Storyline

A sketch show that had the effect that you were channel surfing, with each sketch being a spoof programme on different fake channels. Regular items included Colin Corleone - a man who thought he was The Godfather, a 1950's serial 'Betty's Mad Dash', an American talk show, movie paradies, plus the eponymic Glam Metal Detectives who would fight crime and play sell-out concerts every week. You'd dip in and out of these and other sketches as if you were hopping around different TV channels. Written by Bluejam

Quality series from the recesses of my memory
11 January 2004 | by (Kent, England) – See all my reviews

Suddenly remembered this series I saw when I was about eleven when I heard a description of Velvet Underground. Funny and strange series that is, alas, lost to the world. A piece of Nostalgia never to be revisited. It seems too few people saw it to warrant it's release and we live in a world where the British public voted shoddy series The Good Life one our ten best sitcoms. Life can be unfair sometimes.
