The Crystal Cube (parts 2, 3, and 4) [mlytp]

Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie had another project before doing A Bit of Fry and Laurie. The BBC was not expecting scientific, but fake, documentary style by the two comedians, so it was canceled after the first episode. [wikipedia]

It's less educational than Look Around You (which, surprisingly, is now on Adult Swim on Sunday nights)?

Kisses lead to explosions.

The deep-targeting of YouTube links will become increasingly popular. You heard it here first!

Laurie has good comic timing, but Fry is the better actor. However, they are both put to shame by Thompson.

Ha, thank you. :) We've just finished watching Alfresco, which also has Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, Emma Thompson, Robbie Coltrane, etc., doing sketch comedy in about the same period as this. There's something delightful about seeing Emma Thompson in floofy miniskirts and spandex leggings, haha. It's even available in the US as a set of 2 DVDs.

isn't that ribbed tunnel in the opening sequence one of those bomb-shelter tunnels that was up for sale recently?
