Anyone catch last week's episode with the Doom Patrol? I enjoyed it big time along with the opening Batgirl sequence recapping her first appearance from the comic book. I'm kind of noticing a darker trend with the newer B&B eps than the first ones and while I personally like it, they're kind of pushing that Y-7 rating now that 2 of the past 3 episodes ended up with deaths.

I haven't seen it yet. I'm planning on getting it off of iTunes later.

But it sounds interesting.

I loved the use of every era of the patrol, the Carnival poster when they introduced Negative man had Beast Boy, Flex Mentallo and some others, this is why I love this show.

Don't forgot when the Spectre turned Prof. Milo into solid cheese and set the rats loose to eat him! That's pushed the rating too- I mean, I loved it...but I was surprised they got away with that!

And everyone needs to watch the awesome Birds of Prey episode on Friday Oct. 15 by Gail Simone!

Is this show still on? I tried watching an episode with Plastic Man and Gorilla Grodd a couple years ago and it was so bad I ended up turning it off. Like "The Batman" first season bad. Has it gotten any better?

I find the best answer to that question is this scene. Well, that or any scene with Aquaman. Outrageous!

Anyone catch tonight's episode? Booster, Beetle, Madmen, Haunted Tank, man-hugs, and awesomeness?

This show makes me feel like a kid waking up for Saturday morning cartoons every time. Love it.

Yeah, I'm watching the Beetle/Booster episode right now. It's kinda painful, and someone else in the room who doesn't watch many cartoons just started laughing at the character designs. I think this series just ain't for me. I do agree that Batman, as a character, is strong enough to survive almost anything. However, I've also always been a believer that just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done.

I was expecting the Birds of Prey episode tonight, but this one was a nice surprise.

I think the best part of this cartoon is the amount of little details they work in- like the posters at the circus in the Doom Patrol episode- and the amount of characters this series has animated for the first time. This series is introducing kids to so much from the DCU.

Hopefully BoP will be on next week?

I think someone at CN finally watched the BoP episode and saw the very raunchy song that's been making the rounds on YouTube. I hate to say it, but this one might be in for some very big retuning before it airs.

I enjoyed the last two episodes a lot. Loved the Doom Patrol and the Booster Gold/Blue Beetle episode made me miss Ted again. I also just watched the BoP song on YouTube, damn funny!! Hope it doesn't get cut, but if it does, I hope they keep it in the dvd release.

That whole episode was amazing. I'm a huge Doom Patrol fan, so some of the callbacks put a huge grin on my face. From the already mentioned carnival pictures to the use of The Arsenal and those 3 mutants as major bad guys, that was really good stuff.

The only way it could have been better is if they included the Brotherhood of Dada!

Wikipedia lists next week episode as the Emporer Joker one so that should be sweet.

But the BoP episode (official name: "The Mask of Matches Malone!") lists as being aired in other countries, but not here. I really want to see it because it also lists SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
Two-Face as the villain and Black Orchid as the hero appearing in the opening short! Black Orchid!! That's beyond cool. And she's fighting Poison Ivy!



Hopefully the episode will air unaltered. All my friends are huge fans of Gail and BoP so they all want to see this particular episode...

Aw man, I hope not. That song is epic. Nevermind that it isn't any more raunchy than the average episode of Animaniacs (standard rule being anything eyebrow-raising is also way over the heads of anyone too young for it). Heck, if the penis-bed from the totally-not-the-Playboy-Mansion in that episode of Justice League got a pass, this should too.

I wonder if they just pulled the BOP episode completely? That would suck if say the Canadians got to see it and we never will. Dang puritanical attitudes. *pout*

WHAT was so objectionable in the BoP ep? (or should we not even discuss that in a forum?)

And, I'll REALLY be mad if it don't make it (Black Orchid vs. Poison Ivy??? HOW cool is that????)
