Politician Peter Laurence's private life is falling apart. Shamelessly untroubled by guilt or remorse, he seeks to further his own agenda whilst others plot to bring him down. Can he out-run his own secrets to win the ultimate prize?
Welcome to the era of the comedy space opera. First, Galaxy Quest. Then, The Orville. Now, Avenue 5. It takes all the ingredients proven effective by The Orville, and it sends them across the solar system, packed with everything that makes comedy: bickering couples, lousy engineering, annoying customer support, idiotic management and a professional crew who wishes a black hole would just spawn out of nowhere and swallow them all. If you liked The Love Boat back in the day, this is that brought over to the 21st century..... or whatever century the characters are in..... Hugh Laurie is always a treat when it comes to playing the lead character being annoyed by the cast, and boy, he is ANNOYED. If you want a glimpse of how society would be like in the future, for better or worse, watch both Orville and Avenue 5. You'll find yourself nodding at every joke.
