Weird City, a YouTube original released earlier this year, is a refreshingly light-hearted and surprisingly solid sci-fi/comedy anthology series. Its subject matter is pretty much in the same vein as Black Mirror, except this vein pumps cleverly humorous social commentary instead of dramatic and sobering realism. Created by Charlie Sanders and Jordan Peele, Weird City, weirdly enough, checked a lot more of my boxes than I imagined it would. Sure, I may have raved about one or two of YouTube’s originals in the past (shout out to Cobra Kai and Impulse), not all of whom were lucky enough to evade cancellation (R.I.P. Champaign Ill and Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television), but this show is something strangely special.
