Gary, an astronaut, is finishing up his prison sentence aboard the Galaxy One. That's when he meets Mooncake, an adorable little green alien, and vows to keep him safe. Little does Gary know, however, that Mooncake is as dangerous as he is adorable since he's actually a planet-destroyer weapon. Together, the odd duo embarks in several adventures as they explore the mystery of the "Final Space" in this animated comedy.

Final Space is working from a template, but it's adding colors that make these journeys well worth taking.

"Final Space" isn't officially part of the "Star Wars" universe, but I'm guessing Supreme Commander George Lucas will make room after watching this plucky new animated series from Conan O'Brien's production company.

It's hard to ask people in the Peak TV era to stick with an animated comedy that's not exactly working on any level.

Feb 15, 2018 | Full Review…

The main problem with Final Space, unfortunately, is its hero: Gary simply isn't an engaging enough character to carry this series.

It clips along and looks good - the space backgrounds and a bioluminescent planet in black-light colors 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.

Feb 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Space-set animated comedy not that funny, pretty violent.

Feb 28, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.

Feb 27, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Like most shows, it falls prey to the rule of "give it a few episodes and then it'll get good," but it's charmingly animated and bite-sized to boot, so it's worth sitting through the shaky opening episodes to get to what lies beyond.

Feb 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Final Space swerves so severely from comedic beats in one moment to dramatic gut-punches in the next that you'll find yourself laughing just before the wind gets knocked out of you and your jaw hangs open in disbelief.

Feb 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There's potentially something here for everyone as long as what everyone is looking for is also some low-brow escapism featuring a main character who seems partially designed to test the viewers' patience.

Audience Reviews for Final Space: Season 1

  • Jan 04, 2020
    The overused story tropes, the cliche characters, plus the lazy worldbuilding make this show terrible.
  • Jan 01, 2020
    A futuristic animated series all about saving the universe ( cuz that sounds cooler) and friendship. Overall its action packed and hilarious
  • Dec 25, 2019
    I gave "Final Space" a chance and was not disappointed: The protagonist is "Guybrush Threepwood of Space"... at first not very likable, a bit clumsy, a bit self-centered but with a vague plan & a bit of luck (+ good friends). You can a great narrator, cool side characters, a buddy story, a small but violent antagonist and a lot of epic space action.
  • Dec 24, 2019
    Amazing characters and storyline.
  • Dec 24, 2019
    If South Park met the Fifth Element in the pages of Heavy metal magazine then this is probably what would come out of that union. its fast paced, comedic and thoroughly entertaining sillyness and long may it continue to grace our screens!
  • Dec 17, 2019
    This show has an infinite amount of heart put into it.
  • Dec 16, 2019
    This is one of the few cartoons that kept me in suspense almost all the time, dispensing a large portion of humor as well as sadness. It looks great, the music perfectly matches the climate and tone of the cartoon, plus the phenomenal cast makes the whole season watch with bated breath.
  • Dec 15, 2019
    So heartwarmingly joyous, this adult cartoon that isn't too adult-y is just what you need to put a smile on your face. A well-connected and embedded narrative guides all the enjoyable adolescent fumblings and just leaves you fully satisfied and a little more whole.

    The main hero, Gary, might be an aquired taste. He's just so overly dramatic. Once I got past that it's a pretty good show. Not sure how I got over it. Maybe it's the other things taking place that make the show interesting. Or maybe there are now things for Gary to realistically be dramatic about so it's not that big of an issue. Fact is, a few episodes in, this show starts to be pretty good. The comedy is pretty fresh with it's weirdness that's focused around: "Yeah I guess it's pretty weird, but lets do this" vibe. The visuals are stunning. And did find myself caring for the inviduals, which led to some heartbreaking moments and a feeling of suspense.

    Really did touch my heart. And has clever comedy and an outstanding cast.
