The premiere season of DC Universe’s Titans is over, but we’re not ready to forget it yet. Take a look at our rankings of the episodes – from the shockingly bad to the refreshingly good!

DC Universe’s first original series, Titans, debuted with plenty of controversy on its tail. Some comic readers (read: bigots) were up in arms about casting Anna Diop in the role of Starfire, while others were appalled by the SDCC trailer, where Brenton Thwaites’ Robin bald-facedly declared, ‘F*** Batman’. By the time the pilot episode finally premiered in October, fans were unsure how to feel about the show.

Titans is far removed from its comic book origins – it’s violent, with pervasive language and an over-zealous need to bask in the darker side of humanity. As someone who pretty much breathed and dreamed of this series ever since it was announced, my hopes of enjoying Titans came crashing down after the first two episodes. This was not what I had expected.

But fans’ continued trepidation was soon put at rest once the actual team was brought together. Dick Grayson, Kory Anders, Rachel Roth (Teagan Croft) and Garfield Logan (Ryan Potter) made for a good team with easy chemistry – it’s a shame it took four long episodes for them to work alongside each other.

Despite its ups, and many downs, the first season of Titans turned out to be a refreshing look at the superhero genre. It still needs improvement, which we expect from the second season that has already been announced, but after the first two episodes, honestly, the only way was up.

To gauge just how well all the episodes fared, we at Show Snob have ranked them accordingly to the quality of writing, directing and fresh takes. Everyone has their favorites, so, let us know what you think of our ranking.
