Trivia

In the title sequence, Alan Cumming [Sebastien Flyte] does an incorrect dance move. Whereas the rest of the stewards leap with their arms up, Cumming performs a move which is a throwback to his days in Cabaret in London's West End - a Nazi salute with two fingers of his other hand forming a 'moustache'.

Funny and a scottish camp classic
9 July 2003 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

I remember watching The High Life when I was about 18 and after 6 episodes of it I felt its a shame only 6 was made however the less episodes made the bigger the legend.

Alan Cumming and Forbes Masson wrote and created 6 really funny episodes. Siobhan Redmond was hilarious as Steve and Sebastian's nemesis Shona Spurtle.
