So in the first episode it addresses almost every single point I brought up in my review of Season 1. It's almost as if they read it?!! Lol obviously not but someone with common sense must have spoke up and told them to fix it. So they tried!
Season 2 is a GIANT departure from Season 1. Animation bright cartoony vs S1 muted palette. The flashbacks happen less frequently and in a more organized manner. The story is addressed as to why they'd send 100 non combatants to place where soliders got destroyed at before. Exposes more of the behind the scenes manipulation of world powers. Sound not as good though.
It's tolerable and is more cohesive but it's still not amazing. When you have couple million cockroach hybrids, the odds are stacked so incredibly against them. There's not really any stakes and it's not surprising when anyone dies. Although this season they cut down on the deaths, but that's probably the only thing I enjoyed from S1. Because there was zero way 100 soliders could fight off the millions of bugs there. Add to it the bugs don't feel pain, have other hybrid genes spliced in and are super smart and they were sent with no weapons!
It's like they tried to reboot S1 but this direction wasn't much better. To top it all off, they leave a "cliff hanger" ending. What IDIOT thinks they're going to do a third season of this train wreck 🤣🤣🤣
