When I looked at my notes after finishing the first season of The Second Best Hospital in The Galaxy, I found that I mostly scribbled down all the jokes I liked in the series. It has been a long time since I watched a show filled with so many amusing delights that I furiously noted them in my book, as I didn't want them to leave my memory. There is a line about "running shorts," a machine whose error is fixed by a strike with the fist, and - wait for it - a looping chip (what an idea!). The Second Best Hospital in The Galaxy uses the freedom that comes with animation (Andrés 'Tuto' Castillo, Juan Pablo Boraso, Javi Javier Martínez, and Francisco Veyro are responsible for the visual effects, while Callum Sparks and Gregery Miller serve the animation department) to give power to the imagination provided by a talented group of writers who deserve to be recognized. They are Cirocco Dunlap, Anne Lane, Joanna Bradley, Kirsten King, Shauna McGarry, and Asha Michelle Wilson.


At times, The Second Best Hospital in The Galaxy, like Hazbin Hotel, threatened to become exhausting. The humor is fast and furious; thus, it becomes overwhelming. But unlike Hazbin Hotel, this series quickly wins you with its awesome visual creativity. Some images get burned in your mind. Nothing about The Second Best Hospital in The Galaxy can be labeled bland or ineffective. Every image is alive and brimming with feelings, from something as small as a gill rash to a long cheesy lovemaking. Those feelings range from awkward to erotic. The show makes you laugh; it also makes you cringe. Every emotion is layered with humor. The show expresses itself unabashedly.


Every episode deals with a mini problem (sex bomb, sexually transmitted disease, etc.), and the whole show builds towards a world-ending threat brought on by a parasite that eradicates anxiety. But let's not get into plot summaries. The real pleasure lies in the little details that have their own comic energy. Notice how a doctor cuts her hands (that regrow immediately) after surgery. A character in a cave switches on the lights, and the wires electrocute a fish. Someone shares his saliva with somebody (gross), and there are snacks that are always crying, and some of them play dumb charades inside a packet before being eaten alive. Oh yes, how can I forget those delightful commercials that also appear mid-surgery?


The Second Best Hospital in The Galaxy has the brain of a naughty, weird kid. Its "anything goes" attitude is giddily wacky. It gives rise to a wide range of embarrassing feelings you never knew existed in your body. At the same time, it also leaves you happy. The viewer should embrace every emotion the series generates from within them. It's not every day you get to watch something this bizarre and entertaining.


Final Score- [9/10]
