This is MAXWELL sitting along in the cramped space, he is instead slacking off by flipping through the channels on a TV-like screen the screen is showing surreal gameshows, talk shows, newscasts and other programming from various planets. Many of these shows are direct spoofs of well-known Earth TV shows like “Let’s Make a Deal” and “Jerry Springer” except they feature odd alien creatures winning prizes and/or arguing. While watching TV, Maxwell

And so the adventures of Maxwell begins…
