Episode two isn't as overstuffed as the first, but it manages to push the population of the universe ever outward.
Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers starts out roughly. If there is folly in its ambition, there is virtue also. The show's dedication to world-building sets it above the competition. Effort is made to establish a plausible universe with recurring races, planets, technology and conflicts. It rises above its premise of space western to become more of a space opera in the Star Trek vein, and it does it all in twenty-two minutes. Well, it tries.
The first episode features an African American character as its indisputable star. He travels to Africa which is presented with nuance and as the source of all power in the episode. J.D. ultimately uses his brain to save the day.
