Take 2: Galaxy Quest
"I'm not doing it! This episode was badly written!"

A masterclass in casting.
- Alan Rickman as the well-spoken English actor-with-a-capital-A.
- Sci-Fi queen Sigourney Weaver playing a sci-fi queen who really goes to space.
- Tim Allen being flash.
- Tony Shalhoub being weird.
You couldn’t do better if you had all the actors in the world at your disposal.
Fortunately it doesn’t get squandered and Galaxy Quest has become a perennial favourite. Always a pleasure to come back to it.
