Summary: Whether it's lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis, the awkward small talk, moral ambiguity and existential woes of non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own.


"Animals." is undoubtedly what's promised in one of the show's taglines: "a new breed of comedy." Like "7 Days in Hell" and "Ferrell Takes the Field" before it, "Animals." isn't made to be broadly appealing. It's designed for a niche audience with a very specific sense of humor. In a sea of new television offerings, it's hard to dismiss something with as strong and focused a voice as this, even if it may not be your cup of tea. "Animals." may have fit more snugly into the Adult Swim brand of programming, but it shouldn't be slighted because it's on a more prestigious platform. "Animals." feels pretty close to being what it wants to be, but it's already exactly what HBO wants for NOW.
