Last night’s was good. I really enjoyed the karaoke opener, as well, but I’m one of those people who will do karaoke sober. I would have liked to have seen a little more about the aliens of the week, especially with the awesome make up and costumes they got, but that’s just me. Though quick eyes may notice they have been subtly reusing some of the alien prosthetic appliances. This week’s “Elevator Guy” looked like a repaint of the alien working on the redwood seeds from the pilot.
Given the humorous nature of the show, I feel like you could almost use John and Gordon as sort of the “mouth of the audience” commenting on situations as we see them, speculating on things like “how much you wanna bet when we scan that plot device we find solution a?” “That would never happen, I mean, look, circumstantial evidence and solution b is obvious.” and then they can bet on the outcome by having to watch embarrassing movies on their ships version of netflix to screw up their recommendations or buying a round for the whole crew. maybe switch it up and ocaisionally have Bortas and Alara as the proxy. Just a thought.
