The actors often did not see the script for the next episode until 2 days before it went to air. See more »

A brilliant example of meta-fiction, with many a wink to the camera...and loads of gore (hilariously fake). This spoof of hospital soaps was a joy to catch VERY late at night on TV. The production itself looks like a high school film class put it together...but that's only the start of the fun!
