If you want a different perspective, stand on your head.

nothing official yet...seems like the southern states are screwing with their film tax credits though.

Honestly I think it is a problem with the DC streaming service. It didn't get off to a great start. Also they cancelled Swamp Thing. I have no idea what is going to fill those slots now.

Well, there were at least three of us that watched it.

I loved it, but I would be hard pressed to even describe the demographic it was aimed at. Adult comic fans who like dark and gritty but don't take it too seriously? People who wished Jim Jarmusch and David Lynch made a superhero TV show? Diehard Alan Tudyk fans?*

Basicly everyone in my local circle loves Doom patrol. Which is basicly the only superhero/sci-fi that everyone around me has agreed on is great since Firefly or Fringe.

it is very brave art. And wonderfully loyal to the source material without being enslaved by it.

I guess that means it was doomed from the start...

oh stop it...you got a full season of something that would never have left the pitch meeting 5 years ago. Don't be more jaded than thou. If its cancelled that sucks but at least we got to see it and where it went others will follow.
