I was recommended this podcast at the bitterne nerdageddon convention and I have just listened to the first episode and am LOVING it!!! Definitely a must listen :)
Take some excellent production elements, throw in some actually factual information, add a dash of Trevor & Simon whackiness, a bit of Sophie Aldred awesomeness and a part Doctor Who/ part Transformers (without the copyright issues) and you have Episode 4 of Strangeness in Space. Completely off-the-wall and into orbit!
I love it. Laughin' every few minutes. Chronicles of Riddic-ulous and awesome for it.
All I can say is mirthlings get ready to swing your pants along to awesome adventures!
This is one of those shows that you'll cry with laughter. None stop giggles from beginning to end. Each episode gets funnier
Just listened to episode 3. It is a prequel to the first two, telling the tale of how Sophie, Trev, and Simon got to space. Mad, fun with catchy tunes from Pink Custard, and a few celebs dropping in along the way. Brill!!
Trevor Neal, Simon Hickson (who still dont do duvets) and Sophie Aldred (Ace from Dr Who) take us on an intergalactic adventure of strangeness, its a veritable feast for your auditory canals. Half an hour of pure escapism and its Free!
Go on, tell your friends.
Superb production on a micro budget, full of cartoon wit and invention. Not sure what people like musictechman are on about, we thought the sound quality was exceptional for a podcast. I guess the internet is full of audio nerds who want everything to sound like it was mixed at Abbey Road!
Great to hear from Trev and Simon again, this is their usual brand of surreal silliness and well worth a listen. I really got into it and was really sorry when the first one was over!
A delightfully silly listen - and definitely one for kids, too. (Can totally imagine it being the perfect thing for a family to listen to on a car journey, for example.) Especially love Trev & Simon’s presence (and the songs!)
Podcast is unlistenable on earphones due to terrible sound production. Watch out that you don't damage your hearing.
Poor poor poor
Even if, like me, you don't remember Trev and Simon from Saturday morning telly you can still enjoy this series. Sophie Aldred is delightful, the jokes are silly and there is even something to sing along with.
Brilliant podcast - Love it - Just make sure you don't drink while listening - spat my coffee all over my computer monitor through laughing Twice lol :)
A good fun podcast with a fab cast.
For months this series has been interesting to me as I've been wondering what it was about. After a very long wait and finally hearing today's second episode, I'm proud to say this is what crowd funding should be about. Bringing together talented writers, actors, directors and a lovely producer together to create a fun for all the family. It plays on the styles of Red Dwarf and hints of Doctor Who given the who aluminium Sophie Aldred and Rufus Hound (series 9) are in this. Absolutely fantastic project and hope more comes from it, even hoping for CD versions ;) Great cast, great production 10/10 please keep supporting this wonderful project and hope it continues to grow 😀😀😀
Fantastic 1st episode. Thoroughly enjoyed it and looking forward to the next episodes! Pink custard all round!!
You can hear where the laugh track was supposed to be, this was terrible.
Really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next episode.
Love it love it
More please sir
Loved it - absolutely loved it, was worried that it wouldn't live up to the pre-release hype on Tw*tter, but T&S prove that TV execs know nothing and that they should have been given their own TV show years ago - hopefully this new podcast series will find them a new audience, they certainly deserve it.
Good to see Trev & Simon back in action with their special brand of Saturday morning fun. Suitable for all the family.
A fantastically funny audio series full of complete nonsense that will just make you want to listen again (and sing about shoes for days). There’s something for everyone in this series, with plenty of spaceships, robots and aliens for the kids, and 80’s/90’s comedy legends Trev and Simon for the adults.
Brilliant first episode!
An excellent fun audio that is suitable for the whole family.
Put this on in a car trip with the kids, you will all enjoy it.
This would work well as an animated series.
