Space Station 76

Anyone heard anything about this? It's a comedy set in the future but a 1970s future -

brief clip of set here:

Love the fake wood paneling, but see no reason just from that to even watch the first episode.

Hard to watch the 'first episode' when it's a film.

We'll have to wait and see.
In the end it'll depend on the balance between comedy elements and homage to productions from that era.

My bad, the set was so cheesy I thought it to be a TV show.

Seems like a premise that would work better on TV than as a movie, intentional cheese or no.

Looks like Anchorman meets Galaxy Quest meets Space 1999? I'd give it a go unless reviews and word of mouth are horrible.

This looks absolutely ghastly but, people of a certain age (like me- age 45) will love it!

Patrick Wilson's character really needs Will Ferrell to pull it off but then people would just claim it as Anchorman in Space so...
