Storyline

Art is an independent film-maker with big ideas... sadly nobody will listen to these ideas, with the exception of his best friend Jones. The series follows Art as his overactive imagination turns every day into a cinematic classic, with homages to 'Top Gun' and 'The Shining' to name but a few. Written by Keira86

Innovative and very funny.
23 October 2004 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

Following the adventures of an independent film-maker whose daily life is strangely similar to the movies that he loves...

And it is brilliant. Is it a sit-com or is every episode one sketch in a sprawling immense sketch show? Who knows?

Looking at the level of homages one might (might) be forgiven for comparing this to Spaced. However, while this is not necessarily more sophisticated, it is definitely more than a self-indulgent fan-boy spot the homage exercise. Rather, it is like watching very British and reduced versions of classic Hollywood films.

The best bit? The conclusion of Top-Gun which takes place in a driving school: "You can give me a lift anytime".
