Psychoville

Watched the first episode of Psychoville last night. As you'd expect from League Of Gentlemen members Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton it's dark, unsettling and funny in a did-I-just-laugh-at-that? kind of way. No idea where it's going or how all the characters' stories tie up, but I'll stick around the 'Ville to find out how it develops. Can't say the same for Krod Mandoon And The Flaming Sword Of Fire...



Soundtrack: Kids by MGMT.

I loved it. My favourite moments were with the one handed clown dude fighting Punch & Judy. I guess he's the most overtly comedic character on display (and the one most reminiscent of the League of Gentlemen's cast of characters). And I liked the quip about the bath being too cold to kill the guy in (he'll catch his death!). And when Dawn French punched that nurse... can't wait for more.

They hooked me from the first scene: "Cashier no. 3 please." :)
And, yeah, Mr. Jelly has to be the standout character, not quite as insane as Papa Lazarou, but still creepy. Loved the "cash in hand" bit!

I'm all about black humor and horror and parodies, but this series kind of lost me. Sad, because I did have great expectations.
