JG Quintel's latest animated series Close Enough has FINALLY arrived after years of arrival and of course, everyone is going to immediately think of Regular Show, but it's so much more than "adult" Regular Show! But also, why did this show take so long to come out? What can we expect in season 2? Allow us to take you through the journey that brought Josh, Emily, Candice, Alex and Bridgette to our screens, alongside how it contrasts to Regular Show!

tbh i feel like this show would be more funny for young kids who understand adult themes. it just had somethings in it that would work better if it was in regular show. its just uncomfortable.

JG Quintel is proof that the ”SoCal” art style can be individualized. It doesn’t ”all look the same”

16:51 the painting is the burger fro regular show where they put a burger in a patty. You only get 1 per person in 100 years and whoever doesn't eat it is a chump. then benson ate both the burgers.

I'm an adult in my 30s with kids and I loved this show. I think it's pretty wholesome in that Josh and Emily's relationship is pretty positively represented. Way too many shows just focus on conflict between married people and always have them being toxic towards each other. I think it's great that they show Josh and Emily's marriage being pretty great in general and how supportive they are of each other. Most adult shows about families just have the husband be a lazy asshole and the wife wife a generally competent person who holds everything together with one or more snarky kids.

I’m not sure about other countries but something I find interesting is that in Australia (where hbo max isn’t available) close enough is on Netflix and it’s called a Netflix original so I wonder if Netflix will ever be involved with the production of the show or if it will just beg a thing with the licensing

Regular Show creator: I wanna make Mordecai say Damn shit and so forth. You know what ill make a regular show for adults in the background coming towards the end of regular show. They'll never see it coming.😏 Me: Did I hear Mordecai say pissed? I know the creator just itching to make his characters curse.🤣🤣🤣

I really enjoyed it, as an artist they won me over with their animation style, I love the fact that they didn't have to overindulge in cussing, nudity and all basic "overplayed " adult animation scenarios,to prove that it's for adults or young adults. It's actually on Netflix now.

I remember when regular show first came out I was finishing up high school, so I found Mordecai and Rigby extremely relatable as they were close to my age, worked minimum wage, and were still sorta just big kids maturity wise- just starting to grow up.

I don't know, it pretty much IS Regular Show for adults. You can say it has as many differences as you wish but at the end of the day, it starts with character doing something mundane, then builds up to something strange, wacky or just supernatural. Not to say it's bad. I prefer Regular Show though.

I've grown with both these shows and it makes them so special to me. I was a late teen/early twenties slacker when Regular Show was on and it really did "speak" to me. And now that I'm in my late twenties with a kid of my own, Close Enough has done the same thing. Its cool to be growing with a creator like this.

This was a solid review but idk if I 100% agree with all of it. Close Enough is a good show and pretty funny, but "one of the most important animated shows to come out in a long time?" Bob's Burgers exists and has been taking on the whole "Unprepared Parent" topic as an animated family sitcom for years. Maybe not as directly or absurdly, but still. Bob and Linda have their own stories outside of their kids and never fail to show up for them. It’s got an equally interesting ensemble between both adults and children, plays with class in interesting ways, and can get pretty surreal at moments. I guess my point is that shows like Close Enough have existed for a while. This doesn’t make it bad. And it’s still miraculous that Close Enough came out at all! But I don’t think it’s doing anything super different and exciting when I think about some of the stuff we’ve seen over the years. Add that to the fact that some of the episodes feel super rushed/some characters are pretty underdeveloped, and calling it "the most important animated shows to come out in a long time" doesn't really fit. To me, it’s a pretty good family sitcom, by a genius animation showrunner, with a very specific sense of humor. And hopefully it'll get better as it goes on! If I WAS going to label a 2020 show as super innovative I'd probably go with Primal. I mean, when was the last time you saw an action-based drama with 2 silent protagonists on television, PERIOD?! Much less in animation?! It’s so simple, it’s so fresh, IT’S AESTHETICALLY BEAUTIFUL, and it takes GIANT risks with every single episode! Primal's just this masterclass in storytelling and I can’t believe people aren’t talking about it as heavily online.

Josh and Emily trying to be "cool parents" reminds me a lot of Bob and Linda Belcher, which I think is a huge plus.
