is the message written with quill pen on parchment from the unknown antagonist -- a message that somehow connects the 5 completely different, yet creepy, protagonists of this series.
Twisted premise, twisted characters, ridiculously over the top nonsense, dwarf porn, this show has it all! Highly entertaining, very dark, comedy.
This show is a series of interrelated skits of disparate characters several of whom are played by Reece Sheersmith and Steve Pemberton who also brought us The League Of Gentlemen. Cross-dressing in the best traditions of British comedy, many cheap prosthetics, great accents, horrible haircuts.
Regarding the issues people have with playback ... from discussions with other people, it seems that there are one or two major brands of Blu-Ray players that have lots of trouble playing these "region free" disks produced in the UK. From what I've heard, Sony brand Blu-Ray players in particular simply won't play these disks. I have both an LG and a Samsung BD player, both are Region 1 only players and not 'all region' players, and they each play these disks without any problems. Odds are that most 'Region 1' players will play these disks just fine. Just not Sony.
