A comedy panel game in which being Quite Interesting is more important than being right. Stephen Fry is joined each week by four comedians to share anecdotes and trivia, and maybe answer some questions as well.
Amid the Civil War in 17th-century England, a group of deserters flee from battle through an overgrown field. Captured by an alchemist, the men are forced to help him search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field.
For anyone who feels particularly annoyed at many of the aspects of modern life, (e.g. Mobile phones, today's fashions, the state of the country) this show is for you- It involves many respected british commedians and other entertainers from the 30-40 age range being, well, themselves, that is to say Grumpy, and moaning about many of the things which really get on their nerves. They involve subjects which you will hear being moaned about from any grumpy old men, and also provides (by the very able Geoffery Palmer) Social commentary on the state of the entire country as a whole. You will probably understand the references best if you are in the same age range, but the commedians are very good at what they do, and you will probably find something which you agree with, as well as good viewing.
