    Oh wow, this thread is old. Fooled me thought it was new, two whole pages, it must be super popular.

    I was referring to the genre, not this show. Hard to gauge it's popularity because it's on DC Universe app and maybe Netflix (haven't seen episodes in our's yet so torrents for me).

    So this finally dropped on Netflix Canada. Just starting episode six, and I kind of like it. Stellar it's not, but I'm enjoying it with lowered expectations.

    I'd still rather give this a shot than go back to watching Arrow.

    Just started watching this show, I'm enjoying it.

    Not sure why it has so many negative reviews.

    I liked it for the most part.

    They did the Batman angle well.

    One of the most interesting portrayals of Robin I've seen.

    Yeah it was okay. Watched it a few weeks ago. Going in with low expectations it was fine, but definitely could have been better.

    Hope we see more of Donna Troy next season. Actor for Robin did a great job I think.

    Edit: Guess I should specify which Robin but both did good jobs I think. Jason was definitely a cocky little ***** haha

    I believe it is on Netflix in Canada (and so probably everywhere but USA).

    I think it could benefit from not trying to be so violent, but yeah, it's nice to see a little more grown up take on the group.

    The Doom Patrol shows some potential as well. Wouldn't it be a hoot if DCs online shows turned out better than the movies?

    I personally enjoy the violence and probably wouldn’t watch it if they dumbed that aspect down to make it more kid friendly.

    It doesn't need to be "kid friendly" but I think they've gone unnecessarily overboard with the violence with Dick Grayson. The Justice League and Teen Titans animated films weren't quite aimed at kids but they didn't go overboard with violence either. They were "adult" enough.

    I felt that the reactions of Hawk and Dove and others had to be legitimately horrified by what Dick had become so I’m glad they didn’t sugarcoat it.

    It's not that he's messed up but I felt some of it wasn't necessary to show so visually. And I really don't like Hawk and Dove. I kept falling asleep in both of their episodes. The least interesting characters in the show.

    I liked Dove. A lot.

    Is Hawk the dude who played Aquaman on Smallville?
