Inside Job
score: 6/10

you can watch it while eating or drawing its fine for that but overall pretty mediocre show imo. it sorta has potential tho.

inside job is a netflix animated comedy about conspiracies and stuff. Im assuming youve already watched it but you can also read this if you havent yet i wont spoil it.

ig ill start with what i liked about it. first of all i rlly like the concept.. i mean conspiracies are very interesting and stupid most of the time and a bit creepy thats perfect for an adult animated show and gives you many cool plot and joke opportunities. Its also cool that the creator of gravity falls worked on this cuz i love gravity falls (doesnt everyone? lol). Also the animation is pretty nice. the two main characters Reagan and Brett are alright personally i didnt care too much about them but i know a lot of people like them. theyre decently developed and have a nice dynamic. there are some funny jokes here and there but thats mostly all the good that stood out to me.

now ill get to the things that bothered me. first things first it wasnt all that funny (humor is subjective ofc this is my opinion) it had a lot of jokes but they just werent that good most of the time. they relied on references a lot which is to be expected since the whole show is largely based on pop culture and i dont hate those jokes inherently but they felt kinda forced and outdated most of the time. there was a "like a boss" joke in the first episode like dude. in 2021? Since they spent all their character development on brett and reagan the rest of the cast are basically only for comedic relief. Except theyre not funny. most of the jokes are about how theyre assholes. the fungus and the drug guy have pretty much the same personality and the other girls whole thing is basically saying "let me take a selfie before canceling you on twitter. hashtag L.O.L."
there was also some underlying cringe shit too like weird portrayal of addicts, they keep using the word Asperger idk just lame shit like that theres some more.

eventho the animation was nice i didnt like the artstyle that much i wish they went with something more original instead it just looks like another rick and morty clone. but i think that sums it up pretty well its in that awkward spot between being just another forgettable netflix show and being one of the good tm adult animations. i think it has the potential to be an 8/10 in the second season if they quit the weird shitty things (a lot could be fixed if they just gave some development to the side characters that would make the show funnier too)

update: i just watched the second season and well, i kinda like it even less now. honestly i dont get why its popular online when its just so painfully... mid. the characters are as one dimensional as ever and the jokes are just so lazy and bad. idk the humor is just what i can describe as "some 34 year old vaguely liberal (but in an ~edgy~ way) dudes who are into podcasts got together to make the most average and cynical adult animation netflix show ever". like no scene is allowed to be serious and no character is allowed to be intimidating they all have to break any immersion that happens to occur with some lame lamp shading, 4th wall breaking joke. and besides a handful of characters the entire cast could be easily replaced by each other. what i mean by that is the way they write character interaction never feels like something a person would actually say, its all just excuses for more jokes. and the jokes arent character or even situation specific, they could be said by anyone at any time. whatever i dont wanna turn this into some reddit rant cause who cares. the show got canceled anyway. oh but! At least we got like 56 more celebrity cameos. hurray! doesnt everyone love those? (i am a hater and the show has no charm whatsoever to me. at least the concept is kinda cool.)
