A Lot or a Little?

The show revolves around the concept that the Deep State is real, and that the government is comprised of aliens, lizard people, robotics, and other strange things. The ethics of what Cognito, Inc. does is occasionally raised, but quickly dismissed.
Positive Role Models
Reagan Ridley is brilliant, terse, and wants to take over the world with robots and other technology. Brett is clueless but means well.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Inside Job is an animated comedy about a young genius working for the "Deep State." There's a lot of cursing, including "s--t" and "f--k," some sex jokes, and lots of fantasy violence that is more silly than frightening. Drinking and drug use are also visible. Recognizable pop culture references to people like Oprah and movies like Face/Off are featured throughout each episode.
Is It Any Good?
This irreverent series pokes fun at some of the many myths surrounding American democracy and the "Deep State." The slightly megalomaniacal Reagan Ridley is engaging, her father colorful, and Brett obnoxious, but amusing. But the rest of the ensemble cast is less developed, which feels like a missed opportunity. Meanwhile, the running gags are plenty, but they lack nuance, and the show is so fast-paced that some of the punchlines never quite land. Nonetheless, viewers who like this sort of entertainment will find Inside Job worth checking out.
