Garth Marenghi's Darkplace (UK Channel 4 2004)
« on: February 28, 2013, 11:16:22 AM »


Quote
Garth Marenghi's Darkplace is a British dark comedy show made for Channel 4 by Matthew Holness and Richard Ayoade. Following on from Garth Marenghi's Netherhead, which won the 2001 Perrier Awards, the show revolves around fictional horror author Garth Marenghi (played by Holness) and his publisher Dean Learner (played by Ayoade).

Darkplace is presented as a lost classic: a television series produced in the 1980s, though never broadcast at the time. The presentation features commentary from many of the "original" cast, where characters such as "Marenghi" and "Learner" reflect on making the show. Darkplace parodies numerous aspects of '80s low-budget television, including fashion, special effects, production gaffes, and music, as well as the widespread practice of including commentary tracks on DVD releases of old films and television shows.

I'm sure there has to be one or two fans of this show around these parts.

I used to love watching this - A shame the series was so short.

Yes, only six episodes :( They are all available on 4OD or 4OD's youtube page though.
