Underrated Hidden Gem
7 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Tucked away on the web, this excellent series has never been as appreciated as it should be. Along with much of the other work of the very talented Tom Konkle and David Beeler, this has yet to reach the audience that is surely out there for this nutty smiley silliness.

Konkle and Beeler are full of excellent and original ideas that lift them out of the chorus line of post-Python, British inspired Absurdist comedy and what they have to offer has real warmth and charm. They deserve better ratings and a far wider audience.

"Invention with Brian Forbes" apes British style talk-and-tech shows like the classic 1970s "Tomorrow's World" but is cleverly character driven rather than attempting a direct parody.

I hope more people will take the time out to check out this show and other Konkle and Beeler productions to be found on the internet
