The Best Animated TV Series of 2022
IGN’s Inside Job Season One review gave it 7/10 and said: “Inside Job offers likable characters and a world full of creatures and secret societies. Its character-focused story gets a little carried away with constant pop-culture references, though, and an indecisive approach to conspiracies.”
