March 7, 2019
With a super strange team like the Doom Patrol, it's different to retell any extent of a character's rise to their superhero occupation, and the risk paid off within the first episode.
March 7, 2019
Doom Patrol also brings the glossy wonder you'd hope for from a superhero show, while skirting clear of many of the pitfalls that harangue so many similar series.
March 7, 2019
Doom Patrol is, somehow, pretty fun.
March 4, 2019
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.
February 26, 2019
Fun, heartfelt superhero reboot has language, nudity.

Doom Patrol is sufficiently eccentric to earn your attention. [Full Review in Spanish]

February 15, 2019
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.
February 15, 2019
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
February 15, 2019
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.
February 15, 2019
The show is absurdly watchable. Bananas, yes, but enjoyably bananas.

February 15, 2019
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.
February 15, 2019
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.

February 15, 2019
[T]his offbeat superhero tale is a refreshingly twisted tale accentuated by the unlikely casting of Fraser and Dalton.
February 15, 2019
The meaning of superhero takes on a new definition as Doom Patrol gets underway.
February 15, 2019
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.
February 14, 2019
"Doom Patrol" offers an entertaining, illuminating pilot episode that distinguishes itself by doing a deep dive into the backstories of its characters.
February 14, 2019
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.
February 14, 2019
The most novel thing about the first episode is its visual style, which transitions across time periods.
February 14, 2019
Doom Patrol is a worthy third entry into DC Universe's library of originals, and it stands out as the most fun of the three so far.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
February 14, 2019
Bolstered by [Brendan] Fraser's easy charm and some knockout acting by [Timothy] Dalton, Doom Patrol stakes its claim as DC's best streaming option.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.2/10
