    [Season 1]

    Love seeing some of my favorite animators and creators collaborating on a fun creative show on a major platform like Adult Swim!

    I’ve been a big fan of Zach Hadel for a long time, as well as a lot of Michael Cusack’s work. Their brands of humor and animation blend together very well.

    Honestly, considering the reputation of the Matrix sequels, I did not hate this nearly as much as I expected to. I actually really enjoyed it! 

    The first act stumbled and honestly had me a bit worried at first, but it quickly corrected and found its footing. By the time it got to the fight sequence where Neo fights all those Smiths in a courtyard, I was all in. That scene, along with the freeway sequence HAVE to rank up there among…
