This parody series is an unearthed 80s horror/drama, complete with poor production values, awful dialogue and hilarious violence. The series is set in a Hospital in Romford, which is situated over the gates of Hell.
Live from his luxury apartment in London's glittering East End, Dean Learner (Club owner, Celebrity Manager, Entrepreneur and Publisher of high-class gentleman's magazines) invites you to meet some of his closest friends, Man to Man.
In the "Pages From Ceefax" extra, the "News in Morse" says: "Government finally caved in from pressure from local residents associations and clamped down on market traders who set up their stalls before six a.m. The traders, known as "vebs" (very early birds) will have to comply with local authority regulations, or face a mandatory jail sentence of twelve years, ten of which must be spent in confinement, the remaining two strapped to a brass wheel."

With the United States churning out more garbage per minute than ever before by way of TV and cinema, this debut from Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz is a refreshing change.
Some might call it the greatest show of the last few years. Others might say the greatest show of the decade. I would say this is the funniest show ever to air on BBC2. Ever.
Eight ten-minute episodes in the style of the Open University programs we all know and love serve as nostalgic reminders of 'the way things were', sticking to the dean-pan formula to provide constant entertainment and never-ceasing hilarity.
Popper and Serafinowicz, who will no doubt continue to flourish, provide excellent comic timing, with this perfect parody.
With a second series in the works, things can only get better!
10/10, *****/*****, fabuloso!
