[ # ] Doom Patrol is far from being doomed!
February 22nd, 2019 under Brendan Fraser, DC Comics, Matt Bomer


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!
