Watch an Episode of IFC's 'Freaks and Geeks'-esque Animated Series 'Out There' Online for Free

"Out There," the new series starting on IFC on Friday, February 22nd, is the creation of former "South Park" animation director Ryan Quincy. Aside from also being animated, it has little in common with the Trey Parker and Matt Stone series -- "Out There" is more in the vein of "Freaks and Geeks," a coming of age tale about a socially awkward trio of friends growing up in a small town who happen to be furry monster type things.

The tonal similarity to the Paul Feig show is helped along by the presence of Linda Cardinelli voicing Sharla, the crush of protagonist Chad (Quincy). "Portlandia" co-creator Fred Armisen, Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace"), Pamela Adlon ("Louie"), John DiMaggio ("Futurama"), Kate Micucci ("Raising Hope") and Justin Roiland ("Fish Hooks") round out the cast. IFC's made a full episode -- "A Chris By Any Other Name" -- available online ahead of the series premiere. Check it out below:

    I thought this was a really, really strong pilot episode. The dialogue is a little "on the nose" at times, but the characters were fully formed by the end of the episode and everything ended up flowing more smoothly. I'm glad I stuck with it because two words near the end of the episode made me laugh so much that it endeared me to everything that came before it.
