Straight-laced Morris Clay and fun-loving Tyberius Walker are two Han Solo wannabes who fly around the galaxy in the Space Hoopty, a used starship that looks like a winged car and comes with a smart-mouthed computer called Loquatia, who has the hots for Morris. Ty and Morris go on wild adventures while taking abuse from Ty's brother-in-law Vashti and get shown up by gorgeous bounty hunter Amma most of the time. Written by

The problem with parodies is that if the point is missed, then there is nothing to like. This show was full of silly plots and great cameos. It didn't take itself seriously. I mean, George Jefferson opening a Dry Cleaner in space? "Pippin", played by ex "Scotty" James Doohan? This is just silliness, people.
And to the person who said this was a rip-off of Red Dwarf, if I were Grant or Naylor, I would be offended, since this show, other than being sci-fi comedy, has NO similarities to Red Dwarf. Don't forget Quark, the sci-fi comedy BEFORE Red Dwarf if you want to use the "originator" angle.
Still, Homeboys may have been trash, but it was fun.
