Season 1 was incredibly good. Season 2 was incredibly bad.
1 February 2019 | by I_Am_LegacySee all my reviews

Firstly let me rate both seasons separately. Season 1: 10/10 Season 2: 2/10

Season 1: From the first episode I was hooked, it was one of the best and unique shows I have watched in a while, the jokes were funny and the whole concept of what the main characters had to do was hilarious. All 3 main characters were very likable and the character development was great. There was not a single episode I didn't like in season 1. If you haven't watched it, stop wasting time and go watch it.

Season 2: I was very disappointed with season 2, they took all the character development, all the fun and wacky concepts from season 1 and threw them away. The show became something more akin to a rubbish sitcom complete with a musical, and there was some slight political pandering that should have been kept out of the show, there was good parts of the episodes and funny parts, where I would laugh the whole way through season 1, season 2 would only get a giggle every now and then and watching the episodes became a slog. My favorite character of the show Wolf, turned into a completely different person, I would say he had the most character development of any character in season 1 and in season 2 it was like it never happened and he was someone else.

The one redeemable aspect of season 2 is that the last 2 episodes did get back the feel of season 1 and if there is to be a season 3 I really hope they capture that magic of season 1 once more, it would be a shame to see such a great concept of a TV show die. I really hope someone important see this review ( doubt it ) and makes sure that season 3 goes back to season 1s glory. I would also heavily advise to stay away from any politics, franchise after franchise are failing due to them becoming political and I do not want to see Future Man go this way. Seth Rogen is capable of producing something better than season 2, I hope he and the other producers realize that season 2 was definitely not where fans wanted the series to go.

Overall the series would get 7/10 I wish I could give it higher but season 2 almost ruined everything about the show. I hope season 3 will be better and that the producers read the user reviews and see on what areas they can improve.
