Critic Reviews for Doom Patrol Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (7)

I found the first hour of this oddball adventure far more enjoyable and consistent than DC Universe's Titans, enlivened by sharp direction and a great ensemble.

Showrunner Jeremy Carver (Supernatural) has infused Doom Patrol with a good balance of self-referential humor and personal drama to make you already root for the four misfits by the time we get to the end of the episode.

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.

It seems the show had an interesting set up for these outsiders, but didn't know what to do with them after their origins were told, and they got out of the house. Still, this is an odd bit of super hero fun.

Doom Patrol works because it isn't afraid to be zany and it's a big part of the reason for why it's so engaging right out of the gate.

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.

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

[T]his offbeat superhero tale is a refreshingly twisted tale accentuated by the unlikely casting of Fraser and Dalton.

The meaning of superhero takes on a new definition as Doom Patrol gets underway.

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.
