    Its the funniest thing on tv (BBC3) at the moment IMO. Classic zany mad "cult" tv in the making there (maybe its trying a little too hard to be "cult" though).

    I love the way each episode has a groovy dance/rap/song. My favourite character is the fortune-teller guy. Kills me every time he speaks :rotfl: .

    I've seen a few episodes, and I agree, it's really quite funny. The mod wolves were excellent.

    I also like the idea of the zoo owner who doesn't know what the animals are called. "This is the hairy Russian carpet guy". "Do you mean 'bear'?" "Well, if you want to use the Latin..."

    Not a fan.
    Tries way too hard to be wacky. Toocontrived for its own good.

    I do find the guy who plays the villainous doctor character very funny though.
    He was also in "Dark Place" playing the early 80s beefcake character ( a bit of a Dempsy!) and I was most impressed to find its actually his own voice ! I thought they were making some gag that he didn't speak english very well.

    I agree that it is a bit too self-conscious sometimes, but it IS very funny.
