A 1991 sci-fi comedy vehicle for [[ProfessionalWrestling professional wrestler]] Wrestling/HulkHogan. In it, Hogan plays Shep Ramsey (not to be confused with ''[[Series/HellsKitchen Chef]]'' [[Series/HellsKitchen Ramsay]]), an interstellar peacekeeper who loves justice but hates sitting around. After attempting to thwart another evil plot, failing, and allowing the man he was supposed to be saving to die, Shep is contacted by his superior while riding in his ship. When his superior suggests he take a vacation, an annoyed Ramsey smashes his ship controls, discharging all of his ship's energy, forcing him to land on a planet and recharge his ship for six weeks. The planet? Earth. {{Hilarity ensues}} as he becomes neighbors with overall wimp Charlie Wilcox (Creator/ChristopherLloyd) and tries to understand Earthly customs...and contend with the forces of arch enemy General Suitor after Charlie fooled around with Ramsey's equipment, which had sent a signal to Suitor of Ramsey's location.

* EveryoneHatesMimes: Well, Shep doesn't seem to, since he really thinks he's helping out someone in trouble, but his violent attempts to "assist" a hapless street mime are nevertheless played for laughs.

* OneWingedAngel: General Suitor, [[spoiler:but you don't see just how extreme it is until the climax.]] But you catch a glimpse of it at the beginning. It seems to happen only when he gets injured, as we saw him got his hand cut off and later stabbed in the chest.

* BloodKnight: Shep exhibits shades of this. He doesn't seem to like the idea of being off-duty for an extended period (though it ultimately does him good), preferring the most challenging mission he can get as soon as he can get it. And he's genuinely disappointed when the neighbors turn out to be threatening to sue rather than physically assault him. Maybe he just needs a vacation...
