Screener Squad: Extraordinary

Extraordinary Series Review


Imagine a world where everyone gets a super power on their 18th birthday. Well, almost everyone. From Walt Disney Studios comes Extraordinary, the story of Jen, a snarky, 26 year old slacker, and one of the rare people who doesn’t have a superpower. That’s right, she’s like Mirabel in Encanto, if Mirabel starred in a raunchy, episodic UK comedy, surrounded by people who can instantly induce orgasms by touch, 3D print objects with their ass, or shapeshift into a cat named Jizz Lord. Did I mention this was a Disney series? Superfriends Sarah Jane, Jordan, and Marco discuss why  you should set aside any superhero fatigue you might be feeling, and give this new Hulu series a shot.

Marco Noyola (Digital Noise, Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad, Audio Editor)

Sarah Jane (Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad)

Sarah Jane was born and raised in Southern California but currently calls Austin, TX her home. She’s seen over 5,700 movies so far with zero plans on stopping. She has a penchant for all things exploitation, and she loves Godzilla with all her heart. Her favorite films are Deep Red, Le Samourai, and Miller’s Crossing. When she isn’t watching movies, she’s busy herding her four cats, her husband, and her 11-year-old kiddo. She’s been a contributor to TalkFilmSociety, Daily Grindhouse, FThisMovie!, Looper, and the Austin Chronicle. You can find her on Twitter and Letterboxd at @fookthis.



Jordan Cobb (Screener Squad)

Born with a comic book in one hand, a camera in the other, and in front of the television as WrestleMania played out, Jordan Worth Cobb was thus birthed into this crazy world. A Digital Filmmaking major from the University of Central Arkansas, Jordan has done it all in film from directing, writing, editing, and producing in addition to skills involved in film and TV criticism, journalism, and years of podcasting experience. On any given day, her ADHD riddled brain bounces focus from film to pro wrestling to TV to superheroes to noir to video games to espionage and yes, even to sports. She played little league you know. For more of this eccentric nerd, you can follow her on Twitter here and read her original writings on Deepest Corners of My Notebook.
