S*#T, but quite funny.
31 July 2001 | by (Tasmania) – See all my reviews

This is such a dodgey program, it's almost funny. The "special effects" are so great, you can even see the strings holding the "floating" objects up. I'm talking about the episode in which Plaskitt decides to go space traveling to the planet "Heavy heavy." Don't worry everything turns out okay.

The receptionists (?) hair is pretty amazing and that is about the only good thing about the whole show.

If you really want a laugh (but you have to be getting pretty desperate) tune into this terrible program. There probably are worse shows out there, but you would have to look pretty hard to find them!

Avoid this unless you are REALLY desperate for a laugh, and don't blame me for the consequences if you do - signs of a bad reaction are laughter at even the weakest jokes, an addiction to kids television programs - going so far that you would record episodes when you are out and the worst, most serious one (you should go to a doctor if you get this one!) an urge to paint yourself purple or become best friends with the alien next door (be careful, this could be dangerous for you and the alien).
