A fast-paced sketch show performed by an energetic young team with much potential. The sketches were dark and zany, the preferred style of the times, and covered traditional themes (James Bond spoofs, paranoia) as well as contemporary subjects (satirising BBC satellite channels and youth programming), all to varying degrees of success. One memorable recurring sketch featured two young TV executives pitching ridiculous ideas for shows (extreme variations and hybrids of existing series) to a commissioning editor intent only on accepting productions featuring the presenter Alan Titchmarsh. Another regular spot, Outdoor Wee, featured celebrities who were interviewed while urinating alfresco.
Stars Robert Webb and David Mitchell.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
