The only difference is you don't have the scifi logo in the bottom of the screen and no commercials.
There is NO new content, and every episode IS censored.
So why that many stars from "The Rotten Review"?Read more ›
This motley band manages to get into some very strange situations and thus manages to do some decent parodies as well as original humor. Star Trek and Star Wars are obvious targets but we also see 2001: A Space Odyssey and I, Robot taking shots.
I have to say I don't know how things went from the first episode to the second. The ending of this first made it more like a one-shot. But what can you say about a series that manages to kill off G-d in the first few minutes? There are no sacred cows. Nothing is safe. Not movies, interior decorating, beauty pageants, politics, youthful rebellion, etc. Check it out.
They did an excellent job on the packaging. Artwork on the disks are very nice; high quality. The set doesn't appear to be mass produced. Keep in mind, the episodes are censored; foul language is beeped.
The first, great, thing I noticed is that there are no previews and the FBI warning is quick. I appreciate the fact that the menu isn't annoying.
The special features, called "Extras", aren't bad, just limited. Don't expect any commentary, deleted scenes or a featurette. The extras are: A Character Gallery (worth seeing, unlike most DVD galleries), Artwork Gallery (lots of sketches) and Teleplays (DVD ROM). Unfortunately, I don't have a DVD ROM, therefore, I can't report back on those features. Maybe that's where the commentary, deleted scenes and a featurette are hidden. After my drive arrives, I'll update my review with ROM feedback.
At $20.99 on Amazon.com, this DVD set is a great Christmas present at a very reasonable price.
It's good, but not great.
I was surfing the amazon site for a sci-fi comedy in the animation vein, looking for a comic pulse that both myself & adult son could have a few laughs with. After scoping many amazon reviews I narrowed it down to a handfull of choices. In the end it was the cover that sold me. A Very Sexy Babe, "Six" (her name).
So then we popped in the disc and rolled the dice! We struck laugh-out-loud gold!!!
This won't be for everyone of course. There is a crude selfish captain, a gay robot that is in denial, a sexy and very smart "Babe" (Six), an ugly mean four legged "cow" of a bitch, a computer named Bob with a human need TO BE, a teenage masterbating lizard, all coming together in a crude adult fashion to boldly go where no rightous crew would dare contemplate (in ANY frame of mind).
Although adult in the xxx sense, more like an x-rated Felix the Cat movie with smart dialog, there is an overall character to "the crew" that when taken has a whole - has "CHARACTER" in spades. Acting in ways that belie their crude foul mouth surfaces; the result is that at the end of each CONTOVERSIAL episode you'll find: We Don't Torture!, To Each His Own!(gays/lesbians)/, No Violence!, Don't take advantage of the disadvantaged!, A good living wage for all! - you get the rift.
My wife was passing through the living room and was stopped COLD! She was'nt going to have it! Finially, we continued - as it had a redeeming quality. Still she refuses to watch ANY of it!
So strap yourself on the launching pad and roll the dice! Prepare for a WILD laugh-out-loud COSMIC BLAST!!!/ whether you get off the pad depends largely on how much crude is in your tank.
(Yes, there are a lot of bleeps.)
