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

Quotes

Chris Morris: When dancing, lost in techo trance, arms flailing, gawky Bez, then find you snagged on frowns, and slowly it dawns, you're jazzing to the bleep tone of a life support machine that marks the steady fading of your day old baby daughter. And when midnight sirens lead to blue flash road mash, stretchers, covered heads and slippy red macadam, and find you creeping 'neath the blankets, to snuggle close a mangle bird, hoping you soon too will be freezer drawed. Then welcome. Mmm, ooh chemotherapy wig....

A little lunacy
16 August 2005 | by (Örebro, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I'm not going to break the trend among the comments here, and I have to support those who claim that Chris Morris is disturbed, one way or another. The 'Jam' series though are probably about the most dark, black and weird comedy I've seen in years. And trust me, I'm a big fan of black comedy but this series has no worthy competitors. Some scenes were almost so weird that I barely understood'em, and yet some scenes were really superb and made me burst into laughing. I like the way Chris Morris plays and deranges everyday life happenings such as the visits at the doctor for example. To me, episode 4 was the best (with the lunatic women with no friends) but I recommend anyone to see the series in a chronological correct order.
