PremiseEdit

Inside Job is a workplace comedy set in a world where many conspiracy theories are real. It is centered on an American shadow government organization Cognito, Inc., which attempts to control the world and keep the conspiracies secret.[5][6] The series follows a team led by a tech genius and her new partner as they work in the organization alongside reptilian shapeshifters, a human–dolphin hybrid, and a sapient mushroom from hollow Earth.[7][3][8]

CastEdit

MainEdit

  • Lizzy Caplan[9] as Reagan Ridley; a brilliant yet socially awkward biracial Japanese-American robotics engineer who works at Cognito Inc. and believes that society itself can be improved, managing her irresponsible coworkers while seeking out a coveted promotion along the way. Takeuchi described Reagan as a leader who "wants to make the world a better place."[10]
  • Christian Slater[9] as Randall "Rand" Ridley; Reagan's father, and Tamiko's ex-husband. The paranoid former CEO and co-founder of Cognito Inc who was fired after nearly exposing the Deep State and trying to blow up the sun as his "solution" to cure skin cancer. He lives with his daughter Reagan, drinking copious amounts of alcohol and plotting revenge against his former employers while finding time to engage in flame wars with Richard Dawkins. He is reinstated as Cognito CEO by the Shadow Board at the end of season 1 as he holds the most shares in the company.
  • Clark Duke[9] as Brett Hand; a yes-man from Washington, D.C. who has a front as a fratboy but is actually a sensitive and caring person who wants his peers to follow in his footsteps and strives to bring out the best in his friends and colleagues.
  • Tisha Campbell[9] as Gigi; a public relations officer, she is the fast-talking Head of Media Manipulation and Subliminal Messages at Cognito who is also the queen of office gossip. She's also a big flirt who goes after Brett and is constantly remarking on her looks.
  • Andy Daly[9] as J.R. Scheimpough; the current CEO of Cognito, a crafty conversationalist who can talk his way out of potentially compromising predicaments. He is sent to "Shadow Prison X" via tube at the end of season 1.
  • Chris Diamantopoulos[11] as ROBOTUS, the robotic replacement of the President of the United States. Reagan keeps him locked up in Cognito's basement, bribing him with Friends episodes so that he'll help her with various schemes. He evolves into the ultimate AI with the goal of destroying humanity.
  • John DiMaggio[9] as Glenn Dolphman; a human-dolphin hybrid supersoldier who oversees Cognito's weapons and arsenal.
  • Bobby Lee[9] as Dr. Andre Lee; a free-spirited yet anxious Korean-American biochemist who experiments with a range of unusual narcotics, and is also addicted to some of the very same drugs he creates.
  • Brett Gelman[9] as Magic Myc; a psychic mushroom-like organism from a hive mind deep inside Hollow Earth with a dry, sarcastic demeanor and the ability to read peoples' minds. The show's opening sequence implies that his species inadvertently brought about the evolution of humanity when their spores were consumed by ancient apes. Myc also provides pure bio sorbitrate, a chemical the company uses for their memory eraser guns, which they have to literally milk him for.

With Brett gone, Reagan gives the speech, but her invention malfunctions and rips the arms off of a reptoid. Brett saves Reagan from the party, but she is arrested by the reptoid police. Reagan is put on trial at the Reptoid Supreme Court. Rand arrives with a rebuilt Bear-O and takes the stand. Reagan realizes she can't hug anyone because of the trauma inflicted upon her by Bear-O, and argues that Rand's parental failings are to blame for her social anxiety.

Brett simulates a family dinner in the holo-simulator before being interrupted by Reagan. J.R. gives the team the mission of traveling to the town "Still Valley", Wyoming which is stuck in the 1980s, where they sell dangerous recalled products from that era. The team's job is to dose the town with Nostalgia Max, a memory-altering chemical causing the town's populous to literally be stuck in the past. Brett convinces the gang to travel without their electronics, an idea Reagan agrees with as technology could blow their cover. While flying over the town, Myc is sucked out of the plane, forcing the team to search for him without their gadgets. Myc, having hit his head and suffering from amnesia, is picked up by a group of kids, while the rest of the team, at Brett's behest, take up fake identities to blend in. Reagan, who was never exposed to 80s pop-culture, dismisses Brett's nostalgia. Wanting him and the team to stay in the 1980s, Brett accidentally exposes himself to Nostalgia Max and becomes violent and super-powered. Reagan watches 1980s films at a Blockbuster, discovering that the family simulation Brett was using wasn't his family but one from a sitcom, as his own family neglected him in his youth. She battles Brett and is able to convince him that he doesn't need a TV family as they are his "business family forever", bringing him back to his senses. Brett and Reagan watch The Goonies together, then lament how problematic it is afterward.

When her parents begin bickering again, Reagan decides to ditch the situation entirely, and is taken hostage by the flat earther leader Harold. Her parents end up joining her, and Reagan takes Harold to the portal to hollow earth, secretly giving her location to her friends.

