Video+Story: TNMT’s kinda spoiler-free review of Doom Patrol EP3 on DC Universe

DC Universe pushed out Doom Patrol episode 3 and hoo boy… It keeps getting weirder.  It is weird in a good way, though.

We are still wondering just what Cyborg is doing in this story. We are considering Cyborg the Jar-Jar Binks of Doom Patrol.

In this episode more is revealed about Larry Trainor’s relationship with the entity (Negative Man) inside him. We also get a little glimpse of the connection between the Chief and Eric Morden (Mr. Nobody).

Most importantly we see the Evil Nazi mastermind that created Mr. Nobody. He has turned his skill into a theme park where prospective villains can come and pay to receive the super power they’d like to have.

We are still liking the show, just not Cyborg. Again, Cyborg seems like he is forced into the story. Nothing about having Cyborg in Doom Patrol feels right. Unfortunately, it looks like we are stuck with him at least for most of Season One. Somebody please tell Batman to call him up to the Justice League so we don’t have to keep seeing him.

Have you been watching Doom Patrol? Are you liking the weirdness like us or do you not care for the series? Let us know in the comments.

Video: Doom Patrol episode 2 on DC Universe kinda spoiler free review

Doom Patrol is a new series on the DC Universe streaming service. They are a misfit group of reluctant heroes. The first episode was released February 15, 2019. It was a good episode even with having to explain all the characters backstories.

Episode 2 started right where episode 1 left off. They introduced a new character to the mix, Cyborg. Most people will recognize him from the Justice League movie. Him being part of the Doom Patrol team feels kinda forced to us. He is not a good fit on this team. The whole dynamic of the team is changed with him in the picture.

Even with us not liking the addition of Cyborg, episode 2 was still really solid. The narration by Alan Tudyk is spot-on. There are a lot of subtle little things he says that are meta, but if you aren’t paying close attention you may miss them.

So far, Doom Patrol has been worth the monthly subscription price to DC Universe. That doesn’t take into account the other great shows and all the comics that are available on this service. Titans and Young Justice are definitely must watch shows as well. You don’t have to take our word for it, take advantage of the one week trial subscription and see for yourself (just remember to stop the recurring billing if you don’t want to continue past the free trial).

We highly recommend Doom Patrol. Only 2 episodes in and we are already hooked. Give it a watch and let us know what you think in the comments.

Video+Info: TNTM’s Doom Patrol Episode 1 on DC Universe kinda spoiler-free review

Doom Patrol has been around since the 1960’s yet they aren’t part of the mainstream DC Universe of characters. Their line-up has changed over the years with Robotman (Cliff Steele) being the only character in every iteration.

They are a group of super-powered misfits whose “gifts” caused them alienation and trauma. They were given the moniker of the “World’s Strangest Heroes” and they wore the mantle well. At the end of their original series run they were all killed off. But as you know, no one stays dead in the comics… except Uncle Ben.

When they announced that Doom Patrol would be one of the new exclusive series for DC Universe I was a bit skeptical. This is a team of unsung and sparsely used characters from DC’s line-up. Then I saw the early pictures of what Robotman looked like and I moved from skepticism to outright disbelief that the show would work.

Nevertheless, I gave the first episode a chance because I desperately wanted to see some new DC characters break into the mainstream. After finishing the first episode I decided to binge-marathon the whole series. I was disappointed when I discovered that DC Universe was releasing the episodes one each week rather than all at once like Netflix. Oh, the unfairness of it all.

DC Universe has a potential hit on their hands with Doom Patrol. The voice acting of Brendan Fraser was much better than I expected. He gave emotion to a non-moving robot face. Alan Tudyk was… well, he was Alan Tudyk. I really enjoy watching him bring characters to life. You might also recognize an old James Bond actor in Doom Patrol. Timothy Dalton plays the man who brings them all together, the Chief.

If you haven’t seen the first episode of Doom Patrol yet, you should. The first episode does a lot of character introduction and it still keeps you wanting to see more. If the rest of the season is just as good, I will be renewing my DC Universe membership.

Do you agree with us that Doom Patrol is gonna be a hit for DC Universe? Or do you think we’ve lost our mind saying it is good? Let us know in the comments.
