Hug the Donkey
6 March 2019 | by d.rustSee all my reviews

PSSST! You wanna have a hit TV show? Put a donkey in it.

Sorry, there's no anthropomorphised bespectacled simian in this show. Just a bunch of average -- uh, sorry -- BELOW average superheroes trying to get their Chief off the bus.

Enter a superduper Detroit dood who's got metal in his head and various parts of his body, except possibly a detachable penis, no wait! That's another show called The Wilbur or something with some robo-romeo. He's been going around stopping bad guys ripping off people getting money out of their local ATM. Apparently he's been best buds with Niles Caulder for a while, and of course those of us who pay attention know that Caulder is the Chief. So there's your connection.

And the meantime, we got this bad guy who not only has the terrible habit of explaining his eeevil plan, has a tendency to narrate the story. So, not only is he EEEVIL, he's annoying as hell. But very edgy. We like edgy. He's also the guy with the Donkey. Worse, the donkey has deadly green tinged flatulence. Plus, the Donkster is the KEY (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). I'll say no more, say no more!

If you've been wishing the Academy would just CLOSE, it's too late: they released all their episodes in a massive seed spreading failure. Stick with the Patrol. They may be total #LUSERS, but we love 'em, just the same. Just like when you went out with that special someone in highschool, you didn't see them ALL DAY LONG FOR A WEEK! Nahh, you dated for a few months and you took your time, making your date the highlight of the week. DOOM PATROL is like that.
