I Am Not an Animal [DVD]
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
All six episodes from the first season of the BBC's controversial animated comedy series about a group of animals - a horse, a cat, a sparrow, a monkey, a rat and a dog - who have the power of speech and rational thought. The animals live in the luxurious 'club class' wing of a secret vivisection laboratory. Pampered and clothed unlike any lab animals in history, fed vintage wine and exquisite food, they are blissfully unaware of the real world outside - until one cruel night when they are brutally liberated into their so-called natural surroundings by a gang of animal rights activists... Voice talent includes Steve Coogan, Simon Pegg and Julia Davis.

As Philip the horse said about Mark the sparrows music career while he and the rest of them were talking to cut outs of lots of celebrities; 'At least we live in the real world!'
It veers from the surreal and absurd to sharp satire and back again without batting an eye.
I don't want to say too much as it will spoil gags by giving them away, and you won't get the benefit of the visuals and voices. I would say that the first episode while ok, is by no means the best, but as the series progresses you will be treated to delights such as an Irish call-centre rabbit, a middle-class bulldog called Winnona and a rightwing sparrow who's stage-name is Glen Belt...
The best episode by far is "a star is hatched". It's worth buying just for that one.
Well I know what some of my friends will find in their Christmas stockings this year, strange looks indeed!
The only thing I would say is that the first episode isn't hugely funny; if I'd only seen that one I wouldn't have been inclined to watch anymore. The best episode is number 5 simply because of Mark the sparrow's hilarious storyline and the quote "i am the manbird of alcatraz." Absolutely brilliant.
deserves to be a cult. .
