On September 15, a day also known as Batman Day, DC Entertainment launched its DC Universe streaming platform, a service that aims to cater to those who want to become immersed in the DC world.
On October 12, the platform premiered its first original show — Titans — which to date is best known for showing a Dick Grayson grumbling, “Fuck Batman!” in a trailer released at July’s San Diego Comic-Con.
From September 15 through October 12, I’ve watched and read stuff on the platform via Apple TV as well as on my iPhone and iPad. And over the past month, my feelings about the platform have ranged from thinking it’s okay (there’s a bunch of old content on it; some of it is good) to thinking it’s the most frustrating platform in existence (the UI sucks, although it is slowly improving). Throw in watching the first episode of Titans, and I have a lot of feelings. Feelings I will share with you now.
Is the service worth the $7.99 a month (or $74.99 a year) price tag? Let’s discuss.

After premiering at New York Comic-Con last night, DC Universe released a new trailer for the first season of Titans, showing off even more of the dark, seedy series featuring Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Raven (Teagan Croft), Starfire (Anna Diop) and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter).

DC Comics fans seem to mostly be split on their excitement for the DC Universe’s first streaming series. After the first Titans trailer arrived with the famous “Fuck Batman” line spouted out of Robin’s mouth, it was clear this was going to be a dark and gritty series taking full advantage of the lack censors that network television has to worry about. However, in the first reactions following the show’s premiere at New York Comic-Con, it seems like maybe Titans takes things a bit too far. But at the same time, a good amount of reviews find potential for the series to grow.
