Nearly a year and a half ago, I posted a review of Season 1 of Doom Patrol. I liked the series a lot, assigning it a grade of a solid A. I was aware of a group called Doom Patrol back when I was reading DC Comics. But, I never read any of their books. […]Read more "Doom Patrol: Season 2 — a review"
With DC Universe undergoing its current implosion, the fate of some of the television shows I’ve enjoyed on that platform may be up in the air. Is that a mixed metaphor? Implosion and up in the air? The three series on my mind are Titans, Doom Patrol and, of course, this animated series, starring the […]Read more "Harley Quinn: Season 2 — a review"
I delayed writing my review of the first season of DC Universe’s Harley Quinn because I thought I had more time. The first season debuted November 29, 2019. I assumed that meant Season 2 wouldn’t come out until at least the fall of 2020. You remember that old saying about what it means when you […]Read more "Harley Quinn: Season 1 — a review"
Sometimes, things that I didn’t intend to happen occur, and, again sometimes, I go with the flow to see where events take me. This is how I got to tour the Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee (which is in a dry county, ironically). It’s how I ended up taking the tour of Graceland, in […]Read more "Nerd Premiere Twofer: Harley Quinn & The Mandalorian — a review"
I watched the final episode of the second season of DC Universe’s Titans this morning. Appropriately enough, it was titled “Nightwing,” and featured the first appearance of Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) in the Nightwing costume. The Boy Wonder has finally grown up. This season showed me that it was possible to be both impressed and […]Read more "Titans: Season 2 — a review"
I am a fan of DC Universe’s first season of Titans. I posted my proof of this here. I also didn’t mind that the first season ended at eleven episodes instead of the planned twelve, because the news accompanying this revelation was that we were getting a second season. That’s always great news with any […]Read more "Titans: Season 2 Premiere: Ep. 2.1 “Trigon” — a review"
What did I just watch? I mean, really. What was that? And why was it just so damned interesting? Doom Patrol is not the first show about unconventional superheroes, on television or at the movies. We’ve seen what kind of box office numbers Deadpool (a Rob Liefeld creation: Egads!!) is capable of generating. The Suicide […]Read more "Doom Patrol: Season 1 — a review"
Doom Patrol already had its backdoor pilot during the first season of the DC Universe series Titans, in Episode 1.4, aptly titled “Doom Patrol.” During that episode, Garfield, AKA Beast Boy, is a member of Doom Patrol and living in the mansion with them, when fate has him cross paths with Rachel, AKA Raven. […]Read more "Doom Patrol: Season 1: Episode 1.1 “Pilot”"
DC Universe is a video-on-demand service operated by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Digital Network. Titans was the first web television series offered on this streaming platform. The series was created by Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti, three names that should be familiar to DC Comics fans. Akiva Goldsman was a screenwriter […]Read more "Titans: Season 1 — a review"
