Tripping the Rift The Movie Unrated DVD Cover Art

Ah, it seems like just yesterday we were all watching the first version of this show on the internet. And now we’re all old as hell. But I digress. The show that’s got three seasons under its belt (and isn’t wearing much else, most likely) now hits DVD with a seventy-five minute feature-length flick. Stephen Root, Maurice LaMarche and third season incarnation of Six, Jenny McCarthy, are all on hand for this mayhem. Here’s what Anchor Bay has to say by way of synopsis:

Tripping The Rift: The Movie is the saga of a bunch of derelict mutant misfits who live, work and play on the starship Jupiter 42, which is controlled by a neurotic A.I. known as Spaceship Bob. Bob’s neuroses are kept in check by the verbally abusive pilot T’Nuk while the ship’s inner workings are tended by Gus, the melancholy robotic chief engineer. No one’s really sure what job is performed by teen slacker Whip, but everyone has a definite idea of sexy android Six’s specialties. Captain Chode, a walking purple blob of rancor, hates his crew and they hate him right back. As Chode and the crew work on their latest money making scheme in the space Princess protection business they are unaware that a cyborg killing machine, know as the “Exterminator,” has been sent back in time by the evil Bobo to eliminate their copulating captain, a mission that isn’t as easy as it might seem.

You could have used that synopsis to describe life here at Needcoffee…right up until the bit about the spaceship. Then we sort of diverge. A bit.
