Doom Patrol Season 2 Previews Really Do Depend on How Much You Blink

With Danny in a new "tire-rific" form (let us have that one) and sex demon Shadowy Mr. Evans (Brad Brinkley) sent back to his dimension, it looks like this week's episode of DC Universe (tick… tick… tick…) and HBO Max's Doom Patrol slows the action (but not the weirdness) down a bit to do a […]

Stargirl: Brec Bassinger, Luke Wilson Talk Comic Book Counterparts

Heading into the next episode of DC Universe and The CW's Stargirl and considering how things went last week, Courtney (Brec Bassinger) and Pat (Luke Wilson) don't have a choice.

Doom Patrol Season 2 Review: Every Good Party Ends with Sex… Men

The second season of DC Universe and HBO Max's Doom Patrol continues its mission to be utterly bat-flap crazy, mixing emotional trauma and dysfunction with superpowered shenanigans in a heady mix of surreal madness and gleeful snark. Things continue to be dire in "Sex Patrol", the fourth episode of the second season. This time, the […]

A Jack the Ripper (Roger Floyd) wannabe with a god complex? A broken Danny the Brick? Our […]
