Screener Squad: Avenue 5

Avenue 5 TV series review


Veep mastermind Armando Iannucci boldly goes where he has never gone before: science fiction! But it’s still a comedy of course. Avenue 5 follows the residents of the eponymous space cruise ship as they realize they have drifted way off course. With only eight weeks of food to last a three-year journey back to Earth, difficult decisions will have to be made to keep things from going absolutely insane. Nathan, Dogget, Alex, and Rose reviewed this HBO series to determine if it’s really worth the trip or it’s as doomed as the current cruise industry.
