My god, you didn't used to work for Channel 4 about 25 years ago did you? That's exactly the sort of whimsical, god-awful crap they used to put out in the UK. Although I might have watched it for Cook and Moore. wink

lol. No, I haven't worked for Channel 4. Although, I can't wait to visit England one day. Television over here in the states can get very "over-saturated" with choices. Sometimes, these are good choices.

I was reminded recently of how much I missed Moore and Cook - not necessarily together, mind you. But the thought of taking some of my favorite actors and mixing them up in this sort of wacky romp is amusing. The same with American actors.

The Ann Heche movie SHITAKE sounded so ludicrous to me that, in ten years, I could see such a movie coming to fruition.

I like to see interesting things take shape - even if they are horrible.
