The Enemy Within the Doom Patrol!

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée check out the early adventures of streaming's newest niche IP, The Doom Patrol! Robotman! Negative Man! Elasti-Girl! The Chief! What they lack in clever codenames they make up for in torturous existential ennui!

The answer is Madame Rouge, of the nefarious Brotherhood of Evil!

Because why bother dedicating your life to evil if you're not going to build lifelong friendships along the way?
