Doom Patrol is not doomed!
July 22nd, 2019 under Brendan Fraser, DC Comics, Kaley Cuoco, Matt Bomer. [ Comments: none ]

It was a busy weekend for DC Universe and they gave us plenty to be excited about.

First off, the news that made me the happiest, Doom Patrol will be back for a second season next year. Not only will it stream on DC Universe, but you will also be able to watch it on their new service HBO Max with the Gossip Girl spinoff. When it comes to our favorite anti-heroes, how can you not love a superhero show that has sex, cursing and a mass orgasm? The only thing I don’t want back next season is the huge cockroach. If they do bring him back then they need to do me a positive and give us more Matt Bomer topless scenes! Did I mention that he and Brendan Fraser are in it? It truly is the perfect show.

That was the only big story to come out from them at San Diego Comic-Com. Titans, the show Doom Patrol spun off of, will debut new episodes starting on September 26th. Young Justice: Outsiders will be back for a fourth season.

Finally, Harley Quinn gets animated and the cartoon, that stars Kaley Cuoco in the title character, is not for kids. A cartoon just for us also debuts this fall!


Doom Patrol tells us Crazy Jane’s story and how she has a part in the Rapture!
March 15th, 2019 under Brendan Fraser, DC Comics, Matt Bomer. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, when we left off of Doom Patrol it was literally the end of the World. Today, the episode, streaming now on DC Universe, picks up with Rapture making people disappear.

That is not the only story in the fifth episode. We also learn more about Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) and her time in the institution. They tortured her, but they could not break her. While they tried their hardest to do just that, they wound up creating a new personality for her. One that plays a part in the current apocalypse.

I cannot tell you much more, but I can tell you Disco also plays a part in it too. Who knew that was the Devil’s music and not heavy metal?

Another big part of this episode is The Captain (Timothy Dalton) is back. How will Doom Patrol react to his reappearance? One of them will walk out and another will turn on him.

However, they have a much bigger problem. You know, like the end of the World. Can these dysfunctional superheroes save the day?

A fun feature integrated into this episode is that the writers are starting to have a lot more fun and referencing the show itself. That is what makes this series so enjoyable to watch, they understand you cannot take a show with superheroes who are misfits too seriously. If you do, then it would be like almost all the other comic book movies and shows. Those are boring, DP is exciting. Plus, they use the S and F words! What more do you need to watch? Therefore, go to the streaming site and subscribe. Did I mention Matt Bomer and Brendan Fraser are also part of the patrol?


Watch Matt Bomer transform into his Doom Patrol unwrapped persona
March 8th, 2019 under DC Comics, Matt Bomer. [ Comments: none ]

Matt Bomer plays Mr. Negative on DC Universe’s Doom Patrol. His character flew into negative energy and that caused him to crash his plane. The plane caught fire with him in it and he was left with burns on his body from his head down to his toes.

On last Friday’s episode, we got to see what he looked like shortly after the crash and before he covered his whole body up with bandages like a mummy or the Invisible Man. Let’s just say it was not a pretty site for the pretty actor.

How do you make such an attractive man, unattractive? He showed us in a time-lapse video what the makeup department had to do to achieve that transformation. It looks easy in a short video, but in reality, it was not.

Bomer wrote this message with the video, “Wanted to give a special shoutout to the incredible effects makeup team on @doompatroldcu. This takes anywhere from 4 to 5 hours and I actually look forward to spending the time with this team- they’re that fun. Thank you #travispates #billjohnson #toddwatson #derekgarcia #donanddebra and everyone else who helped out this season.”

Then the actor wanted to let us know that there is a new episode of the show up now on the streaming site. There is a reason why they are called Doom Patrol and this episode sets that up with when two new people crash their compound.

If you are not watching Doom Patrol, then you are missing out on the best new superhero show since Smallville. It is for us adults who want superheroes to do adult things if you know what I mean.

I have seen a lot of critics compare this to Umbrella Academy, and Doom Patrol is so much better. I did not even make it to episode four of the Netflix show. When it comes to the latter, I cannot wait to watch the next episode. Why do we have to wait a week?


Can Doom Patrol survive a road trip?
March 1st, 2019 under DC Comics, Matt Bomer. [ Comments: none ]

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.


Doom Patrol is far from being doomed!
February 22nd, 2019 under Brendan Fraser, DC Comics, Matt Bomer. [ Comments: none ]

I have to start off by saying I am so over comic book shows and movies. Because of that, I was thinking of skipping Doom Patrol. Then I saw some reviews about the show that is on DC Universe, and I am like I so have to check this out. As soon as I heard some cursing and saw a sex scene, I knew this was the superhero show I was going to love. And I do.

The first episode was posted last week, so I am late to the game. Since it is a streaming site, you can watch the first two episodes now. It is the type of show you want to watch after a long work week or actually anytime.

The series starts off with Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser) a married race car driver with a kid who is sleeping with the maid. Not exactly perfect, far from it. He gets into a car crash and his brain is put into a robot making him Robotman.

Niles Caulder (Dalton, Timothy Dalton), also known as The Chief, is a top medical scientist who gives hopeless people “a miracle”. He also protects them from themselves and the outside world by keeping them in his house at a remote location.

Back to Cliff, he is the newest member of The Chief’s home, even though he has been there for years. The Chief needs to get him used to his new body which is very stiff. He will not be able to do it alone, so he will need help from his other residents.

Rita Farr (April Bowlby) is an actress from the ’50s. She had an accident on set that turns her into Elasti-Woman because she can stretch her body. Because she was an act-tress, she is so over her new home and the people in it.

Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer) was a dashing pilot living a double life. He wanted to hide from his troubles so he went flying as much as possible. One day he flies into negative energy and his plane crashes. He survives, but his whole body suffered catastrophic burns. Not only that, he now shoots out energy from his chest which is why we call the man covered in bandages Negative Man.

Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) got her name because she lives up to it. She has 64 different personalities and each comes with its own ability. You know never know who she is going to be so it would be wise to watch what you say around.

Robotman and her hit it off even though she says some pretty awful sh!t to him. Actually, they all hit it off. So swell, that they decide to leave their compound and go into town. It starts off innocent enough until one of them loses their control and the town is pretty much destroyed. Proving to them they should stay home.

Which catches us up to the second episode. They are in what is left in town and one of them goes missing. Luckily, we get a new member to join their patrol just in time. Victor Stone (Joivan Wade) was doing an experiment when something goes horribly wrong. The explosion kills his mom and half of him. You see Cyborg is now half human and half machine.

He is not like the others and he will inspire them to be more than what they are. Activating the Doom Patrol in ways they have never be activated before. Is that a good thing? We will find out every Friday.

This is kind of the Deadpool of group superheroes. Yes I know he is Marvel and they are DC, but it is the best comparison I can come up with. Don’t get at mad me. Be happy I at least I knew they were from two different universes. That is good for me.

Back to Doom Patrol, as you can tell this is unlike everything else in the genre. Which is great because it so needed a changeup. Therefore, if you are looking for something fun to watch, look no further than this show. So look it up now!
