First series, and although some references may be slightly dated and the sets might be a bit flimsy it justs adds to the charm of the show. Great gags and slapstick humour, and the rarest thing in a sitcom, something original.
The idea of being frozen in time for 3 million years, a quirky AI computer that has gone a 'bit peculiar' after 3 million years, a being that has evolved from a cat and is therefore obsessed with his appearance - these are some of the ideas that make the show so distinctive and amusing. Very easy watching.
