Granted the producers wanted to repeat their success, but taking the same stars and copying the same jokes merely makes for a thin rehash. The doomed aircraft is now a moon-bound space shuttle departing on its maiden voyage from a commercial terminal with the usual bunch of loonies and loopies on board. Although Graves' paedophiliac pilot hasn't been sacrificed, nearly all the other dodgy bits have been replaced - to little avail - by a sprinkling of self-parodic guest stars such as Burr, Connors and Shatner.
