Doom Patrol: Season 1 / Reviews

Hollywood Reporter

Hollywood Reporter

Doom Patrol is, in fact, utterly immature and that's its proud brand. I don't know if I'd permanently watch a show built on that foundation in which I don't care about the stakes. Here, it's at least an interesting start.

Dressing up the standard superteam tropes with this kind of metafictional framework could get old fast. But a show that gives you a donkey who spells out messages in big green clouds of flatulence gets at least one more week from me.

This offbeat superhero tale is a refreshingly twisted tale accentuated by the unlikely casting of Fraser and Dalton.

The show is absurdly watchable. Bananas, yes, but enjoyably bananas.

The series is refreshingly self-aware, both in the hilarious meta narration by Alan Tudyk... and in its more fundamental understanding that if you make a show about these characters, you'd best come weird or not come at all.

It has a wickedly dark sense of humor but also a clear desire to explore the humanity of these misanthropic outcasts. Doom Patrol is the breath of fresh air the superhero TV landscape sorely needed.

Coupled with the synthesization of Bomer and Zuk's performances - each with their own strengths and gravity - Doom Patrol breathes new life in a genre that in recent years has felt calcified.

I dare any other show try and make its audience care this much about every minor character while also making them laugh at the sight of a man that's part vegetable, part mineral, and part velociraptor.

The show seems to be trying to recapture the magic Morrison brought to these characters... you don't just want someone to adapt Grant Morrison. You want someone to be Grant Morrison, to do to superhero television what Morrison was did to superhero comic.

Politically incorrect, psychedelic and utterly berserk.

The fun thing about Doom Patrol is that none of them are meant to be superheroes - nor do they want to be (with the exception of Cyborg). Sometimes the underdog story can be played out, but that definitely isn't the case with this series.
