Critic Reviews for Close Enough Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

Combined with the truth of a lost social contract allowing a clear path to stability and security, Close Enough has the potential to be a defining show of the 2020s.

Without loving Close Enough, I found the show close enough to effective that the eight episodes I watched went by quickly. I'll be curious to see how the series and Quintel continue to evolve and mature.

Jul 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Close Enough should be enjoyed for what it is; an escape from our responsibilities as adults in the modern day. A perfectly outlandish and gloriously hysterical exploration of 30s-something adulthood.

Jul 28, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Its many nostalgia-based in-jokes may not be able to lure in viewers on either side of its tightly targeted demographic, but if you fit in that range, it's effective and entertaining.

Jul 13, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Close Enough retains a sense of fun all throughout, even as it expresses the frustrations of a generation still finding its footing in a sense, while beginning to raise their own kids.

Jul 13, 2020 | Full Review…

The highest praise I can give Close Enough is that I actually want to see more of it, which is not always the case, and I look forward to whatever comes next.

Jul 13, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Close Enough is a perfectly outlandish and gloriously hysterical exploration of 30s-something adulthood.

Jul 11, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Quintel has made something weird here, then, but that's expected. Putting that aside, what's also here, even if it's occasionally only intermittently, is a fun, likable comedy.

Jul 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

People who grew up watching Regular Show will find solace in Close Enough, which tackles relatable themes of a domestic lifestyle with a blend of familiarity and adult humor.

Jul 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Between the bizarre stuff will hopefully be a fun comedy about adults who are resisting having to grow up.

Jul 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Unlike Regular Show, Close Enough consistently channels its random energy and silly characters to make a bigger, more interesting point.

Jul 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Close Enough is a departure from Quintel's Regular Show in a number of ways, but the heart and humor serve as the connective threads.

Audience Reviews for Close Enough: Season 1

  • Jul 24, 2020
    JG Quintel, creator of Cartoon Network's Regular Show, debuts a more adult-oriented animated series with Close Enough, a cartooney, zany and fully relatable experience. Quintel once again shows that he's a minor genius when it comes to concocting animated hijinks, and this show is surreal even for the medium! With episode concepts including the characters getting stuck in an inter-dimensional sit-com, to befriending a human-dog hybrid, Close Enough is heavy on imagination, yet it never loses its human touch. Its themes on parenting are always apt, and like Man Seeking Women, the absurdist metaphors lead to both laughs and ample character development. Also, while the show has an episodic format (at least for now), it miraculously puts in so much material within it 10-15 minute increments! If the Covid-19 pandemic does indeed lead to a new plethora of animated series, then Close Enough will be at the forefront of this!

    Way more impressive then I ever thought it could be. It's not a show for your dad, but I relate too much to this.
  • Jul 20, 2020
    Poorly Drawn & Animated, Obnoxious millennial 'Fist Bumping' Mannerisms, and Ridiculous Plots & Situations all add up to a Bucket of Pig Sh!t as far as Entertainment is concerned. 'CLOSE ENOUGH' (?) Not - Even - Close.

    The show is great. it has all the funny and unsuspected turns that are needed. I will be watching this a few more times.
  • Jul 18, 2020
    I grew up with J.G Quintel's cartoon network series Regular Show as a kid over 10 years ago. Watching this show now is like a mix of nostalgia and excitement. Quintel returns to a familiar formula he created for Regular Show, and it hasn't lost traction today. Close Enough innovates and reinvents Adult Animation while maintaining a childlike demeanor that can be admired by all, delivering solid laughs along the way.
  • Jul 16, 2020
    Great nostalgic jokes with funny adult humour from the creator of my favorite childhood show, I'm I dreaming? Good show by JG Quintel looking forward to future seasons. Edit: Watched second half of episodes and loved all the episodes to death.
  • Jul 15, 2020
    Retains all the irreverent weirdness of Regular Show but for adults, and it's hilarious
  • Jul 15, 2020
    Feels like regular show, yet it feels like something ENTIRELY new. Cannot wait to see more of this show. I watched it all in one night. There is no down moments, and there are lots of laugh's! Emily and josh's relationship is amazing too. My favorite episode is Skate dad, as it showed candice, josh, and emily's relationship
  • Jul 14, 2020
    Hilarious, cute, and relatable. The way the characters interact with each other is super wholesome, the jokes are in the J.G. Quintel fashion. This show makes small real life boring problems, and amplifies them in a humorous and relatable way. Amazing show.

    One of the best irreverent animated comedies I've ever seen.
