It's the 26 second delay
Ok, it's funny when you say it.
I won't lie, it's pretty bad. A few bits amused me, but only in an amusing way - not in a 'good' way.
It was kinda funny watching the idiot actor fake captain come to the realization that his entire crew is fake as well.
Yeah, it’s getting worse, even with the 26 second delay
Yah, they need to stop trying to make comedic conversations resolve around that joke. The attempt in Ep 3 was beyond dreadful, and didn't make any damn sense to boot...
The 26 second delay annoys everyone but the absurd gravity flip doesn’t?
Here's what I don't understand: This is one of the worst, least-funniest comedies I've ever seen on HBO. So why am I still watching?
Because you're paying extra for it? I'm guilty of that.
…it's like watching a train ship wreck
This isn't just one of the worst comedies on HBO. It's one of the worst shows I've ever seen, period. I have to say, I find this show utterly perplexing. I just can't figure out what exactly the creators were going for, as the show completely fails both as a comedy and as a drama.
That's an excellent question, and one I kept asking myself over and over again while watching the third episode.
Ditched it after two episodes...and it takes a LOT for me to ditch ANY sci fi show...
It hasn't shown any growth or potential for growth. I'm formally and officially out and the 1P has been deleted. After all, the big boy programs are starting to return this month.
I just want to know how they convinced Hugh to star in this crapfest.
Considering the people involved (who in their last outing nabbed Julia Louis-Drefus how many Emmies?)*, it's not too surprising he'd want to be the lead in their new show...
*I just looked it up...it was six years running.
If you cruise, you gotta love the towel animal in episode 3.
I thought episode 3 was better than episode 2.
I enjoyed the "whole crew is fake" bit, even though it was obvious from the first episode that too would be coming. The one crew member whose response to any question was that it was "nominal" was great. Another crew member's sole responsibility was to dim the lights and make the steering wheel appear and retract. The steering wheel didn't do anything.
The bodies orbiting the ship bit is lame. Can our resident physicists let us know if the ship would have gravity sufficient to make objects orbit it closely like that? (I'm thinking not, but then again they do appear to have artificial gravity on demand, just like Star Trek, so who knows)
They keep doing the 26 second time delay bit. It wasn't even that funny the first time they did it, now that we're at the two dozenth time, it's obnoxious.
I did laugh out loud at the "Which came first?" response to the guest being served chicken with his egg. Jared-From-Silicon-Valley isn't getting many laughs out of me in this series, but that was one of them.
Aw, crap! I was thinking I wanted to just delete E03 and kill my Pass. Now, I guess I must watch E03. Thanks, man.
I quit after E2. Plenty else to watch. But if it becomes funny and you guys tell me it happened, It's easy to catch up on HBO stuff.
oh yeah? so we do the hard work and you just reap the benefit?
if the show ends up being great, we will keep it a closely guarded secret!
I'll take the odds against that and bet the house.
