Follow TV Tropes
Well, I made a review of the series as a whole, so I might as well do a specific episode. And what better episode than the crossover with Young Justice? When I first saw the preview clips for this episode, I dreaded it. My immediate reaction was, "Oh Lord. The writers are going to find yet another way to antagonize fans who hate the show." Now that I've seen the full episode, I don't have the same feeling now.
The episode basically goes like this: After being called out for their silliness by Young Justice, the Titans decide to get serious. While it makes them more effective heroes, the drama between the team causes them to disband. Essentially, the episode openly mocks he idea of superheroes being too serious or too silly.
Here are the episode's Pros:
Here are the episode's Cons:
Overall Analysis: While it has a lot of unexplored potential, this is probably one of the better episodes of the show and a good Author's Saving Throw to fans of Young Justice and the old show.
I agree, could've been done better. I was so happy when Aqualad gave his "Reason You Suck" Speech, and the the fight scenes were really awesome for a change. I was mixed about the humor, it got a bit annoying when they kept putting "Serious" at the start of every sentence. The artwork was really disturbing as well, especially Raven who looks like an undead ghoul. But I appreciate the attempt of the Author's Saving Throw. It's a pity they'll go back to their old silliness right afterwards.
Well, that's what happens when you have a show where Status Quo Is God.
Yep, though it would be nice if future episodes could follow this one, so that references to the old series aren't insulting.

How well does it match the trope?
