best show nobody has ever seen
20 March 2005 | by andycrosierSee all my reviews

There seems to be a tradition in the U.K whereby the BBC gives all the truly great shows no exposure and airs them at ridiculous times. Its almost as if the programme controller wants to keep these 'gems' to himself and 'burn it' joins a long list that includes 'seinfeld'. 'curb your enthusiasm', 'arrested development' and 'nighty night'.

'Burn It' is without question the greatest drama the BBC has ever produced. Every person i have introduced to the show have described themselves as 'hooked' and have described it as 'the greatest television they have ever witnessed'. Series 1 and 2 were originally aired on BBC3 (at a time when nobody watched BBC3) and were then given one late night airing on BBC2 with virtually no marketing.

I doubt the BBC will ever release the series on DVD (despite campaigning on the BBC3 message board by the few who have seen it) but maybe in 20 years it will be 're-discovered' by an Indiana Jones explorer of television archives and given the praise it deserves.
