Storyline

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.

So funny, I laughed myself sick
9 August 2005 | by (Michigan, United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this show was one of the funniest I've ever seen. It was a great lampoon of black culture and of Star Trek. Hell, it even had James Doohan in it playing the roll of a Scottish engineer. Now where did they get that idea from? These two black guys fly around in the space hooptie, which is controlled by this mouthy computer named Loquasia. She's always popping out some sexual innuendo or something. And the stuff these guys ran into was beyond great. It's been too long since I've seen any episodes, but some of the adventures were just so hilarious.

It's too bad this show was only on for one season because I thought it was brilliant. Maybe it'll come on DVD and then I can get it.
