Is there a problem with removing it yourself? Just curious.I don't see that anywhere on my timeline.....
EDIT: Oh, I guess that when I was editing, that section wasn't pasting properly from my clipboard. If you're pasting this in your own document, you might just have to remove the stuff to the left of the (***) on those two lines.
I'm happy the way it is.I have a question involving the Doom Patrol timecodes.
Do you think it's too complicated to subtract the recap and intro from the overall run time, for those who want to cross reference the timecodes while watching the show?
Honestly, I can't remember if DIrishB did that with the Netflix shows or not.
Well, seeing how at one point the Doom Patrol series was depicted as a spin-off, the continuity errors can be worked around and Doom Patrol actually references Titans (Superboy/ Krypto and Raven), I say it's fine. They are in the same DC world, meaning they probably share events, just they don't care about that episode in particular as they prefer to be creative. Regardless, it feels wrong to seperate the timelines.Also I'm noticing some continuity errors between Titans and Doom Patrol.
1.) Doom Manor is said to be on Danny Street in Titans. Was Danny just hanging by there when the hunters took notice of the manor's location? To throw off Mr. Nobody's scent?
2.) How could Rita have been in an institution for decades (20 years at least?) if she was already with Niles in the same decade she was mutated? Did she check herself into one after?Mento read her thoughts without her consent
3.) One I already knew about from the beginning, but the Chief in Titans and the one in Doom Patrol can't possibly be the same individual. But I read a theory on Reddit about the Chief in Titans potentially being the illegitimate son of Niles and Arani (the old lover of Niles from the old Doom Patrol team). Which makes sense I guess...
I don't want to risk separating the two into different timelines based on the fact that the Doom Patrol showrunners are aware of these contradictions and confirmed not too long ago that they're still set in the same world; albeit different "continuities". Whatever that means.
Other than the recast, why can't Chief be the same Chief?
In Titans, Robot Man states that Chief "just learnt to walk again".Both Chiefs not only look nothing alike and have totally different accents, but he gets unparalyzed somehow then paralyzed again... Yeah that's too messy IMO.
Personally, I subscribe to the fan theory that the Chief in Titans is the son of Timothy Dalton's Chief; maybe he takes over for his father while he's away or something along those lines. I'd kind of find it more believable because it would add some development to the (former) relationship between Chief and Arani.
I'll be honest, I understand DC isn't concerned about inter-connectivity too much. I'm all for creative freedom, not trying to come across as a continuity nag. At the same time, if it's in the same world like it was said to be, I hope this gets explained at some point. It doesn't have to be perfect, it's DC after all. They can come up with anything to fix continuity errors and make it work somehow in some 'weird' way.

It's canonical that he couldn't walk, regained his legs, couldn't walk again. I don't think a recast is too much of a big deal. I think they just used the Titans episode as a backdoor pilot, and were willing to recast to get the actor they needed.
