An Amazing trip into TV's Subconscious.
10 September 2017 | by duckman-42689See all my reviews

Off the air is an incredibly hard show to explain. Through various internet clips and animations, Off the air guides us on a surreal and sometimes even terrifying journey through various loose themes, such as Liquid, Shapes, and Worship. Each episode contains anywhere from 7 to 15 shorts, each one usually memorable and unique, while rarely ever lasting too long to get boring. There are a couple duds in the series where the clips last too long and don't go anywhere (notably "Holes"), but overall this show is one of the most strange and beautiful TV shows you will ever see.
