Future Man Season 2 Review (Spoiler Free)

Hulu’s Future Man travels through time for yet another season of unpredictable, one-of-a-kind comedy that only improves on its formula.

This is a spoiler free review.

“All right guys, time to save the world again.”

"Fish out of Water" is a popular storytelling trope where a character gets pushed outside of their comfort zone and Future Man’s first season certainly subscribes to that device. Future Man Season 2 is more like a "Fish out of Vodka" story where the characters are in a new substance that lookslike water, and they can swim in it, but it's fundamentally notwater.

Future Man Season 2 dabbles with alternate timelines that are both familiar and substantially different than the norm. Additionally, science fiction is experiencing a bit of a Renaissance at the moment, but while so many TV shows and films are eager to show the advancements of the future, Future Man paints its

Is A Cloak And Dagger-Runaways Crossover A Possibility

  • Cinelinx
Could there be a Marvel Teen team up in the works? A new behind the scenes image of cast members seems to hint something is coming. Come inside to learn more!

Something many fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been wanting more of is crossovers. The universe is quite large and outside The Defenders, the TV shows haven’t had too many crossovers. Never forget the first show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the one which has the most potential to connect with both TV and films hasn't crossed over with the any of the other TV shows. There is a possibility though of a couple of other Marvel properties meeting and teaming up.

Hulu’s Runaways and Freeform’s Cloak and Dagger have the biggest connection of all. Both focus on teenagers with powers that are trying to escape their troubles. In the comics, they

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger and Runaways stars tease crossover

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has recently surpassed ten years of films and TV shows, but that isn’t slowing the house of ideas and their ever expanding list of projects and superhero adaptations. Fans may have had some bad news lately regarding the cancellation of many of Netflix’s Marvel properties, but true believers still have plenty of Marvel television to enjoy as we move into 2019.

For some time Cloak & Dagger has been said to be one of the most connected McU TV shows, finding links to both the films and other shows, including Netflix’s Luke Cage. On the other hand, Runaways has seemed very self contained so far, with only a few connections to a wider world, such as the magical link to Doctor Strange.

However, it seems that these links to a wider cinematic universe could be about to get a lot stronger, as – after years

‘Runaways’ Season 2 Spoiler Review: Remixed Comic Book Origins Leads To True Success in Show’s Second Round

Out of all of Marvel’s properties, Runaways had arguably the hardest page-to-screen adaptation. There’s a lot of wacky shit going on in the comics, and all of that wouldn’t transition to screen well – especially in a live-action version. But for Season 2 of the Marvel drama, the series retools and grounds many of these […]

Marvel's Runaways Season 2 Review: A Fast-Paced Adventure with Action and Teen Angst

  • TVfanatic
Action-packed. Intense. Full of teen angst.

Marvel's Runaways Season 2 delivered another thrilling year of superpowered drama and heroic moves.

But, where it differed from Marvel's Runaways Season 1 was that the development this time focused on being fast-paced with grander plots. A lot happened to the Runaways during their sophomore season, which benefitted their progression into becoming heroes. However, the focus bounced around too much.

Right from the season premiere on Marvel's Runaways Season 2 Episode 1, the story centered on the dynamic between the teens. This theme had been the strongest plot point from its freshman run, and it's a theme that thankfully stayed present onwards.

So much time had gone into developing the bonds between the characters, it would've been a shame to lose that. In this case, their relationship naturally progressed to the next phase. The Runaways were no longer friends, but they became a family.

Throughout most plots,

Marvel's Runaways Season 2 Review

Marvel's Runaways second outing is a lot of fun, but again fails to fully commit to this show's killer premise and themes.

Marvel's Runaways Season 1 came onto the superhero TV scene with a great deal going for it. Helmed by teen drama experts Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, adapted from a classic comic book run by Brian Vaughan (with his involvement!), and featuring a highly likeable cast of both newcomers and veteran TV actors, this show had narrative energy to burn.

Unfortunately, Season 1 didn't seem to really know what to do with all of that narrative energy. After a strong first few episodes, the show lingered in a liminal state of will-they-won't-they when it came to the tenuous relationship between the show's teen characters and their villainous parents. When the Season 1 finale ends with the show's teenaged characters finally running away from their parents with a defined mission to

Runaways: Lyrica Okano Weighs In on Episode 2's Brutal Mother/Daughter Brawl, Fallout for 'Deanoru' Romance

Whew, talk about a Staff meeting.

In Episode 2 of Marvel’s Runaways‘ second season (now playing on Hulu), Nico (played by Lyrica Okano) fell into quite a parent trap when she showed up at her family home to reclaim the Staff of One. What followed was a startlingly intense throwdown between mother and daughter — one that threatened to claim some collateral damage along the way, in Nico’s friends.

TVLine spoke with Okano about slugging it out with TV mom Brittany Ishibashi, how the fallout of the fracas affects the nascent Nico/Karolina romance, and “darker” times still yet to come.

‘Marvel’s Runaways’ Review: Season 2 Compromises Strong Characters With Poor Plot Choices

  • Indiewire
“Marvel’s Runaways,” in its return to Hulu for a second season, launched with the advantage of a great premise: What if a group of teenagers found out that their parents were supervillains? It’s an idea loaded with both emotional weight as well as huge narrative potential, but creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, facing 13 episodes instead of 10, unfortunately chose to err on the side of plot.

This wasn’t the case last time. The first season of “Runaways” was by and large set-up for the larger story — which is another way of saying that the eponymous characters didn’t actually get around to running away until the final moments of the season finale. But that time was spent on thoroughly developing their dynamics, creating a show that was far more teen soap than superhero drama, in all the best ways.

Season 2 starts off strong, with a commitment to
