Frequently bought together
DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele, Negative Man aka Larry Trainor, Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief. Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief, these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be – called to action by Vic Stone aka Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission that's hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
From the manufacturer
Set after the events of TITANS, the Doom Patrol – consisting of Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, and Crazy Jane, and led by Dr. Niles Caulder / Chief – receive a mission from Cyborg that they cannot ignore and will change their lives.
Presented in an unconventional but nicely-framed 2.20:1 aspect ratio (which, as far as I know, is how the series was presented on DC Universe), Doom Patrol looks quite stunning on Blu-ray. These 1080p transfers offer a lot of support for the show's wildly varying and inventive visuals, which range from candy-coated primary colors to moody earth tones, sometimes brightly-lit but otherwise bathed in thick shadows. Skin tones and textures are a real highlight, especially the titular group's costumes and occasional superpower displays. Contrast levels are similarly strong with very few instances of banding, while only a few stray signs of compression artifacts could be found along the way -- this is largely due to the wise decision to split all 15 episodes onto three dual-layered discs, instead of only two as originally announced. For obvious reasons, I sincerely doubt that any streaming version can easily compete with what we get here: a strong, stable image that handles all of Doom Patrol's visual weirdness with energy to spare.
Not surprisingly, the default DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio mix is just as impressive, effectively balancing the surreal action and adventure with much more reserved dialogue-driven moments. Everything comes off without a hitch: speech is often anchored up front, superpower displays and other magic tricks make great use of surrounds and channel separation, epic moments fire on all cylinders, the low end gets a few workouts, and the music cues by Clint Mansell and Kevin Kiner are balanced nicely with very little need for sudden volume adjustment. It's a straightforward but very effective track that, like the show itself, isn't afraid to get a little creative when the situation demands it.
Optional English (SDH) subtitles are included during each episode and all applicable bonus features; these are formatted nicely with no obvious sync issues and fit right within the 2.20:1 frame.

Whacky and zanny and brutal, Doom Patrol doesn't take itself all too serious yet at the same time it is a great watch. 15 Episodes in this collection, highly recommended if you want something different from comic adaptions.
