Storyline

Tarantula is an animated half hour comedy written by Carson Mell (Silicon Valley, Eastbound and Down) and executive produced by Danny McBride and Rough House Pictures. Set at the Tierra Chula Resident Hotel aka the Tarantula, it centers on Echo Johnson, a respected but uncertified tattoo artist, who delivers absurd yet introspective monologues. Echo's poetic ramblings tell tales of misadventures with the other residents including Lucas the sci-fi writer and bread truck driver, Booty the sensitive lead singer, and Bess, a lady whose toughness was forged in the local honky-tonks, as they partake in party crashing, dumpster diving, and other socially dubious acts of mischief.

If Thomas Pynchon made a TV series
26 October 2019 | by nikitalinivenkoSee all my reviews

This was a show that got cancelled too soon; a bit of stoner comedy that I really dug. The whole show has this heavy Thomas Pynchon vibe, from the Doc Sportello-like protagonist to the town that would nestle comfortably between Gordita Beach and Vineland in Pynchon's fictional California geography. Hell, the whole thing feels as if someone loosely adapted 'Vineland' into a cartoon series. It's mellow, it's meditative, each episode is like a Zen koan (I especially liked "Mushroom Valley", "Frog Flog", and "Shabzinzo"). If you're a fan of the Big Lebowski or Inherent Vice, and are looking for something in that vein, this is, at least for the moment, the best you're gonna get.
