Absolutely, disgustingly, satisfying
21 May 2006 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

One of the greatest shows on BBC, I can't believe how Harry Thompson thinks of this stuff! The show revolves around oddly coloured characters and weird settings in every-day London. This show should be on for ever and ever, and it DOES make South Park look like Scooby Doo, only this show is smarter than South Park because it actually isn't pointless. But anyway, it's dark and surreal, just the way that I like it. This film is like John Waters making animation along with help by some other great folks. I am sad, however, that the creator died...rest in peace Harry, and may your show live forever unlike you did however Well, I hope you enjoyed reading this comment as much as I did writing it, because I really hated writing it. No really, I have a bloody headache.
