Last I spoke of Solar Opposites was in 2020, after the SDCC panel announced another two seasons. This show has been a staple in my household since its release in early 2020. It satiated my growing need for animated science fiction shows and brought that unfiltered comedy I desperately desired. So today, I will give my season three review as spoiler-free as possible.
In this season of Solar Opposites, The Wall saw a dramatic shift that honestly left me speechless. For those not in the know, the younger of the two aliens, Yumyulack and Jesse, shrunk many adults. These adults now live in a multi-leveled terrarium that has a dictator. The leader in power has shifted over the seasons; however, in season two, we left with Tim as the man in charge. I felt we saw much more of The Wall as season three progressed. This honestly was fine by me; I genuinely enjoy seeing the changes in leadership and raising tensions. But, overall, I was utterly dumbfounded when I saw that final episode with Cherie’s big scene.
The Solar Opposites
Regarding the main cast, I felt season three was the best yet. We got to explore more of Korvo and Terry’s relationship and how being on Earth has impacted it. In addition, all of the characters saw significant growth, well, as much as these goofballs can. I also enjoyed seeing stories driven by the Pupa. One-off adventures from the Pupa were a little strange, but that is to be expected. It was interesting to see its personality shine through. In the end, the humor I crave when I sit down to watch the show is still there, which is a win in my book.
Odds and Ends
If you want to get in on the action, check out Solar Opposites on Hulu. Unfortunately, while season four has been confirmed, there is no current release date as of yet. However, if there are any fun science-fiction comedies you enjoy, I would love to hear them in the comments below!
