We try to talk about the bad science in this episode so we can focus on the dumb culture and stupid ways of the roofie rave planet Scalos.
Nick at Nite is actually still a thing, but it's "nick@nite" now which tracks. Lost in Space ran from 1965 to 1968, a three-year run comparable to that of Star Trek. Strange, right?
The Russian space dog I was thinking about was Laika. They sent her into space prior to sending humans. Nick Abadzis wrote a comic about her in 2007 called Laika and it's pretty good and by good I mean it's about a dog that has no idea she's going to be sent into space and...then return to your uncle's farm upstate and live happily forever.
