REVIEW: Titans Season 3 Episodes 1 to 3

DC’s Titans returns for a season three on HBO Max. It’s been two years since season two has ended. Season three is about the Titans moving to Gotham City as their new protector for the city and reuniting with an old friend.While a new mysterious villain on the rise who is called Red Hood and is out to control Gotham City.

PROS

Season three feels like this is the Titans show we’ve been waiting for since season one. It has a lot superhero Titan action. We get a lot of Nightwing action and as a Nightwing fan this is what I’ve been waiting for to see. Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson is by far the best live action version of the iconic character. We see Grayson become the leader and detective he’s been within the group. We see Dick Grayson wearing his heart on his sleeve and showing the amount of care he has for his Titan and Bat family.

Batman fans are going to love a lot of the Batman Easter eggs and Bat family vibes we get in the first three episodes. We see the batcave with the way it was meant to be. This show has the best batcave that I have seen and it’s What it’s supposed to be. We meet new cast member Savannah Welch who plays Barbra Gordon who is fantastic so far in season three. Her interactions with Bruce and Dick is what Bat fans would expect now that she’s the Commissioner of GCPD.

We also meet Vincent Kartheiser as Dr. Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow. He’s playing a Hannibal role for now but I’m sure the producers have big plans for him this season. We also get a short appearance of Tim Drake who is played by Jay Lycurgo. Tim Drake like in the story A lonely Place of dying is a big Batman and Robin fan. I thought Ian Glen as Bruce Wayne was a lot better as he appears to be more Dark Knight Returns Bruce Wayne. There’s some moments in that from the first episode.

Anna Diop as Starfire so far has Starfires charm and we know there’s a subplot happening with her. We don’t know what’s going on with Raven played by Teagan Croft, over at Themyscira yet. I think it’s smart not cramp a lot in right away so there’s balance.

I’ve enjoyed Hank and Dawn since Season one and episode three we get a lot of Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as Hawk and Dove. We see a lot of Superboy too but as a side character who is using his Lex Luthor brain to be inventive. Ryan Potter as Beast Boy like in season two takes a back burner in the first three episodes.

The fighting and action scene was straight out of the comic books. We get a good Nightwing fight scene in episode one. I enjoyed how the producers made Gotham City as its own character, because Gotham City is grety, dirty, and ugly. The city reminded me of Zack Snyder’s vision for Gotham City in Batman v. Superman.

CONS

There is a few nitpick. The Death and the Family and Under the Redhood stories has changed from their actual story. The decision Bruce Wayne makes and why Titans comes to Gotham City will be a mixed for some Batman fans.

I didn’t like Curran Walter’s as Red Hood he’s to young in the role as that shoulve been recast. The story plot for Blackfire has been changed as it’s no longer an invasion story. Garth can only morph into a tiger and nothing else. No mention of Rose Wilson or Jericho from season two.

OVERALL 8.5/10

Titans season three so far has been fantastic and what the show should’ve been since season one. Episode one does a good job seting the series up and by episode three she show will leave fans in a shock wanting more.
