Doom Patrol… Season Three
« on: 12 September, 2020, 07:23:19 PM »
Season Three confirmed.

This is fantastic news, especially since S2 ends rather abruptly, due to shooting of Ep10 (the finale) having to be abandoned because of Covid.

Great news one of my favourite series, and yes season 2 did just suddenly finish without any kind of satisfying wrap up.

Just one question is it worthwhile watching ? Currently the market is flooded with superhero shows.

I watched the first season.  It was good but not quite good enough to entice me to watch the second season - maybe I'm the problem though, wanting it to be just like the Grant Morrison comic.  Might get back to it.

I thought it was more like the Morrison/Case run that I ever imagined I'd see realised in live action.

Hard to answer as everyone's tastes differ, but it is VERY unique among those superhero shows. It goes to an extremely surreal place quite regularly, but can range from dark to very sweet and poignant.

Maybe I'll give it another shot.  I need something to fill the gap after I finish Dark and The Boys.

Ironically, although I love the show for its faithfulness to the Morrison/Case run, its treatment of Larry Trainor probably owes the least to the source material but provides some of my favourite moments in S1.

Seriously, it’s a great show, although if you’re expecting actual superheroics, they’re fairly thin on the ground.

This is what surprised me. It kept that tone marvellously.

Alright, you've twisted my arm. I'll go back to it.  I do remember being impressed by DC producing something so bizarre for TV, but just lost touch with it.

I've watched two episodes of the first season.  I don't dislike it but I'm struggling to get the point of some of the characters.  Like the blobby film star.  And the split personality girl seems like she has potential to solve any plot drama by Superman-ing her way through anything.

We've not gone back to it but it was just three weeks ago and I've moved house in that time.
