Time Trumpet (UK Satire – 2006)

A brilliant satirical series from Armando Iannucci – possibly his best standalone work. It’s too demanding of the average viewer (it took me years to appreciate), but when you are in the position to let it flow over you, it fuqn flows like that E4 shit-funneling conduit off of Stewart Lee, but not actually shit. *smug glow* *updated with full-fat dvd...
