Post-"Hello Larry" McLean Stevenson. Enough said.

American adaptations of British comedies invariably lose something in
the cultural translation. So, when the source material was nothing
special to begin with, you've got a real loser on your hands.
My recollection of the plot goes like this: you have three co-ed
astronauts in for a long-term space mission. The catch is that they
agreed to the mission only on the condition that they go unmonitored
for several hours every day. Why NASA couldn't just go find some
astronauts that didn't have so many privacy hangups I couldn't tell
At any rate, given that they're up in space and all and anything could
happen, NASA rather sensibly decides to covertly monitor them anyway,
but then dopey Col. Booker (McLean Stevenson) spills the beans and
outrage ensues. Comedy, alas, does not.
