Critic Reviews for Final Space Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

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

Feb 26, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

"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.

Feb 26, 2018 | Full Review…

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…

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…

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

Feb 26, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

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…

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

  • Mar 26, 2021
    Tight writing and a talented voice cast.
  • Mar 20, 2021
    Really unique characters and great humor most of the time. The overarching plot is quite intriguing as it progresses.

    Absolutely amazing. This season had me laughing and crying
  • Jan 30, 2021
    Muhteşem bir şey lan bu. Kesinlikle en sevdiğim çizgi dizilerde tahta oturmuştur.

    You will be lucky to get one chuckle per episode, unless you have the humour of a kid under 10... but then there are scenes that are way too graphic/mature for kids.

    I started watching this series as a goofy take on space operas. It has rapidly grabbed my interest and attention. I am so looking forward to season 3. Final Space is not afraid to take risks, including some very painful emotional moments. The family dynamics are realistic and impactful. The interminable unfulfilled romance of Gary and Quinn is also paid off in spades. Some of the character sacrifices in this series are truly inspirational and saddening. The true fabric of the cartoon remains the goofy, insane humour. Like all good stories, this has world building and a larger mythology. It does borrow from Lovecraft and Greek precursors significantly, but then again so does almost every modern mythos. The set pieces are also fantastic, at the same level as Guardians of the Galaxy, which could be called a strong parallel. The interdimensional adventures are very entertaining and epic in scale. The animation is quite dramatic and compelling, no less massive than a typical blockbuster. Some of the action sequences are hair raising and so beautifully done, amazing colour palettes and dynamic animation.

    Fun. Light hearted. Witty and emotional. All at the same time
  • Nov 26, 2020
    effortlessly funny, slick action sequences, and compelling (read, cute without being saccharine) characters
  • Nov 09, 2020
    I laughed and cried so hard. Loved every single second of it. Olan Rogers is a frickin' GENIUS!

    When i watched season one, i hated the main character due to the fact that he was so very annoying. However, the strength of the writing, and the supporting cast was enough for me to watch the whole thing. Even with the protagonists faults, it was not horrible. But it did feel as if i was being punished. Due to my conflict with the protagonist, i avoided the second series for a while. It seems that the shows writers knew of the back lash with the main protagonist, and even addressed it in the opening part. I was curious. They had kept the core character unchanged, but wrote him a lot less annoying, but with out changing him. And like that. And with very good writing over all, the series was a serious win for me in the end. I wait for the final series. And, i want Keven to get some love. Keven deserves some love. He has done so much for every one. KEVIN IS GREAT!
