There’s just something so good about getting back to basics in a story, isn’t there? At the start, Adventure Time was the show about Finn & Jake, two bros duking it up in a post-apocalyptic Earth. It was a simple premise! However, then it became this vast high-fantasy world where everyone could potentially be a great story to tell. As a result, Adventure Time became one of the best cartoons of all time! Ironically, this led it to focus less on the duo that we started with. Yet the third Distant Lands special changes all of that by putting the focus firmly on this beautiful bromance. Finn and Jake are together again, because not even the forces of life and death themselves can stop a bromance this good.
Two things to know about Season Two of Close Enough: there’s a lot of parodies of movies. And that there are a lot of voice actors that guest star in it!
Well, here we are at the apparent end to the first season of Close Enough. I don’t know what’s crazier: the fact that I binged it all, or that I wrote all these reviews in one day? Fortunately, my love for this show has kept me going, and the last episode may be one of the funniest ones Quintel’s done. I had no idea he was such a big fan of Jim Carrey.
So, remember a few posts ago about how I said I’m taking notes on how to be a good parent? Well, after this episode, I’ve added two new notes to my book. Firstly, when I get married, I need to make an effort to keep the romantic spark alive with my spouse. Secondly, I need to make time to spend it with my future kids. This is the Quintel guide to important relationships.
You know what I’ve learned? That trying to force yourself to be cool or clinging too hard to your younger days can backfire on you. BIG TIME. Something that Josh and Emily both learn the hard way in this episode of Close Enough.
I don’t have kids yet, but I know what one of the great struggles of being a parent is. It’s the eternal struggle to bond with your kid and look cool to them. However, I do know what it’s like dealing with the stress of adulthood. Fortunately, Close Enough has me covered on both.
I said I would review every episode of the new show, Close Enough. And I meant it. Here’s episode 1!
I am beyond thrilled that Close Enough is now on HBO Max. Ever since it got announced more than two years ago, I’ve been pumped to see it on TV. But then TBS dropped the ball, so HBO Max had to pick it up. And they managed to score a slam dunk with it! Not only do we see series creator JG Quintel in top form, but I feel like this show’s come at such a crucial time in our lives. To be more specific, it’s come out a crucial time in the lives of millennials. We’re moving away from being young adults into full-fledged grownups and parents and facing new challenges. So, it’s great that we have a show that gives a voice to those issues while also making us laugh about them.
