    the animation does hold relevance to the pod but I agree it's distracting but I'm also realizing it all was needed for the overall picture and concept of the series.

    I’ve seen this show 2 separate time once on acid and once just for fun and honestly it’s great either way. The messages are more clear when on nothing but when on acid you see the point in the show and the subtle messages that only the animation can give you if you are only paying attention to the words spoken by the characters

    Honestly, i get your point and it makes sense but I feel the clutter helps the viewer...just like in adventure time the flashy colorful background eases the viewer into it, putting the viewer in a state of calmness or relaxation making it seem like a "Kids Show" or something easy to digest, and then out of nowhere comes this really good point. It gives the viewer a false sense of security and then hits them with hard cold issues and or statements that make him/her think about it . Not completely disagreeing with you in fact I also feel it sometimes overdoses this trope. Nothing big just my opinion, but either way good video

    Well this is about as terrible and unfunny like the improvized humor episodes of Rick and Morty. Animation should be made first, THEN voice acting, not the other way around. They might as well just show pretty pictures around the interviews, they have about as little to do with them as this animation.

      Also i assume the pilot was insane and not attached to the interview to bring people in that otherwise wouldn't even love after it. I wasn't a fan at first but was blown away by episode three. Hope that makes sense.

    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.

    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?

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!!!

    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.

    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

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.

    I felt the same way about the animation and I actually noticed it was weird from the first episode. It felt like one of those Game Grumps Animated videos, where the animation depicts what's happening in the game and they sometimes react to it, but often they are babbling about other stuff.
