Canceled Too Soon #189 | Space Force (1978)

The late, great comedian Fred Willard co-stars in the new Netflix comedy series SPACE FORCE, but did you know he also starred in another television series with the exact same name? It's called SPACE FORCE, it came out in 1978, and it's basically THE PHIL SILVERS SHOW (a.k.a. SGT. BILKO) in space!

Is that a bad idea? Or could it be that SPACE FORCE was... CANCELED TOO SOON? Critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take you rocketing through space - and history - to explore a failed TV pilot that riffs on STAR TREK and beyond!

Give it a listen!
