Hilarious in Hindsight: The movie Interstellar, which came out in 2014, is a serious take on a spaceship crew needing to find a new planet to evacuate humanity to after Earth is rendered uninhabitable. Of the characters in the movie, there's a captain, a female officer who believes love can solve all the world's problems, a robot, a young female scientific genius, a scrawny-ish tech guy, a black guy, and a coward who backstabs his teammates because he's too scared to keep going with the mission. Does any of this sound familiar?
Periphery Demographic: The show originally aired on Canal Famille, a French Canadian channel that was aimed towards the whole family, and thus had content suitable for kids. However, it managed to gain a lot of fans from teenagers and even adults thanks to its humor (including jokes that kidswouldn't necessarily get), memorable characters, and dramatic moments.
Spiritual Successor: Of Red Dwarf, with similar styles of stories, characters and a distinctively low budget visual style reminiscent of the early seasons.
Interesting is that among french speaking Quebecois, Red Dwarf is very obscure, yet the shows share too many parallels to be ignored.
The Woobie: Despite all the problems that he has directly caused to the crew by being a Jerk with a Heart of Jerk, the final two episodes show Brad genuinely regretting his actions and making him lovable in his own deeply flawed way.
Woolseyism: Applies to the English subtitles for the movies, where many of the jokes are Woolseyisms rather than literal translations, and slang is used quite often.
