Sarah gets invited to pretentious hippy artist Dreadhead's barbecue and Alison tags along but loses it when no food is forthcoming. Worse is to come when Dreadhead produces his didgeridoo. Morpheus ...
Four mates waste their twenties in a West Country village. Morpheus, a geeky conspiracy theorist runs a mystical souvenir shop with his unambitious sister, Sarah. His scrounger best friend Kent sleeps on their sofa rent-free, and his secret crush, Alison, runs a new age healing business at the back of the shop.Written by
Take the west country accents from Hot Fuzz, the slacker camaraderie of spaced and the pub culture of Wright's trilogy and spaced, then add the super imposed sound effects and camera cuts juxtaposed with mundane actions that Wright's famous for, and a whole mess of other tropes from Wright's works, now imagine all this devoid of any humor and you have Wasted.
The show is an insult to Wright who it steals from without adding anything to the formula and it's an insult to the audience as the show is just the window dressing of Wrights work without any thought gone into the comedy, it's all style and no substance and it's completely jarring for it.
