Here is a new (to me) television show that I’m pretty excited about. Look Around You is a British spoof on early 1980s educational science shows, done in a deadpan style that is totally spot-on. (Anybody remember 321 Contact?) Most of the people I’ve mentioned it to haven’t seen it, so I thought I would post a clip here.
The show originally aired in the UK a few years back, and it’s now being shown in the US on Adult Swim. (The later episodes include a cast of friendly hosts, but I think I prefer the documentary-style episodes like the one above.)
