Boldly going - further into Sci-fi Comedy
20 November 2009 | by YnaliSee all my reviews

Why would you watch Starhyke when there are series like Hyperdrive out there? Let me tell you why… For a start, it's more original than Hyperdrive, its fresher, has better effects and it's got a superb ensemble cast from the sci-fi world.

Starhyke is a great series that just goes from strength to strength as each episode rockets through the universe of sci-fi comedy. I was lucky enough to attend a screening of all six episodes, one after the other and I dare anyone not to stop smiling at the hilarity and just plain awkwardness at some of the situations the crew find themselves in. Since Red Dwarf, no one has attempted to meld the world of sci-fi with the awkwardness of some of the Monty Python sketches with such skill, but Starhyke hits all the spots.

Starhyke does take from all the clichés of the current and past sci-fi's for instance, you will see a homage to Suanne Braun's character - Hathor from Stargate among other hilarious nods to the sci-fi genre. The cast as I mentioned earlier, are stellar, and even the new faces in the cast do a fantastic job.

As with all series, you'll find that it's a slightly slow start, but once you get into the story and you get past the first couple of episodes, you'll be laughing out loud.

If you're a sci-fi fan and loved Red Dwarf, this is for you.
