Cult series in the making
5 August 2010 | by smacktalker62See all my reviews

This show first appeared two years ago, it is one of the greatest examples of black comedy and satire to appear on Australian television, and there are always great cameos from local celebrities and actors. The premise of the show is that Myles Barlow (Phil Lloyd) receives problem letters from viewers, and then investigates the merits of an element of their question and gives it a score out of five. Make sense?

For instance, in series one he received a letter that involved the theme of risk, so to test out its' merits he went to Thailand to mule drugs back into Australia. Things that have been reviewed include divorce, racism, addiction and murder, these sequences are shot like short mockumentaries and are always messed up. Another highlight are the ridiculous analogies and metaphors that he uses to describe the experience he has just undergone.

The humor is deadpan and twisted, the direction always note-perfect. Definitely worth checking out if you like black comedy and are not averse to being offended. I can only hope that once production ceases (hopefully not for a while) this show will really gather a cult following and thus reach a greater audience on DVD.
