What happens when you try to balance love and success? Netflix Geeked Week 2022 kicks off its Animated Showcase with the first look at Entergalactic, a rom-com musical with Scott Mescudi, a.k.a. Kid Cudi, voicing the title role of Jabari and Jessica Williams as Meadow. Here’s the synopsis per Netflix Media Center:
“Scott ‘Kid Cudi’ Mescudi and Kenya Barris join forces to present Entergalactic, an original, animated story about a young artist named Jabari — voiced by Mescudi — as he attempts to balance love and success.
Finding the latter brings Jabari a step closer to the former when moving into his dream apartment introduces him to his new neighbor, photographer it-girl Meadow — voiced by Jessica Williams. An explosion of art, music, and fashion, Entergalactic takes place in the only city that can handle all three: New York.”

Who doesn’t love a good adult animated sci-fi comedy? Geeked Week blesses us with an official trailer for Farzar, which seems to have a similar feel à la Futurama. Here’s the synopsis per Netflix Media Center:
“From the creators of Brickleberry and Paradise PD, Roger Black and Waco O’Guin, comes the outrageous sci-fi animated comedy series Farzar. Egotistical human warrior Renzo liberated the planet Farzar from the evil alien Bazarack, and then established a human settlement under a huge dome, becoming the Czar of Farzar.
Years later, Farzar is under attack by the evil aliens once again and Renzo’s well-meaning and not-so-bright son Prince Fichael ventures out with his special crew “S.H.A.T.” (Special Hostile Assault Team!), made up of a human-solider-turned-cyborg (Scootie), clashing conjoined twins (Val and Mal), an unhinged scientist (Barry Barris), a highly incapable mutant (Billy) and a mischievous little alien known as a chaos-celot. (Zobo).
As they begin their journey to fight the aliens that want to kill/eat them, Fichael quickly discovers that all is not what it seems and he may be living a lie.”
Brace yourself for intergalactic comedic hijinks when the 10-episode first season of Farzar streams soon on Netflix. Watch the official trailer below.
Inside Job: Part 2
If you loved Inside Job, Netflix’s animated sci-fi comedy series, then you’re in luck. A second season (or Part 2) is on the horizon! If you’re new to the governmental chaos, here’s a synopsis per Netflix Media Center:
“Inside Job is an adult animated comedy about the shadow government– and the dysfunctional team whose daily grind is committing the world’s conspiracies. From convoluted coverups to secret societies to masked orgy etiquette, navigating office culture at Cognito Inc. can be tricky, especially for anti-social tech genius Reagan Ridley.
Even in a workplace filled with reptilian shapeshifters and psychic mushrooms, she’s seen as the odd one out for believing the world could be a better place. Reagan thinks she can make a difference if only she could manage her unhinged, manifesto-writing father, her irresponsible coworkers and finally snag the promotion she’s been dreaming about.”
Led by a stellar cast including Lizzy Caplan and Christian Slater, Inside Job Part 2 will hit Netflix soon. Watch the first-look clip below.
