It seems like a lot of the stress, tension, psychosis, anger, and despair fueled problems that every superhero deals with could possibly be solved with a little dose of therapy. Therapy that doesn’t involve smashing faces and getting sidekicks killed. So it’s about time we get to see a visit to the world of superhero therapy.
Issues is a new series brought to us by Crackle, and revolves around a world full of real people and animated superheroes. So step into the office of Dr. Ted (played by Josh Cooke) as he works through some superhero Issues:
Looks pretty funny, and features a pretty stellar line-up of voice actors. I’ll let GammaSquad tell you a little more:
The show was created by Josh Cooke and Matt Oakes and features the voice acting of Seth Green, Rob Riggle, Ron Livingston, Eric Stonestreet, Greg Grunberg, and Eddie Kaye Thomas. The voice actors play animated superheroes in a live-action world — à la Who Framed Roger Rabbit? — who go to therapy sessions with Dr. Ted (played by Josh Cooke). They have major issues, hence the on-the-nose title.
The voice actors were allowed to improv some of their lines, and the good ones were kept and animated later. Unfortunately, for now it’s only going to be six episodes of three to four minutes apiece.
So it’s not a whole lot of content to start with, but a nice taste of what could be a really funny series. It’s obvious to see some of the superhero influences in the show, and it might be a hilarious take on some of these characters.
It debuts July 20th exclusively on Crackle.
