In an interview, April Bowlby said when asked about Gar from Titans that "No! We don’t know him. It’s a completely separate thing than Titans." So this show is in a different universe than Titans. Here is the link to the whole interview which should only be read after you've seen the first episode.http://www.ksitetv.com/doom-patrol/i...s-more/189022/

As far as the premiere, I loved it. It as alternately very funny and almost made me verklempt at times. My favorites so far are Mr. Nobody, Crazy Jane, and Robotman. It was def. better than Titans debut. I def. recommend the show and cannot wait until next week.

I don't know why they went with Cyborg...now you've got two Robot Men. If they were looking to fill a diversity agenda they easily could have included Tempest or Celsius or both.


I love professional-wrestling.

I didn't like this. I'll check out episode 2 on whether I sub or not, but I didn't sub for Titans and I liked Titans.

I mean this didn't do anything at all for the first 10 minutes or so. Then it continued to not do much for the rest of the duration. Visually it's unremarkable.

If it's not too much to ask, I'd love to see the Beard Hunter.



It was the issue that sold my friends on the comic.

Re: Doom Patrol Series Discussion Thread (Tag Spoilers)

Okay I was with it until the goat at the end.

I like Jane and Cliff so far.

I don't know anything about these characters, how exactly does Rita use her powers to be helpful?

Also, are we supposed to believe that in today's age that a robot walking around town wouldn't be a rockstar? Did you see how many followers Hitch-bot had? And that was a glorified trash can.

She can stretch any part of her body, grow giant and regenerate.

I really liked it, it was funny and emotional with a great cast. I'm interested to see how they juggle all of Jane's personalities/powers and also explain why she doesn't age.

I was surprised a how much I was emotionally affected by certain scenes. Funny as hell too.

I am curious about the lack of aging of the cast as a whole. I can understand it with Rita's regenerating, Negative Man's energy being, and Robotman's a brain in a metal body, so eventually his brain will deteriorate. The thing is Jane mentioned being there in the 70's and leaving which would suggest that she wasn't young then. Why hasn't she aged? Caulder should be way older but maybe he has used science to extend his life. I imagine the aging question might be addressed at some point.
