"Cosmic Wind"

Never Originally Aired (CBC, Canada)
Episode 13: "Cosmic Disco" (Bravo, USA)

A discotheque occupies an entire planet situated somewhere in intergalactic space. As is the case for all Saturday night hot spots, entry into the disco can be difficult. A customs officer hand picks the clientele very selectively. For one inoffensive crank in particular, admission is very difficult. The discotheque attracts an odd clientele - extraterrestrials, creatures of the sun, an intergalactic adventurer named Milla Jovovich, Conrad MacLeod from the film Highlander (played by Christophe Lambert), and Deepak Chopra, guru of to stars. It seems to be similar to a discotheque on Earth…. but in appearance only. When extraterrestrials party, their lovers' quarrels are more shocking, flirtation is more scintillating, feats are more flamboyant, beautiful women are different, and getaways are clearly more spectacular!
