Trivia

Rita says she had been an SOE spy. During WWII the British Special Operations Executive sent secret agents behind enemy lines into Nazi occupied Europe. These real life James Bond types gathered intelligence, committed sabotage, and supported local resistance groups. See more »

Goofs

At about the 17-minute mark, just when Larry asks Dr. Clay if they have met before, there is a brief shot from behind Larry that exposes the flap the actor uses to remove the bandaged headpiece. This should have been fixed by the special effects folks in post production. See more »

Sneaking up on you

What is it about this show that makes me love almost every moment of it?

First of all, it's very true to the source material. Those of us who read the comics in the sixties recognize immediately Cliff and Larry in their iconic configurations. Rita is timeless, a snapshot of herself that is every actor's dream, except for that tendency to ooze. Crazy Jane jumps off the screen and kicks you right in the nuts. On purpose.

Greg Berlanti's crew never crowds the scene with characters all the time. We don't see every single cast member every single moment. No, we see Larry and Rita get dragged by Jane (as Flit) into what appears to be the past to confront another "Doom Patrol". We don't get time wasting exposition, rather a sequence of revealing interactions. We follow the others with "meanwhile" moments.

Seriously, dude! Get off your ample butt and get this show into your life! There aren't any angst filled moments of "Team Superhero" where the antagonist is going to steal their powers and kill everyone with a glowing dagger while a denizen of an alternate universe figures it all out!

Well, maybe a little. But they swear like sailors while they do it.
