Storyline

A collection of bleakly dark comedy sketches pushing the boundaries of taste, decency and television in general, shot using new and different techniques and fading slowly in and out of each other against a slow musical soundtrack. Regular themes include death, insanity and, most often of all, the medical profession. Written by Anonymous

24 April 2003 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Chris Morris is very likely disturbed. But in the way that people buy the paintings and doodlings of the clinically insane, Channel 4 has realised that he's disturbed in a way that makes compelling television - compelling in the sense that it's almost impossible to stop watching because you just have to see what's going to happen next. Maybe I've just lived a very sheltered life, but I had no idea that television could be this deranged or bleak. I'm not sure whether it's genius or pretensious planned lunacy, but I am sure that I'll be watching the rest of the series - though I may never be the same again by the end.
