Everything I've seen and read about Titans makes me not want to watch it. I am kind of interested in DC Universe, as I grew up reading Batman and Green Lantern comics (alongside my true comics loves of Spider-Man and Hellblazer), but until they get a flagship show that actually reviews well I'll pass. I don't even want to waste the free trial on checking out Titans.

I love Titans.  The 80s book was the first book I collected, and I started to work in a comic book shop when the prestige format book was published just for the discounts. For years my online handle was Trigon. I was all in for this new DC channel.  So I am here to tell you that you made the right decision.

The good news is that Doom Patrol looks like it will knock it out of the park.

I think Doom Patrol looks shaky as fuck.

Titans is kind of a morbid fascination for me.

Titans.

JFC this show. it has an episode that it's character-building focusing on one character and tying them into the greater narrative it's piling on so much new information opening up new venues probably the best episode ever. But it should never ever have been a season finale. Only it was.

Jesus Fucking Christ?

I agree btw. The show has flashes of brilliance and does not fuck around teasing at maybe a shared universe. Characters straight up say they have met Superman for example.
But it loses itself in its rush to appeal to angry 15 year old boys.
It COULD work. But it just kinda doesnt but I just keep watching.
And yeah. How the fuck is this a finale? This is a mid season break episode at best.

Anyone see "Reign of Supermen?"
Not even on the Netflix list and wondering if I should just buy it?

Well Doom Patrol is a solid B, B+. It was quite enjoyable; very true to the Morrison run, but with its own twists. It went meta, but it did so in universe. It just was this kind of show I expected when I signed up for the DC universe service.

I just saw Captain Marvel. I quite liked it. I never felt there was any real jeopardy, but that wasn't what the movie was about. I did want more Coulson.

Doom Patrol has moved into a plus territory with the last two episodes. Hopefully I can keep it up because is really knocking it out of the park. If you like absurdism and dadaism this is what you need to be watching.

After watching Us for the second time, I realised one problem I have with Endgame: where the hell is Lupita from the poster and cast list?
