I am Seeing Moonbase 8 is good as better than Chicago Med

I like Moonbase 8 on Showtime, I am 11 years old, think it is safe for 11 Years Old or Older Viewers.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Tim Heidecker, Fred Armisen, and John C. Reilly have each built a reputation and found fame for surreal, edgy sketch comedy. Astronaut training that isolates them from the outside world is a smart way to make a pandemic comedy without having to ever even mention it. The set-up provides them with plenty of material for comic bits, but doesn't really play to their strengths of pushing absurdist comedy and anti-comedy to their limits. Still, it's fun to see the three actors working together, even if Moonbase 8 doesn't allow them to go as far with their humor as their fans might hope and expect.
