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.Read more ›
...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.
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.
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.

Weak ending season to a truly excellent show. While I liked the starting of the season with the Doom Patrol storyline, the overall arc of "more heroes and more villians"... Read morePublished 2 months ago by rocketguy
