New Episodes Kicks off this Month!
Hey El Moochadores, want a see a grand science fiction adventure chuck full pointless action but also lacking in exposition or character growth?! Want to see something that has almost no integrity, but tons of special effects and lens flares!? Lens flares!?! No I’m not talking about the new Star Wars film (sorry, I couldn’t help my self…STAR WARS VII SUCKED!), I’m talking about this great science fiction parody on the youtube called Transolar Galactica!
First released in 2011, Transolar is a funny, and award winning, web series that “pokes fun at film tropes in Science Fiction cinema, ranging from Star Trek and Star Wars to Firefly and Battlestar Galactica.” The series follows the exploits of the star ship Transolar and her luckless crew. led by Captain Remmington Trigger, the series takes the crew through a series of inept decisions that lead to disastrous consequences. The series is amazingly well produced and features some incredible special effects work along with funny short stories that usually end up with some form of death.
Recently the series has returned with Episode 1 of the New Origin Series, “The Return of Icarus.” I’ve posted the first episode below along with two episodes of the original 2011 series. Transolar is produced by Kinetic Energy Productions and for more information you can check out their Facebook page.
