Doom Patrol keeps improving each week and this Friday was no different, I may even bodily say that Episode 4 is my favorite (for now).
- Elliot and parents scene was obscure and a good way to set the tone of the episode.
- An episode centered around The Cult of The Unwritten Book is a welcome surprise.
- With 37 known dimensions there are so many places to explore!
- At first it seemed Cyborg wasn’t the greatest addition to the team but with his team talk and taking charge I’ve had a change of mind.
- Seems like some relationships in team are falling apart due to some conflict but the writers/show runners handle it well and mature making it seem genuine and worth the watch.
- Mark Sheppard is a great addition to the show as Kipling, who is also a fun character.
- “Is anything gonna make sense today?” Does it ever Cliff?
- The unicorn is fucking great. Not much else is needed to be said.
- I’ve said it before but they are heavily leaning on Grant Morrison’s run and more than I thought they would they are using more of his obscure and unique concepts.
- The magic may seem stupid but is hilarious and very well done.
- Cliff has seen enough slasher flicks to know not to be too curious.
- Jane’s newly revealed personality, Penny, is on the top of my list for her personalities.
- “Don’t question the magic.”
- It’s nice to meet someone from Niles’ past that mentions a darker side of Chief, even though he may be unreliable.
- Revelations of Negative Man’s other being through the interview tapes was clever, making me look forward to more on his story.
- Rita mocking Cyborg out of frustration was great.
- Rita talking to Ellie in a motherlike manner showed more of her character and makes me want more screen time with her.
- I’m surprised with them willing to go with the weirder characters from the comics, with Archon, Little Sisters of Our Lady of The Razor, Dry Bachelors, Hoodman, and The Decreator all making their live action debut. Can we get Beard Hunter next?
- Cyborg’s cannon looked dope in action and so did Kipling’s flame sword.
- The Rita scenes with Elliot are great and I hope there are more in the next episode.
- Rita finally stretching and not losing form shows she may be learning how to control her powers.
- Let It Rip, sounds like Cyborg watches Beyblade!
- Archon changing perception was a well done emotion scene that worked perfectly in a great episode that gave a good amount of laughs, drama, and a lot of world building.
- Never in my life did I think any of the weirder side of things in Doom Patrol would be adapted so well to live action.
- Four episodes in and this show feels like the most comic book show ever!
