Audience Reviews for Doom Patrol: Season 1

  • 3d ago
    Surprisingly good, I didn't know much about it going in but I was pleasantly surprised how well it was made. The writing and story made care about the characters from the start. Many of the things that happen are absurd on the surface but aren't played for cheap laughs and fit well in the story and treated seriously. The characters back stories feel real and they do a good job exploring each one. I'm only on season 1 so far but it looks promising

    The absolute best off handed DC show completely fresh take on super hero's bringing real feel to an absurd concept

    Another eclectic ensemble of incapable superheroes with endearing stories

    The greatest first 15 episodes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Weird and beautiful. I personally like Its Sentimental-approach.
  • Jul 02, 2022
    I appreciate weirdness as much as anybody and I therefore really wanted to like this, but despite my eagerness and perseverance, the entire thing is like some ADHD fever-dream. It's almost as if the writers couldn't actually be bothered to come up with an engaging, intelligent storyline so to obscure that they instead just decided to make it as bizarre as possible regardless of it actually making any sense or being believable within the context of its own universe. The result is an erratic mess, pinballing around from one thing to the next in the kind of infantile, nonsensical manner that you might expect to have come from the minds of two neurodivergent 8 year olds trying to one-up each other ("You thought of a farting donkey that's also a gateway to another dimension? Well then how about my Spanish priest who's inexplicably the gateway to a castle inside a snowglobe which is also inexplicably linked to the real world via random doors?!") all the while trying to maintain this facade of cleverness which just comes off as being pretentious and confused. Things just randomly happen, without any explanation or background, and the viewer is supposed to accept them because weirdness good. Random characters appear, apparently crucial to the storyline, despite never even being referenced before, do something bizarre, then disappear. As if all of that wasn't bad enough, the only respite from it all takes the form of interludes filled with whining, bickering and shouting from the dysfunctional, melancholic, and in most cases just downright irritating characters. Most irritating of all has to be Jane, who has 64 personalities, virtually all of them insufferably obnoxious, which is quite some achievement from a character creation perspective. Credit where credit is due, though; Diane Guerrero who plays her is a superb actress, able to instantly switch between these personalities so convincingly that they really do seem like completely separate characters. I get that all of the characters are supposed to be "damaged" and "edgy", but what results is just brainache, either chaotic screaming and shouting or painfully slow-paced, unnecessarily deep, self-indulgent introspection. Despite all of the characters being adults they all have the maturity and emotional intelligence of badly-raised adolescents, the exception being Niles Caulder (and occasionally, Victor and Cliff). Even damaged characters and antiheroes have to be aspirational in some way; the viewer still has to be able to respect and admire them, and to be able to empathise and identify with them on some level. Where these characters are concerned there's almost nothing to respect, admire or aspire to and rather than empathising or identifying with them, you'll be shaking your head and wishing that they'd stop being so hysterical and just get a grip, or asking "Why did you do that?". Most of the usual woke tropes have been shoehorned in there as well. Jane has to constantly prove what a "strong and independent wahman" she is by belittling and sniping at the male characters around her, or just exploding in anger for no reason other than her schizophrenia, which is apparently all the justification necessary for everybody to endlessly and unquestioningly accommodate her irrational, often totally counter-productive behaviour. Of course Larry Trainor has to be gay as an antidote to all of the "toxic masculinity" that'd be inherent in him being not just a straight, white male but, gasp, a military test pilot. There's as much contrived "diversity" and racial ambiguity crammed in as possible, except for where the villains are concerned of course; they're virtually all white men. There's even some anti-fascist and anti-Nazi sentiment, such a novel, controversial, stunning and brave position to take as that was in 2019. In summary, just don't waste your time on this. It gets 1.5 stars because some of the visual effects and videography are excellent, and there are occasional glimmers of humour and likeable traits from some of the characters, but that's nowhere near enough to make it worth enduring all of the other stuff described above.

    S1-3: Nieustanne wrażenie, że zaraz się rozkręci na dobre, ale nigdy nie rozkręca. Abstrakcyjny, nieprzewidywalny. Słabe efekty specjalne, beznadziejny J.Wade

  • Jun 10, 2022
    love everything abou the show! crazy jane is the best one.
  • Mar 02, 2022
    overall I like the idea and possibilities available, but it just got super repetitive with the constant backstory updates for each character, and the "oh no I'm dysfunctional" every episode. gonna keep with it, even tho I feel like the characters all kinda blend together, no real personality to separate them from each other. I'm hoping it takes off for me eventually.
