User Reviews

 
This is how reality TV works.

If you've ever watched 'I'm a Celebrity' or 'Race Across the World' or 'Big Brother' you'll find that reality TV looks for idiots for the audience to relate to (or possibly laugh at) and 'Deep Space Homer' is a great commentary on that. It also has great gag after great gag.
