It should have been made...
10 June 2003 | by JengoSee all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see the pilot episde and thought it was fantastic. I was completely gutted that some idiot said no to what could have been a massive cult hit. I wanted more and I'm sure I wasn't alone. The pilot was really funny and very original. You guys made a great production - have you ever thought about making it into a movie? Now that would be cool.
