I can't tell if that means you liked it or not.

I can't tell either.

This was like an episode of Doctor Who without the Doctor showing up to save them all. It even stared a few of the same people, each in their usual Doctor Who roles!

Sci-fi comedy is tough. This is basically Quark, looks like, which is terrible. The Orville simply gave up on the comedy and embraced their "season 8 of TNG" feels. 

But... The cast and the Thick of It pedigree gives me hope.

On one level, this looks utterly hilarious. On another level, I wonder if this faux commercial is pretty much every joke they have.

The House snark vibe is strong with this one.

Well, it's The Thick of It and Veep in space. Because that's all Iannuci knows how to do.

Nacho's new favorite show premieres in January.

Avenue 5, a vulgar comedy set in outer space, was launched into developmental orbit a few years ago by Veep creator Armando Iannuci. In January, it finally touches down. As proof, HBO has released a teaser for the series, which stars Hugh Laurie, Josh Gad, and Zach Woods as the overseers of a luxury spaceship for intergalactic tourists.

The arc of the plot remains unclear, but the above clip teases some kind of catastrophic event that puts the guests in danger and forces the predictably foul-mouthed staff to fumble their way through damage control. Iannucci helmed the premiere of the series, which also stars Suzy Nakamura, Nikki Amuka, Rebecca Front, and Himesh Patel.
