Sean and Such--Almost Like Watching "Adult Swim"
"We don't have dog grooming...."
"Can you kill my greyhounds instead? I got like four of them...."
"Sean and Such" is another flash sit-com of the type you watch on Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim", and it has equivalent production values. Not to say they're good in themselves, but they can land on Adult Swim without a problem. This episode lacks a plot, but you can identify with the plight that Sean, a pet shop owner, must contend with.
One of the things that struck me was that, while it is fairly contemporary, it is set ten years ago. They chat about Dreamcast and new Mega Man games (one of the exec producers quit Capcom recently).
The voice-overs are well-acted, but obvious that a few voice talents were featured, even across different accents and dialects. The authors seem inspired by "Clerks", or Kevin Smith films in general, which influences the relationship between Sean and Tom. They are virtually analogous to the characters Dante and Randall, in temperament and sensibility. While playing straight against wild is common in comedy, it is no secret what material is getting borrowed from.
"Sean and Such" doesn't quite stand out a whole lot from other episodic flash sit-coms, but it is a nice source of smiles, perhaps potential filler in an Adult Swim time slot.
