By now, I imagine that a fair amount of those reading this have had a chance to view the first episode of Titans. If so, you’re probably well aware of how it’s nowhere near as bad as some surmised it would be, as I’ve personally seen many praising it on social media. Still, any given piece of art is subject to criticism and likely won’t receive universal praise, so it’s recommended that you give the series a chance and make your own judgment.
It’s at this time when I’ll point out how most reviews you’ll see online are based on only the premiere, whereas the one I wrote on behalf of We Got This Covered encompassed the first three episodes, therefore I can attest to how what you’ll soon witness will be even better.
In my view, it’s the second episode, “Hawk and Dove,” where business really picks up. In fact, the latest promo previews that very installment, so I highly encourage you to take some time to watch the video embedded at the top of this article.
Now, I’m not entirely sure if the eponymous superhero duo is deserving of a spinoff of their own, but the connection they share to Robin’s past is a doozy, to say the least. Believe me, to say they have history with Dick Grayson is an understatement. All drama aside, you’ll likely dig seeing them kicking all kinds of ass when they suit up.
For more on “Hawk and Dove,” be sure to check out the official synopsis:
Hank Hall aka Hawk and Dawn Granger aka Dove are a pair of vigilantes, hoping to get out of the superhero business after shutting down one final criminal operation. When Dick arrives at their doorstep with Rachel, looking for a safe haven for the hunted child, his reappearance after many years causes strife between all three of them. Still traumatized over the death of her mother, Rachel struggles to trust Dick. But all their differences must be put aside when a lethal Nuclear Family, sent by The Organization, is activated with the sole purpose of capturing Rachel.
New episodes of Titans debut on Fridays on DC Universe.
