Needs more planning

It’s very entertaining and is very professionally performed but be prepared for the storyline to meander and fall apart as they seem to change their minds about the backstory with every new season. Individually the episodes are fun but each leaves more frustrating and unanswered questions than it answers

Worth a WHOLE BINGE

I frickin’ love, love, LOVE this show. The flip between their different iterations - just brilliant. I hope they are able to continue! Also, I want to be a character- even if its a death rattle.

Me x 7 ,

Is this supposed to be funny

Honestly this is just sort of moronic. I get this is improvised but there is not anything interesting or loose plot to hold it together. Add to it loads of commercials and weak acting, I just can’t get into it and all. A much better space theme improv is Mission to Zyxx.
