Close Enough is an American adult animated sitcom created by J. G. Quintel. Originally intended to air on TBS in 2017, the project faced various delays and setbacks before eventually premiering on HBO Max on July 9, 2020. With the announcement of TBS and TNT's Front Row blocks, the series debuted on the former network on October 25, 2021.[1][2]

The series has received positive reviews, with several critics comparing it favorably to Quintel's previous series, Regular Show.[3][4][5][6]

Premise

A couple in their early thirties, Josh and Emily, and their young daughter, Candice, live in a Los Angeles duplex with their divorced friends, Alex and Bridgette. They get into what seem like normal domestic crises, which tend to escalate in surreal (often even science fiction-esque) ways.

"Quilty Pleasures": While picking up Candice from school, Josh and Emily learn from her teacher, Mr. Campbell, that she must turn in a family tree quilt project. Forcing Alex and Bridgette to babysit Candice, they travel to the fashion district to collect the materials they need for the quilt, only to end up stuck as the district closes. Josh's wallet is stolen, and he and Emily track the thief to an abandoned factory, where they meet a group of street urchins. Employing their help, Josh and Emily successfully create the quilt and spend the night at the factory. In the morning, Josh and Emily realize that the street urchins are actually dwarfish adults who try to force them to stay and act as their parents, although they escape. Arriving at the school, they discover that Candice has already made her own family quilt, and Mr. Campbell passes her.

"The Perfect House": Emily develops a hobby of visiting open houses, bringing her family along with her. After becoming overwhelmed by the mess in the duplex building, she visits another open house by herself, meeting Dave, a stressed-out father, and Mona Arizona, a pre-teen pop star, who are also visiting. They pretend to be a family in order to remain at the open house longer; although Emily soon realizes that they have become trapped in an 80s-style sitcom within the open house. Meanwhile, Josh orders a family bike, and goes looking for Emily when he realizes she has been missing for days. Arriving at the open house, Josh is also trapped in the sitcom, which he and Emily realize can only be escaped by doing something that can't happen on sitcoms. Emily confesses that she likes being able to escape the chaos at home, and peacefully disowns her sitcom family, allowing her and Josh to leave, although Dave and Mona choose to stay. Josh gives Emily a set of tin containers from the open houses to help her, and together with Candice, Alex and Bridgette they ride on the family bike.

"Logan's Run'd": Candice leaves on her first-ever sleepover, allowing Josh and Emily the night for themselves, which they quickly use to perform errands. Bridgette points out that they are acting "old", driving them and Alex to accompany her to the popular night club Logan's. Arriving at the club, Josh, Emily and Alex begin to party but quickly find themselves exhausted, while Bridgette tries to get acquainted with a popular YouTube influencer but is horrified to learn that he is actually a baby. Realizing that anyone in the club over thirty is deemed a VIP (Very Irrelevant Person) and killed via giant fan, Josh, Emily and Alex try to escape. When Josh is nearly discovered, Alex decides to sacrifice himself as a distraction; however, Josh, Emily and Bridgette convince him that there are benefits to growing old and rescue him from the fan. Learning that the barkeeper based his club off of Logan's Run, Alex unveils him as being an old man himself, leaving him at the mercy of the club-goers. Afterwards, the friends go out to eat pancakes, although Alex is still unnerved by having seen a man die.

"Room Parents": At a parent-teacher conference, Mr. Campbell asks for volunteers for class "room parent", to which Josh inadvertently volunteers. Tasked with organizing a fundraiser for constructing a new playground, Josh befriends a single mother named Nikki (voiced by Judy Greer), who offers to assist him. Emily realizes that Nikki is trying to woo Josh, and teams up with Pearle in order to investigate. Emily confronts Josh over her findings, and he insists to have no interest in Nikki, but comes to recognize the advances she is making. Josh visits Nikki with Emily to break off their partnership for the fundraiser, only to realize that her son is a dummy and end up held at gunpoint. Tying the couple up, Nikki reveals herself as a con-artist who poses as a single mother in order to help overworked room parents and steal fundraiser money out from under them, and leaves to take the playground funds. Escaping, Josh and Emily head to the playground fundraiser to stop Nikki, and Josh manages to recover the funds while Nikki seemingly dies by crashing into a novelty fireworks factory. Returning to the fundraiser, Josh is elected room parent for life by Mr. Campbell, much to his dismay.
