Satellite City is a must see comedy series
17 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a marvellous and so accurate portrayal of life in the South Wales Valleys. It is set in the Rhondda but it could easily apply to any of the valleys. When I watched it the 90s it was like being back at home at the top of the Eastern Valley. A decade later and my teenage son somehow found it just as relevant and just as funny. Boyd Clack is superb, as he is in everything he has done. He has a subtle understanding of Valleys patois and the centre-periphery antipathy towards the big city. In Cardiff of course they still eat the heads of visitors from the valleys as I suppose they do in Newport and Swansea. I once saw Boyd outside a bookshop in the city and he still had his head. The casting of Randy is an inspirational foil to the bizarre mentality of the inhabitants of this typical Welsh town.
