Is it an island or is it a lunatic asylum?
19 October 2011 | by (Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

Daily Greet! "This is Jinsy" is a surreal, satirical, ever-humorous look at life on an island administered by craven Arbiter Maven (Justin Chubb) and his ever-cynical assistant Sporrall (Chris Bran) by way of tessallators in every chalet and field. They labor in a Tower and under the sometimes bewildering eye of The Great He.

The tessallators, which look like a cross between a parking meter and an oscilloscope, spy on residents and also broadcast a range of light entertainment including island folk dibbler Melody Lane ("What's in my Handbag Today", "Types of Wood"), Weather Monk Tracee Henge ("Brrrr!" "Thud!", "Gentle Wafting!") and Sandy's Choice (a talent competition hosted by a dog).

The tessallators are also used to dispense justice to inebriates, petty thieves and other ne'er do wells by way of mild electrical shocks which honestly do wear off after several days and have only set a few small fires. One of the highest rated shows on Jinsy is "Punishment Roundup", hosted by a delightfully evil Joon Boolay (Harry Hill) who never seems to get tired of suspending dance vouchers and administering electricals!

Sporall and Maven are supported by Soosan Noop (Alice Lowe), their nearsighted tech, and Trinch (Geoffrey McGivern), who labors in the Law Caves under a stalactite. The Jinsy players round out the population of the island, constantly changing knitwear, wigs and genders to add to the surrealism.

Guest stars are also on hand to add to the lunacy. Especially funny are David Tennant as Mr. Slightlyman, Peter Serafinowicz as Eric Dunt, K.T. Tunstall as Briian Raggatan and Susan Horrocks as Mrs. Stenton.

Whether Maven and Sporrall are inadvertently exposing corruption in the island's wedding lottery, beheading an Ool bat, finding the way of the cupboard, making sure the spoons are clean or transferring name worms, "This is Jinsy" is always good for a laugh and repeated singing of the catchy songs (It's cold and it's wet and it looks just like an onion...").

Nightly Bye!