Reagan directs Rafe on the mission, denying all attraction to Rafe while noting a weird vibe between him and Skullfinger. Reagan tries to break up with Rafe but fails, so she asks for help from her co-workers, who all note they used Ghost Protocol to fake their deaths and escape from their social problems.

Bear-O reveals that in monitoring Reagan, he saw that her work was damaging her emotional state, and stole the file to destroy Cognito in a bid to make her happy. When the file is accidentally destroyed, Bear-O decides to target the people who are "hurting" Reagan, starting with her friends. She finds that a password is required to override Bear-O. Unable to remember it, she runs with Rand and Brett, while the others flee from Bear-O. Reagan goes into her mind with Rand to find the password. They go through her memories trying to locate the password. While searching, Reagan discovers glitches in her memories involving a male kid she met during her childhood. The rest of the team stumbles into Reagan's lab and finds a tribute she made to the team, and they leave to save Reagan after a stirring message from NSYNC. Brett enters Reagan's mind by accident and brings her younger self to a high school dance, where he discovers the password. Bear-O changes his target to Rand, and Reagan learns that her dad erased memories of her childhood friend Orrin so he wouldn't hold her back academically, as part of an insurance plot to get back into Cognito. The team finds Alpha-Beta and convince him to fight Bear-O. The two bots clash, stalling Bear-O long enough for Brett to tell Reagan the password: Orrin. She deactivates Bear-O and confronts Rand for tampering with her mind, kicking him out of both her home and Cognito. The following day she is contacted by the Shadow Board, who inform her that due to the chaos that happened under her watch, she will not be serving as head of Cognito. Since J.R. is being sent to Shadow Prison X for various crimes against the Shadow Board, leadership is going to the majority shareholder, Rand.

Production and releaseEdit

In April 2019, Netflix ordered 20 episodes of the series.[3][20]

Billed as the first adult animated series produced in-house by Netflix Animation,[21][3] it was announced in June 2021 that the regular characters in the series would be voiced by Andrew Daly, Bobby Lee, John DiMaggio, Tisha Campbell and Brett Gelman.[9] It is the first series produced as part of a deal Takeuchi made in 2018 with Netflix to "develop new series and other projects exclusively for Netflix."[22][23][8] A sneak peak of the series was shown at the Studio Focus Panel for Netflix at the Annecy International Animation Festival in June 2021.[9][6][24] The series is the first series created by Shion Takeuchi, part of her deal with Netflix,[21] with Hirsch saying he was inspired by 1990s shows like The X-Files.[7] Hirsch and Takeuchi were also inspired by pages of Weekly World News.[20]

In an interview with Petrana Radulovic of Polygon, Takeuchi said the idea for the show came from her days in college, said there isn't "anything too weird for the show" as long as it develops the characters, saying that there are subject matters which are a "little too adult for all-ages" that people her age deal with, saying it "feels good to be able to talk about" them in the show. She said that doing an adult animation is intimidating.[10]

The series premiered on Netflix on October 22, 2021.[25][26] Between October 24 to October 31 the series was watched for 21,240,000 hours on Netflix globally.[27]

ReceptionEdit

The series received generally positive reviews from critics. Charles Bramesco of The Guardian described the series as hewing close to "the surrealism-of-the-week format"[28] while Nick Schager of The Daily Beast described it as a workplace comedy which "jovially mocks our brain-fried reality" with numerous "sharp jabs at corporate power/gender dynamics" while highlighting absurdity of conspiracy theories and argued that the show shared some similarities with Futurama.[29] Daniel Feinberg of The Hollywood Reporter was more critical, saying that conspiracy theories are played for laughs for "fitful results" and claimed that the show reduced Reagan's problems to issues with her father, but praised Brett for having a "believable" character arc and having a "lot of energy."[30] Similar to Feinberg, Kevin Johnson of The A.V. Club criticized the show for limiting on how far things are taken, influenced by shows like American Dad!, The Venture Bros., Archer, and Akira, but praised the premises and jokes in the series funny, and the "talented creative team."[12] Chris Vognar of Datebook was more positive, saying that the series is "smart and fast on its feet," and noted it remains in the real world with "office politics, sexism, classism, jingoism, nostalgia" and more, while getting viewers to care about Reagan.[31] Burkely Hermann of The Geekiary took a different view, pointing out that "weirdness and mature subject matters" are central to the show, comparing the show to series like Mr. Robot, Futurama, Disenchantment, and described Reagan, as a character with social anxiety, as not unique, pointing to characters in Cleopatra in Space, The Owl House, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, and Steven Universe, along with noting it doesn't "fall into the usual animated sitcom model" and pointing to "queer vibes" in the series.[32] Aaron Pruner of Inverse noted similar themes, saying that the series is, at its core, a story about dysfunctional families at work and at home.[14] Tracy Brown of LA Times said the series allows "audiences to laugh at conspiracy theories again" even as they provide a "backdrop to explore the characters and how they navigate the world."[33]

The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 77% approval rating with an average rating of 7.10/10, based on 13 critic reviews.[34]
