Jupiter Moon

Jupiter Moon - A 1990 space-based soap operaJust discovered an old British television show called Jupiter Moon on Hulu. Naturally, I’m interested in learning more about any space-oriented show I can find.

This one dates back to 1990 and apparently ran for 150 episodes, with each episode being 30 minutes long. The basic concept was that an old spaceship called the Ilea has been left in Jupiter orbit and been re-purposed as a college.

What can I say? I watched the first episode…and that’s 30 minutes of my life that I’ll never get back. Appallingly bad. Terrible writing, bad acting and no real “space” feel to it at all. Very obviously an extremely low-budget production.

Interestingly, it was set up as a soap opera, with episodes appearing three times a week for most of 1990. Wikipedia has more information about the show.
