Doom Patrol Episode 1 Review: Pilot

Aaron Sagers Feb 15, 2019

The first episode of Doom Patrol is a fun introduction to the world's strangest heroes.

This Doom Patrol review contains spoilers.

Doom Patrol Episode 1

Superheroes are weird. Set aside the DC holy trinity, and you still have a guy whose cosmic jewelry doesn’t work on anything yellow, another who talks to fish, and a Martian. And I love it. Yet, despite the acceptable level of weirdness we have learned to embrace from the movie A-listers of Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, and now Aquaman -- and the TV headliners of The Flash and Green Arrow -- there is still The Doom Patrol. And this crew so weird they are in a League of their own.

Which is what brings us to DC Universe’s new show, a fun celebration of the super-weird that almost feels like a capes-and-tights tale via Ryan Murphy. Let’s call it American Super Story.

‘Doom Patrol’ Ep Jeremy Carver on Casting, Donkeys, and Supervillain Cockroaches

From showrunner Jeremy Carver, the TV series Doom Patrol (available to stream at DCUniverse.com) follows a team of uniquely quirky and downright odd superheroes who have all suffered a horrible accident that’s given them abilities, leaving them more anti hero than anti-hero, as they work together to find their purpose while investigating weird phenomena. After bringing together Robotman, aka Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser), Negative Man, aka Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), Elasti-Woman, aka Rita Farr (April Bowlby), and Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), mad scientist Niles Caulder, aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), mysteriously disappears and Cyborg (Joivan Wade) …

‘Doom Patrol’ Ep Tells Us Why the DC Comics Superhero Team is a Misfit ‘Justice League’

  • The Wrap
‘Doom Patrol’ Ep Tells Us Why the DC Comics Superhero Team is a Misfit ‘Justice League’
We already have The Avengers and Justice League, but none of those superhero teams feature Brendan Fraser as a robot.

Enter “Doom Patrol,” the second live-action TV series from the DC Comics-branded streaming service, DC Universe. When the series premieres on Friday, think of them as more like a “Justice League” of misfits.

“‘Doom Patrol’ is a lot more like the misfits,” Sarah Schechter, an executive producer for the series, told TheWrap. “A lot of them — not necessarily Cyborg — but a lot of them would be side characters [in other series] and [we] let them be heroes of their own story, and see all the weird, really weird, wonderful places it goes.”

Doom Patrol Review and Extended Trailer: These Characters Can't Miss

  • TVfanatic
The meaning of superhero takes on a new definition as Doom Patrol gets underway.

It features an unlikely group of individuals all brought together by the scientific genius of The Chief.

As DC Universe calls it, they're part support group, part Superhero team, and they're brought together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence – and to protect the earth from what they find.

Of course, they don't know that from the onset, and their origins can be heartbreaking. What appears to set this heroic group apart from the others currently on television is their sense of loss and need to band together as a family.

Doom Patrol Gets February Premiere Date

Once again, a well-known if untapped comic series serves as the foundation for an unexpected family drama with a helluva lot of exciting action and bursts of irresistible humor.

4-Minute Long Doom Patrol Trailer Teases The Big Premiere

DC Universe’s next live-action TV series is coming to the streaming service this Friday in the form of Doom Patrol. As you surely know, it follows a bunch of disparate superhumans – most of whom we previously met on Titans – who see their powers as curses more than gifts. And now, this new 4-minute trailer gives us a great taste of the gleefully weird, kooky tone of the show and its eclectic cast of characters.

So, who are the Doom Patrol? Well, first we have Clifford Steele/Robotman – as voiced by Brendan Fraser and played in the flesh by Jake Michaels – a former race car driver rebuilt in a mechanical body after an accident. April Bowlby, meanwhile, is Rita Farr/Elasti-Woman, a former 50s movie star whose skin turned elastic after she was infected with toxic gas. Then you have Matt Bomer, who voices – while Matthew Zuk performs – Larry Trainor/Negative Man,

‘Doom Patrol’ Trailer: DC Dives Into Misfit Heroes, Mental Health And Gay Affairs

  • Deadline
DC Universe is priming the pump one last time ahead of this Friday’s series premiere of Doom Patrol with a just-unveiled extended trailer for the off-kilter screen saga about misfit superheroes who gain their powers through affliction or tragedy.

The trailer also shows the edgy, mature nature of the DC Universe production — one of the characters, for instance, is a married military man engaged in an illicit gay relationship. That’s subplot is conveyed with a pick-up truck liaison that evokes The Right Stuff in a flyover Brokeback Mountain.

Doom Patrol is the second live-action original series for the subscription streaming site following the October premiere of Titans. The shows already have history together: Doom Patrol members made their first live-action appearance in the fourth episodes of Titans.

Doom Patrol Season 1 Review

This review is based off the series premiere.

When it was first announced that Doom Patrol would be the second live action show to debut on the DC Universe streaming service, I was admittedly quite skeptical. After all, the eponymous band of misfits aren’t exactly the most well known of comic book properties.

In a wise move made by the Powers That Be, a backdoor pilot was inserted into Titans‘ first season. As a result, I – and hopefully many other viewers – gained confidence in this endeavor. But if you’re still on the fence, you’d better believe the platform may have very well found its crown jewel. I’m aware that I’m speaking somewhat prematurely because we still have Swamp Thing and Stargirl to anticipate in 2019, but Doom Patrol has genuinely left me that impressed.

Recent memory has seen the media try to liken this show to already existing superhero franchises because,

Awesome New Doom Patrol Trailer Introduces The Team

With the Doom Patrol TV show quickly approaching its premiere on DC Universe, a new trailer has dropped online today which assembles this unconventional team and allows viewers to get a better look at them.

From what we can tell, it seems like DC’s hoping that this will be the Guardians of the Galaxy of their streaming platform. Or, to put it another way, the small-screen version of Suicide Squad. It’s even been reported previously that Diane Guerrero’s Crazy Jane has been shaped to be the Harley Quinn of the group.

Of course, she isn’t the only one who’ll be catching viewers’ attention, as we also have April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, who’s able to changer her body at will. Joivan Wade, on the other hand, will be bringing us the show’s take on Cyborg and it’ll be fascinating to see how he
