Product Description

All six episodes of the surrealist BBC comedy sketch show set in a parallel universe in which special effects are part of everyday life and the impossible can (and regularly does) happen. Combining the talents of Britain's funniest writers and performers with the technological wizardry of the show's no-holds-barred CGI animation team, the series creates a world in which superheroes, time travellers, wizards, robots and giants casually go about their business amid the daily irritations of earthquakes, floods, tidal waves, battles, crashes and alien invasions.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2.4 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: It's a world where action heroes, superheroes, time travellers, evil villains, wizards, robots, giants, dinosaurs, aliens, zombies and monsters casually go about their business amongst the daily irritations of explosions, disasters, earthquakes, floods, tidal waves, battles, chases, crashes, alien invasions and stunts. With effects software increasingly accessible outside expensive post production facilities, 'The CGI Sketch Show' allows writers access to technologies previously only available to the mega budgets of commercials and Hollywood movies. The result is a sketch show in which literally anything can happen. Combining great comedy with big name guests, unimaginable locations and impossible effects this series aims to punch through the noise of the digital landscape and break new ground in ambition, scope and technology. Combining the talents of Britain's funniest writers and performers with the technological wizardry of their CGI team, 'The CGI Sketch Show' heralds a brave new world of comic possibility. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: BAFTA Awards, ...The Wrong Door - Complete Series

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated ! 15 Sep 2010
Format:DVD
Criminally overlooked at the time, this is one that really should have made more of a splash.

For 6 episodes it combined some genuinely inventive ideas with CGI effects (not Hollywood standard but good enough.)
An unsuitable boyfriend is portrayed as a Tyrannosaurus Rex who eats the family dog when visiting the parents; a waiter advises against ordering the 'Death by Chocolate' for the reason that it always ends in the diner being killed by a chocolate ninja; Brian Blessed leads city-commuters/turned pirates in railway battles where ships are replaced by ships attacking each other along the branch lines.

The large cast restrain themselves from overacting and although at least one episode falls flat, they all demand repeat viewing. It's surprisingly subtle - look out for Perky Girl geeing herself up for the Xfactor style suditions in Super Hero Tryouts.

Also includes a fair ration of swearing, smut and gore for the coarser viewer.

There probably won't be another series so give this one a go.
