“Doom Patrol: The Complete Second Season [Blu-ray] ” Review by Suzanne 1/23/21

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.

I love this series. I grew up reading the “Doom Patrol” comic books. I love superhero shows, and the actors do a fabulous job. I’m very glad to have this on DVD because I never seem to have the time to watch it otherwise. The second season is just as good as the first, in my opinion. The characters, having vanguished the villain Mr. Nobody in season 1, now have plenty to do in season 2 as they battle their own inner demons as well as the real-life bad guys.  They do a wonderful job of bringing the comic book to life.

Season 2 ended on a cliffhanger because of the pandemic (there was supposed to be one more episode); there are 9 episodes total.  The show was renewed for season 3 and has already started filming. Hopefully, it will return later this year. It airs now on HBO Max, since DC Universe no longer shows TV shows.

Any comic book fan should love this series.  It’s great drama, tragedy, action and quite a bit of humor as well.

The special features include “Doom Patrol: The Magic of Makeup” and “Doom Patrol Season 2: Come Visit Georgia PSA.”  The first feature is very cool and shows how some of the makeup gets done for the show. The second feature is really boring, but it’s short. I wish they had more extras.
