Teen Titans has always been a strong series. This fifth and final season is a particular favorite of mine in that it features the Doom Patrol and the Brotherhood of Evil (BoE is in a number of episodes throughout the season). Now, I was not a Doom Patrol fan prior. In fact, I've never even read a Doom Patrol comic. Regardless, I simply love the characterizations of the team in the show, especially Negative Man's deadpan delivery of his lines, as is so befitting his name.

Likewise, Brain having the Hawking'esque voice is beyond perfect. Here we have a brilliant and evil mind with no body to speak of that commands immeasurable power. I love the taunting coming from Brain sounding like a late 80's computer attempting to create speech. It has a menace to it that one wouldn't expect.

With the Brotherhood of Evil, and the Doom Patrol playing such a large roll in this season, the feel of the overall story arc feels a lot more Silver Age, DC Comics than the previous seasons, which for me is a good thing. While the Slade arcs are excellent, there is something I like about two super teams duking it out, 60's style. There's a grandness to that just feels, I don't know . . . heroic in that romantic, adventure movie kind of way.

There are some other really great episodes as well. In particular, I enjoyed "Go!," a prequel episode that details not only how Starfire came to Earth, but also how the Titans originally formed their team. It's great.

DC/Marvel has had an incredible run of quality animated hero shows, going all the way back to "Batman: the Animated Series" and this season of Teen Titans delivers as well. If your looking at a review for season five, I'm going to presume you've seen the show and like it, so I am probably preaching to the choir. It's great. You know it. What else is there to know?

BTW, why in the world doesn't every DVD box set/series in universe simply list the frickin' episodes in the description? It always falls to a reviewer to actually tell prospective buyers what the heck they are considering buying. Does this strike anyone else as a bit stupid?

To that end, here's a list of episodes contained within the series:

1. Homecoming Pt 1 (Intro the Doom Patrol and the Brotherhood of Evil)
2. Homecoming Pt 2
3. Trust
4. For Real
5. Snowblind
6. Kole
7. Hide and Seek
8. Lightspeed
9. Revved Up (This one seemed REALLY odd and jarringly outside the Titans Universe, but whatever)
10. Go!
11. Calling All Titans
12. Titans Together
13. Things Change

it's the final season in the series, and they finished off great. i love the titans. BB is my favorite, and this one was pretty much chock-full of him, his origins, Terra's return and his reaction, him kicking Slade's butt alone, and a few other connected episodes where Beast Boy saved the day without the other (original) Titans around to help. of course it shows Starfire's origin, they all meet and the forming of the Titans, how Jinx (formerly of the H.I.V.E. FIVE) becomes an honorary Titan, and other little things...

...and they finished off strong, with virtually every villian any of the Titans have taken on coming after them all at once, taking the Titans (full and honorary) down one or two at a time. once again, BB came to the rescue, calling on the few remaining allies he had to help him launch a final attempt to save the others from their enemies. in the end, over 140 Titans stand against the remaining villians and come out on top. yay!!

so... basically, i was in cartoon heaven. now i'm just waiting to see exactly how they plan to bring the Judas Contract story arc of the Teen Titans to dvd. (Terra & Slade's story was already told, and if i remember correctly, that WAS the original Judas Contract in the comic books.) maybe (now that Terra and Slade are both back) the continuation of that story will pick up in the new movie (if they ever get around to doing it). either way, can't wait to find out.

Titans Go!

This is the final season of the hit "Teen Titans" show and it certainly doesn't downgrade in quality, despite what some say. On the contrary, it's one of the best seasons in my opinion. The final season's episodes mostly focus on a single threat, the Brotherhood of Evil and their aim to eliminate all Titans globally. For once episodes not only follow the main Titans but also feature other Titans as well. It's a nice change once in awhile to follow other Titan's adventures besides the main group just for new perspectives offered by other heroes.

If you liked the previous seasons of Teen Titans, then definitely pick this up. You won't be disappointed, as it's on par with the other seasons.

A couple of years ago, I wrote to Warner Bros asking them to bring back the great quality of incidental music in their cartoons, quoting Batman TAS, Superman TAS as my favourite examples.
I think they listened. The first two episodes of this season "Homecoming Part 1 & 2" feature a fantastic score of dramatic music, which complements the guest characters: The Doom Patrol. The story shows Beast Boy's connection to his former team, and his divided loyalty between the Doom Patrol and the Titans.
Doom Patrol's enemies the Brotherhood of Evil (led by M'sieur Mallah & Madam Rouge) become the main focus of the Titans for the rest of the season, which sends them on a global quest to sign up honorary Titans galore.
In "Lightspeed", you'll see Kid Flash (voiced by Michael Rosenbaum, who voiced the adult future version of the character in Justice League/Unlimited as The Flash). Lots of other guest characters familiar to DC comics including Red Star (a retooled version of the Russian Starfire from Teen Titans original comic series #18).
This is the best season, and a great way to wrap up the series. Watch out for the surprising final episode, featuring the return of ... I won't spoil it.

