Look Around You - Modules 1 & 2.

Look Around You - Series 1.

All right, class. Take your seats and get ready to watch this educational film. Pay attention, because there will be notes afterward.

Please enjoy one of the funniest and most well-thought-out ideas in television history. It's no surprise that something like this would come from the UK.

Look Around You - Module #1 - "MATHS."

Look Around You - Module #2 - "WATER."

MODULE #3 & #4.

That is brilliant. (so far, dang this job)
I knew you'd dig it.

I'll be posting all 8 Series 1 Modules, twice a day all this week.

I've seen all of these quite a few times now, and each time I find a joke that I hadn't seen before. I couldn't even begin to explain how brilliant this show is.
I'm having to be careful so my employer doesn't walk in on me crying/laughing. I about lost it when he pulled up the test tube of orange juice to enjoy with his egg.
...Complete with his boiled and blistered hand.

One of the things I like about this series is, like most British comedy, they seamlessly weave the amazingly subtle with the absurdly over-the-top. You also need to be somewhat intelligent in the Science realm, and remember what it's like to have to watch these as a child.

It's about as close to a perfect comedy as I've ever seen.
Being at work, I need to know how long these clips are before I make the committment... A little help?
They are all 9 minutes each. Perfect for a coffee break.
As much as I would love to go to England, I do not understand their humour. I do, however, understand putting "u's" in unnecessary places.
What's not to understand about:

"Bless you, ants. Blants."

Thants for posting that, it made my day.

Those were so well done. It's definately the little things that get me. Like using his finger to point to the beaker and then his pinky to point to the bunsen burner.

I really was expecting a guest appearance by Dr. Marvin Candle.
The attention to detail is amazing. Besides the obvious over-the-top jokes, I defy you to show me something that doesn't fit into the late 70's-early 80's world.

I'll be putting these up all week, so stay tuned.
