Storyline

Tripping the Rift is a CGI science fiction comedy television series. The universe is modeled largely after the Star Trek universe, with references to 'warp drive' and 'transporter' beam technology, occasional time travel, the Federation and the Vulcans. The series also includes elements borrowed from other sources such as Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Battlestar Galactica. The general setting is that known space is politically divided between two superpowers: the Confederation (led by Humans, and a parody of the Federation from Star Trek) and the Dark Clown Empire (a parody of the Galactic Empire from Star Wars). The Dark Clown Empire is a totalitarian, tyrannical police state, led by the evil Darph Bobo. In contrast, the Confederation is technically a democratic and free society, but in practice, is dominated by mega-corporations and bloated bureaucracies. Ultimately, both superpowers end up exploiting and restricting their inhabitants, albeit in different ways. For example, ... Written by Anonymous

Crazy Credits

The opening credits feature items that resemble some of Sci-Fi's biggest legends: Whip's radio-controlled ship is the original Starship Enterprise from Star Trek (1966); Gus uses a vacuum that resembles R2-D2 from Star Wars (1977); the back of T'nuk's chair resembles the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).

Tripping...
6 April 2004 | by (US of A) – See all my reviews

Alright, I must admit, this show is funny. I was indeed a little out of the game when it debuted, but when I watched it, gave it a chance, it was one of the funniest shows I'd seen since SOUTH PARK. Gina Gershon is outstanding, and to hear her voice in a sordid little campfest, is pretty laughable. Almost good enough to say the least, is what I feel. This show contains some very effective jokes, and cracks about recent pop culture items such as THE EXORCIST and THE DEVIL AND DANIEL WEBSTER. Other items are well represented as well. The cast give an all out performance every episode, and as much as it seems cheap, the actors are obviously having a good time, so I guess we all should. 8/10-for gags
