    Never heard of it, anyone who seen it wants to fill us in - is it funny?

    It has it's moments. I'll be tuning in for sure now that this addition to the cast has been made.

    Not half as funny as 'Childrens Hospital' or 'Newsreaders' but it does also star Captain Janeway and Darth Maul.

    I wonder how many people remember that Gillan actually started out in comedy, playing most of the female roles on 'The Kevin Bishop Show'?

    Is that the body of Darth Maul or the voice of Darth Maul?

    Ah, I actually figured it was more likely to be the body. Nice to see Peter Sere...sera...that guy's still working ;)

    Which is a very broad definition of comedy.

    I assumed she'd quit Who for a big career. Where are all the movie offers?

    Ugh. Not even Karen Gillan can get me to watch NTSFwhat-evah. To me, it's not so much funny as it is really silly.

    I guess she'll be another science nerd on the team. All the science nerds are played by superhot models and/or Rebecca Romjin, and are constantly decried by the others as to how ugly they look. :P

    I like the show. Nowhere near the Zucker-Abrams level of sight and verbal gags a show in this category should have, but watchable nonetheless. And Mark Hamill played a psychotic dolphin.

    She should be a big star. Beautiful, hilarious, good actress. I wish Hollywood would come knocking!

    Very silly show but I like it (mainly for Mulgrew)

    I don't make a point to watch it but I'll watch it if I'm leaving it on Adult Swim for a while.

    Hum, is Rebecca Romjin missing? Is she still on for season three? Where's that hideously ugly science lab nerd?

    They had her doing some parody ads on that new BBC America Chris Hardwick show that follows Doctor Who where she was done up with zombie makeup. It was bizarre because it didn't seem that heavy but I found her unrecognizable.
