He broadcasts his show each week from an orbiting space station. The show's presentation was fully wrapped in its quirky premise, featuring on-screen graphics and background sounds to simulate a space station atmosphere, "using active, innovative cinematography to ease the visual boredom that often accompanies interviews with talking head(s)."

In each episode, Rick would interview a number of authors and artists, along with filmmakers, animators, and the occasional futurist.
