It’s clear now that Doom Patrol is just getting started with the weirdest and most satisfying show about super powered people currently on television.
What clearly started as an experiment for DC comics is now a full-fledged HBO Max sci-fi super powered series that took the weirdest parts of the comics and turned them into top notch television entertainment. By adding strange new spices and a heaping tablespoon of unconventional plotting and characters, Doom Patrol remains an endearing bazaar of absurd delights.
Wrapping up the second season with the demise of the Niles Coulder, he leader/maker of the gang, we start the new season with our heroes trying to figure out what’s next for them.
During the horrifically great and bizarre events, our heroes turn dead, then zombies, undead, we meet Madame Rouge, something called “The Sisterhood of Dada” as well as a french speaking Gorilla from the Brotherhood of Evil.
Yes, that’s a lot of information to unpack. But, as we are now familiar with the genius and weirdness of the show, I’m glad that the writers and producers went with it even more this time. I honestly can say (for once) that I’m super excited for the fourth season that should show up sometime in 2022. #DoomForce.
Should you watch it?
Yes, yes and a third yes. If you’re not afraid of weird to the extreme, season three of Doom Patrol is more satisfying than ever.
