More bizarre wackiness from The Comic Strip.
30 November 2016 | by (Drowning in a sea of brown & black.) – See all my reviews

This is one of the episodes I remember seeing way back in the day when this show was on MTV.A group of strangers is participating in an experiment that involves pretending to be in the Iron Age but their village is in the quad of a university.In typical Comic Strip fashion, lots of things are implied and/or left to the imagination and that's not always a good thing.At one point Rik Mayall knocks a guy out and drags him into a hut and we never see what happens to him.Then there is way too much implied gay sex and one of the guys ends up dead.It's hard to say much else without spoiling the episode but the conclusion is pretty much left to your imagination.Peter Richardson has some great one-liners but it's still just an average episode.Seeing it one time is enough.
