Joe Pera Talks With You

No, my name isn't Joe Pera but I wouldn't mind being more like him.

I was going to review a movie but to heck with it, this show has had it's day coming since last year. I can't fully remember how this show came to my attention, I was flipping through YouTube and happened across an episode of the show that was called "Joe Pera Talks You Back To Sleep". Now me, I need noise to sleep and have found myself emerged in the ocean sized culture of ASMR, so I wanted to see what it was like. What I found was the tip of an iceberg of a show that I can easily say objectively, is the best show I have ever seen and is one of the best shows ever made. I'm being real with you. But what is 1000 times harder to do is explain why. It is crucial to have the right mindset for this show, the subject material is different from episode to episode but the basic premise is, choir teacher Joe Pera talks about a myriad of topics from iron, grocery stores, and breakfast. It's one of the most relaxing, stress melting, wholesome, and vastly entertaining pieces of media I have ever witnessed. It's an introspective show with odd touches of humor and endless rewatchability. And most shocking of all it comes from Adult Swim, one of the greatest platforms for televised independent shows with shoestring budgets and bizzare comedic material. You just would not expect such a show from that platform. But man Adult Swim when you get right down to it, has an incredible fanbase that sticks through it and they repay that love with shows like this. But the quality here is pretty good, and the comedy is more of an after thought yet never fails to make me laugh every episode. There's tons of clips and two proper episodes on YouTube so you can gauge it for yourself, but this show could not possibly get better. It's just that good! We're talking 5 stars out of 4, 12/10, I simply cannot love it more.
