    Things got heated on the Thanksgiving episode of the Conners. And the family wasn't even fighting over politics like most families will this Thanksgiving.
    Things get so heated that Aunt Jackie slaps the shit out of Darlene, which was a bit surprising.

    A lot of the actors are really bringing their A game for this show.

    Though the writers don't seem to know what to do with DJ and he's missing a lot. Also the fourth kid got a token mention two years ago and then basically doesn't exist. I don't even remember his name.

    Ok so that teen titans episode is basically
    Robin explaining retirement and how this team of kids at least 2 of whom will never age one is a princess and one is an heir to billions will need to save for it. So they buy an apartment complex and the tennants are all villians but they pay their rent on time and are genrally civil tom the Titans.

    The twist is the titans are shitlords about this as most episodes tend to go and they want to evict them to raise the rebt so they start beating them up when they've done nothing wrong

    I feel the show makes it clear theyre in the wrong probably not as much as other episodes though

    The Titans are tired from all the work, but are still happy about making money. But Robin informs then that the tenants are paying below market value for their apartments. Raven suggests eviction; Robin says that's illegal, but suggest making them leave on their own. The Titans attack the villains and expel them from the building, leaving their apartments available to rent. Robin says that in 30 years, they'll have equity to pay for their old people medications, They receive the Cool Rollerblading Dudes as their first tenants.

    In an epilogue, Robin suggests the viewer visit a library or talk to a local realtor about investing in rental property.

    See this is what concerns me. Because Im willing to entertain the idea that its a satire, although not a very good one, but knowing the age group its for there is no way that the audience isn't siding with the TT's. The tenants are LITERALLY SUPER-VILLAINS.

    I've only seen clips of the show, but I've seen Teen Titans Go! To the Movies and Teen Titans vs Teen Titans Go! and yeah, they're definitely never portrayed as good superheroes or idols

    But given the target audience, yeah it won't translate

    Yeah, I don't wanna be a Chicken Little or anything, but it seems... Real bad? That the first time a child might hear the phrase "rent control" is to associate it with supervillains? And that children might be encouraged to invest in real estate?

    But what do I know, I'm just a small-town pizza lawyer

    Man, I was really digging Sneaky Pete until they decided to cold open an episode with the first two Indigenous characters featured on the show being a murderee and a murderer respectively, and
    the third being a drug dealer who also hired said murderer to do the murder in order to avoid jail time

    The only Teen Titans Go! thing I've watched was Teen Titans Go to the Movies, and I was kind of delighted during the brief moments of dark humour, and how it routinely portrayed the Titans as idiots who often do more harm than good. In that context, the Titans torturing their own tenants and going against everything their supposed to stand for does seem pretty funny to me.

    But I also recognise that it's supposed to be for kids, who may not get that the Titans are supposed to be the bad guys in the situation, especially with the fact that the tenants are all supervillains. The fact that the Titans are rewarded for their actions is especially bad.

    Teen Titans Go certainly ignores its audience and makes all kinds of inappropriate jokes. Raven traps one of their enemies in a pocket dimension with no escape and then also uses that same dimension to dump all of their garbage in. That person survives by eating their trash for what is implied to be a very long time. The rent control thing is... hmm. It's sort of unclear if the writers are making the joke of really in depth financial advice in a kid's show and it's funny because that's not a good topic for a kid's show OR doing a very shade filled satire of anti-poor evil capitalist tactics. If it's the former, they screwed up big time. If it's the latter, they needed to be more clear it was a satire of an evil practice.

    I wonder if there's a commentary available for that episode.

    No, but I can tell you that because of jokes in cartoons I thought "rent control" was some kind of scam until I was 30 because it is ALWAYS portrayed as something people are doing to get away with something

    That's bad

    I'm not going to say that they necessarily get better about things there, but I will say that Dockery continues to be a character (a bad dude, but a fleshed out character) throughout the second season as well, and isn't just a one-off instance here.

    Also one of the big heists of the second season is partially about Mohegan Sun, one of the local Native American casinos. Which once again is the pendulum kind of swinging both ways with representation, I suppose, but I know at least as someone who grew up near that area, it was kind of nice to see represented as an actual part of things.

    I think it's one of those easy jokes that people have just been conditioned to laugh at, despite not actually understanding it. It's a shorthand phrase you can throw out with an eyeroll, backed with a laugh track and know it'll work, inexplicably, on a big chunk of your audience.
