Perhaps the greatest animated show of all time, I sat down like I do every night and stroaked my little doggo carl while I thought long and hard about what to watch "Think think think" is what I like to do to stimulate thought. That was when Smiling friends came on Adult Swim. I was immediately put into pure ecstacy as I watch episode after Episode. By the end of it i was seeing visions of Dan Ackroid telling me about his crystal skull vodka. I could not get the sight of his phallic like nose however. All is well though and I sincerly recommend this show to anyone who exists.

Some of the best comedic TV I've seen in a long time. So much passion and thought is put into every aspect of the show by Zach and Michael and each episode feels like a labor of love. It's not a just a goofy half-baked animated show, it's script has an understanding of how to make characters interact and plays off of the quirks they set up for each character. Every episode catches you off guard in the best way.

A solid animated show not filled with pseudo intellectual riff raff, and just a fun and internet rich references. Just cartoon character's having real world problems. I knew this show was gonna be good after watching the pilot! And to all the individuals that have said they bought the season and can only watch 2 episodes that is because of tv rights, this season is still airing, once they air you'll be able to watch them and they will be added to your library. Hope you find this review helpful!
