Are you tired of only wondering about this?.....
6 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

.....then by all means let me know directly at the above e-mail address so that I may arrange for a copy (or copies) for you. Shades of "Fawlty Towers" --- a brilliant British series that was apparently too good to last beyond twelve episodes. What a crying shame, for just like John Cleese's brainchild it had not yet begun to fight, so to speak, with so much promising ground left to cover. But alas, it was not to be. Still, host Jonathan Ross makes the most of his time spent profiling a baker's dozen (actually more) of some of the most compelling folks to have ever emerged from pop culture's most enticing nether region: Psychotronica. The charismatic Ross comes off like Michael Weldon crossed with Robin Leach, and has a 'reel' flair for tributes to his arguably historic subjects without a trace of condescension. Too bad he hadn't been calling the shots on the set of "It Came From Hollywood," but that's another story.
