Is "Titans" worth watching?
TNT will start airing the show, starting Monday July 12.
They're going to be starting with Season 1, but my understanding is that the show is already up to Season 3.
So is it worth watching?
I'm a Brenton Thwaites fans, so it would be worth watching just for him.
Although I don't want to waste my time if it sucks.

I want to love it but it’s just meh. The writing is pretty inconsistent, and the eye candy of Brenton, Curran Walters, and half naked Superboy almost make up for it, but not quite.

What character does Brenton play?
To be honest, I'm not familiar with comic book characters.
The only ones I know are Superman and Batman.

Brenton plays Batman's first Robin - Dick Grayson. The show takes place after he stops being Batman's sidekick and is now a Detective by day and does his hero gig on the side. But that's mostly the first episode and then it builds out from there.
[quote]To be honest, I'm not familiar with comic book characters.
Maybe it's better to go on with limited knowledge that way you're not judging the characterization against the comic interpretation of Dick. That was my problem when I began watching TITANS - judging this show's Dick Grayson up against the one in the comic.

I don't know who she was originally supposed to be, but that girl was BAD ASS!
I love that she speaks a whole bunch of different languages, and when she lit that hotel room on fire, that whole look was AMAZING! From how they colored her eyes, to her hair, to the fire blazing... it was unreal. I fucking loved it!
I especially loved how the disco music played in the background, everywhere she went. That was funny.
I'm still confused as to who these people are, but I'm hooked already, and they've only introduced a couple of characters.

My gods, the writing is a fucking MESS!!
They do explain why Dick Grayson is acting so very un-Grayson like, and it’s well handled, (no spoilers, but he did something REALLY bad!!) but the season two ending was some of the worst dreck I’ve ever seen on screen, and I’m counting all that CW junk. Who the fuck approved that script? So much just didn’t make any fucking SENSE!! And I’m not one to go combing through a show for plot-holes, but everyone involved should have been fired.
And the show can get so grim-dark as to be downright comic. I too loved the classic Wolfman/Perez run, but much of this show has me shaking my head. Who’s idea was this? I will say, the kid playing Beast Boy/Gar Logan, is one of my favorite parts of the show, since he gets to be one of the only characters who isn’t in an emotional tail-spin 24/7.
I will say, if anyone reading is even mildly interested: Doom Patrol, on HBOMax, is one of the best superhero shows I’ve yet seen, and is definitely, without a doubt, the fucking WEIRDEST! Always wondered what a make-out session between a giant cockroach and a giant rat would look like? The answers await if you dare!!

[quote] Vincent Kartheiser Investigated for Inappropriate Behavior on ‘Titans’ Season 3 Set
Vincent Kartheiser was the subject of multiple investigations for his behavior on the set of Season 3 of the HBO Max series “Titans,” Variety has confirmed.
Kartheiser was cast as the villain Jonathan Crane, a.k.a Scarecrow, in the third season of the DC superhero show earlier this year. According to an individual with knowledge of the situation, Kartheiser was first the subject of a complaint for what was described as making inappropriate comments onset. WBTV’s Labor Relations department investigated and found that his actions did not warrant being fired from the show but did warrant corrective action.
A second complaint was made some time later, which led WBTV to assign a representative to keep an eye on activities on the set. Due to COVID protocols, interviews were conducted virtually by the Burbank-based investigators.
Reps for WBTV declined to comment.
“Vincent Kartheiser vehemently denies the allegations,” a spokesperson for the actor said. “Warner Bros. investigated this matter and made clear to Mr. Kartheiser its expectations for behavior on the set, and he agreed to comply with their directives.”
Kartheiser is best known for his role as Pete Campbell in the critically-acclaimed AMC series “Mad Men.” His recent TV credits include “Casual” and “The Path” at Hulu, the Nat Geo miniseries “Saints & Sinners,” the Sky TV series “Das Boot, and “The OA” at Netflix. His feature credits include starring opposite Melissa Leo and Adam Scott in the Netflix feature “The Most Hated Woman in America,” which premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival.
Deadline first reported the allegations against Kartheiser.

One thing they've done right IMO is their ending of the Bruce Wayne storyline. I've been bored with the dynamic between those characters for DECADES.

As someone else said, those would have gotten him terminated. Harassing an actress on the show that he's only a guest on would have also gotten him removed. (And his scenes so far have been with men anyway.)
Another report described it as, "juvenile behavior" and inappropriate comments. He was warned the first time and after the second time, someone was placed on set to watch him.
Sounds like he made an off-color joke or comment not directed at anyone in particular and he was reprimanded for it but also whomever he said whatever he said in front of was probably okay with him staying so there wasn't a huge issue. It's like telling a sex joke at work. It's not about anyone there but it's not something that should be said at work.
