Summary

Sex, violence, swearing, and little willies out everywhere. This naughty sci-fi series is freaky and funny. 

This review of the Netflix animated series Farzar season 1 does not contain spoilers.

Netflix has released its latest adult animals series, Farzar, an outrageous, hilarious, weird, sci-fi animated comedy series. With ten episodes at half an hour each, this series is a fun, easy binge watch. From the creators of Brickleberry and Paradise PD, Roger Black and Waco O’Guin are again showcasing that no joke is too far for them, and they are ready and willing to push boundaries in the name of comedy. I can only imagine how much fun this team of writers had creating this show. 

Adult content animation has had a huge surge in recent years, and clearly isn’t going anywhere as we’re seeing more and more series come to our screens. The comedic jokes that tackle current social issues really resonate with older audiences, but then can also be educational and informative to younger audiences too, making series like this watched by all audiences. Whilst there are many jokes and vulgarities to poke fun at, will it become too similar and stale? Maybe, but this series feels like some fresh yet dirty air, and the sci-fi, 80’s parodies give it an edge that this type of ridiculous content needs. The writer’s reference programs such as Scooby Doo-Where are you?, Star Wars, and Flash Gordon, so keep your eyes out for those.

We follow the story of the egotistical human warrior Renzo, who saved his planet from invaders and married his incredibly older wife to hold the throne and protect his planet. His ultimate plan is to defeat the evil Bazarack. Whilst he is hot, sexy, strong, his son Prince Fichael is more dorky and dumb. Prince Fichael, needing to prove to his father he is worthy of being a real general at the age of thirty, assembles a crew together, his ‘S.H.A.T’ crew and goes outside the walls to bring back Bazaracks head. Of course, this does not go to plan. We spend the series following their antics and insane story-lines trying to battle and defeat one another. 

Now this series has a lot more underneath than just sex jokes and cartoons jerking off on screen (a lot). It does in fact tackle a lot of social issues, such as class warfare, capitalism and colonialism. They represent more than just the in-your-face jokes on the screen, which gives this series a depth that more recent ones have been missing. 

With a wide range of impressive, recognisable voice actors that include the likes of Lande Reddick (The Wire), David Kaye (The Eternals), Jerry Minor (Brickleberry) Grey DeLisle (The Simpsons) and many more, this series is brought to life through their fantastic voice-over acting. Although, some of these characters are very similar to ones we have seen before in other animation series, it doesn’t stop the comedy or chemistry. When it’s well written, it works. However, I don’t think this series will have the longevity as other adult animations like Futurama or Rick and Morty, but it can definitely last for three of four seasons like Brickelberry, and I am excited for the next season. Hey, I could be wrong, it could go on for years and years. 

Overall this series is a laugh. It’s a combination of freaky, zany, rude, crude, and everything in between. With jokes to hit all stitches, I highly recommend this series if you’re a fan of animations, especially Paradise PD, Brickleberry, Futurama, Rick and Morty, and Big Mouth.
