Tripping the Rift

Show Summary

Tripping the Rift is SciFi Channel's new comedy. Using CGI-animation and grotesque adult humour, Tripping the Rift is something new and exciting for the whole family. Providing that family is old enough to at least buy beer. Characters: Chode: The purple, yet frighteningly Kirkish, captain of the Jupiter 42. Has serious sexual issues. Has a penchant for petty theft, cheating and pornography. A true blue professional captain. Also part owner and captain of said vessel. Darph Bobo: The manic, stupid and utterly hateful Vader-spoof. Has the same homicidal tendencies as his Sith alter-ego, albeit more random in his delivery of punishment. Chode's arch-nemesis. Gus: Gus functions s both the ship's engineer and Chode's personal whipping boy. He has somewhat queer manners, which the other characters seem to find offensive. Bigots, all of them. Six: Six of One was liberated from the Federation by Chode. Somehow the debt held by Six has turned towards "love" for Chode. Six is not wholly disgusted with Chode's disgusting habits. Love has flourished on worse foundations... Has received programming beyond just being a love slave, and is the Jupiter 42's scientific officer. T'nuk: The ugly feminist. Wow. That was redundant. Actually she is not the perfect feminist, as she has an overactive libido and loves the rooster (What's another word for rooster?). Not a positive thing in a four-legged alien. Also the co-owner of the Jupiter 42 and thus the prime rival of Chode. Whip: Chode's dumb nephew. Half-witted is too positive, as Whip is a hormonally disturbed teen. Welcome to puberty and space. Bob: The ship's onboard computer. Neurotic. Not exactly good for anything except for whining. Oh. And drinking. Do not travel in space with a neurotic drunkard as your navigator/AI. Bad idea.moreless

    This show is sorta like furturama and star wars yet in a way different. I used to watch this show alot and i havnt seen it in a while. I like how the purple guy acts hes funny. He talks like he knows everything. THe girl has got to wear a bra sometime i mean jesus she turns around it like a trapoline. Lol but i think its rather disturbing and i like it so it kinda makes me kinda disturbed but who cares. We all watch these shows for the fun in it and coolness so why are we different than anyone elsemoreless
  • Ever wonder what Fry and Bender watch ?

    Like Futurama, Tripping The Rift was cancelled and dragged back after 2 years for a third season and perhaps a movie. There is no middle ground here, you will either like it and kick back on the couch with a drink and popcorn, or you'll turn it off in the first five minutes. The plots are artfully "borrowed" from other TV shows, films and current events, but blended together in such wild and funny ways you will find yourself freezing the tivo and saying to anyone who cares - " Did you catch it ? ... they took that snip from ...". Keep the kids away, there are a LOT of things here you don't want to have to explain.moreless
  • Cliché, adult humour, artful "taking the piss".

    9.0
    A cleverly crafted sci-fi comedy combining the exquisite freedom of computer generated animation with insider jokes that everybody over twenty five will be able to relate to. Even those who don't get the subtle details will be entertained by the light hearted nature of Tripping the Rift. I saw this show purely by accident and became an instant fan. Social commentary interleaved with galactic adventure yields a genre bending romp that will have you screwing up your nose in distaste as often as rolling in the aisles laughing uncontrollably. Well worth looking into if you have even a bad sense of humour!moreless

  • You can tell the show is heavily influenced by futurama and star trek. But after a while the jokes just go rotten.

    2.2
    Don't believe me look at this.



    -Whip= The lovable fry. All though confused always tries to save the day.



    -Chode= The impulsive Bender. Both like to get drunk, not do their jobs and have a non-stop desire for women (or fembots).



    -Six= The smart but often looked down character Leela. They come up with mastermind plans but no one else wants to use it.

    All though not as slutty both try to find their meaning of life.



    -Gus= Zoidberg! No matter what zoidberg tries to do everyone hates him. Only time that didnt happen is when he was doing something right in their eyes. And well slap on Gus and you got the rip-off.



    -T'nuk: Like amy but much more worse.



    -Spaceship Bob= Planet express ship. What a lawl.



    Plus there was an episode where they travel back to Roswell. Instant rip.



    The sex jokes just go stale. I mean yes, it is an adult show but how many times can you slab that in a show. Either all this show is stupid and lame. So avoid this show like the plague.moreless
