Oh fantastic. The Goon episode is a spoof of Quatermass!
Eh? Are you referring to 'The Scarlet Capsule'? One of over a hundred Goon Shows that I have known.
That is the one. They aired it as part of the Radiophonic Workshop special to illustrate the Workshops contribution to the series - probably because it has lots of the workshops bangs, whistles, warbles and Bloodnock stomach noises on show.
Well I tried it and got to minute 28 before having enough. I shall persevere with the rest of episode 1 later. Hmmm. I usually love the writer's DW audios, but I'm finding it hard to care about the main characters. Also, they sound a bit similar vocally.
This guy is a genius. How he manages to switch between serious interview discussing current affairs to tongue in cheek dry humour about whatever without losing the weight of the parts of the show that require it I don't know.
If there's a Drop-the-Dead-Donkey-style current affairs briefing to set the scene prior to each episode it should be fine. I could have sworn John Oliver was a part of this show- did he join later?
"I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life were fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." — Marcus Cole, Babylon 5 — A Late Delivery from Avalon
