This series has two notable characteristics which help to lower its already very low standard of production. The cast seem to contain no actors at all, at least not in the normal sense of the word. The ill-at-ease, badly timed, over-the-top vignettes, which strung together make up the whole of this production, are played with such self conscious amateurism that ultimately the result feels like an end-of-term primary school play. Secondly, there appears to be no director (or direction) of any sort. Physically there may actually have been a director present but he/she seems to be asleep at the wheel. The scenes produce an almost stream-of-consciousness chaos and most of the voice and body language are totally spontaneous and inappropriate. One almost yearns for that magic word: Cut! This is a triumph of sub-amateur film making at its best (or worst?).
