    I know a few of us were discussing it in the Star Trek thread, but it demands its own post.

    Man, season two has kicked it up a notch. This show that was marketed as Star Trek with dick jokes is actually a heavy hitting, pretty high-concept sci-fi show that hits you in the feels when you least expect. Family Guy in space, it is not.

    Season 2, ep. 3 ‘Home’. Wow, I actually teared up a bit at the end.

    The whole thing is available on SBS On Demand if you’re keen for a look.

    I don't mind it. Still another situation where how does this show get season two when Firefly got just one measly season? That said this has a nice cast and is one of those shows you can smile through for 42 minutes.

    Tried it, but I really don't like Seth McFarlane so I can't get into it at all.

    They are, indeed, kicking it up in season 2. Episode 2 was hilarious and episode three had a tear in my eye.

    There were a few issues of logic I had in that episode.

    Captain Ed: ‘They’ve kidnapped two senior officers and thrown them in a concentration camp for being Libras. I can go rescue them right’

    Admiral Ted Danson: ‘nah, they just have to stay there because, reasons’.

    That was just bizarre. Who would ever join a military that would abandon you like that.

    I was a bit perturbed by that proclomaton by Admiral Ted as well. Luckily i sustained and watched episode 6 which was probably the strangest and funniest episode thus far. Bordus is out of control in season 2.

    who would have thought we'd see Bordus with a moustache and Isaac in underpants hahaha
