What makes Moby Alpha a catch is the use of the helmets. Timing is everything and the LED colorscape that were the helmets elevated the comedy. They were simply fascinating. Moby Alpha is an example of necessary spectacle. Had the helmets not been what they were, Moby Alpha would likely have been a generic comedic adaptation of a boring book. The writing and comedy would not have been strong enough to carry the show. Thankfully the brilliance of lighting made it something worth seeing.
