Dark and daft, A Series of Psychotic Episodes meanders through events (real and fictional) in Miriam Elia's life and features such surreal things as a talking wall, the ironic stripper fairy, a mosquito who has seen too many Hitchcock films and Hansel & Gretel visiting an all night garage.

There are also a selection of recurring sketches in show. In the first series these included the annoying New Age Mother; historical radio series Revising History; and MC Veryfasttalk, a rap DJ who moves to the countryside for work.

Recurring sketches in the second series include the paranoid diary of Edward the Hamster (1990-1990) and Postmodern Pat, in which the children's TV character realises everything is fiction.
