Watch The First Episode of DC Universe’s “Doom Patrol” Here
DC Universe just gave you a super-powered gift, as they have released the pilot episode of their newest show “Doom Patrol” to the public for free. If you were not sure about how you would feel about the series, I recommend giving it a watch, and let us know what you think about in the comments section.
Check out the episode below:
I really enjoyed the first episode of the show, and think it has captured the essence of the comics that it’s trying to follow. Brendan Fraser is a better Robotman than I ever expected, and Alan Tudyk’s role in the show (without giving away spoilers) is a dose of perfect casting.
Here is DC’s official synopsis of the series:
DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: 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), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (TIMOTHY DALTON).
Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence.
Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
