    I hated so many things about this show. The few highlights were Klaus and Hazel.

    Well that was a ride...I expected lolquirkydisfunctionalsuperheroes from the image of them all standing together looking weird...instead it was kinda a trip with time travel and secret powers and twists and shit.

    My take on the ending:
    Man screw Luther...literally caused the apocalypse by not hugging Vanya. I can't help but feel so bad for Vanya! She was always left out and abused even more than he other kids. They got abuse from their dad, but then they also turned around and abused Vanya. Then she is emotionally manipulated by a psychopath. Then after that when she is hoping to return to her family and just explain what happened they just turn on her and lock her up which triggers tons of childhood trauma and causes her to end the world. I really can't help but feel like if Luther had just hugged her...it would have all been different. Poor Vanya...I just want to hug her...tell her everything is going to be OK.

    I really foudn this show a slog to get through, finally watched it all but I felt like I had to drag myself into getting through it. I do like some of the clever twists and turns the show had. But overall it was pretty okay. I just wish I could have enjoyed it as much as everyone else, because I did try

    When it came out I watched the first episode, liked the idea, but for some reason never got back into it. Until a few days ago, just finished S1 last night and am a few episodes into S2, I will finish S2 soon. I really liked it. I liked the characters, I thought Five was great, the kid who played him did a fantastic job. It had some heart when it needed to.

    I decided to rewatch season 1 before watching season 2 and I must say I enjoyed it a lot more than the first time. I remember thinking the pacing was really slow the first time around but in rewatching it, I think I understood what they were going for. I originally came at it expecting a superhero show but this really isn't that. This is a show about family drama and in that regard, it works quite well. Now to watch season 2.

    Enjoying the second season also more than the first, perhaps now the characters are know, there's a bit of a back story and maybe that you now have all stories working together to form a single storyline where as the first season existed out of multiple origin stories woven into each other so an entire episode focussed more on one of the six than the others.

    Or simply the production value and acting is better as the actors have now settled into their role better and the writers fine tuned the script. The soundtrack from what i have seen so far is also well done a mixture between songs from that era and covers of newer pop songs.

    I'm enjoying how the characters make everything worse.

    As 5 puts it, you could argue that most of them are idiots that happen to have world-altering powers lol.
    Vanya triggers an apocalypse everywhere she goes and doesn't really care about the bigger picture because she's focused on relationships. Diego is a stupid Batman that also doesn't see the bigger picture. Allison is self-detrimental with the bad timing of her power usage. Luther constantly makes the worst decisions as 'leader'. And Klaus... no comment - he's just a hedonist.
    I really hope they don't keep using the childhood trauma as an excuse in the 3rd season as well.

    Like in the first season, a couple episodes felt super sluggish and a tad pointless but I thought the dynamics between each of the siblings was vastly improved this season. Great seeing a lot more of Number Six (Ben) though it’d been nice to know how he died except a failed mission they were on. Him saving Vanya & co. while sacrificing himself was quite touching.

    The soundtrack was pretty awesome.

    I liked season 2 overall, but Luther's getting the kick-the-dog treatment, the Vanya plotline was weak and felt like she was overly self-indulgent.

    Klaus is great because he's such an unapologetic train-wreck of a human being. Allison's plotline was great, and Allison is gorgeous to boot.

    Five, as usual, carries the show, that kid is amazing. I felt like Diego got stuck with the idiot ball an awful lot. Feels like between Luther and Diego they are going out of their way to subvert strong male characters. I haven't read the comic, so maybe that's the point.

    But overall, I did enjoy it a lot.

    My biggest issue with season 2 was Five saying nucular instead of nuclear. Dude is supposed to be smart. So... 9/10?

    I finished it but there were a lot of places where I fast forwarded it. For those among you who wondered who the head Swede
    reminded you of the answer is..................the late Country Music Star Porter Wagoner.

    I've heard Harvard professors say "eckcetera", so... ¬_¬

    Anyway, I didn't really like the whole "the world is going to end" shtick being the driving force AGAIN in S2. I also really hate this period BS and time travel in general. Done to death, and not that fun to begin with.

    Makes you wonder how they got their job...

    I get where you’re coming from on the time travel, but I enjoyed it personally. And it led to where we ended the season, which I’m digging. I can’t wait to see where Sparrow Academy takes us in season 3.

    One thing I thoroughly don't understand.

    If Reginald was an alien, and he commit suicide, and there was an autopsy (IN season 1 Diego shows the autopsy photo), wouldn't it have been known and surely leaked that he was an alien? This leads me to believe he did not commit suicide in the original timeline and likely faked his death. Or maybe I am tinfoil hating and this is just a loophole.
