I don’t know why, I guess the picture, I really wanted this to be a story about him robbing a store for meth supplies.

I hope every episode follows this formula;

First 3/4 of show: demoralizing comedy associated with bureaucracy, engineer personalities etc…
Then ends on an uplifting note; Voyager, Mars Rover, Science Payload launch, successful work with private space firm etc…

While I may have an overly romantic view of our space program, I really don’t want that taken away from me with more cynical comedy.

What? Broken dreams of flight and the false promise of a Space Age never to come? HILARIOUS!

Sounds a lot like The Dish. On this show, perhaps there will be cows instead of sheep. McKenzie must be so tired of sheep by now.


#6

Demoralized, deteriorating NASA? Sounds like Wings of Honneamise.

To keep it true to life it probably needs to be more like the first 7/8 of the show.

Flight of the Conchords is about dirt-poor characters in a crappy NYC apartment with pathetic friends and love lives and poor prospects for the future.

But - it’s one of the least-cynical modern shows there is! It’s a beautiful and wonderful show, in no small part for that reason. If this show has a similar tone - and I see no reason why it shouldn’t - it should definitely be worth a look.
