hilarious comedy adventure
Old-timey maritime fun with stellar performances from Ireland’s comedy dream team.
very funny and imaginative
Charming and plenty of laughs (though a few misses as well). Would love to see how it develops.
Nautical but nice.
A wannabe swashbuckling maverick captain whose only obstacles are his no-nonsense second in command, and the humdrum scientific missions that pay the bills. Great cast of comedians and sketch writers in this, with scripts that nail the rare kind of imaginative world-building audio can provide. Three ripping yarns to start with, here's hoping for more in Season 2!
