Friday TV: Farewell to ‘Quantico’

“Animals” (HBO, 11:30 p.m.) has always been a strange show, focusing on the human quirks of urban critters (who, so as to aid the more tedious side of animation, don’t move their mouths when they talk). For season three, humans have been eliminated from the equation altogether, as some sort of apocalypse has wiped them out, causing new hierarchies on the ground. But humans do appear — in the series’ first live action shots — as scientific observers.

It’s followed by the new “Random Acts of Flyness” (HBO, midnight), a new series from Terence Nash that throws all kind of approaches — animation, documentary, music performances, skits — together to see what happens.
