    Did anyone catch this on Yahoo? I quite liked it. It's hard to describe - there were funny bits, goofy bits, some great genre parodies (including an alien who speaks only in Matthew McConaughey quotes) and some very insightful observations. There was a bit that reminded me of the talking, philosophizing toaster from Red Dwarf (I toast, there for I am), etc, and the ship's AI is a babe (even as in one instance she turns into a game of Pong)!

    It reminded me somewhat of the 70s show Quark.

    But with all that good stuff, the show also feels a little amateurish in presentation, though it gets better as it goes along and you get to know the characters.

    It took a little bit of time to warm up to this Paul Feig project, but it ended up being rewarding. I think Hyperdrive is infinitely better, but it's still worth a watch. Agree about Natasha (the equivalent of Hyperdrive's Sandstrom)...she is amazingly attractive.

    Yahoo is a channel now? Yet another streaming service to try and keep up with?

    Sounds fun, though. I'll try and remember it.

    Not any more. Yahoo Screen is now dead as a parrot pining for the fjords!

    I found a Yahoo app on my TV that had this listed as available, but none of the videos would play. I'll try again later.

    A space comedy with Milana Vayntrub? I'm in.

    Yeah, I saw that. I'd never hear of Yahoo Screen, but assumed it was some pay stream service. The Yahoo app was listed as a newly available one on my Vizio TV, so I thought it must be current. So is on the web the only way to see this show, or is it carried somewhere else (Hulu, Netflix, etc).
