Inside Job Review 2021 Tv Show Series Cast Crew Online
This new sci-fi cartoon’s premise has a lot of promise, with endless clever ideas and attention to detail, but it feels coldly generic and too much designed by committee: the basic idea is Men In Black all over again, and the alcoholic dad is an obvious attempt to appropriate some of that Rick Sanchez vibe. None of the characters are even slightly likeable or relatable and the tone is too relentlessly busy, with no building of necessary tension or intrigue from one scene to the next. The script is one-liner after one-liner after one-liner and yet I didn’t laugh once.
If I was to try isolate what is chiefly wrong with it so that it could be fixed in the future, I guess I would sack most of the staff writer hordes, leaving only two or three of them to focus on building unique and relatable characters they personally find amazing and care about, and then start building up the individual episode scripts from there, rather than having the Family Guy manatees generate meaningless plots and situations from random pop culture references.
In the final analysis, Inside Job is a slick but soulless example of what is most commonly wrong with most corporate TV shows today, where the focus is too much on fabricating a bright and sassy product that can be reliably marketed, rather than telling a story anybody felt compelled to tell.
