Final Space

Final Space is a space opera comedy-drama television series created by Olan Rogers for TBS and Cartoon Network’s late night programming block Adult Swim.

The series involves an astronaut named Gary Goodspeed and his alien friend, Mooncake, and focuses on their intergalactic adventures as they try to solve the mystery of “Final Space”.

For an animated cartoon style show, this has surprising depth of story and fun characters. The premise even has a reasonable scifi idea. The only thing that really falls short is the badder-than-bad villain.  But it turns out than even he has a surprising origins story.
