Not the best of the series.
24 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one is a nice little fantasy that takes place several hundred years in the future in space. I think the writers and crew and cast were really bored and felt the need to get silly. The writing is horrible and way overdone. Its not even funny as a spoof of the show or a spoof of other space shows. The jokes are childish and too obvious, they don't come across as funny. Watching Dave attach the word "Space" to everything was painful. Space dollars. Space couch. Space radio. Space news. Space coffee. It was all too dumb to even be fun and silly. Bringing back the hot chick from the previous episode as a RoboBabe was pointless. Making references to alien sex psychology and lost words like "trees" and "homies" was so beneath the regular writing quality its kinda sad. Watching Lisa act like a space marine was a joke to her real acting abilities. I hope the cast had fun because the viewers were probably annoyed. Aside from the novelty this is an episode which could be avoided and you would never miss it.
