    The entire point is that there's meaningful dialogue happening while completely unrelated chaotic things occur around them. That's life. Everything that happens in this show is a synecdoche for the chaotic and uncontrollable nature of life, and how we have to find quiet and peace in this cacophony.

    Make sure you have two full days back-to-back off from work. Buy yourself a liquor of your choosing. Get about, a quarter of two types of weed.(body high 1/8 and then 1/8 mind high). At least one strip of acid. Watch this series on repeat. Enjoy the multiverse

    the last episode with his mother dying made me sad but not for the reasons you'd think, I was sad because I'll never feel that way about my mother I will not be mourning her loss when she dies.

    I accidentally started at episode 5, and I think it's a better fitting pilot episode than the zombies one, it really feels more like the start of a journey, cause **********MINOR SPOILERS*********** he is supposed to go to a chill planet and ends up in a totally different, dark souls like planet.

    I have to say I disagree that the format doesn't work, I think it works very well, but at the end of the day it's an opinion. Like many other people have already said, you definitely missed some connections between the animations and the dialogue. If you personally don't think that it works I have no issue with that, I will definitely admit that this show is not for everyone. Some people will love it and some will hate it. I definitely do agree with your point about the sound effects, I feel that the audio mixing could have been handled a bit better. The only real issue I have with your take on it is simply the fact that you insist that the format doesn't work as if it were a hard lined fact which couldn't be farther from the truth in this case. For me, the animations helped to introduce some levity to otherwise very heavy subjects and managed to do so, in my opinion, without reducing the seriousness of the subject matter. It helped me to relax while talking about some subjects that generally make me feel anxious, the idea of ones own mortality being a big one. I think the entire thing is brilliant quite frankly, though definitely a bit avant garde. That being said, I watch your reviews from time to time and I pretty much always enjoy them, even though I don't always agree with all of your points, and this one is no exception. I like the fact that you're still able to point out the things that you do like even when there are parts of it that you definitely don't like and this review is a great example of that. I personally think it's important to differentiate between things that are bad and things that you don't like and you tend to do a better job than many other reviewers on youtube.

    I just recently lost one of my closest childhood friends a couple weeks ago and the last episode got me completely. I was watching the show with my girlfriend (I don’t smoke or anything but she does so I enjoy the themes, she enjoys the visuals, win-win.) and we’d gotten through nearly the whole season to the final episode. I was watching it and thinking about my current situation nearly the whole time, but just about managing to keep it down, but once Clancy’s mom says “I’ll still love you always” or something along those lines while vanishing into the black hole I broke. I was just overtaken with emotion, and I broke down crying right then and there. This show has some clutter and random visuals, but if nothing else watch the final episode. It’s a myriad of the walk through life and if you’ve ever lost a loved one, it will hit you especially hard. It’s truly a beautiful piece of animation and story telling, and knowing the background now it’s even more touching. Anyways though, thank you Steve for this, I really enjoy your videos and commentary on the way to work sometimes so keep up the good work! :)

    The philosophy in this show is so basic i couldn't go past ep 4 Its literally the ramblings of shallow high people who are just now realizing basic facts and incoherences about life I had those at fourteen, and the amount of people who think these are mind blowing revelations heavily concern me, like you never stopped to ponder about the war on drugs, the value of life, introspection?

    Yeah! I think your right, I love the show, visually it's stunning, but i wanted a more cartoon driven narrative? everytime it switched to a podcast I can tell, it's super obvious and really took me out of it. I wanted the interviews to kinda be from the show? You know, talking about their lives as the characters in the show Loved it, but it's just..jarring

    I tried watching it and tried to understand what was going on, but I kept focusing on either the visuals or the podcast, making my experience with it irritating as I would rewind it and try to understand and, by the end of the episode, learned absolutely nothing of what's going on. Personally, I don't like the show cause it did feel very cluttered, and the only episode that I actually enjoyed was the last episode.

    I dont know under how many videos of this show I commented but I dont seem to get tired to do so. I love this show! Have seen the season maybe 20 times already and everytime I discover new details. And of course episode 8... damn no matter how many times I watch this when the point comes where Duncan asks "theres no way to stop the heart from breaking so what do you do against all that heartbreak?" And his mom simply answers with "You cry..." My own tears burst out of me before the animation on screen shows Clancy's tears... just like an waterfall.... and after that I always feel like a few Kilos fell off my chest. I hope they get to do another season!!!

The art is beautiful and the only thing I'd change is that there is only I episodes. Puts u in a headspace and really makes you think. This show us just beautiful

    Really pretentious show, still i think with how different is each episode they should be held separately, i would say the only ones that weren't full "fortune cookies" where the prison, the death and the mother episodes. The concept is actually good, but the execution is rather questionable, if they could give more focus and deep to a next season the show could truly be great.

    The Midnight Gospel is unique, it's the herald of a new genre. The animation represents the conversation in a metaphorical way, you can observe it if you change your narrow perspective.

    Yahh no I like midnight gospel more becouse of the animation not complementing what the characters are saying becouse then we get to see other parts of the world and storie separated of the main story of the character. It make the world feel even more alive. So yahh I Doo disagree of what you sead.

    I could see it both ways but I do think that's a zombie metaphor worked well with the drugs conversation at least what I seen it seemed as though it was trying to point out how scary something could look on the outside people are infected and falling apart and that's the only way you get to see it but once they were infected they realized it wasn't so scary on the other side which is a pretty apt metaphor for most drugs But it is also true that a lot of interesting things are going on in the animation and also going on in the conversation which makes it hard to focus on both specially someone like me with ADHD

I just finished it and it's a mixture between crazy situations and actual conversations between people. The first episode was a little odd but I liked how calm they were during a zombie apocalypse. Definitely a good change in pace. Also the last episode hit me like a truck. A beautiful and powerful message behind it. Please watch it if you have the chance

    For me the prison episode was the best one. Not only was it interviewing a person I already knew about and respected (occultist and mystic Jason Louv), but the theme of the interview (Buddhism and reincarnation) and the prison narrative (An inmate attempting to escape and being reborn and starting again every time he is killed, learning to be less violent each time) tied together nicely. And the song the prisoner sings at the end when their tongue grows back is nothing short of beautiful.

    Episode 1 is about psychedelics and hitting a high. They view being zombies as bad and try to escape but once they get bit they reach some kind of "nirvana". So I think the conclusion the interview's is leading to is pretty parallel with the story. In this case, the psychedelics are the zombies. That's what I could discern, there's probably more but I am dumb and don't want to watch it again to try to find more hints.

    I had no idea during my first watch of this series that the interviews were based on real podcasts, and the disconnects between what was happening on screen versus what they were talking about really spoiled the whole show for me. Especially hearing a blue hippo deer creature talking about growing up in the 80s or so while clowns were turning things in to meat. I'd have preferred more trippy but realism based animations like the episode with Clancy and his mom for ALL of the episodes honestly.
