Sad-Geezer ‘Tripping the Rift’ psychometric test and it''s based on your perception,
intelligence and social interaction - sort of.
Your point score was less than 45%. Your knowledge of Hitch Hikers is absolutely diabolical yet, for some strange reason, you suspected that you had done very well. Your attitude to the Tripping the Rift series is despicable and you have almost certainly never seen a complete episode.
Your point score was between 45% and 70%.
Your point score was in excess of 70%.
Tripping the Rift Characters are pretty unique. The writers sharply avoided the usual sanitised format, (normal dude, strong dude, head dude and wimpy female) and went for a cool mix of misfits.
In the pilot episode, we were introduced to the Character Six of one.In the pilot episode, we were introduced to the Character Six of one. The hyper-sexy cyborg of the Jupiter 42. Luckily for us, T'Nuk was not in the pilot. Because if she was, TTR would have never been picked up by a major network!
If you were to see T'Nuk in a pub, you'd run out the door as quickly as possible.
Whip: (n) a device used to motivate others through pain
Slacker (n): a teenager who accomplishes absolutely nothing, nor wishes to do so. A creature who is a waste on resources. Ex (see picture on left)
Sarcasm: saying something, but meaning something else, in a slightly comical way. ex: Naming the shows laziest crew member after an instrument used to motivate others to accomplish work.
I was pretty worried about this episode. Sci Fi Channel didn't put up any advertisements for this episode in the week preceding its airing. Instead they aired the very crappy season two ads full of season one stock footage. I was expecting another Cool Whip, a terribly animated episode. I was pleasantly surprised. The animation wasn't too bad. So either it wasn't bad to begin with, or the good animators in Montreal did a classic college student last second rush job to make it look presentable. If the latter, thank-you!
It can be inferred from the other episodes and pilot that Chode is a lying cheapskate who wouldn't hesitate to burn his own crew to save money on heating, but we've never really seen how far his cheapness goes until this episode. Whip approaches Chode in the hall and asks him for his allowance.
This one starts off with the crew watching a boxing match on the big screen. The match is on pay per view, but Chode decided to let Bobo pay for it, again, and is stealing the signal from his ship. But just as its starts to get interesting the cable goes out, as well as most of the power on the ship. Oddly enough though, the gravity kept working.
The Sex Slave 1 is Bobafett's ship. And its bloody huge! It's almost half the size of the Jupiter 42, and it only has one crewmember. If you were to see the Sex Slave 1 on the road it would be a Lincoln Navigator. It's big, it takes up two lanes. And its outright intimidating. It's driver would be the butchest woman on the road. Try not to piss her off. It's hard to believe that a ship that big could be operated by one man. The ship has a tiny command bridge, and no computer AI to help run the major functions.
Spankey the monkey promised to be Chode's big pay day.Spankey the monkey promised to be Chode's big pay day. He's the largest monkey-diamond ever discovered, and somehow Chode got his hands on him, my guess through a poker game. If you were to see Spankey in a bar, he'd be the impromptu entertainment.
With a bud lite in one hand, and a Hawaiian guitar in the other, he'd go from table to table singing songs for tips to buy more beer. Like all monkey-diamonds, Spankey sings in an enclosed perfectly cut diamond. He can sing opera, 80's rap, and maybe even folk music.
Mistress Pain is a sex slave, but only in the loosest sense of the word. Yes she's technically owned property, and a cyborg, but this bitch takes orders from no one!
If you were to see Mistress Pain in a bar, she'd be forcing some rich sub to buy her top shelf booze, like Johnnie Walker Blue. She wouldn't drink it, she'd probably dump it on the floor, and force her slave to lap it up. Scotch lovers everywhere would be outraged, but her menacing crop would keep them all at bay.
Bernice is the not-so-loving wife to Darph Bobo. While Bobo controls the entire Dark Clown Empire, she controls him through years of insults and sexual deprivation. If you were to meet Bernice is a bar, she'd be drinking white zinfandel wine.
Bernice would be trying to pick up the insecure young guys and would make zero attempt to hide her wedding ring. Any guy will do, so long as he looks better then her husband.... easy enough. Bernice met Darph Bobo many years ago in a pub. He was drunk and she looked attractive, so he took her home that night.
Adam 12 is the son of Confederation Commander Adam.Adam 12 is the son of Confederation Commander Adam. He's a rebellious young punk who is in denial that he's going to one day be exactly like his father. You won't see Adam 12 in a bar. But he will standing outside the door pestering you to buy him a beer. Adam 12 is exactly like his father.
Francis Bobafett Dinkleman 3rd is one of the finest bounty hunters can buy. Which doesn't say much for the bounty hunter industry. If you were to see Bobafett in a pub, he be drinking a Guinness, and it'd be warm. Everyone would be staying away from him, because if you said the wrong thing around him, he'd throw your head through a wall. Bobafett is a master stalker of his prey. He studies their past and knows their habits, just so that he could soon capture his it for the bounty. Running is futile from Bobafett. He'll follow the trail and destroy everything along the way.
