Um... I hope the Doom Patrol show looks better than that.  Also, I hope that's better than it looks.

DC. The company that is clearly betting on their opponents.

That said, by and large, people seem to like the DC shows (Supergirl and the Flash in particular).  This, however, looks like a misfire.  A dreary misfire.  No one says that their favourite thing about the Teen Titans is how unfun they are.

I have tried three of those shows that people love and... people are wrong.

I do feel that DC has managed to do well with most animated versions of their properties (both films and TV series such as the Batman Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Justice League, etc. [though NOT the exaggerated Teen Titans in anime' style]), but botches it almost any time they try live action (all the films in their connected universe, most of their TV series, possibly including this one), while Marvel is the opposite: their live action is usually superb, while their animated outings (since [i.e. 'not including'] the 1960s-era FF and Spider-Man) just are sorely lacking.

This Titans show could potentially be good, if they are trying to take it back to the feel of its original run (with these characters) in the '80s.  There were some very serious issues in those early comics, such as Raven's dad and her dark potential.  I am hoping, (though with their history with live action, not counting on) that the trailer is just trying to say, "see?  we aren't going the immature anime' style with these characters any longer!"  Hopefully that over, "see?  we are sucking all the possibility for enjoyment out of our TV properties, just like we did with our films!"

Y'know... writing that all out... with DC's track-record with live action, I think I'll take back my 'Like' on the original trailer. ;D

I post this mostly because it is created by Andy Breckman, writer of Rat Race, and I know I have some fellow Rat Race fans here. :D

Rat Race is such a great they-don't-make-'em-like-this-anymore comedy.

Honestly, if they can find a good writing crew, I'll be all for it.

I have a special fondness for ALF. Back in the '80s it was hard to find a sitcom with just a hint of actual sci-fi mixed in. (Sci-Fi comedy is still all-too-rare.) It wasn't Futurama or anything, but there were little Sci-Fi elements and an actually-consistent mythology that was good enough for me. Then, about 6 years ago, it became my middle-of-the-night baby feeding show. I'm pretty sure I've said this here before, but it's just about the perfect level of intelligence for 3:30 AM-brain.

So, heck yeah! Give him a show again. I'll check it out.

gritty reboot wherein the first episode is all about cats disappearing en masse from cities. final scene is a very blood-soaked alf screaming in rage as he chases yet another cat.

Unfortunately, I think Noah Hawley's schedule is full up.

Oh hey!  I finally found a trailer for the Denver reboot, though it looks to be more of a promo than one that generally has scenes from the show.
