Quotes

Mike Flex: Of course, the buzz word of the sixties was "Mini". Women wore them, men drove them.
Anna Daptor: And women drove them as well, Mike.
Mike Flex: Yes, but not quite as well as the men. And like a woman, they were good to look at, and easy to handle.
Anna Daptor: Oh really? Well, mine was just like a man. It used to shoot off and stop immediately.

The most well-produced show ever!
26 March 1999 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

K.Y.T.V. (instead of SKY TV, an english satellite channel) is a parody on not just English television, but ANY television. They've got news, commercialbreaks, TV-dramas, gameshows, talkshows, phone-ins and all the stuff only a TV-channel with no skills and no budget can produce. The writers of this really funny series are Geoffrey Perkins and Angus Deayton, who also stars as the TV-station's anchormen. We follow the rise of the station, from the start (which is postponed almost a year) through the highlights as "Brown-nose day", "Talking Head" (a show on sex, of course), and "The Sexciting Sixties", a trip along the memory lane which ends with a superb documentary on Woodstock 3 - complete with Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Frank Sinatra (?).

Every detail in the series of K.Y.T.V. is polished on and gives a realistic impression. It feels like you're watching a real TV-station, only this one is full of goofs, jokes and a high number of puns. It is the most well-written and well- produced show on television I've ever seen. The actors' timing is absolutely impeccable and I'm pleased to see they are mocking the hysteria of TV as a media. I mean, watch an average satellite channel in any given country and you'll find equally funny stuff - not meant to be funny!

K.Y.T.V. is english humour at it's best - great comedy to which all of us can relate - we've all watched TV since we were kids, right? So if you're getting a chance to watch it - do!
