Final Space 2×01

So I watched the new series premiere of Final Space. Shhh! I know I’m not supposed to have it yet, being in the UK and all, but I couldn’t wait any longer. Appropriately, the episode revolves around a theft, whaddaya know.

I was desperately nervous going in just in case it was no longer the show I loved, but it still is! And a lot of the people we thought might be dead are 100% not dead! Quinn is possibly dead but seeing as her future self still exists, can she actually conceivably in any way be dead? (A question also sort of vaguely tackled by Avengers: Endgame. Which is a fictional universe Final Space bears no small resemblance to!) Also, a particular person who appears to be deceased-ish I suspect will be brought back with a loophole, because he’s too good a character to let go. But I could be wrong! This show always surprises me.

(I could be referring to more than one character there couldn’t I? Interesting…)

The animation seems to have been knocked up a notch this series. Not that it wasn’t gorgeous before, but now the characters seem to move that much fluidly. And new voice cast! New characters! More female characters at that! A realistic amount of women (/female space robots) was the only major thing the last series was missing.

Psst. Maybe this’ll make up for my downloading it: GO WATCH FINAL SPACE! The first season should be on international Netflix so I BEG YOU, go look at it. Because nobody at all seems to watch it (beyond Reddit who got a shoutout in this episode, hooray) and we all know what happens to very, very good tragi-comic shows which nobody watches. I can’t take another Last Man on Earth scenario. Hurry quickly before anyone starts running numbers! Go go go!
