Sam and Max: What's New, Beelzebub?

Beelzebub wraps up season two in a thoroughly satisfying way, connecting all the dots in the story and going so far as to bring back many familiar faces, loved or hated, especially in the credits sequence. It has some of the better self-referential humor in the series, and definitely feels like how a finale should, at least better than the first one did. The puzzles weren't as clever as last time, but they made good enough sense to be enjoyable anyway. I thought the reveal of the real villain was lame, because I'm getting sick of that group, but the conclusion was satisfying enough. I know their budget is limited which is why they reuse characters and locations so much, but I think they've proven their ability to really explore the universe and hope the third season branches out even more. Maybe even make a new hub where each episode begins.
