Goofs

The boom mike is visible over the Director when he's sitting in front of his monitor in the "Now we know" sketch. Interestingly, it's a sketch about making a film, so there was equipment that was clearly intended to be seen, too, which probably made it confusing. See more »

Very funny surreal comedy
25 September 2008 | by ewaf58See all my reviews

Just catching up with the first series from 2006 and must say it's given me quite a few belly laughs. I loved The Green Clarinet man sketch - how we may wish to have our very own clarinet to sort out awkward office managers.

I still haven't worked out the weekly Number-Wang quiz show - and nor have the contestants by the look of things.

It's at times very inventive and played with genuine wit. I laughed out loud at a sketch ( not sure from which series) featuring a cheap looking pedal bin shaped Robot that has a switch to change it into either a Cheese-bot or Petrol-bot.

Regardless so say it get's confused and fills up a car with cheese - and then fails to commit suicide at it's own failings when further confusion means that it covers itself with cheese instead of petrol.
