Review – SuperMansion S2 “I Didn’t Even Have to Use My J.K.”

Old grudges never die as Dr Devizo and the Injustice Club emerge to find a new base of operations. While they’ve taken a back seat since their virtual assault they’ve clearly been trying to get their act together. We see the stress of living underground and in the streets taking a toll on their general behavior as they all carry a little more angst along with them.

The League of Freedom in the meanwhile has a new gimmick to develop better social relations and a shift in their ranks as Robobot returns to their roots after an awkward reunion with its creator and their love for sci-fi religious pursuits. Sometimes it’s just better to cut out of a bad scenario and Robobot adapted to that in a hurry thankfully.

Rex’s group faces a new challenge as fame enters the picture, Saturn develops a deep sense of jealousy, Ranger can’t stand or trust actors, Rex has no interest in playing nanny and tour guide to a shadow and Portia just doesn’t care, she wants to legitimize the group and put all this damage behind the group so she can start putting some success on the board.

The Injustice Club faces challenges as the group fights over beds, broken furniture and general space. It’s a revolution within the group and democracy starts to emerge as Lex moves to take control of the group and become the latest leader to the gang. The only thing is, Devizo has been doing this for a long time and he knows a few things about running a gang of restless criminals so he’s not just going to fade away so easily.

As a whole “I Didn’t Even Have to Use My J.K.” continues a weird trend of Rex playing a secondary role in Season 2, each episode has had some random absent-minded move or decision and show of weakness that bites him and leaves Portia or the rest of the team to pick up the pieces. Unfortunately in this case it really opens up a very damaging future for the team and casts doubt on if Rex really can keep this team together when he can’t even keep his own house in order.

Review – SuperMansion S2 “The League of Cheesedom”

In the ongoing battle to redeem the league in the eyes of the public we see Rex and Portia take some drastic moves to appeal to a wider audience and monetize their celebrity status. But what would you expect from the endless spending from The League of Freedom when you combine it with a media tycoon like Portia? Sadly the events that follow take a sharp dive in classic SuperMansion form, but at least there are some silver linings.

The League of Cheesedom brings about a long arc for the episode using Rex and Portia, what it also does is introduce an origins story for Jewbot. While there have been many teasers about their origin and mechanics there was never anything terribly in-depth until now. From the start it seems the curious and pacifist minded Jewbot always held a reputation as being an anomaly, as our bot learns of their unwanted origins they take an emo turn for the episode until they stumble across some unique relatives.

The episode is part of a string of missteps and failures for The League of Freedom in establishing new trust and confidence with the public. They’re so thirsty for a break they’re often diving head first into anything they can get and having Portia on their side means everything gets thrown against the wall until it sticks. While that section was entertaining in itself, seeing Jewbot turn emo and struggle with a Five Nights at Freddy’s crew that plays Nine Inch Nails inspired tracks and wants nothing but death was pretty rewarding.

As a whole The League of Cheesedom was a consistent episode for season 2 that delivered on all fronts without jumping too far off the scales. Having Jewbot get some extra closure was a nice moment that also carried a few nice twists and put a nice bow on his messed up life story.

Review – SuperMansion S2 “School Me Once”

With Dr Devizo out of the picture for now and Rex’s secrets secured it’s on to new business for The League of Freedom. School Me Once drops everyone into a flashback of Rex and his younger years working with Zenith The Earth Mother. Flash forward to present day and Portia / Zenith is ripping him a new one.

Season 2 really has no love for Rex and the rest of the members are feeling the sting of the public pressure in School Me Once. We see tales of manipulation, mythical creatures, tales of yesteryear and Jewbot studying the stereotypical college experience. The cast moves to spring back from their downward spirals including Cooch who breaks off from her depression over Brad and discovers a new role to explore.

Even with such a splintered storyline the SuperMansion team allocates enough time for almost everyone to navigate their adventure in the episode. Saturn and Jewbot seem to take a hit on their story as suddenly things go from Thousand Island to flag pole butt in a hurry. Ranger falls into the like minds of his era with the college conservatives and mostly re-lives his youth through the episode.

 

The animation team does a solid job with modeling and gestures but they do manage to shine well with the team action sequence. The camera sweep along with the action create a sequence that goes beyond the norm for the show and it’s a rewarding experience as it’s not static while it goes on.

School Me Once is obviously an important step in the storyline but the Saturn section feels forced, having Jewbot wanting to understand and experience a frat makes sense because of his nature but the rest doesn’t hold well. It’s a short segment though and the rest of the episode holds the experience up to introduce a new key character in Portia /  Zenith.

Review – SuperMansion S2 “Virtual Reality Bites”

Crackle’s season première of SuperMansion is here, with The League of Freedom still trying to rebound from the betrayal of Lex and assault from Dr. Devizo the group also has to contend with public demands for their termination as a group.

Given they have chaos in the streets it’s not entirely that shocking the public wouldn’t be entirely happy with The League of Freedom, throw in some human rights violations by illegally storing criminals under the mansion and the massive rebuilding costs and yeah… It’s not like they weren’t already under a bad light from excessive spending issues and rebuilding costs after each battle.

We see Titanium Rex take center stage, he’s trying to get his team in order, fight dissenting public opinion and face down a massive data breach of the mansion. The team in the meantime has their own battles, with Brad dead we see American Ranger help Cooch with her grief and find hope in seeing Brad one day in the afterlife. Saturn goes borderline stalker trying to track down his nemesis and Jewbot stands at the center trying to help Rex bury some dirty laundry.

The episode brings the group back with classic tales of Rex and his endless issues while letting Jewbot settle into his new body and work his magic in a realm he’s more familiar with. The story stays just as wild as ever with American Ranger determined to take on the church to help Cooch break into heaven and Saturn takes his nemesis obsession to new levels trying to fill the void in his world. It’s SuperMansion at its roots essentially.

 

Virtual Reality Bites hasn’t skipped a beat, the props and animation are smooth with detailed scenes. Voice acting from Byran Cranston, Heidi Gardner, Tucker Gilmore and the rest of the team are spot on as their characters settle into their own in the start of the season.

SuperMansion is already setting up an interesting new season so we’ll just have to see where season 2 continues to go and how the team manages to handle all these escaped villains.

Animation:★★★★½ 
Acting:★★★★½ 
Overall:★★★★☆
