Doom Patrol

Post by T'Pau »

Just started season 1 (from 2019) and I see a season 2 is airing now on HBOMAX.

I'm admittedly not a DC fan, but as this was a streaming platform show, it is very non mainstream and ....odd but sorta good.

First impressions are: decent cast, some familiar faces, script seems ok so far, lots of 'WTF' moments just two episodes in... so interesting enough to move forward.

important thing for those who saw titans... its not the same continuity, titans is basically 'modern day' while I believe doom patrol was supposed to be 90s or something? (and yes Brendan Fraiser was in both as the roboguy... I think?)

Apparently there are a few characters (actors) that are crossing over a few shows (titans, legends of tomorrow, etc).

With continuity being different in each show, makes it confusing when watching more than one show at a time.

Cyborg is in DP, but seems ok with his dad and his cybernetics, where his portrayal in Justice League film is completely different. He is constantly evolving on his own in JL, but isn't in DP.

Finished the first season and found it both incredibly strange and fun.

Will check out season 2 soon.
