Superb observation of this screwed up world of ours.
10 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Monkey Dust is absolutely magnificent – As an UK Adult animated sketch show it pushes the boundaries and is extremely thought provoking - IE - First sketch - Advertising Executive comes up with new campaign to re brand Cancer for the masses to improve its name . ( which is typical in this screwed up world of ours ) It is funny ( not funny Ha Ha but funny peculiar / reflective ) but has some had some real thought written into all the sketches – IE ( Father who kills himself because he's divorced and cant do enough for his son (a real emotion of fathers ) It makes fun of TV ( IE New Reality show called Sitting on the Toilet which views someone sitting on the bog ) Everything is fair game – Muslims / Asylum seekers / pedophiles / Swearing /.....It's / cynical / reflective / funny / clever / well written / .... Nothing is spared – Black Humour / Reverse Political Humour / Oh the list is endless - It observes this corrupt / sold out / strange / world we live in. ...... I know the writers will go on to do more well known things but here its raw and magnificent. ( and not watered down by appealing to the masses ) It is a real treat where the writers are allowed to express their views of the world with no limits and ....... its simply superb.
