Quotes

District Attorney Ferguson: Ladies and Gentlemen of the jewellery, might I remind you that we no longer live in the age of the steam engine and the straw hat, and if it is a crime for my client to kill a man in cold blood, then my client is guilty. But if it is not a crime, then he isn't. The end.

"Thierry Towelling"? Tee hee.
29 May 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Excellent sketch comedy show, which got even better in its second series. It combines surreal humour with very clever and precise writing and production. Shaun Micallef is genuinely interesting and charismatic. The best series of sketches was probably the claymation p***take "Attentione, il est Myron", with "Sotto Voce", and the "holding the door open for people" sketch coming a close second.
