GRS Rating: 5 of 5
Notable Cast: Indra Ové, Judy Loe, Angus Macinnes, Bruno Eyron, Julia Bremermann, William Oliver, Kourosh Asad
Duration: Each episode approximately 45 min
Comments: A large, permanent space station orbits earth. A multi-national group crews Unity, which is funded by a commercial venture. This TV program presents their struggles, which are a part of everyday life in space. Many problems seem to stem from the for-profit operator.
Does this sound like StarCops? That's because this show is very similar. There are visual cues like "Box"-like devices. There are other allusions to classic science-fiction films. However, this Isle of Man / German program is a bit different. It seems only the British can make good, futuristic space drama! Recommended.
