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

Loved it and wish there was more of it
19 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

This was a short lived comic sketch so that was a product of its time. Designed to feel like you were channel surfing through the dreadful satellite and cable TV shows and adverts of the time, some sketches were hilarious and others you just couldn't get at the time. The whole thing was held together of course by the Glam Metal Detectives - saving the planet whilst provide a great rock & roll sound.

Even now, if I am in a rush to do something I would regard it as Betty's Mad Dash, and if someone is very self-obsessed I would refer to them as a Morag Evans, star of the The Big Me - a spoof chat show where the hostess Morag could always steer the conversation back to her. A ladies, if you husband was watching the football, you could always call on the services of Mickey to give you a good time.
