  • WORTH THE WATCHING

    9.5
    when it was announced that BBC was going to run the 6 episodes of this show - I though WOW, about time they get something funny over here.



    It does have that red dwarf feel about it....but with a dash of typical Brit humoour.



    If you want to fill 40 minutes with silly sci-fi from the UK - then this show is just for you - you may not like the off-the-wall feel of the style in which this show is presented - but trust me - when you get through the episode - you will want to joice the crew and head off to a crazy adventure with them for the next 6 weeks.



    If you can't wait - try to find the 6 episodes on the internet - they're out there - you just have to know where to dig - and they are worth it - just silly fun to fill the time in front of the tele~!



    Peace...moreless

    • York: I don't know how to inform you of this, Mr Jeffers, but.
      Jeffers: Yes?
      York: You'll live.
      Jeffers: Will I have a massive scar?
      York: (Whispers) Massive.
      Jeffers: Cool. (Smiles and nods)

    • Commander Henderson: You said. You said "by the time we got to Uberon..." This thing is eating my crew.
      York: Only the slow ones. She's picking them off. Doing exactly what I'd do. I almost love her.

    • York: When this being took a trip on this ship, she booked a one way ticket to death. She and I are alike. Killers. Strangers to mercy. Only one shall survive.
