Lloyd in Space was AWESOME
When I first saw the show, it was "out of this world", lol. An alien facing the life of teenhood. I miss that show so much, I hope Disney Channel add it on the "Throwback Thursday" list. There are a lot of great moments on that show: laughter, drama and the characters. I still wish it was back.
Best Show EVER!!!!!!
How could ANYONE hate this show? Seriously! It's the coolest show EVER!! Here's why:
A wicked space station? A whole town inside? Hover cars? First clue of awesomeness!
We first have Lloyd, a typical 13- year old alien boy. He's not my favourite, but he's ok. Yes, he sometimes takes advantage of people, and he has terrible taste in women, and he can be shallow, but he's a good guy. He's mostly nice, and pretty loyal to his AWSOME friends, and usually learns how he screwed up.
Eddie Horton is the AWSOME best friend of Lloyd. He's sarcastic, witty, charming and funny! He can sometimes be a real jerk, though. He causes trouble at any chance he can, and loves to pull pranks. But, he has a soft side, too. He was the first to befriend little Lloyd on the first day of school, after Lloyd tripped and fell on Britney's artwork. Eddie also taught Lloyd not to judge others when Lloyd had a blind date with a girl with two heads! He can be really sweet at some rare times, such as when he spent time with his cop dad after the two caught a criminal. That's why Eddie is, and always will be, my favourite.
Then there's Douglas, the brain. Don't really like him. He's not fun to be around. All he dose is talk about atoms and crap.
Kurt, the big dumb blob. He's sweet and loveable, but annoying too.
Lloyd's stupid bratty sister Francine sucks. Others can complain about her on other reviews.
Nora, Lloyd's mom. Also commander of the ship. Kind but unfair.
Boomer, the pot smokin mechanic. He's cool, and he's also a prince!
Britney. The stupid spoilt brat. Hate her soooooooo much! So dose Eddie, thank goodness!
And there are others, too. I'm just sick of typing. Anyways, love the show. Thank God for YouTube. If you hate this AWSOME show, back off!!!!moreless
Great show for kids... watchable as an adult
I love this show. And I didn't even discover it until I was already an adult, when it was in reruns. Of course it helps that I like any sort of show that has a space theme to some extent, but really this was well written for the most part and I found all of the characters interesting, and most were lovable. Yes, Francine was annoying, but she was SUPPOSED to be annoying ... she was the little sister. Remember, the stories are being told from the point of view of a preteen young boy... a younger little sister is about guaranteed to be perceived as a pest. Francine, with her powers, is an exaggeration and representation of every little sister who's better at something than her big brother and who wants to be included in his activities... who both competes with, and secretly adulates her older brother. In several episodes she redeems herself by saving Lloyd and his friends. Those episodes were some of my favorites. All the lessons learned, even though he's a young alien boy in an alien environment, are pertinent life lessons for anyone, even adults, if they're willing to put themselves in the frame of mind of their younger selves. I also liked that his mom was a respectable, well employed strong woman and single mom. I always assumed his dad had died and she was widowed but I don't recall that they ever went into it in any detail on that. But in general the whole show had lots to be admired and I really wish there were more episodes to be seen...moreless
You know, maybe if Disney didn't cancel it early, we could've gotten more.
Some people say that this show felt "empty" to them, but I loved this show. Created by Paul Germain and Joe Ansolabehere, who created another Disney show, Recess, this show focused on 13-year-old alien boy, Lloyd, and his life dealing with friends, family, and school. It was a little more sitcom-esque (and slightly more action-y) than Recess, and was more like the Futurama to Recess' Simpsons.
The characters are, despite their jerk-like moments sometimes, very enjoyable. The only character who really annoyed me was Francine. Lloyd was, and always will be, my favorite. He could come off as a jerk sometimes, but he was actually really sweet when they didn't focus on that "jerk" side (depended on the writer).
The plots were like a sitcom IN SPACE!, and they were pretty well-written. My favorite episode was "Lloyd's Lost Weekend".
There are some flaws though. One of the writers has a habit of focusing too much on the "jerk' sides of the characters. Also, the show probably would've gotten better if, you know, Disney didn't cancel it thanks to the whole OSM/ABC Kids switch!
And aside from personality types, a lot of characters share the same voices as the Recess characters. For example, Lloyd is Gus, Eddie is Gelman, Douglas is Rodney and Lance the Pants, Lloyd's mom is Miss Finster, Miss Bolt is Miss Lemon, Brittney is Ashley A., Megan is Ashley Q., Douglas' mom is Miss Grotke, and T.J., Gretchen, and a few others show up to do background characters.
To me, I think this show was the last good OSM show, as the next show to premiere on the block was the abomination known as...Teamo Supremo. But aside from that, LIS was a pretty memorable show. Not as memorable as Recess, but a great show.moreless
It could've been so much better.
