For being a free to watch Youtube Product it is perfect in almost every way...but something big is missing

There are two parts of this series and I would like to rate them separately. In Space Part 1 Age 8+ The First part is a great show to watch as a family. I watched it with my kids and my parents and all of them loved it. The story has its complicated parts, but it all boils down to a time loop. Fun for all. However not enough MatPat! As we finishing it up though, I noticed a lack of two important characters: Warfstache (the fan favorite with the iconic pink mustache) and Darkiplier (The best written character in the series and the main antagonist). However they teased that Warfstache would be in Part 2 and since they come as pair I assumed Darkiplier would be in Part 2. In Space: Part 2 Age 14+ First I'd like to point out that the age rating in because the plot is confusing and requires a high amount of markiplier lore. My 8 year old and my mom ducked out early (they came back for the ending) So it was just me, my 15 year old son, and my dad. At first we enjoyed it a lot. They improved in two out of the three ways we asked. One, more MatPat, and two: Warfstache! But as we got to end scene i had saw that Darkiplier, the most important character in WHOLE SERIES was NOWHERE to be seen. Then (as the others came back in the room) there an end credits confirming that what ever was next...Darkiplier would be the focus. Essentially this was build up to the best character on YouTube. And I can't wait!
