Trivia

In the "Pages From Ceefax" extra, the "News in Morse" says: "Government finally caved in from pressure from local residents associations and clamped down on market traders who set up their stalls before six a.m. The traders, known as "vebs" (very early birds) will have to comply with local authority regulations, or face a mandatory jail sentence of twelve years, ten of which must be spent in confinement, the remaining two strapped to a brass wheel."

Same Flaws As DIRECTOR'S COMMENTARY
8 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

I didn't realise this comedy series spoofing the golden era of TOMORROW'S WORLD was first broadcast in 2002 and looking at this site's info on the show it originally started off as a series of nine minute sketches . This was probably the right format for the show because watching the 2004 series with episodes that last for 30 minutes I instantly became aware that the novelty out stays its welcome as a large chunk of an episode's running time is taken up with say an operation on a presenter by medibot ( Don't ask ) which drags pace wise and stretches a one trick pony into an unnatural length

A lot of people have spoken on the flaws of DIRECTOR'S COMMENTARY especially the point that the show may have been a good idea as a five minute feature in a sketch show . These flaws are identical to the ones seen in LOOK AROUND YOU which bizarrely started off in a format that suited it best . I have to repeat that 30 minutes an episode is too much time for this comedy series to be successful
