The age rating truly depends on your child.

This is my favorite superhero show! Like I said in the heading the rating entirely depends on the teen. I personally would've been able to watch this at fifteen and be fine but my friend they wouldn't have been able to watch it due to the gore. It is one of my favorite show and if your child thinks they can watch the show I would let them watch it (assuming they are a teen).

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Hilarious superhero show, NOT for teens

This is one of the most hysterical superhero ive seen since deadpool but it is probably much worse than deadpool. It has tons of f bombs and gory fight scenes. I would highly recommend for EXTREMELY mature

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (11):
Kids say (8):

This fun, funny, and sometimes touching series offers a new generation of DC Universe fans the chance to get to know this group of superhero misfits. Their superhuman abilities are much less glamorous in comparison to other folks like Superman or Wonder Woman, which makes it all the more entertaining. The sometimes-quirky interactions between the flawed (and occasionally pathetic) brood are also amusing.

It's a little hard to situate this rendition of the comic within the Titans timeline, and the similarities between Marvel's X-Men and Doom Patrol are obvious. But like the Marvel franchise, the story is a fable about people having to live with, and attempting to overcome, social rejection because they're different. As a result, it's a show with a lot of heart.
