I actually just finished watching it after I read your message (haven’t been keeping up with this series tbh).
I don’t want to overreact, because I still believe this is a different show and the Teen Titans Go production people have every creative right to manipulate the story however they wish. I get that it’s a kid’s comedy show and there’s no time for excessive plot lines and in-depth character development. Yeah, I understand all that.
But what they did to Terra was not ok to me. She was transformed from an anti-hero, a girl who was on the fence between good and evil - to a girl who was straight-up bitch. And hey, i like those girls too… but that’s not Terra. What’s worse is that the people who watch TTGo - they’ll hate Terra even more. Kids who’ve never seen Teen Titans will think Terra is callous and rude. It just makes me sad that this new version could alter or establish people’s opinions on one of my favorite characters.
And BBTerra, seriously??? I think it was obvious they wanted to cater to BBRae with this series. I get the intention but the execution wasn’t well thought-out. Like how she brushed him off so carelessly??? Did we all forget episode “Terra,” which happened before her apprenticeship??? Terra and Beast Boy were great friends. And Beast Boy was sweet, not clingy.
My friend Amanda suggested a caricature that would’ve been perfect. Say if Terra actually liked Beast Boy, but wanted to annihilate the Titans at the same time. Like for example, while she was robbing a bank or hanging out with Slade, she’d be texting BB and being like, “omg Slade look what Beast Boy sent me isn’t he cUTe” and then Slade would just roll his eyes and be all “STICK to THE MIssion!!1!”
or when she’s ambushing the tower, she’d wave to Beast Boy and be like, “oh hey honey~~” (while also flinging rocks at everyone) and he’d be like, “oh hi terra ♥” and the rest of the titans would just, “wtf Beast Boy!!!”
Sounds ridiculous, but I think it’s perfect for a lighthearted children’s show. It portrays Terra’s character in a less complex form. Her friendship with Beast Boy is real. Her villain arc is super interesting. We can have both things ok.
If they wanted to kick her off for the sake of BBRae, they shouldn’t have added her in. BBTerra is a good relationship, it’s a good friendship. You can’t mess that up on a show like TTGo. The safest thing would to not have her at all. Or maybe bring her up in one episode, and not have her guest star again (like Raven and the goth boy).
TTGo introduced me to them. I first heard about Terra in the TTGo series and i think shes amazing. If the original series were still on, of course I would watch it but I like how they add more comedy and just plain silly stupidness in the Go series. Do you know where I could watch the original series?
