DOOM PATROL Gets Its First, Uh, Teaser Type Thing

What is going on here?

Well, there’s a Doom Patrol show coming, and you can’t do anything to stop it. And if we have to have this thing, I appreciate that the first teaser for it at least attempts something different. It may not be a total success, but points for trying. Check it out:

So yeah, instead of quick cuts and lots of crazy comic book action, we get a family Christmas photo introduction to the live action version of these characters. There’s, uh, Grumpy Girl and Posh Lady and Half-Robot Face and the Invisible Man and Full-Robot Face. Forgive me, it’s been a very long time since I read these comics.

As you can see in the teaser, Doom Patrol hits in February on the DC Universe streaming platform, which I have no subscription to. If the show comes out and it totally nuts, I might have to consider changing that.
