Synopsis
Review GALACTIC PIRATES I,II,III, (Western Connection),
50mins, cert 18, 10.99 ea.
This series, also known as THE ENEMY ARE
PIRATES, is based on an award-winning SF novel by
Kambayaski Chohei. At first viewing it seems highly
disconcerting; a fast-paced mixture of cop show, space
opera and reality warp, with two detectives, Latell, and
Apollo from the Cat Planet, sweet young cop Marsha,
and a talking computer, Dolar. They reluctantly take an
assignment to rid the universe of the Galactic Pirates -
yes, "the enemy are pirates".
I'm not sure if the plot makes any sense but it might.
There is a contemporary music soundtrack and once one
has got over the shock of hearing Apollo talking
American street jive, the dubbing seems quite good. And
the character designs are attractive.
Bizarre and excellent acid head SF comedy/space
opera/cop show, seemingly aimed at a sophisticated
audience, and the police girl is very cute too. Only the
first volume was given an 18 cert, for reasons best known
to the BBFC, and the other two could have been 15 but
were labelled as 18 by the distributor. The complete
antidote to Star-Trek. Try it.
