"THESE VAST CAT HEADS WERE BUILT UNDERGROUND, AND SEEN BY NO ONE"

FURTHER CRITICAL CULTURAL PRODUCT REVEALED TODAY ON YOUR "WORLD WIDE INTERNET":

BrassEye

JESSE THORN discovers a hidden internettal cache of one of the least-seen (in the US) and yet most important and influential comedy "programmes" ever to be released in the UK.

WHAT'S MORE, someone has gone through the incredible trouble of DUBBING IT ALL INTO ENGLISH.

I tell you: SOME PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET HAVE TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS.

That is all.

I attended a video-watching party many years ago during which the BrassEye special on pedophilia (I take it personally that they choose to spell it with an "ae") was shown.

We all laughed, and many of us felt terrible about it afterwards.

Thank you for this link. BTW, if you haven't seen QI, you should. Most of it is up on YouTube.

Sorry to say that I don't get British humor - even when they are speaking English. Never did. Sad.

I was educated in Alabama, though.

Now I don't get the third post of the day, either. I've been slighted.
:(

I saw the Paedo (their spelling, not mine) episode, and yeah. They went places.

I'll also toss in "Garth Marenghi's Darkplace" and "The Mighty Boosh" as a couple of other little seen (on this side of the pond) gems you may want to check out.

Similar to BrassEye, I find Chris Morris' The Day Today to be another comedic gem in and of itself.

Heres a link:
