Storyline

A sketch show that had the effect that you were channel surfing, with each sketch being a spoof programme on different fake channels. Regular items included Colin Corleone - a man who thought he was The Godfather, a 1950's serial 'Betty's Mad Dash', an American talk show, movie paradies, plus the eponymic Glam Metal Detectives who would fight crime and play sell-out concerts every week. You'd dip in and out of these and other sketches as if you were hopping around different TV channels. Written by Bluejam

There was a video
1 October 2004 | by wobblejonesSee all my reviews

A VHS video was released by the BBC in 1995 but only the first three episodes were on it,(it's order number was BBCV5574),I have that one but don't know if a second one was ever made, I also only ever managed to get the first of the comics as I never saw any more for sale.It was a great series and they should have made more. I've talked to a lot of people about the "Glam Metal Detectives" to see if a soundtrack was ever made (there was a lot of brilliant music in it), but no one seems to have heard of them. As it says in the title they were detectives who toured as a rock band so as not to blow their cover as crime fighters. The rest was good as well, what with "The Big Me", "B-Movie TV", "Bloodsports", "Betty's Mad Dash", "Call Mickey", "Colin Corleone" and more, why it ended I don't know.