The final season of the Teen Titans pays off the first four seasons by looking both back [Beast Boy's first team and how the Titans came together] and forward [will the Titans endure?]all while maintaining a season-long struggle with The Brotherhood of Evil. The interplay between the Titans stays strong. Two dead foes from the past appear to be back in the coda. The staid Raven comes out of her shell when she babysits three toddler superheroes and their invisible [imaginary?] friend. Dozens of heroes and villains duke it out in the final battle. This animated series amply carries on the decade-long quality tradition begun with The Animated Batman series and Superman the Animated series although less grim in tone and incorporating more anime emotive icons. If this is your first encounter with the Teen Titans,you will find the character-driven tales satisfying - you may even want to get the first four season [if you don't already have them]to enjoy how well the entire series holds together as a cohesive whole.

Well, it's finally here; the fifth and final season of the heroic hit series "Teen Titans". For the first time on two fabulous DVDs you'll witness the final 13 episodes of the series like:

"Homecoming" - A two-parter where we meet the Doom Patrol, the team Beast Boy used to join, and the Titans help them save the day.

"For Real" - Control Freak returns, but is surprised to see the Titans East for a change. Either way, he tests the new team with some very difficult challenges.

"Revved Up" - The Titans and some of their worst enemies go head to head in a race that's totally freaky.

"Go" - It's the episode you've been waiting for. The Titans origin story where the fearless five meet each other and how they became friends by saving the town together.

"Things Change" - After winning the greatest battle of all time, Beast Boy is shocked to see some differences in the city, and what's more surprising is seeing a girl that totally looks like his old friend Terra.

A special feature in this set is seeing inside specs from the "Teen Titans Friends and Foes Gallery". Believe me, this season has a whole lot more heroes and villains than ever before !

Well, lots of good things must come to an end and this series totally proves it being the finale season and all. And another thing, the comic book series "Teen Titans GO!" has also seen its final days as well. (However, a similar series called "Tiny Titans" is currently running where you'll see younger versions of the Titans and other heroes, too.)

If you have the previous four seasons plus the feature-length movie "Trouble in Tokyo", this will be your final volume of the Titans. If you're looking for more heroes, watch the new "Ben 10 Alien Force" and "Transformers Animated" episodes currently playing on Cartoon Network. And coming soon, new shows like "Secret Saturdays" will be coming this fall in an all-new lineup on Fridays ! Hope you'll like them.

This is sadly the last installment of the Teen Titans. This is a must for Teen Titans fans! There are 2 DVD's and 13 episodes. The DVD has a "Special Features" which gives you access to Top-Secret Files from the Teen Titans : Friends and Foes Featurette Gallery.

Most episodes are very good and worth watching.

The final season and the last of my collection was in my opinion left open for perhaps a season six. However number six was never made and the complete conclusion will forever be untold.

This video was amazing! A perfect way to end a wonderful and beautiful show. You need to buy it....right now. All of the episodes were very cool, and they had several episodes with new titans, like Jinx, jericho, and Killowatt. They also have old favorites liek Speedy, Wildebeast, and Hot Spot.

Plus, this DVD has classics, like Lightspeed and the heartbreaking ending to the series, Things Change.

I think this season ties with the third as the best season of the show! I liked how the Titans were on a global war against The Brotherhood of Evil, very impressive villains! The Titans met a majority of new heroes, went on many great adventures, and learned great lessons as well! I loved seeing Raven babysit little kids, the titan least fit for the job. I liked seeing Jinx change from bad to good, and I especially liked "Titans Together"! Beast Boy lead the attack, all heroes and most of the recurring villains were in one huge epic battle, it was just awesome! The one major problem I have with this season is the episode "Things Change". It was really sad and embarrassing to see Beast Boy go through a difficult change, but I think anyone would have this feeling if they did not like change. Besides, I am glad it was not the real finale of the series. The Tokyo film was and I liked it. So I guess the series managed to redeem itself. Despite "Things Change" being a major flaw, the good stuff in the other episodes are just too darn good! I just adore it!
