Another British gem.
3 September 2004 | by (Watford) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed The Cruise of the Gods.

This was a great example contemporary British humour. It highlights the many aspects of fanaticism amongst followers of SciFi genres and tacky TV dramas.

I liked the fanatic who had actually written his own episodes of Children of castor. (I am sure that there are Trekkies out there that have done likewise with Star Trek.)

Whatever became of the stratobow? . I want one!.

Me and my mate Kris have watched this several times now and still find it fantastic....

this is the future we deserve.
