Storyline

Aliens in human form land on Earth to carry out a secret mission, and when the Supervisor is decapitated, the two bumbling Cadets have no idea what the mission entails. With a mixture of their of own language, and mannerisms taken from old 50s movies, they try and get through the crazy world we live in, without trying to get caught by the various shady organisations after them.

Good Science Fiction FUN
29 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have FINALLY managed to get hold of this gem (but don't you dare make me tell you how) after not seeing it since it's first screening here on Sky One way back in 2000. I am pretty confident that this has never been repeated and has never been released on video or DVD.

It is a comedy sci-fi story about highly advanced (if apparently a little slow witted) vegetable based extra-terrestrial agents on a secret mission to Earth, written by Rob Grant (one half of Red Dwarf) Although it's British, it seems to be set in some kind of parallel 1950's USA. The actors all have English accents (apart from Docherty) the sets look vintage American and the vehicles are all Russian. Sounds crazy? It is also quite interesting because I think this is the only series other than Blake's 7 that Paul Darrow and Gareth Thomas have starred in. Paul is fantastically sinister as usual!

I would have difficulty comparing this to just about anything else out there, but it's basically a fun story with some fun characters and some good special effects for a TV show made 10 years ago. It has become a 'cult' classic mainly because it has not been on here for nearly 10 years and people have to search hard to find it, but also because of it's association to Red Dwarf. I would recommend anyone to check it out if you can - but to all those who give this bad reviews - it's a fantasy, so don't take it too seriously!
