Is It Any Good?

This futuristic show combines low-budget sets (remember the clearly Styrofoam worlds of the original Star Trek?) with high-caliber young comedians, well-chosen by show creator Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Freaks and Geeks). Its goofy scenarios offer lots of lighthearted entertainment as the crew tries to resolve problems such as having fudge as their only food source, romantic drama, and fighting off alien life forms. Of course, like all lost space crews, they also want to make it home.

It's silly and lots of fun, but the comic rhythm is still a little clunky, meaning that not all the jokes hit the mark. Luckily, the talented cast offers an array of strong and quirky personalities whose antics maintain the sometimes ridiculous stories' momentum. Other Space is a nice addition to the still-too-small "space comedy" genre.
