July 10, 2020
The cast inhabits their roles with a kind of familiarity that comes with having spent so much time realizing them, and the end result is more than a handful of scenes that make you genuinely feel for the team members and all they've gone through.

This season feels like a fish in the water, swimming in its own pool and sure of itself. [Full Review in Spanish]

These disgruntled shut-ins of the Doom Patrol make for perfect viewing during a year of disease and disappointment.
June 29, 2020
The series blends deep, introspective character drama with absurd superhero humor in a way that's unlike anything else on TV.

It is an ambitiously bizarre series, and there's nothing like it on the market.
June 26, 2020
Doom Patrol has already proved that the stellar season one wasn't a fluke and that its deft combination of weirdness and human pathos continues to be one of the best things on TV.
June 26, 2020
Frequently funny despite being a show almost entirely about life-ruining traumas, Doom Patrol season 2 is, all told, a weird wild delight.
June 26, 2020
Doom Patrol leans into the drama while still acknowledging that it exists in a quite bizarre and off-kilter comic book world.

Doom Patrol, perhaps the superhero show farthest from the idea that real problems can be solved by a powerful punch, takes the scenic route to personal health.
June 26, 2020
It's a lot deeper than the first season, but humor hasn't been sacrificed for emotions. That ensures the season will remain well-balanced and that every actor will find something juicy to bite into, and we'll still be entertained.

Doom Patrol also accomplishes much of what the current DC movie stable fails to do: feeling fresh and inventive while not shying away from darkness and shadows.
June 26, 2020
Doom Patrol's second season sacrifices too much joy on the altar of its heroes' troubled psyches, without enough chances to savor their unusual charms-or marvel at the oddities continually swirling around them.

June 26, 2020
If these first three episodes are any indication, the series will once again live up to the team's well-earned reputation as the World's Strangest Heroes, in record time.
June 26, 2020
[A] simpler reason to enjoy Doom Patrol is that it fully throws itself into the absurdity unique to comics at their best.
June 26, 2020
In spite of the plot imbalances, the show's character work remains note-perfect, with showrunner Jeremy Carver and his writers managing to find new depth and connections to characters seemingly exhausted decades ago in their comic-book incarnations.
June 26, 2020
If there was an "Island of Misfit Toys" in the world of comic books, Doom Patrol would certainly fit the bill perfectly.

June 25, 2020
Season 2 doesn't miss a beat stepping back into the bizarre, heartfelt adventures of this flawed, dysfunctional psuedo-superfamily.

I assure you that if you were a fan of the premiere season, you will definitely enjoy this one! The second season couples many of the elements that made the first something special and is working toward something even greater this time around.
June 20, 2020
That's the beauty of Doom Patrol, an ability to transition from pure ridiculousness to relatable heartbreak so quickly you don't even notice until you're tearing up.

Doom Patrol season two continues to be a brilliantly bonkers and emotionally moving trip down the yellow brick lane with the loveable gang of misfits.
