Why It Rocks

  1. The animation appears simple at first, but with some gorgeous and aesthetically pleasing scenes, it changes this mindset.
  2. Likeable characters with a wide cast of characters and a voice cast (minus Gary).
  3. It has enough originality to stand on its own, so it doesn't rehash space tropes or plots.
  4. This show manages to represent a vastly unrepresented genre: heartfelt comedy. 
  5. The music is spot on, they hit the scene perfectly almost every time and really added that final touch to make it truly feel like a sci-fi show rather than just another animation.
  6. The character development in this show is brilliant, like, towards the end, one can't help but really feel part of the squad and understand the relations/struggles the characters have towards another.
  7. The second season showcases an improvement in animation.
  8. Touching scenes and beautiful moments towards the end of the second season.
  9. Cliffhanger at the end of season 2 leaves you asking for more.
  10. Gary's relationship with his mother is explored in a very thorough way.

Bad Qualities

  1. Gary, our main protagonist, can be a little bit annoying; He talks too much, has some corny lines, and occasionally spouts desperate-for-attention jokes that only middle-school aged children and younger could laugh at.
  2. The plot is a little bit all over the place.
  3. The first few episodes can be off-putting for viewers, as Gary's annoying personality is hard to deal with.
