Series: Homeboys In Outer Space
One of the first sitcoms UPN ever aired.Two 23rd century black guys from the ghetto get into misadventures in space. They travel in the "Space Hoopty", a cheap, flying low-rider controlled by a Sassy Black Computer.

This Sitcom, in the name of comedy, ignored most of the known laws of astronomy, including the rule that you can't breathe in a vacuum. It had a very low budget and some people found thought the show came across as somewhat 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.
