I recently discovered a BBC comedy called Hyperdrive on Netflix, starring Nick Frost (Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) as the captain of the HMS Camden Lock looking out for Great Britain’s commercial interests in the 22nd Century (no Prime Directive here).  It’s sort of a spoof on Star Trek, with Frost playing an anti-Kirk (though he does have his moments).  The space FX look pretty good considering; the interior sets and props look a bit cheesy, though I suspect it’s a deliberate decision rather than due to a low budget (though it could be due to a low budget, too).  It’s not the greatest comedy ever, but if you like science fiction and British humor it’s good for some laughs.  Note that some of the humor can be a bit risque.
