Final Space S1-2
The imprisoned astronaut Gary and his destructive sidekick Moonkick – who looks like an adorable, harmless little green alien – travel through the universe to find out where it ends, and if it actually exists.
While not as wildly revered as other adult animated comedies such as Big Mouth or Rick and Morty, Final Space offers bite-sized intergalactic adventures that will keep you entertained while you wait for new episodes of the latter. The Los Angeles Times says, “It clips along and looks good – the space backgrounds and a bioluminescent planet in black-light colours are especially lovely – and there are not so many animated space serials around that, even with its faults, Final Space doesn’t have a niche to fill.”
Den of Geek, however, says that it’s striving to be much more than your average goofy animated comedy: “Final Space dresses itself up as a goofy, nonsensical adventure through outer space, but underneath that costume is a deep, challenging series that strives to be much more than an animated comedy.”
