  2. Joey Padron says:

    I’m excited for Flaked’s new season. Hope the trailer for season 2 will be out soon!

    I watched Snatched –
    it was a waste of time.
    My question is –
    after seeing it –
    why would someone need a second season?

    I’ll watch Superheroes Decoded….and probably buy the eventual bluray release.
