Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, if kids are affected by prolonged battle scenes, Teen Titans isn't the best bet for them. In fact, little else happens in this show besides violent confrontations. Sure, it's made in the martial arts tradition, where little blood is shown, and skill in battle is rewarded. Sure, it's a super slick cartoon full of dramatic shadows, gothic images and amazing graphics. Sure, your kid is going to want to watch it. But be aware that this show is all about the fight scenes.
Is It Any Good?
Though the male characters dominate the show, the female characters can be equally powerful. They bond with their male comrades in platonic relationships, which puts them on equal footing. Yet if it takes full-out war to bring females on par with men, then perhaps this equality is not worth the consequences. Teen Titans is seductive because it looks so awesome, but, frankly, there's so much violence that parents might think twice about letting it into the home on a regular basis -- if at all.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
