The two oddest shows on any streaming service right now would hands down be, The Umbrella Academy and Doom Patrol. Both of which had their second seasons drop in 2020.
Doom Patrol shouldn't be this good. I don't know why it is so good. But, dammit! It is really, really, really good. This season we are introduced to Dorothy, who quickly becomes one of the standouts of the show. But, Crazy Jane (played brilliantly by Diane Guerrero) just completely comes into the multiple-characters she portrays, and she comes in hard. She is so absolutely outstanding in the season. She is definitely an actress to look out for.
The only problem I had with this season was that it ended so abruptly, whether that was COVID related or not, I don't know. But, the finale was less of a finale and more of a tease leading up to something major. I guess we can call it a cliffhanger. But, it just didn't feel right to me. I wanted more. But, will sadly have to wait to see if it gets another season.
Final Word: Much like the Doom Patrol themselves! This show is super underrated. On paper the show doesn't really stand out. In fact I think a lot of people are sleeping on this show. And, they shouldn't be! It is one of the best things out there right now. This cast is so amazingly talented, it is a bit upsetting more people aren't talking about it. It is batshit crazy, quirky as all get out, and super fun to tune into every week. So, check it out already!
