Teen Titans - The Complete Fourth Season (DC Comics Kids Collection) (2003) Review
(More customer reviews)Let me begin by admitting that although I am an avid animation collector, I never considered myself much of a Teen Titans fan. I appreciated the source material but the animated series was a bit too campy and certainly too anime-heavy.
That said, I took a chance on the complete 4th season on account of the great reviews it has been receiving. Having just completed the season last night, I must express my extreme satisfaction to this collection and the series as a whole.
As others have said, the show's producers and writers have found their rhythm! The 4th season relies less upon Japanese-style animation and more on wonderful plots and character development. The series is pretty evenly mixed between funny romps and a back-story of Raven facing her destiny. The balance is absolutely perfect between light-hearted adventures and disturbing apocalyptic good versus evil episodes. Also worth mentioning is the surprising return of Slade with a new look and some cool surprises.
Additionally, the lighter episodes are genuinely funny as opposed to gimmicky. Without giving too much away, the episode featuring the alien "the source" (Employee of the Month) had me laughing out loud.
As a long-time DCAU aficionado, I must confess that the 4th season of Teen Titans is so impressive that I've since ordered the earlier seasons to catch up on what I've been missing.
Included are the following episodes:
Episode 257-494 AKA Don't Touch That Dial
Cyborg the Barbarian
Employee of the Month
The End - Part 1
The End - Part 2
The End - Part 3
