David Wain’s “Wet Hot American Summer” franchise continues its unlikely expansion with this second Netflix season (following “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp”), which is superior to its predecessor thanks to its fairly straightforward plot. Mind you, that’s not to say that it’s straightforward at all really, but mostly that it’s less convoluted and unnecessarily difficult to follow. The entire returning cast is as good as they’ve ever been, while new additions (like Adam Scott, taking over for Bradley Cooper) fit right in. It’s a whole lot of fun for fans of the franchise but newcomers may end up hopelessly confused from the first episode.
Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)
