[ # ] Can Doom Patrol survive a road trip?
March 1st, 2019 under DC Comics, Matt Bomer

The third episode of Doom Patrol is up on DC Universe and it is a positive one. I say that because we get Negative Man’s back story. We find out what Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer) was like before he was taken over by negative energy and what it was like when it ruined his life.

Before we get to that, Doom Patrol gets a tip that Chief (Timothy Dalton) is in Paraguay. Therefore, Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), Elasti-Girl (April Bowlby), Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Cyborg (Joivan Wade) and Negative Man get on the school bus and embark on a road trip. As we remember, the last time they went on one, a whole city was destroyed and its inhabitants died. Will this trip go better?

This time, it is them in trouble after the negative energy gets out of Trainor and causes their bus to break down. That is when his back story starts the night before that fateful fight. He is in the back of his truck making out with his lover (Kyle Clements) and he gives Trainor an ultimatum. Trainor doesn’t take it and goes back to his wife (Julie McNiven) and sons.

Then as the episode goes on, we find out what happened after his plane crashed leaving him severely burned all over his body. We see how after being left with disfiguring burns changed him and made him the Negative Man he became

Back to our Patrol, they finally make it to Paraguay and Nazi man’s puppet show. Is Chief there? What happens when they confront him? You do not want to miss it.

I went from watching Matt Bomer on Will & Grace to him in this episode, and how he has not gotten an Emmy is beyond me. He can so effortlessly go from comedy to drama, it leaves me in awe as I watch him. Very few actors can do it as well as him.

Plus, I enjoy everyone else on this show. I love watching superheroes curse and not be perfect. That is why I get such a kick out Doom Patrol. You can tell they are having as much fun making it as we do watching it.
