    I like the different time periods because it lets each character have their own ambience in the flashbacks. The 1950s makes sense for a classic film actress. The 1960s makes sense for a hotshot jet pilot. The 1970s rings true for the far-out Crazy Jane. Leaving the 1980s for Cliff.

    Lots of opportunity for set design and costuming.

    What doesn't make sense is why Jane and Cliff met so late, when they both seem to have been in the house at the same time--this leads me to think that there's weird stuff going on inside the house which would explain how their ships never passed in the night.
    Does that leave the 90's for Cyborg? Would explain the urban influence lol

    Anyway this show is phenomenal! Great cast! Intriguing storyline, unique style, it has it all! This show has made me a Doom Patrol fan and now I'm going to have to go out and binge some of their comics.
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    Personal Cool note the TV Robot-Man was watching was the same model my family had as a kid.

    Has there been any mention of the potentially temperature-manipulating character seen in the Titans episode? (Who I was thinking might be the introduction of Celsius/Arani.)

    No. The closest we get is chief saying many people came and went throughout the years. She likely didn't stay.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the Chief tuns out to be way older than the rest. I also expect his little mystery trips have something to do with his longevity.

    I just hope this isn't the last we've seen of Donkey.

    I'm surprised that Robotman and Cyborg didn't resonate with each other. Also, Cyborg doesn't seem to have his motherbox origin in this.

    There is sill time for either to be revealed.

    This was another good episode indeed. It's funny how I lastched on to these characters so quickly in one episode by the time episode 2 dropped and I didn't feel we needed Cybrog. That being said I let the episode play out and Cy was cool, I wanna see more to get a better feel for this version but not a bad first impression and his dad was the perfect slimeball. I only just saw Cy's actor for the first time months ago cataching up on Doctor Who so I'm super surprised to see him in this role; good for him.

    I cancelled my sub after watching the second ep, but I'll be back.

    I gather that we will only get a little of Timothy Dalton in each episode. I can understand why, since he probably has other things to do. I imagine bringing in other characters is a way to fill the void left by his absence.

    This take on Cyborg felt right to me and made more sense of the character than anything else recently. It explains why he can be so much younger in his looks and yet be around for quite some time. And it makes sense of why he would be in the Justice League--just not right at the formation of the League--because that's the aspirational goal that's been set for him by his father.

    I like this Cyborg, but 2 episodes in, I'm already getting tired of the whole "trying to get Crazy Jane to behave" schtick. They really have to start doing something more interesting with her than just having her flip personalities every 20 seconds, or I'm giving up on this.
    Live true or lie well.
