Let us see. Is this DVD based on a book, a radio show, a television series or the screenplay cobbled together by the creator? We are guessing the television series since the music was exactly the same and the plot pretty much wobbled from one scene to the next so the creator could get his goofy idea of the universe in front of you just like the television series did but with less grace, less time and better special effects. Die hard towel heads will no doubt love this. But then they probably loved those long showers after gym class as well. The rest of you will scratch various body locations and say 'huh?' This might actually be the response the creator wanted but he is dead now so only a few of you can legitimately find out. We liked the planet building shop although there were major errors in celestial mechanics, which we don't have the time to go into. Klaarg undoubtedly would tell you about the spaceship problems but he could not watch it because of the robot. For a short movie it felt really long. We hope there is not a sequel or another remake although you are probably already working on both.
