Fantastic! Gotta see it! Really different to anything else I've seen!
4 June 2006 | by lorraine-60See all my reviews

It is brilliant! Everyone should watch it! It's completely different to anything else I've ever seen! With great celebrities in it too, like Richard O'Brien that I love off Rocky Horror Picture Show and Toyah Wilcox! So rent it out on video or lend someone who's got it because it's really good! It also has singing in it, which makes it even more fun-tastic! And the songs are ever-so catchy, you'll be singing them all day and all night! You will want to watch it again and again! But this site does mention half of the characters which may put you off but believe me the rest of the cast are great and the characters are extra-ordinary, very different, have great costumes, OK the beginning's a little slow, but as soon as you see the first bump, you won't want to turn your screen off till the end of episode 7.
