Future Man (Season 2)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) Wolf’s entire adventure in NAG was the best part of this season
2) An unpredictable surreal time-travel saga spanning different eras where the characters forget about the actual quest and are lost in their own petty errands.
3) The show is terribly under-rated. Just like the first season, it’s fast-paced, witty and full of pop culture references.
4) Stu & Tiger on MARS.
5) Seth Rogen’s cameo in the finale. The finale confirms that in a time-travel adventure, things will always go from bad to worst. And we are ready for more in the next season.

 
CONS –
N/A

 

QUOTE –
Wolf: In prison, he was my friend. He gave me a rock hammer and I used it to dig a hole, bit by bit every night, to make my escape.
Level: How did they not see the hole?
Wolf: Oh, well, that was the great part. He also gave me a sexy poster to hang on the wall to cover the hole.
Hatchet: They let you have a poster?
Lathe: That seems implausible.
Wolf: Well, I helped them out with their taxes. But [stammers], that’s not important.

Verdict – 4/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Unapologetically funny and fast-paced – it’s a time-travel galore!
2) Closest thing we can get to a live-action Rick & Morty
3) Full of pop-culture references – The Last Starfighter, James Cameron, Back To The Future, Terminator etc.
4) The later episodes are more like stand-alone adventures.

 

 

Cons –

 

1) The climax would’ve been much better if it was a cliffhanger.
