This SitCom, [[RuleOfFunny in the name of comedy]], [[SpaceDoesNotWorkThatWay ignored most of the known laws of astronomy]], including the rule that [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace you can't breathe in a vacuum]]. It had a very low budget and some people found thought the show came across as somewhat [[UnfortunateImplications racist]]. Due to a combination of low ratings, poor reviews from viewers and critics, and protests from the NAACP, the show was canceled after its first season.
