Armando Iannucci’s ‘Avenue 5’ premiered this week and set the ball rolling on another promising television comedy expected to mirror the success of the Scottish filmmaker. The show is a sci-fi satire and attempts to derive its humor by parodying space travel fiction.
The show follows the crew and passengers of a touristic spaceship, Avenue 5 captained by Ryan Clark (Hugh Laurie). The ship experiences a malfunction which leads to its flight duration to be increased significantly, forcing all the characters to get along with each other.

Avenue 5 Episode 2 Spoilers:
The second episode of the first season of ‘Avenue 5’ is directed by Natalie Bailey — and not Iannucci who helmed the first episode. It will take a look at the consequences of the events of the first episode.
Most certainly, the episode should highlight the initial attempts to rescue Avenue 5 from its derailed orbit and lengthened trajectory. The episode will see Rav, the leader of the control team for Avenue 5 on Earth arranging a meeting with a NASA representative. She will be trying to hatch a rescue plan in order to safely bring the passengers and crew of Avenue 5 back to Earth on time.
However, one can expect the rescue attempts to not go completely smoothly. On the other hand, an engineer working in an apparently hidden area of the ship will be seen expressing a rather hopeful theory regarding the ship’s future. With the engineer in a “hidden” part, one can expect some form of twist along the lines of a conspiracy.
Moreover, Karen (Rebecca Front) will become the representative of the passengers and speak on their behalf. This is expected to result in some particularly humorous scenarios given the character’s rib-tickling spat with Matt in the first episode.