I have to say that I'm disappointed that Paul and Joe, the same creators behind Recess, made this show. I really do like the idea of the show and I know what they were trying to do, but this show feels empty like the vacuum of space. Lloyd in Space centers around a 13 year old green alien named Lloyd Nebulon and his friends. They are Douglass, the brains of the group and literally a brain. Kurt is a giant purple alien who's stupid, but has a good heart. Then there's Eddie, the human boy who acts rather smug. The four friends have adventures together and must overcome some type of problem before learning something at the end. Admittedly, this show has a good idea implemented and there is a lot of potential shown here. Unfortunately, like The Proud Family, Lloyd in Space suffers from almost every character being unlikable jerks. The title character, Lloyd, comes off as a bit arrogant, moronic, and he seems to have his mind in the gutter a lot (if you know what I mean). He doesn't really come off as a hero and is kind of selfish. Eddie is no better than Lloyd at all and seems to be the same as him. the only difference is that Eddie seems to be dumber and seems to have a very dirty mind. Douglass was a great character and I got some laughs out of him. I personally liked how resourceful he was in handling situations. Kurt is the best character on the show by far. He was lovable, kind, gentle, and seemed to get the most laughs out of me. I think the show should've been about him instead of Lloyd. Lloyd's family is no better at all. The mom treats Lloyd poorly 90% of the time and seems to show little love or care for him. She also spoils the little sister, Francine, a lot and always seems to take her side. Francine is the worst character on the show. She's very bratty, a complete jerk, always humiliates Lloyd, and is not the least bit likable. She had this power of telekinesis, but she always used it to her own gains and hurt Lloyd. This is the type of sister who needs a very long time out and should have her powers removed from her for good. The other characters aren't really worth mentioning aside from the fact that they have almost have the same personalities as some of the characters from Recess, like the teacher being Miss Finster. The story ideas are pretty good, but some of them feel rehashed like the love potion one. Some of them are creative though like the genderless alien. The humor is pretty decent in this show, but most of it comes from Kurt and Douglass or when they're together. I didn't really find anything funny in this show and the stuff I did find funny was far and few in between. The artwork is really good here like all Paul and Joe shows. The characters have good designs to them, well I really think Lloyd could've looked better, and the set designs are creative and there's plenty of eye candy. The animation in general is also really good and flows smoothly. Now as for the morals this show provides, to be fair, they do a pretty good job of sending the message without shoving it down our throats. Lloyd in Space is not a God awful cartoon, but I feel like there could've been so much more to this. It's a shame too since the show had a lot of potential, but it was not that well executed. If maybe the show focused on Douglass and Kurt, removed Lloyd, his family, and Eddie, this could've been really good. Some of the jokes aren't funny and almost every character is rather annoying, moronic, or come off as jerks. There's a good idea buried here, but this show is probably better off left in the vacuum of space and left forgotten.moreless
Great show highly under appreciated
I would guess people can compare this show to Futurama for kids or a kid friendlier Invader Zim. I liked this show the most out of the Toon Disney line up along with the Weekenders. Lloyd in Space to me is creative. All of the characters are different in this one. Some have only one eye ball. There is a character that resembles a brain. Other aliens have several limbs. Lloyd has no hair and is green with big pointy ears. Courtland Mead did the voice of Lloyd well in this as he did with Gus from Recess which was a hit or miss show. This show was consistently solid. Some people find it different or boring/corny. I admit some episodes are bad, but the episodes that are great are truly excellent. I just love some of the hidden adult jokes when I watch the show again as a young adult. As a child I would not get some of the jokes. The voice acting is what makes this show great and its creative idea. Sure some of the plots are better than others, but in the end this show beats up and bruises the cartoons of today for the most part.moreless
BEST SHOW EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG i love this show so much! one of the greatest shows ever to be made with a great show and creative idea of an alien society living at a huge space station with some action going on! Lloyd is a nice aLien kid who just turned into a teenager in the episode "The Big 1-3." Lloyd also has a little sister and her name is Francine. She has two special brain powers known as Telekenesis and Telepathy. I always loved to see her do it! She is my favorite character because she is so awesome being a little sister with great powers that i dream to have! Lloyd i also think is cool and he has very interesting and nice friends! I remember Douglas, he is the walking and talking brain! He also has superior intellect and wears glasses, it is too bad this show ended quite a while ago like the Weekenders. At least i think its still on Toon Disney to watch those great reruns but unfortunately i don't have that channel anymore along with Nicktoons Network. Still though, Lloyd in space will always be in our memories for fans like me! Have a great day everybody!moreless
I don't know why people put a low score on this show.
This show is one of my all-time favorite, it's really good and is still interesting to me. But too bad they stopped making new episodes. I usually stick around to watch this show and decided to make my first review for it. I gave it an 8.8 instead of a 10 because some episodes weren't that good at all. like babysitter lloyd, Campout on zoltan III, and The Hero of Urbit-Knarr. which made the show pretty boring. there are pretty good episodes like Caution: Wormhole, Kurtlas the Symbiotic Boy, Girl from the Center of the Universe, and Lloyd Changes His Mind.moreless
