Storyline

Frightened by the problems in the world, Rick Greene decides to escape Earth by attaching a rocket to his car and launches into space. The only thing that saves his life in this lame-brain scheme is that he promptly rams into a space station and is able to settle into the complex. Stuck there, Commander Rick decides to devote his time to exploring the only mediums that seem to deal with the real issues of the day, Science Fiction/Fantasy literature and comic books. In this show, Rick interviews a wide variety of writers and comic book talents about their work and how it relates to particular artistic, political and philosophic themes.

12 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Between 1990 and 1993 TVO had the two best shows about literature ever produced, anywhere. Imprint was the "serious" lit show which (at its best) enjoyed the strong interview skills of Daniel Richler and Guy Lawson. But Prisoners of Gravity was the real groundbreaker. For the first time, it allowed for serious examination of sci-fi/fantasy as socially relevant literature. It was layered and highly intelligent, yes -- but also huge fun. It taught me huge amounts about all kinds of literature and never ceased to surprise. TVO should invest in the lawyering required to get this thing into syndication on cable.... Its format and themes would have aged beautifully and I know it would be seriously successful if re-released.
