Let's Get Weird: DOOM PATROL Headed Home

When DC announced it’s streaming service, something similar to Marvel’s Unlimited program, my heart soared because I was dying to have access to that comic book library. Once announced, I was even more excited. Not only was DC gracing us with a large collection of back issues, they were also putting cartoons and movies from the DC canon online.

Wait…and what else? That’s right. Original content. While reactions were lukewarm to the initial Titans trailer, the series itself was a pleasant surprise and Swamp Thing has been a horror fans dream. Then, tucked into an episode of Titans, we were introduced to the world’s weirdest superheroes. The Doom Patrol. The series has ended up becoming a personal favorite, really capturing the spirit of the comic and that dysfunctional family feel.

I will boldly claim that this show alone is worth the price of admission. Now, the show is coming to home release and we have all the deets. Get ready to get weird on October 1st!

Following the mysterious disappearance of their leader, Dr. Niles Caulder (“The Chief”), these reluctant heroes will find themselves 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. 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.

“In only its first season, the critically acclaimed series has received a 95% certified fresh rating and scored an 8 out of 10 on RottenTomatoes.com – and continues to gain momentum,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHEG Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. “Now is the time to join in on the investigation of the world’s weirdest phenomena with these unique DC Super Heroes.
