Solar Opposites season 2 is a great continuation of season 1 with the same humor, same characters, and yes — more of The Wall!
If you have been following me for a while you know I compared the first season of Solar Opposites to Rick & Morty when it first came out. This makes sense because they are from the same creator and honestly, they are extremely similar. They both have the same kind of humor, and that continues on in season 2 of Solar Opposites. Basically if you enjoy Rick & Morty and the first season of Solar Opposites, you will enjoy season 2.
They is nothing groundbreakingly different in this second season of the show and that is OK. It would feel weird if they changed anything up. What you get is this alien “family” still crashed on Earth, just living their lives. Of course crazy things are going to happen to them, and probably they will never leave the planet. At least not permanently.
In Rick & Morty the basis of the show stays the same, there are just different situations the characters and put in, and that is the same with Solar Opposites. This show is about a “family” of aliens that escaped their planet before it was destroyed and landed on Earth. They are raising a Pupa, that will eventually transform. Something I don’t imagine we will see until the very end of the series.
One of my favorite parts about the first season is the boy alien shrinks down humans and puts them in what he calls “The Wall”. They have their own little world in there where sometimes the story goes. I was thrilled to see The Wall pop up again early on in season two. There is also an episode that pokes fun at the film The Lakehouse — that one might be my favorite of the season.
As with most shows, some episodes are better than others, but for me anyways, no episode of Solar Opposites can be described as bad. Just, not as funny. There are some great new adventures in season two that had me laughing until my sides hurt. Don’t expect a change of pace from the first season, but just know this season sticks to the same format and is just as good — if not better.
Solar Opposites takes things up a notch from season one as they decide to go bigger and bolder. The things that they poke fun at had me cracking up and each episode just gets better and better.
About Solar Opposites
Co-created by Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan, Solar Opposites centers around a team of four aliens who escape their exploding home world only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome.
Korvo (Justin Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty while Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love humans and all their TV, junk food, and fun stuff. Their mission: protect the Pupa, a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them, and terraform the Earth.
On season two of Solar Opposites, the Solar Opposites take it bigger, funnier, and more opposite than ever before.
