So I watched the first episode tonight, not expecting very much.
Yes, there was some slightly irreverent humor... and it didn't come off to me as being overly funny as a whole. But I was somewhat surprised by the seriousness that coasted along underneath the humor. In particular the tension between the captain and his XO. There were certainly jokes made at the expense of their previously failed marriage. I felt that it added something to the show, though.
It may or may not end up being a type of "Galaxy Quest" sort of show, but I think it deserves a few more looks. At least it is not "Family Guy" in space. That would have been a disaster.
Did anyone else watch this?
