The Superhero Show Show #340

Amazon’s The Boys vs. The Umbrella Academy

On this week’s episode of The Superhero Show Show, The Taste Buds discuss the first two episodes of The Boys season 2, and the finale of The Umbrella Academy!!!

After weeks and weeks of just watching a couple of episodes a week – LIKE NORMAL PEOPLE – the time has finally come for The Taste Buds to catch-up to everyone else and see how the second season of The Umbrella Academy ends. How will the Hargreaves make it out of this one? And, more importantly, what do we think will happen in the third season? What happens in the current season is always less important than what could happen later. As if that wasn’t enough, the penultimate Shushie of the year is handed out. It’s the best actress Shushie, so we all know it’s going to Regina King, but maybe it’ll be interesting to see who else gets nominated? Let’s see…what else, what else…OH! How about a sit down with ex-host Taylor about The New Mutants, the state of movie theaters, and the Dune trailer, and a breakdown of the fourth and fifth episodes of Lucifer’s fifth season, including the black-and-white episode!
