Storyline

Straight-laced Morris Clay and fun-loving Tyberius Walker are two Han Solo wannabes who fly around the galaxy in the Space Hoopty, a used starship that looks like a winged car and comes with a smart-mouthed computer called Loquatia, who has the hots for Morris. Ty and Morris go on wild adventures while taking abuse from Ty's brother-in-law Vashti and get shown up by gorgeous bounty hunter Amma most of the time.

A waste of talent & beauty...
30 June 2001 | by Zoot580See all my reviews

Being an avid supporter of black sitcoms, which so desperately need support, I was extremely disappointed in this series. It had its funny moments, though they were few and far between. Not even the comedic strength of Flex could save the show. They tried in the beginning with James Doohan's cameo spots, but the show never had it.

The only saving grace to were the expertly selected actresses. From Playboy's PMOY Shannon Tweed, to up and coming talents such as Rhona Bennett, Paulette Braxton, Gretchen Palmer, etc.

I appreciate UPN setting up a platform for rising stars, but to compromise the standards of the network by wasting a good half-hour of airtime is just unacceptable and inexcusable...
