News & Interviews for Doom Patrol: Season 1
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.
This dark horse series is a balanced mix of action and comedy, but doesn't ignore the intrinsic empathy a series needs to be emotionally resonant, something lost in so many superhero stories and spin off series.
Boasting solid ensemble performances with great production values to boot, Doom Patrol is definitely your brand of Vodka if you are looking for an incendiary concoction of action, adventure, violence, weirdness, heart and soul.
The fun thing about Doom Patrol is that none of them are meant to be superheroes - nor do they want to be (with the exception of Cyborg). Sometimes the underdog story can be played out, but that definitely isn't the case with this series.
By focusing on characters that can seem unlikable, though, the series manages to humanize "the other," something sorely needed in divisive times and achingly well-executed here.
