Storyline

"Agony" dealt with viewers problems. Some wonderful examples were "I can't have sex unless the family dog is in the room" and "I'm Stuffing the Turkey, He's Stuffing the Neighbour". The show was made by low budget TV station L!VE TV. Each "letter" (usually made up in a rush by some poor L!VE hack) would be dramatised and then discussed by the studio presenter and two agony aunts. The show also used bubble thoughts, an on-screen device to reveal what the character was actually thinking, although normally it was just a way to get away with crude jokes about sausages and "you came quickly". A damn good way to waste a half hour. Written by Jason Gorsedale

'Live TV!'s very own comedy-drama...
29 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's incredible how programmes like this actually manager to get made let alone aired. 'Live TV!' was hardly a bastion for anything remotely resembling quality (to put it mildly) especially as one of the most remarked upon aspects of it's program schedule was news-reading in the nude. Most of the episodes of this series 'Agony' were pretty agonsing to watch and took the format of a kind of 'cartoon-comic' story somewhat akin to a live version of those dreadful storyboards of relationship problems that appear in the tabloid press. A quite astonishing number of episodes were made and aired (many more than listed here) though they were all as pointless and ludicrous as each other. The acting was generally bad or average at best (though that's probably not necessarily the actors' fault as much as the style and nature of the format itself. At least it was better than Eastenders (though that's hardly an accolade worth boasting about).
