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....

Prozac On Acid
7 May 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

How do I even begin to describe JAM ? I could say that it`s like MONTY PYTHON on acid but that wouldn`t do it justice . In fact if someone read my review and tuned in expecting to see something that was written by Cleese , Palin , Jones et al they might be shocked and upset enough to issue a fatwa against me so I`ll repeat that it`s not like MONTY PYTHON on acid it`s like...it`s like... it`s like prozac on acid .

Many of the sketches are fairly inoffensive premise wise , things like visiting a doctor , a woman bringing down the value of houses in the district and TV presenter Robert Kilroy Silk going insane , but the recurring sketch of people visiting the doctor usually involves the doctor telling the patient to drop their pants and wave their dangly bits about , or that the woman decides to bring down the house prices in her district by selling cooked human excrement from a vending stall outside a tube station , while Robert Kilroy Silk`s breakdown involves full frontal male nudity and urinating onto the TV screen . And I haven`t even mentioned a penis and testicles being grafted onto a young girl , a woman taking her decomposing dog for a walk , or ejaculating porn stars ! And every scene is shot in a surreal manner with muzak in the background

All this might have been funny to a certain degree but Chris Morris has shot himself in the foot in order to court controversy . I can imagine he expected Channel 4 to have been drowned in a tidal wave of complaints from viewers but it seems no one has bothered to rise to his bait . That`s nice to know
