'Doom Patrol' Season 2 Episode 7 Review: Light-hearted absurdity rules as bad ideas come out to play

Spoilers for 'Doom Patrol' Season 2 Episode 7 'Dumb Patrol'

Though every episode of 'Doom Patrol' contains both light-hearted absurdity and more complicated explorations of deep-seated emotions, the focus seems to oscillate from episode to episode this season. With last week's more somber response to a death in the Underground, this episode ramps the absurdity back up with mind parasites and their Scant Queen (Jhemma Ziegler) and putting Larry Trainor (Matthew Zuk/Matt Bomer) in a doctor's coat on top of his regular coat. It's not as bad an idea as it sounds.
