Quite the off-beat episode. I really enjoyed it. The pit droid was hilarious. I liked his doggy-paddle when the gravity gets turned off in that room. And the introduction of a vertically-challenged colonel was also pretty funny. Again, a very quirky and enjoyable episode.

I get to whom this episode is aimed to, but I always cringe when droids are portrayed with the personality and mannerisms of a living being (except when they don't talk). As such, I'm not too fond on this episode.

The episode was fine, but there were a couple inconsistencies that bothered me:
1) "Swimming" through air (as though zero-g turned air into water)
2) The pit droid had a republic logo on his shell, plain as day. None of the CIS droids apparently noticed.

Haven't we seen NASA astronauts do this since the 60's?

I thought this was a fun little episode, but there wasn't much to it. Sort of a kid-friendly installment.

I've never seen an astronaut move through air without pushing off of something solid, probably because physics don't allow for it. There's little-to-no resistance if you're paddling against air. It just looks wrong.

Awesome video, BS. I thought this was a largely amusing Gomer Pyle meets The Dirty Dozen episode. A preview for the next episode is below. Spoiler Warning: more comedy between WAC and the Colonel.

Sound in space doesn't bother me for the same reason lens flares or everyone speaking English doesn't bother me - it's used (and arguably necessary) for the audiovisual presentation of the material. The "swimming" motion - while admittedly minor - is a decision on which nothing aesthetically is hinged, and it just looks wrong (in the same way someone Looney-Tunes-style walking off a cliff and not falling would look).
