    This show would be so much better without the Judd character. Whatever writer or suit who thought he'd be funny should be fired. The character should be thrown out the airlock straight into the gravitational field of poop.

    Just watched the most recent episode. I almost never bail on a show before the first season is complete, but I think I have no choice. This might very well be the least entertaining show I've ever watched.

    “It’s a ring of s#*t”

    ...pretty much sums up the show for me.

    Just now catching up on the thread. I was hoping the general sentiment would trend positive as people watched more episodes, but I guess not. I'm enjoying it and will continue watching.

    Because you're stranded on the ship?

    The good news is it should get back to Earth in three years, at which point you can get off...

    Oh man, I have a couple episodes on deck and came here to see what the current diagnosis is. Looks like I might just delete this one for good. I have enough stuff to watch, anyway.

    Only 2 episodes left in S1, so I’ll finish the season.

    Taking one for the team, eh? :D You are tougher than I. I went ahead and deleted the two I have on deck and the ones scheduled (I never even set up a Pass).

    I keep expecting things from earlier episodes to come into play, making for more humor in the later episodes. But with this most recent episode, I realized that's simply not going to happen. The whole idea of everyone acting like they were experiencing oxygen deprivation, only to find out at the end of the episode that there was no issue with oxygen at all was just beyond ridiculous.

    Besides, a ship designed to be in space that long would have to have a way to make its own oxygen. There's no way they could store enough for the entire journey. And even if they could, then the issue of oxygen supply would have immediately been an issue in episode one when their trip suddenly got 10x longer.

    I realize that it's science fiction flavored comedy.
    But moving the White House to Buffalo really kills my suspension of disbelief.

    I don't think they were acting that way because of oxygen deprivation but because of sleep deprivation due to the never ending beeping.

    And it turns out that the beeping was the ship telling them to recalibrate for the new baby.
    ... but no beeping/recalibrating occurred when the ship lost passengers (the deaths)
