DC Universe has released the first episode of Doom Patrol to view for free on YouTube in celebration of its season finale. There is a caveat: it will only be available to watch through May 23, with the finale airing on May 24.
I highly recommend watching it if you haven’t seen it before. In fact, I highly recommend the entire show, which is a mixture of pathos, character study, and balls to the wall insanity. Pretty much like the comic, actually.
The first episode has some rough spots, but they are all eventually smoothed out by the following episodes, which provide in-depth motivations and backstories for each character, along with surprisingly faithful adaptations of Grant Morrison’s storylines. Including: preventing the Cult of the Unwritten Book from summoning the Decreator, helping Danny the Street fight the Bureau of Normalcy, and evading the Beard Hunter and his vendetta against facial hair. Yes, all of those are real.
