Subj: I'm Reading Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol, And I'm Confused. Has Anyone Read It, Or Are There Doom Patrol Fans Here?

I took out two trade paperbacks of his from the Library, and I read a good deal of the second one before I returned it. I took them out because of how great they're supposed to be, and because I like Grant Morrison. I was somewhat disappointed. Some of it looks and feels (Art-wise.) dated, and I didn't really get a sense of the characters. The characters seemed to be more or less mouthpieces for Morrison's thoughts, philosophies or one-liners (That seems to be quite common with Morrison.). Still, the team does seem cool, especially Robot Man (Cliff. He seemed to be the most well-developed and empathetic.), and I did like the general weirdness and creativity of the book.
Can anyone fill in some gaps for me about them. Do the team have a rogues gallery? Do they have an arch-enemy? I also heard that the team died during their original series. Were they meant to stay dead? How many reboots have they had? I am interested in the team now, and I wouldn't mind getting some classic or pivotal issues. Thanks for the help.
