‘Moonbase 8’ is Showtime’s space-themed comedy that introduces us to a deadbeat dad who used to own a helicopter tour business. Now, Cap (John C. Reilly) is on his journey to find redemption as he leads a ragtag team of would-be astronauts at a lunar simulation site in a remote desert in Winslow, Arizona. Cap and his colleagues, Skip (Fred Armisen) and Rook (Tim Heidecker), reach the camp to prove to their higher NASA authorities that they can survive in moon-like conditions. Their end goal? Get picked for the next real lunar trip.
Since our trio of astronauts is extremely inefficient, they face multiple obstacles during their experiment. For instance, the premiere episode that dropped on November 8, 2020, showcases how the team tackles low water supply and Cap decides to dig a well. And one of the members almost gets shallowed into the sand. Later, the guys also reflect on their past. Rook recounts how he used to be a stoned Phish follower and Cap speaks about his dream scholarship. Skip aims to live up to his astronaut dad’s name and Rook wants to “spread the gospel of Jesus Christ” in the universe. Cap wishes to redeem himself before his family and friends in Honolulu.
Well, this workplace comedy, with a space twist, seems to have kicked off with a solid start. And after a plot-packed, humorous debut, ‘Moonbase 8’ is now all geared up to release its next episode. And here is everything you need to know about it.
