Review

Im going to start by saying this was an utterly pointless episode. This and part one were essentially a waste of time, presumably to show us the new super group, Titans East. The other point, to show Cyborgs human self is stronger than his robotic one. Only, weve seen that in practically every single Cyborg episode weve seen.

Now, generally, I like Cyborg. Hell never be Robin, nor dare try and take his crown as the coolest Titan of all time, and I find him to be pretty cool at the best of times. But, its a simple fact; most episodes based on him have this horrible tendency to completely and utterly suck. This episode unfortunately doesnt break the rule. It underlines it.

The Titans East involvement here was completely pointless and lacked any real logic. I liked them as individuals, before I saw this episode. I wont lie, I cant stand the Spanish twins, but I really enjoyed the previous Aqualad episode, and especially enjoyed Speedys previous episode; Now, however, I dont think I could care enough to watch The Titans East again. They came across as the polar opposite of what I love about the original Titans. Dynamic, three-dimensional characters that have great chemistry with all there team mates. Can you image a Speedy and Mas Y Menos? Nope. Sounds dull, doesnt it? I realize theres a lot of potential spin off to be found here on Teen Titans, after all, its a highly rated show, which is actually watch able instead of the over hyped shows which seem to be plaguing animation at this time. If that indeed was the case here, the producers failedmiserably.

This was arguably the most boring episode of Teen Titans ever. Having already seen the following episode, Im glad its not a trend. However, I am now weary of the coming 3 part episode. Teen Titans works best as a fast action cartoon with best of comedy thrown in, with the odd complete riot episode which only this show manages to do so well. Long drawn out episodes and Teen Titans dont mesh well; especially when theyre centered on Cyborg.

I love Teen Titans. I really do. But I cant justify this as anything other than a complete waste of time.
