5.0 out of 5 stars Varied, imaginative, funny , a little bit dodgy and dark, 8 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Man To Man with Dean Learner [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Well done to the two stars of this show. I liked Darkplace so took a chance on this. Matthew Holness's work puts me in mind of those actors like Alec Guinness who take on multiple roles. I believed it. Being a musician, I loved the folk singer character. It is unsettling the way that Dean is subtly implicated in the misfortunes that many of his guests have suffered, whilst he was managing their careers - it is implied he is responsible for a near-fatal accident that befalls one of them. I like that sort of touch - it shows a lot of thought has gone into the background. These things are there for the viewer if they're interested.
It takes the mick out of the talk show format, espacially that element of having guests who have no discernible achievements to speak of, save that of having something to sell - I always disliked that.

As this has got me in the mood, when is the BBC putting out some of the classic PARKINSON episodes for us to buy, from back in the 70's when we had some real Hollywood actors and celebrities? I wait patiently - until I don't.
It was driving me insane but now that I have figured it out, I can add this in. The guest called Amir Chanan talks like a female actress and I couldn't place the accent, until recently. I believe he is channelling Elke Sommer.
