Cyborg chooses to watch television programs from the '80s.

While the Titans are sitting on the couch, Cyborg comes in with VHS tapes featuring television shows from the '80s. Raven wants to watch The Golden Girls, Starfire wants to watch The Cosby Show (she replies it as "The Crosby Pudding Half Hour Show of Sweaters"), Robin wants to watch Alf, to see where the title character eats cats, and Beast Boy wants to watch Manimal, but Cyborg decides to watch The A-Team, with Starfire being happy to hear it. Cyborg tells the Titans the plot of the series.

Cyborg starts to cry after he hopelessly finds the remote gone.

While putting a tape in, Cyborg starts to turn on the TV only that the remote is missing. He searches everywhere for it, but the remote seems completely lost. When he starts to cry, Robin states there was buttons on the TV, however, but Cyborg can't find the power button bucause there was too much buttons. When Cyborg starts to cry again, Raven suggests that he should calm down. Cyborg learns that everything is more than '80s programs. Robin also suggests that the Titans should take a break from television.

The Titans hang out to take a break from television.

The Titans hang out from each other, like say things, and see a parade, but Cyborg wants to watch TV. Robin tells him that TV will only rot his brain, so they do more things other than that. He wants Beast Boy to play a keyboard, Raven to do body building, and Starfire to help the poor, while he does carpentry and Cyborg to do the cooking and make tapas, which they enjoy. However, Cyborg notices an awful smell. It was coming from Robin, Raven, Starfire, and Beast Boy, whose brains start to rot. He states that they didn't watch TV earlier, with the remote still missing, so he pretends that a cutout box is a TV. He shows them many "shows", which are actually objects seen in Titans Tower. This doesn't work, as their brains continue to be rotten.

The Titans' brains turn completely rotten, much to Cyborg's horror.

With their brains completely rotten, the Titans come close to Cyborg, until a TV person kicks them. The TV finds the remote with the help of Cyborg, as the scene they are in was in an '80s action-crime series. In no time at all, the two return back to the tower, as as Cyborg turns on the TV the Titans, along with their brains, return back to normal. The TV and the Titans agrees to watch 18 hours of The A-Team, and as the Titans cheer for joy, the episode ends, pausing like a VHS would do.
