Which, in turn, rips the hell out of Doctor Who. Even with such obvious roots, the fictional Inspector Spacetime, from NBC’s Community, has managed to make its own, small stamp on popular culture, enough to inspire people to create a web mini-series detailing the exploits of this space/time-travelling protector of the universe. As long as it’s not called “Inspector Spacetime”.
Blastr reports that the project featured the more straightforward name, but NBC forced creator Siv-Art Productions to change it. The result? “Untitled Web Series About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time.” Which says it all, really.
The series, a six-parter, is “only a few weeks away” according to Siv-Art. The trailer above is funny enough and the voice-over is well done. Hopefully this will translate to a decent series that isn’t too true to its source material, lest it be legally destroyed by NBC.
