Titans (DC Universe) – Premieres 12th October – Renewed
Based on the DC comics, this is a scf-fi drama that revolves around the Titans group of superheroes of Robin, Starfire, Raven and Beast Boy.
After witnessing her mother being murdered, Rachel Roth manages to flee her home after superpowers emerge stopping the assailant getting her. As she wanders the streets of Detroit, Rachel is lured into an alley way by someone offering to help her, and realising it’s a trap she assaults a police officer to get herself arrested.
While at the police station she meets Dick Grayson, who after a falling out with Batman and relocated and become a detective. Rachel who has seen Grayson in visions she’s had in dreams tries to convince him that she is in danger. But when Dick finally realises that she has been telling the truth finds out that she has been kidnapped while in custody.
At the same time, in Vienna Kory Anders wakes up from a car crash not knowing who she is. After finding out she was working with a gangster Kovar, she meets him only to find that there was a double cross as she was searching for a certain girl. Then before Kovar manages to shoot Kory she incinerates him with her superpowers.
Rachel in the meantime is being held captive by the person that killed her mother, and before she is attacked releases a dark version of herself that kills the man, before Dick arrives to take her to safety.
As superhero shows go this is one of the better ones, as it is easily more enjoyable and darker than the of DC based shows such as Arrow, Gotham & The Flash. And compared to the Marvel shows, only Daredevil & The Punisher have stronger opening eps. It’s well worth a watch.
