Swamp Thing


I don't recall hearing about this project. Straight to video can't be a good thing.

It is like DOOM Patrol, it goes straight to the DC app and you have to pay something for the service. I’ve heard it’s good and DOOM Patrol looks pretty funny.

I dig Doom Patrol and I'm going to check this out tomorrow after work. I'm pretty stoked that DC is starting to put more into their stuff, now only if they could get the big pictures correct.

Doom Patrol is just crazy. At the start of episode two, as it zooms into Cliff's face, the way Brendan Fraser's character just drops, "WTF?" had me in tears. Very odd, but thankfully a bit different. Arrow, Flash, Legends... All eventually just started to annoy (Especially after 7+ seasons of the SAME stuff).

Isn’t Titans also on the service? So, it should be DOOM Patrol, Titans and Swamp Thing so far.

Correct. I really liked Titans, have Doom Patrol ready to go, and have been looking forward to Swamp Thing. It is also being produced by James Wan, which is cool.

Can’t seem to see how long the free trial is. 7 days, 14? Anyone know?

Well, I guess I'll have to check this and the others out.

I don't know that it behooves DC to make access to their media even HARDER as their track record so far makes it hardly worth watching when it's easy.
I'd watch this but I don't trust them enough to do it right that I'm going to deal with apps or paywalls or any other shit.
This looks good though.

It looks better than the old tv series - should be worth a shot.

I’m pretty happy with my sub. Doom Patrol is worth the fee alone. It’s an awesome show. Titans is pretty good but they made some questionable character choices that I’m not a fan of. Only one episode of Swamp Thing so far and it wasn’t to bad. Dark and edgy. Setting is creepy. They use a good combination of practical and computer generated effects. Has Will Patton in it who I like.

I will wait till all the episodes are out. Titans was mostly good but got annoying about halfway through with the tug of war around Raven. Not so sure about Doom Patrol.

They release one episode a week, so you’ll get the most out of your free trial if you wait until all the Swamp Thing episodes are released.

Was Doom Patrol any different after episode 1? I loved titans but couldn't get into DP at all. This actually looks entertaining btw....

And it’s gone. They cancelled Swamp Thing after one episode because North Carolina fucked up the tax rebate law for filming there. When production started it was $40 million, or about half the season’s budget. Someone realized the fuckup too late and revised down to $14 million and the show is dead.
