Space Opera E21: Spaceballs (1987) & Galaxy Quest (1999)




This week we're joined by podcaster and writer Becky Darke to dive into the hilarious world of space opera parodies. We'll be dissecting Mel Brooks' iconic spoof of Star Wars, Spaceballs, and Dean Parisot's love letter to Star Trek fandom, Galaxy Quest.
