A self-indulgent two parter where the Titans find out they are just a TV show and meet the people who work on it... then they try to make it themselves and realize how hard it is. A little like "The Fourth Wall" but a little like those old Marvel comics where the character met their creator(s). Could be funny. Guaranteed a lot of in-jokes.

I always like how this show tackles its haters head-on. I do think a lot of people get overly upset about this series, likely because of its connection to the 2003 series. Nostalgia can really make people act hostile in certain situations. I understand that this show isn't what a lot of fans would've liked, but I always get curious why people freak out about it so much.

Anyway, enough of that. While I must admit the second half of season three and what we've seen from season four haven't exactly impressed me besides a few episodes (ex. Arms Race with Legs, Operation Dude Rescue, TTG v PPG, Riding the Dragon, Shrimps and Prime Rib).
IndieWire has another clip with Aaron Horvath & Michael Jelenic from the 200th episode party (which isn't part of the DC All Access story).
It does seem like the show is running out of ideas and some more action-oriented episodes would be nice, but I am glad to hear they are focusing on some more educational episodes like Finally A Lesson, which was still amusing yet informative (probably confusing for most kids' but still interesting).

I'm intrigued that they don't feel like they're running out of ideas. Perhaps it's the execution that I'm not enjoying as much.

The 200th episode sounds like it will be the usual fun of the series and I'm guessing it will be episode 199 and 200 since it's a two parter. I find it interested how involved in the series Cartoon Network seems to be since it's a Warner Bros Animation show rather than a CN original series.

I'm reminded of when Bat-mite popped into the DC Comics offices and a handful of other DCU/Earth-Prime cross-overs back when E-P was still supposed to be a slightly fictionalized version of our own Earth (before the creation of Superboy-Prime).

News from Wonder Con are probably still forthcoming, but looking through the #TeenTitansGo hashtag on Twitter for comments from people attending the panel, they screened an episode titled "Oringins", and announced a 4-part sequel to "The Night Begins To Shine", apparently featuring Cee Lo Green and Fall Out Boy.

Cool. I liked The Night Begins to Shine episode. I just hope they don't overdo it with these four episodes. I think only one episode was needed if they wanted to make a follow-up episode.

Ah, cool to get some guest stars for that follow-up. I recall last year they said Cyborg gets trapped in the song so the other TT try to figure out how to save him so they get musicians of different genres to cover the song.

I didn't know about that. If that's the case, it sounds like it wouldn't be overdone, but instead showcasing multiple takes on the song.

From Greg Cipes' Facebook this appears to be a recording of the Wonder Con panel. It's 31 minutes long but I haven't listened to all of it yet.

Edit: Some of the stuff at the panel:
- The episode screened showed different origins for the Titans (Raven was bitten by a bird)
- They talk about the upcoming episodes "Easter Creeps" (with Tooth Fairy voiced by Khary Payton and Easter Bunny by Scott Menville) and "Hand Zombie"
- A 4-part sequel to "The Night Begins To Shine" featuring covers of the song by Cee Lo Green and Fall Out Boy
- Pretty Pretty Pegasus will return
- An episode trying to teach kids about quantum physics
- If they added new characters to the show they would consider Terra or Rose Wilson
- They might try doing their own version of The Judas Contract, but they have something special in mind for Slade Wilson

You mean as members of the TT?

That would be a pretty funny episode. Or something like Robin tries to infiltrate Terra, Rose, and Blackfire's team to figure their evil plans as Red X but realizes they're a cooler team than the TT. Like "In and Out" almost.

They might try doing their own version of The Judas Contract
Nah. That's aw-ight.
