Canadia 2056 (1,2)


Hello, a new series starts today, Canadia 2056, the first series of 10 episodes centers around the socalled Ipampilashian war effort of the Canadia, in the second series they get lost in time. I think the series got better as it evolved over the 2 seasons and 24 episodes it ran . I start today with a double episode to get you aquinted with the dry wit..

Canadia 2056 is a Canadian radio series which premiered on CBC Radio One in April 2007. Canadia 2056 is a science fiction comedy written by Matt Watts. The series centres on Max Anderson, the American liaison on board the only Canadian spaceship in an otherwise American space fleet When Watts came up with the concept for Canadia: 2056, one of the influences was an early video game called Space Quest. His vision for the world of Max Anderson and the crew was not the clean aesthetic of 2001: A Space Odyssey but the early episodes of Doctor Who where technology is kitschy, thrown together and a little cheesy. It's a future of big buttons, computers with flashing lights that make "whirring" and "tinny" sounds and regular plungers with consoles attached to their wooden stem.
 
In the year 2056 the US has declared war on the Ipampilashians and has sent the American armada to destroy their planet. Canada has sent its only ship, The Canadia, in support of the American mission but the Canadia is not a warship. It's a maintenance ship (they change light bulbs and plunge toilets). Max Anderson is the first American ever to be stationed on the Canadia. He was put there by the American admiral (his mother) to toughen him up but keep him out of any real danger. The only thing that Max and the crew of the Canadia agree on is that no one wants him there.

Heh heh heh, now I understand why you were so interested in getting the last radio play over so fast :) Now this sounds really interesting, I mean: Inspired by Space Quest? That really may be good, the first three Space Quests may well be the funniest games I ever played. Thanks again for an interesting post and enlightening us humans!
