As usual, this is a spoiler free review 😉
⚠️ This is not Rick and Morty (and that’s fine)
The first thing that drew me to this show as the apparent similitude with Rick and Morty. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
The characters, the storyline and the comedy is way different, unique, fresh. Final Space stands on its own and with good reasons.
The main character, Gary (also known as The Gary 🤣) is way too funny. He has been punished to roam the galaxy in a ship, alone. Without other people I mean. His friends are robots and the ship’s AI, until he meets other people as the story develops. Like Avocato, an awesome bounty hunter who also happens to be a man-cat (or a cat-man or just a cat?) 😼
The show is a roller coaster, a non-stop action-packed show with rich scenes, great animation and very well thought dialogue. I didn’t find any episode boring or meant to fill time. Everything is pure gold and I can’t wait for season 2.
The story develops clearly aiming for a season 2, as they leave a bunch of questions unanswered and with major cliffhangers 🙀
If you’ve liked things like Futurama or Rick and Morty, go watch Final Space right now.
Have you seen it? What did you think?
