 Look Around You: Season One

  Review by Suzanne 7/15/10

This is a British show that spoofs old educational programming from the 70's and 80's.  I guess if you are British and familiar with those shows, you will find this hilarious. For me, it is way too slow and deadpan. I didn't find it funny, just boring.  Oh, and people who are really into things like math will enjoy it.

I guess other people think it's funny, like Monty Python, but I didn't really see that comparison.  Frankly, I had trouble even viewing the extras because they were too dull.

It has one feature that is "double length" and about Calcium. There are commentaries as well, and a few games and other features.

I'm sorry, I have to go to sleep now...just writing this review has made me doze off!

Here is some more information about the show:

 Coming up is the long-awaited July 20th DVD release of the critically acclaimed comedy series, Look Around You: Season One. From creators Robert Popper (Peep Show, Hot Fuzz), and Peter Serafinowicz (Couples Retreat, Shaun of the Dead), Look Around You explores the nonsensical wonders of science as presenters Jack Morgan (Popper) and Peter Packard (Serafinowicz) guide viewers through a series of Pythonesque spoofs of educational films of the 70's and 80's.

First premiering on BBC America, and subsequently aired on Adult Swim, the series has been praised by Matt Groening (creator of The Simpsons), as "one of the funniest shows I've ever seen," and hailed by Wired as a "nonsensical blast from the past." In addition to the hilarity of the eight Season One episodes, the DVD includes newly recorded commentaries by Robert Popper, Peter Serafinowicz, Tim Kirkby, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Edgar Wright, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Michael Cera, Jonah Hill and Tim & Eric.
