    I read the Grant Morrison run a few months before the show came out. If I had not, I don't think I would appreciate or like the show that much even going in with zero expectations. But that's just me.

    I have no idea what Doom Patrol is like outside of the Morrison run, but there's a lot of elements from the Morrison run that's in the show. I'm shocked they pulled some of them off for live action.

    Also, Elastic Girl was new to me in the show, and Cyborg was a bit bizarre being in the crew, but I can see why the showrunners did it, and they both fit in nicely.

    Season one was a lot of fun so far and I'm looking forward to season 2. I highly recommend the reading the Morrison run on Doom Patrol. It's fantastic. :thumb

    What a fantastic show. I'm blown away by it. The only show that has been greater than this in the past few years is Cobra Kai.

    Dark, and heart breaking, but most importantly very original.

    I might have to pick up that Doom Patrol by Morrison Omni now....

    Wow, they sure came out with this from nowhere. Just a week or so before the release? Anyway, glad to finally have a show to watch again.
    I remember that masked Jack guy from the comics... he was some extradimensional Jack the Ripper, I think.
    Seems the big wendigo-bear thing is Dorothy's imaginary friend here instead of the creepy scissor-puppets.
    The... Sex-Men? I agree with Jane, I have so many questions too. :D

    So nice to have a well written show to watch again. Just finished episode 3 and I really want to see where they go with episode 4. after last season's revelation, you'd think you would want to hate Niles, but Dalton's acting is so good you can't help but feel for him even as they remind you of all he has done. Plus the villains this season are great so far. And no one is making out of character decisions. Everything feels organic.

    I keep hoping this is going to come to netflix in territories outside the US, like Titans did. They can keep Titans. I want to watch this.
