Summary

Fun, quirky show with clever comedy throughout. I giggled a lot and recommended you watch it if you’re an adult animation fan. 

We review the Netflix animated series Inside Job season 2, which does not contain spoilers.

Fans rejoice as the mature sci-fi workplace comedy Inside Job from Netflix, which first premiered in 2019, is back for Season 2. When Netflix first ordered Inside Job, it was confirmed that the series would have at least twenty episodes. The first season, also known as part one, consisted of ten episodes, and so far, season two/part two also has ten. Does this mean we won’t get a third season? I hope not. This series is low-key, funny, and enjoyable to watch. 

There has been a huge surge in adult animation over the last couple of years, with online streaming fans going crazy for BoJack Horseman, Big Mouth, Human Resources, F is for Family, and Disenchantment, to name a few. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that fans are loving Inside Job. 

If you’re new to Inside Job, Gravity Falls’ writer, Shion Takeuchi, and creator Alex Hirsch made this series which surrounds the story of a shadow government organization, Cognito Inc, whose role is to manage the world’s conspiracy theories and ensure the world doesn’t implode. It features the voice talents of Lizzy Caplan, Clark Duke, Tisha Campbell, Christian Slater, Andrew Daly, John DiMaggio, Brett Gelman, and Bobby Lee

In Season 2, Reagan Ridley and her dysfunctional team are back to help save the world, but first, Reagan needs to bring down her father and reclaim the title of CEO. With an awkward, antisocial, yet clever female protagonist and crazy, kooky characters like one psychedelic mushroom and reptile shape-shifters, this series offers fun and freaky viewing. Even Keanu Reeves makes an appearance as a “vampire” character. 

The series begins with Reagan returning to work, full of anger and desire for revenge, as she’s not able to accept that her deranged and dictator dad is now head of the company. Reagan now wants to get her father fired, as he was previously dismissed for almost exposing the existence of the deep state. Will this make the Shadow Board take her seriously and reinstate her as CEO? Reagan still thinks she can make a difference — so once she’s got rid of everything and everyone in her way, will she get a happy ending and the promotion she thinks she deserves? You’ll have to watch and see. 

We’re thrown straight into humor that reflects current social issues along with breaking social conducts, with Reagan shouting at kids, “Santa is fake but student debt is real.” This kind of humor is very much aimed at adults, and these little one-liners are what give this show its cheeky quirks.

To help cope with their new leader workers have created an “Anonymous, Anonymous” group for them to go to and help one another get through their working day. For anyone who’s hated their job, this is very relatable, and you’ll find more things like this throughout the series.

Overall this is a fun, easy adult animation series to binge-watch. With plenty of swearing, sexual innuendos, and subtle/not-so-subtle political and societal underlines, there are also hints of more conspiracies and the ensuing chaos around each theory. Personally, I really enjoy this series and I hope there is a 3rd and possibly 4th series in the future.
