I decided to start watching this series, because my friend relentlessly quotes it, and I'm never in on the joke.

It is literally one of the funniest things ever.

"I found I was being chased by a stapler that had my name on it"
"As I rounded the corner, I felt muscular and compact, like corned beef"

I must warn you, it's very 'English.'

Oh, and it has three of the actors from 'the mighty boosh' in it (the funnier ones).

Wow, you're only about 5 years too late.

I disagree on this part mainly because Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding barely do anything in the episodes. Dag is too awesome for words though.
The DNA results show that Jeremy Kyle is a nob.

I was referring to julian barrett, richard ayoade and matt berry.

I watched every episode in one setting back in the days when I was on Virgin Media.

"How about a pork pie sausage roll?"

"Here, let me cut up your pork pie..."

Genius.

Do it.

Seriously, I saw it on tv 1st time around and a friend got it for my 21st, I've watched it about 4 times over since.

I like it, it's really cultish and wierd though. I only really remember Scotch Mist. But it was great.

He does. Have you heard his music too?
#18
I remember I used to stay up late and watch it on Channel 4, absolutely hilarious. Might watch some now actually.

It took 3 seconds of Episode 2 before I cracked up.
there is no fear in this heart.

I LOVE this show.

I think my favorite moment is where they're at that funeral, and the guy comes back from the grave, and Garth and Dean just randomly get a shitload of guns.

You see Dean standing behind Garth at first, and they keep randomly flashing over to him firing a shotgun into the air.


Gotta love that moment.

I actually saw him at at student union last year :O.

He drank a bottle of vodka straight fairly quickly =/. It was alright.

Too bad it got canceled


I think they just never made another. I doubt it was cancelled because they brought out Man to Man with Dean Learner which I haven't seen yet (Is it any good?).

^Yeah, I don't think it was cancelled either. Just never re-commissioned or the writers moved on.

I saw bits and pieces of Man to man with Dean Learner. Pretty much the same cast as Dark Place, pretty funny too.

See if you can find the trailer for "War of the Wasps" on youtube, a fictional film starring the Dark Place cast that was "promoted" on man to man.

I have this on DVD, it's absolutely hilarious. None of my friends seem to get why it's so funny.

'Exhausted, they collapsed onto a recently extended sofa bed, then, a hell beast ate them.' *closes book*

haha
NOPE.

i loved the eye child
2 ducks and a rabbi walk into a bar.
The rabbi enjoys a nice drink and the ducks are shooed out so that health services aren't called in.
The day proceeds as normal.

OMG i love Darkplace!

"With this show, I wanted people to laugh and cry... and **** themselves all at the same time."
#34
Have any Darkplace fans seen Ray Bradbury's Theatre? It comes on Zonehorror now, it's like Darkplace only taking itself seriously

Easily one of the greatest shows of all time. Such a shame there were so few episodes
My signature is stupid.
#37
Yeah, I really wanna find the DVD of it. I'll have to go to the store tomorrow.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

It's absolutely awesome.

"Och....kill.......daglass.....mon"

"What does it mean?"

"I know 'mon' means man but I don't think 'och' means anything"
"Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care"

I love it! "There was green gas pouring out of the air vents. I figured it might have something to do with the cloud of green gas hovering over the hospital"

I love the bit with the stapler chasing Dag down the corridor too.
