DOOM PATROL

Network: DC Universe digital service, operated by Warner Bros. Digital Networks
Auspices: Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television
Order: Direct-to-Series Order, 13 Episodes
Format: One-hour drama
Executive Producers: Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, Sarah Schechter

Based on DC characters originally written and drawn by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani
Logline: DOOM PATROL is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol's members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of TITANS, DOOM PATROL will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.

Who else is watching? The first season was excellent, a great mix of acting/characters and bat-guano crazy comicbookness. The second season looks like it will be equally strong.

Is there a thread elsewhere I'm missing?

I haven't watched it yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Not sure if it's available on any streaming services I get yet, but season 1 is on DVD, so I'll see it eventually.

I watched a lot of season one. It was...weird. Unfortunately I also found it a little too dreary for my tastes. I do agree the performers were spot on.

I finally saw season 1 on DVD, which I purchased because the DP is one of my favorite Silver Age groups. It's a very good show, even though it has little in common with the Silver Age comic I loved. I haven't seen a compelling reason to subscribed to the DC Universe streaming service so far, and will probably get season 2 on DVD also.
