I saw this show last Sunday. It made me so irritated. Irritated that I was spending a sunny Sunday afternoon indoors. Irritated that no one wanted to go with me to see it. But most of all, I was irritated that the show was so disappointing. It was walk-out worthy. But, I stayed through to see the second act since I was, well, reviewing it.
Sad, since it seems like they spent a lot of money producing it (great sets, lighting, costumes, props, etc.) But on such dreck! Oh, well. Onward and upward.
Earth: TTFN?! considers itself a campy parody of sci-fi B-movies from the 50s and 60s, including wacky comic book action and dialogue.
The schizophrenic plot has something to do with a bunch of aliens from Planet Sildenian fighting to destroy Earth because it’s “bringing down intergalactic real estate prices and driving up Sildenian taxes.”
The audience gets to vote for Earth’s survival.
In addition to this, writer Kim Williams (who hides behind the pseudonym “The Chronicler”) has half-heartedly interjected clichéd topical references, such as potshots at Governor Blagojevich, Dr. Phil and Octomom.
The cast of nine works hard to energize the material, however, I’ve never been so uncomfortable for a cast in my life.
