Video+Kinda Spoiler-Free Review: Doom Patrol episode 5 on DC Universe

We are now on episode 5 of what we like to call “Why is Cyborg here”. This episode is titled Paw Patrol for a reason you will find out later.

At the end of episode 4 we saw Mr. Nobody forging a kinda truce with The Chief in order to stop the Decreator. The only reason Mr. Nobody agreed is if there is nothing left he can’t rule over it.

This episode has a lot of Crazy Jane’s Doctor Harrison persona. The Chief and Mr. Nobody go back in time and have her create a cult to oppose the Decreator. Mr. Nobody names this entity…. The Recreator. Admittedly not one for catchy names. Their plan works and the Decreator is stopped from destroying all things.

We get to see a little more about The Chief, like his relationship to Baphomet, A little more about Rita’s emotions is dealt with, Negative Man has another pity party for himself, Robot Man does a bit more swearing, and Cyborg takes up space without really contributing again.

This was not our favorite episode, but it is still a pretty good episode in comparison to other shows on TV. Doom Patrol is a weird show just like it’s namesake comic book. The characters are really starting to discover themselves and we are introduced to new characters each week. We also get to see new Crazy Jayne personalities quite a bit.

Doom Patrol has been a good series so far and there are still ten episodes left in the season. DC Universe has another hit on their hands with this show. Do you agree with us that Doom Patrol is a really good series or do you think it is just meh? Let us know in the comments.

Video: TNTM’s kinda spoiler free review for Doom Patrol Episode 4

Episode 4 of Doom Patrol drags us a little deeper into the weirdness.  Our intrepid heroes put their search for the Chief on the back burner while they help Willoughby Kipling avert the Apocalypse. Who is Willoughby Kipling?  Glad you asked.

He is a member of the Knights Templar.  He uses chaos magic to get the job done.  He has a history with the Chief which is how he ends up with the Doom Patrol.  If Willoughby gives off some Constantine vibes… that is intended.

Back when DC tried to keep Vertigo characters separate from their DC characters, Grant Morrison wanted to use Constantine in his Doom Patrol story.  DC Comics told him nope.  So he did the next best thing and invented a similar character to fit his needs.

We get a little bit more backstory on Larry Trainor/Negative Man.  We also see Rita start using her elastic stretchy powers rather than just becoming a gelatinous blob.  Another of Crazy Jane’s personalities comes out as well. The episode ends in a cliff-hanger so we will have to wait until next week to see if the Doom Patrol is able to stop the Cult of the Unwritten Book from summoning the Decreator and ending the world as we know it.

How are you liking Doom Patrol so far?  Is the weirdness enjoyable or do you find it too over the top?  Let us know in the comments.

Video: TNTM’s Review – Titans Season 1 on DC Universe streaming

The DC Universe streaming service is really hitting on all cylinders. They started out with having most of their comic book library available under the service.

Then they added all their excellent animated movies/series. Then they started making exclusive series for their streaming service. Titans was the first live action exclusive series they added.

The early trailers for Titans were a bit sketchy. There was the whole “F#@& Batman” scene from Dick Grayson that caused a huge uproar. Then there was Starfire’s questionable outfit that made her look like a streetwalker. We decided to give the streaming service a shot, mostly for the comics and animated series.

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the Titans series. If you are a DC Comics fan in the slightest you will probably like this series. The story is good, the action is good, and the costumes are believable.

There is a lot of name dropping and cameos in the first season as well. Some of them are in your face while others a little more subtle. Keep your eyes and ears open or you might miss a few of them.

If you are on the fence at all about getting the DC Universe streaming service there is a one week trial period you can use. That is how they hooked me.

Have you watched Titans? Did you enjoy the first season or did you find it meh? Let us know 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.
