Storyline

In the future, many courageous souls journey to the far reaches of the galaxy, seeking knowledge, adventure, and the thrill of exploration. They are integral to the survival of the human race and truly have 'the right stuff.' The rest are the Outer Space Astronauts. The slovenly Captain Ripley commands the "space-ially" challenged crew of the O.S.S. Oklahoma as they go about their daily routine of... working in space. Written by Anonymous

A smart space satire
29 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've read some of the reviews here complaining about this show, and it just goes to show that some people really don't have much imagination.

This show is not your run of the mill cartoon (like we don't have enough of those already). The animation is intentionally weird, but so what? Not everything has to look like it came from Disney - and the use of live action heads allows the characters to have human expression while hitting a low production cost point.

The writing on this show is what I enjoy. It is sort of a cross between Star Trek and Green Acres. Commander Dick Amos is a space age equivalent of Hooterville's Oliver Douglas. He's the only reasonably sane person in an environment filled with odd-balls, incompetents, and just plain morons.

Like Oliver Douglas, Commander Amos continually struggles to control the anarchy around him when he'd probably be better off just to sit back and let it happen. Things in this show tend to take care of themselves in odd and unexpected ways.

This show isn't for everyone, and you're either going to get it or not. If you don't, just move on and watch a rerun of Three's Company or something similarly non-challenging. If you have a more adventurous sense of humor, put on your "Diplomatic Hat" and enjoy it.
