happen that make zero sense even when suspending disbelief. I don't think I'm in the minority here in feeling this way either.

u/AltruisticBanana9926 Dec 06 '21

All you’re here for is to fuck the show off for no reason.This season was pretty bad I get it but people like y’all have been shitting on this show since season 1 so back off me tf.You can’t handle my opinion oh well better cry about it

u/[deleted] Dec 06 '21

You sound pretty upset. Way more upset than anyone who has complained about this show. Maybe you should go for a walk or talk to someone?

I do talk to people I’m just sick and tired of people complaining about the show.Comparing two different shows you don’t understand but whatever

I don’t have a tough life thanks for your fake concern.I don’t like when people are rude about a show and they still watch so back off

Don't do anything irrational. Everyone here cares about you and wants you to live. I'm sure someone in your family would be upset if you were gone. Its just a tv show.

u/Puzzleheaded_Chard_2 Dec 07 '21

I’ve been defending the show since day one. Love every season

u/FlickzyFromYoutube Dec 07 '21

When the critics rate it bad they automatically become irrelevant, when the critics rate it good we're supposed to think they're good? This isn't some gold show that is getting hated for no reason, they are taking popular IP's and just butchering them, if they expect us to pay and spend time watching this mess we deserve to talk about it

u/TismoJones Dec 06 '21

I think season 2 is my favorite so far. Loved this version of deathstroke.

u/Arrow_Flash626 Dec 06 '21

100% agree. All the subs for superhero shows just bash on the show about every little thing. Glad to see someone else who agrees that the show isnt that bad

u/Yupwing1 Dec 06 '21

This subreddit is pretty bad for how bad they talk the show. I haven't seen the 3rd season as I am not in the US (it'll be here soon tho) but man this subreddit makes it sound like it's a dead show. Likely I am still waiting to watch it to make my own opinion. But rhe last time I saw something like this was on Boruto fandoms.
