A single series was made with a total of 9 episodes (the first being 1 hour in length and the rest 30 minutes each). The show ended on a cliffhanger. Sky reportedly cancelled the series because it was felt that the show did not fit in with the rest of its programming.
The story centres around two alien agents, Cadet Flynn and Pseudo-Cadet Niven. They are incredibly advanced and evolved vegetables on an information finding mission to Earth, where they take on human form. Their supervisor is accidentally decapitated shortly after arrival leaving the cadets to fend for themselves. Through the course of the series the aliens discover the intricacies of basic needs, like the eating ritual, the sleeping ritual and how to purchase things, usually doing so in their own idiosyncratic manner.
Their exact whereabouts on Earth is something of a mystery. The society in which they find themselves bears some resemblance to both Britain and America, as there are hints that a totalitarian Government is in charge. There are also street gangs parodying those in A Clockwork Orange. Two agents and their apparently psychopathic commander try to capture the aliens. The aliens repeatedly escape, but not without suffering occasional injuries themselves.
