A Classic Forgotten
28 May 2011 | by BantaarSee all my reviews

This is what ought to have been a classic satire. The story isn't very important: Gordon Spry, an elderly man (Richard Briers) gets a brain injury which causes him to believe everything he's told.

The point is that nobody cares about him -- not really -- and so, he's only told anything at all by TV commercials. And, as he believes everything that TV commercials tell him, numerous (and wickedly, even harshly, funny) scenes ensue.

The satire is bleak and merciless, even for the BBC, if extremely well-made. It probably came too close for comfort for the general audience, and was quickly forgotten.
