Streaming Finds: Tracking down sci fi and fantasy shows of interest available on the streaming services.
What Is It? This show follows the further adventures of Agents J, K and L along with the other members of the Men in Black organization as they hunt aliens that are loose on the planet and who may pose a threat to the world of humans.
Staring: Ed O’Ross, Gregg Berger, Keith Diamond, Jennifer Lien, Vincent D’Onofrio
The Skinny: This series picks up pretty much right where the first movie left off, though it ignores the fact that Agent K retired at the end of that film. It delivers monster-of-the-week episodes that are very much in the spirit of the movies and it also delves into the backstory of the Men in Black organization as well as some of the agents like K. The animation is also first rate and the stories are regularly quite good with plenty of clever asides thrown in to the dialogue. The worms and Frank the pug were featured regularly in MiB largely for kid-appeal, but they never overtook the series from the primary agents. This series offers plenty for kids and adults to like, and for those who enjoyed the movies this is a great extension to that universe (you can read more about the show at this link).
The first two seasons of the show are available on the Crackle streaming service, though sadly not the third and fourth season. But this still delivers a good sampling of the show and plenty of fun for those who want more adventures from the Men in Black. Crackle is a free, ad-supported streaming service that was previously owned by Sony, but that has been sold to Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment and will re-brand as Crackle Plus. The change in ownership may impact what is available for streaming on that service, so if you want to check out Men in Black The Animated Series you may want to do it soon in case it gets pulled from the lineup.
