User Reviews

One of the most underrated programme of all time!
22 August 2001 | by TheNorrisSee all my reviews

Seans Show was an off the wall TV programme shown on Channel 4 in the early 1990's. It created some of the most funniest lines ever

"That socks still not dry" "We're not that close".

In context they are hysterical.

One of the most memorable ideas on the show was that over the course of the first series was that the regular cast all got killed over a period of time. Then at the end of the second series they all came back as their "twins".

The funniest episode was the one where Windsor Davies knocked on the door and asked Sean if he could use Seans' bath to create a giant jelly (Jello) in it.

Pure insanity.
