Storyline

The show was about the domestic life of an eccentric family group set in the year 2040 - although in the setting, the characters are not in fact biologically related, but assigned to shared living quarters by the bureaucracy. Parts of the setting were decidedly dystopic; in the first episode, Luna is threatened with execution for having lost her citizen's identity card. A distinctive feature of the show was the language of "techno-talk", used by all of the characters, and described as an alternate version of English that had emerged to make it easier for computers to understand human speech. Techno-talk was characterised by the formation of new words from stems that already existed in regular spoken English. Written by holmefieldmill

clockwork orange style dystopia for kids!
26 April 2008 | by rapsterteeSee all my reviews

Along with 'Metal Mickey', Mickey Dolenz from the Monkees had a hand in Luna.

It was a sort of futuristic sitcom set in a totalitarian society, with an almost unintelligible vocabulary of future-jargon. Everyone is cloned (or something) and they have numbers instead of names. Luna was named after the Moon where she was (born?) and she was adopted by a family who all had nicknames to replace their numbers. A young Patsy Kensit played Luna in the first series at least and was very good as i recall. Took quite a lot to get used to the futurespeak.

Would be interesting to see nowadays. Weird stuff....
