  • look around you food episode

    Well, I'm happy to say I caught another episode of this last night, after not having bothered since the disappointing first one, and it seemed to have found its feet a bit: still think it was losing steam about 10m before the end, but their predictions about the future of British food were superb!

    Automated casserole restaurants, an electronic 'pea counter' that might well have ended up in the Innovations Catalogue, a 'vegetable orchestra' and a man who sweated away 56 stones of body fat in 6 weeks by using slimfast gunk and looking at a 'scary picture'...all great stuff. Maybe they can 'remix' the half hour shows to 15m each for the DVD release...

    By the way, I also noticed there's repeats of 'Darkplace' very late on Wed & Thurs nights on C4 as well...I know someone mentioned they were missing it last time we did this thread!

      Agreed. After 20 mins, it does rather run out of steam and the "sports" themed show was indeed gash.

      ( Sermad, what's that word you use when something is awful...? )
      If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

              I like to add 'utter' in the mix too.

                  'pump' You do realise this is now going to enter my conversations on every occasion, and raise questions about where it came from...

                  By the way, the next 'Look Around You' is apparently about computers, so they should be right on home turf there...

                  Just a thought, but can we adopt 'pumping the pony' as a Brit version of 'jumping the shark' ? "I reckon Nathan Barley was pumping some serious pony last week", kind of thing?

                        Well, last time this happened was with Rich Hero's 'That's the badger!', which STILL slips out on far too many occasions for comfort...

                          I'm going to stick up for LAY 2 - even the sport pumps - it's an acquired taste, but I've stuck with it ( and Nathan Barley ) and it's grown on me. I'm a big fan of the first series, and so far have enjoyed that more, but I'm glad they didn't just re-hashing it in a more visible slot which they could have easily got away with , so I respect them for trying something different. The humour's quite strange and subtle - more than you might give it credit and is worth repeated viewing, if you've got the first series DVD I recommend watching the commentaries as there's loads of genius little hidden touches going on some of which they let you in on - and there's and audio option to have just the music and no commentary at all, which is nice

                          One thing that annoys me is the titles sequence and idents - everything else has so much attention to detail, but these really look like they've been farmed out to some kids who've done no research and just thought they needed to make it look "cheesy" - maybe I'm too familiar with photoshop/Flash etc, but they've used all the cheap tricks that didn't exist in early 80's graphics I reckon would have been pretty easy to have done well, so I find baffling!

                              smart - any chance of a link to the remix?
