Doom Patrol has no problems bringing on some of the more obscure characters from DC Universe. Episode 10 – Hair Patrol is no exception.
In this episode we are introduced to the Beard Hunter. This guy can track anyone down through space and time by ingesting their essence…. through their beard hair. Just imagine that clump of gook you use Drano to clear out in your bathroom sink. This guy eats that stuff and is able to know everything about you.
The Bureau of Normalcy recruits the Beard Hunter to find the Chief. There are several cut scenes that give us some more background on the Chief. We find out he spends a few years in the frozen wilderness with an ancient tribeswoman. This woman seems to be immortal and has the ability to summon a huge “owlbear” looking creature.
This episode is not one of our favorites, but it is still pretty interesting. It seems like the Doom Patrol is not getting any closer to finding and saving the Chief. It doesn’t seem like they are really focusing very hard on the task either. The episodes seem to be just enough to keep us interested until the next week. There better be a big payoff in the season finale or we might not watch season 2. You can string us along for a while, but you eventually need to give us the goods.
Do you agree with us that Doom Patrol seems to be wandering aimlessly? Let us know in the comments.
We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts. If they are good, we will use them on the show. The number is (575) 323-1332.
