Doom Patrol continues to be absolutely delightful. Again, the casting is superb and I love the risks they take again and again. The one with Culder’s backstory was so fucking weird and wonderful it felt like an Outer Limits episode or something.
The Bureau of Normalcy as bad guys are a litttttle meh? For me? It’s very comic-bookey and fun, just, it clashes with the notion that they were doing a more substantial story arc. Suddenly there’s just the anti-Doom Patrol, who arrive and are just cartoonishly, generically evil.
I’m also really not into this edgy Cyborg storyline, which was my biggest fear when he entered the series, and continues to be one of the weaker sides of the show. Joivan Wade is great, Phil Morris is perfect (particularly in the latest ep), just, man, what is the point of these storylines when a character thinks they’re crazy, but it turns out it’s just like an alien or a ghost or something supernatural? Cyborg killing his own father because of a completely false memory Mr. Nobody put into his head is moronic. Why wouldn’t he just straight-up mind-control Cyborg at that point? Might as well.
Anyways, still love it, still full of great character moments and fun, weird-ass shit.
