A joy to finally watch this in its entirety
24 February 2013 | by (Adrift in the Roaring Forties, Oz) – See all my reviews

Matron: "Happy, happy, joy, joy.... Oooohhh, my beloved Administrator's office"

If you like pantomime ("Oh yes we do!!" "Oh no we don't!!"), comedy improv, student review theatre, or - as a previous reviewer astutely pointed out - Bottom (or the Young Ones), Let the Blood Run Free is well worth your time to track down.

Every minute is packed with gags: slapstick, gore, visual gags, crap puns, and some joyous Australian slang. "You dribbling warpo!!"

Now that S02 has been released on DVD, I have finally managed to purchase and watch all 26 episodes in the order in which they were made.

Back in the mid-90s, Channel 4 in the UK used to broadcast this show to the post-pub crowd in the wee small hours of Friday and Saturday nights. They also used to constantly dick about with the times, making it very difficult to watch this show on a regular basis. As a result, I always assumed I'd missed an episode or two when I used to catch it and the plot seemed to have veered off in bizarre tangents.

Thanks to the miracle of DVDs, I now understand that this was entirely intentional on the part of the scriptwriters. Sorry, Channel 4.
