module six music
module seven iron
module eight the brain

i think that's all of series one, obviously module number is the episode number and the phrase following is the subject matter

sigh.

*Look Around You is a BBC television comedy series devised and written by Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz, and, in the first series only, narrated by Nigel Lambert. The first series of eight 10-minute shorts was shown in 2002, and the second series of six 30-minute episodes in 2005.

The first series was broadcast on BBC America in early 2005, with a slightly edited version of the second series airing in March 2006. The first series of Look Around You was nominated for a BAFTA award in 2003.

The episodes were a satire/homage of 1970s and early 1980s educational videos and schools programmes, with a different scientific subject being discussed in each episode, or "modules" as they are referred to in the series.* - wikipedia

maths and water best for sure i reckon...
maths is brilliant just for the kittens....


michael_horse  said about 8 years ago:

the maths one was ok


tilljames  said about 8 years ago:

HEB  said about 8 years ago:

It didn't really work when they expanded it to a 30 minute format.

Then again, it was spoofing a different era.
The first series was '70's, and the later one was 1980's.

Did Peter Serafinowicz's series World Of Pub make it to Australian TV? Originally a radio series, it featured Kevin Eldon[Big Train, Jam, Fist Of Fun, Hyperdrive] and Phil Cornwell [Stella Street, Dead Ringers]

Peter Serafinowicz was also a regular in Simon Nye's Hardware [not to be confused with the low-budget horror film of the same name]

Collaterly_Sisters  said about 7 years ago:

I picked up the first series for five pounds before I left the UK a couple of years ago. Bargain.
Is series two worth bothering with at all?

I spent literally minutes playing "diarrhea dan"

prerecorded  said about 7 years ago:

Tomorrow is the last day of the school term, and I'm currently making a copy of series 1 so my partner, who is a science/physics teacher can play some for his students in their slacking off classes.

I really hope they get it!

Awesome shit!


charlesincharge  said about 6 years ago:

unfortunately he died due to complications resulting from a bee sting to his anus.


my mrs showed it to some idiot friends in japan and the only thing they could say was 'mmmm, i LOVE casserole!'.

in other news, I went to a british comedy theme party and went as synthesiser patel.. i took a small casio keyboard with me and lots of people said they were going to steal it. which is a problem because they are so expensive and people are always trying to steal them.


sharptooth  said about 6 years ago:

there's something so utterly delightful and soothing about the ridiculousness of the first series..


LoadMyRig  said about 5 years ago:

watched the first series last night and blew a foofoo valve.

deliciously good.

MEDIBOT!


Modi  said about 5 years ago:

Peter Serafinowicz did all the music for this show, too. I am beginning to think he may be some kind of entertainment genius.

charlesincharge  said about 5 years ago:

I am beginning to think he may be some kind of entertainment genius.
