I have to disagree with you on something. I saw your conversation with Dawnboy and you said that after the TR vs TP episodes got postponed that the villains weren't evil anymore. Could you explain that? I agree with you that Hunter J and Team Galactic worked well as evil villains in DP but I thought Team Rocket has remained evil throughout Best Wishes and Best Wishes 2.
Being a plot device isn't a bad thing when it comes to the League or Grand Festival rivals honestly. We have had that since Ritchie in Kanto. The only time a main character won the League or Grand Festival was Zoey. You may not like that but I found a lot of the League and Grand Festival rivals enjoyable.
Yeah, I like the original Teen Titans too and I was disappointed when I heard it was a comedy show and not a superhero show like the original was. I will check out the first few episodes to see how it goes. I love Robin, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Starfire and Raven so seeing them again should be awesome!
Yeah, I don't get all the hate for BW honestly. Well, actually I kind of do. It broke away from the formula and tried something different and fans didn't appreciate it. It also seems a major issue is Ash not being as competent as he was in DP which I suppose makes sense but I don't mind it. If people would accept the fact that this is supposed to be more of a reboot, I think they would appreciate it more. Like I said, BW isn't my favorite saga but it is far from bad in my opinion.
As for YJ and GL, I heard that they cancelled them because CN is only allowed to have 2 DC shows on at a time when it comes to their scheduling and since Teen Titans Go! and the new Batman show are coming out, they need to make room for them.
