    I liked it. Very stylish and for once, I liked how the comic plot was drawn out.

    Finished the show. Much better than I thought this would be. Many twists and turns.

    I can’t believe it but I think it’s better than Doom Patrol.


    Someone just needs to explain the ending to me
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    spoilers:
    I'm not sure what you didn't understand about it so I'll recap what I took away from it from the gunshot onward. Allison decided not to kill Vanya but to deafen her, disabling her power. (Nice reversal of what Vanya did to her.) Vanya channeled the last thing she heard, the gunshot, into a tight beam that destroyed the moon, causing the actual apocalypse when the huge rock hit the earth. Number 5 then took them all to the past to have a second go at everything with hopefully a better ending. They all reverted to their younger selves, like Number 5 did when he first returned to the present.
    end of spoilers

    I enjoyed the show a lot, the white violin sequence was great.

    I know it wouldn't be the easiest thing to do, but it would have made for something really unique.
    This has been my big hesitation in deciding whether or not to watch the show. The trailers make it look just another superhero TV shows rather than Ba's art come to life.

    It's interesting that you say that, the original comic was very inspired by Morrison's Doom Patrol.

    8 episodes in and I love it. Was the comic framed this way? Adults coming back together when the father died? Or was it about them as kids?.. Or both and the show jumped ahead to a later story line

    The comic starts with them as kids and they have an adventure, then it jumps forward in time.

    I just watched the trailer to this and instantly thought X-Men. Especially with Ellen Page starring in it. They also have the girl who played Magneto’s daughter in Apocalypse.

    Without trying to spoil too much or confuse you, they sort of threw the first two trades into a blender and made a season out of it.

    - Klaus and Number Five's stories are largely pulled from the second trade.
    - The rest is a version of the first trade.


    Notable exception being Ben. That stuff was all essentially created for television.
