Not bad for mindless comedy
30 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is the Dumb and Dumber and dumber and dumber... of sci-fi space comedies.

The basic premise is that while the cream of he crop of humanity is out exploring the galaxy, the misfits, bums, and other losers of mankind just wander around for no apparent reason. These are their misadventures.

I've seen a couple of the episodes and they contain fairly solid mindless comedy. Some of the other reviewers compared it to "Tripping the Rift." I think I'd add some 3 Stooges, "Son of the Beach", "Office Space", "Space Balls", and the 70's series "Quark." If you are looking for high-brow comedy, look elsewhere. However, if you just want 30 minutes of silly humor from a show that obviously doesn't take itself the least bit seriously, this is worth checking out.
