This season is insane! 1960’s, cold war, oddly cool musical beats, cult, mafia, new super-powered kid, political conspiracies, alien sightings, time travel paradoxes, psychological manipulation, etc.
Allison, Clause, and Vanya dancing together was the favorite part of the season. It just felt so wholesome.
Season 2 balances the action with humor that makes it fun to watch. you become invested in the characters. It reminds of Kingsman: the secret service, while still beings its own thing.
The storylines of each character since going back in time in season 2 were masterfully done, each story was unique, interesting, and relevant to their character personally. Season 2 got rid of the horrible pacing issues, the episodes feel like the characters, they become more likable in this season.
HOW SEASON 2 IS DIFFERENT?
Season 1 ending was a bit predictable, but overall it was pure fun! Season 2, on the other hand, has been far ahead of the predecessor in terms of plot and character development. The writers gave us some exciting character pairings and ridiculously funny scenes combined with the electrifying soundtrack that made all the action scenes ten times better.
Some of the characters are funny and the actors showed their gift given in various ways. A very mysterious and action-packed show about people with abilities. It’s unique in away. Superhero movies are more individualized like Superman, Aquaman, etc. Yet their teams like Avengers, Fantastic Four, etc. You don’t really see a lot of superheroes themed shows or movies that revolve around family. It brings a new meal to the table.
The plot is continuing to be refreshing and entertaining with this time change in season 2. It discusses important themes that are quite relevant to today’s current events as viewers are reminded that the diverse cast we love so much, face very different situations in life in the 60s based on their differences such as sexual orientation or race, touching on the discrimination/injustices faced by these communities even today.
The ending leaves us wanting for more as viewers come to understand there’s more to the umbrella academy that we may have initially thought and set season 3 with an expected twist to explore further in season 3.
