    That's the trouble with nostalgia serms - it's just not as good as it used to be ...

    Don't want to nit-pick, as I did enjoy it, but my worries when I heard they were doing a full half-hour rather than the previous short format were borne out, as I think there was 10 - 15 really good minutes worth there, padded out alarmingly...which was a shame. A very amusing spoof of a c.1978 - 1984 BBC TV show, but none of the parallel universe OU stuff that made the first series so brilliant...

    Having said that, 'Little Mouse' was great, and Toni Baxter's number had me fairly merrily chortling too (but not much more than an actual Hot Gossip video would have, which was the problem I had with it, I suppose). Did it really do anything that wouldn't have been just as telling if they'd just put together a clip show from the BBC's late 70s Tomorrow's World/Micro Live archives?

    The soundtrack was up to scratch, mind. 'You might be forgiven for thinking there's an actual orchestra in the studio...'

    Yaaaaah! That's exactly what I was saying to the wife when it was on!

    "It's not supposed to sound like THAT!"

    yeah I saw that too! ace.

    From 10 minute skits to 30 minute episodes is fab. I think it was a big cult hit on dvd as I know loads of people that bought it.

    Darkplace was ace! The broccolli episode was amazing...The sanchez song makes me cry laffin everytime!

    Just saw a clip last night - looks as though they've gone a lot further and are spoofing late70s/early 80s "tomorrow's world..."


    including:- this new style of music called Rappin'

    "Im Rappin, I'm Rappin, I'm Rap-Rap-Rappin, Im Rappin, I'm Rappin, I'm Rap-Rap-Rappin, Im Rappin, I'm Rappin, I'm Rap-Rap-Rappin, Im Rappin, I'm Rappin, I'm Rap-Rap-Rappin"

    In the meantime... set your recording devices for the current series of 'Monkeydust' on BBC3. Genius.

    This is the best news I've heard all week... such a genius show.

    Now all we need is the second series of Darkplace!
