Close Enough is an American adult animated sitcom created by J. G. Quintel (the same creator of Regular Show) for HBO Max and Netflix (worldwide).


The series is about a milennial couple called Josh and Emily with their daughter, Candice and their divorced friends, Alex and Bridgette who live with them in a duplex located in Los Angeles.

Why It Rocks

  1. Marvelous animation done with a simple but acceptable art-style which is similar to Regular Show in character design and background
  2. It relates the topic about the poverty on millennial families. An interesting topic that can be related to adults.
  3. Likable characters who have a great dynamic with each other (specially the protagonists Josh and Emily who are responsible parents and they care about their daughter, Candice).
  4. Energetic writing. There are lots of entertaining and well-executed plots.
  5. Talented voice acting. For example: J.G Quintel as Josh and Jason Mantzoukas as Alex.
  6. The humor is clean and balanced. It keeps "sexual and violent" jokes to a medium showing those ones occassionally without being limited to them unlike most adult cartoons.
  7. Good life lessons to adults such as "Being an oldman isn't bad" and learning to say no to your boss
  8. Cool easter eggs such as The Park Cameo in "Perfect House".
  9. Catchy theme song. Unlike Regular Show it has an intro.

Bad Qualities

  1. Though the show itself is funny and well-written, it can occasionally feel a little bit too similar to Regular Show following the formula where it starts off with a normal problem and then some supernatural occurrence or weird crazy thing happens.
  2. Alex can be irritating at times depending on your point of view.
  3. Because the episodes last 11 minutes long instead of 22 minutes long unlike how they were originally planned to last. There's not enough time for subplots and most of them end rushed.


  • Jessica DiCicco, actress of Candice, is also currently portraying Annie Bramley and Lynn Loud Jr./Lucy Loud in the Nickelodeon shows It's Pony and The Loud House.

Maybe so they could make it like J.G. Quintel's previous show, which also had 11 minute long episodes.

Who knows, maybe they could make a double-length episode soon.
