PROTECTION AND PARENTHOOD

After last week’s reserved return gave us an opportunity to reacquaint ourselves with Munty’s main players (2.1 – “The Trial” reviewed HERE), Zapped bursts to life in series two’s sophomore instalment, “Magic Darts,” which sees stranded modern-day office temp Brian Weaver (James Buckley) take a crash course in conjuring from dubious “licenced mage” Howell (Paul Kaye), in order to keep himself from further harm in this medieval fantasy land.

PIE AND HAMMER

Expanded from last year’s water-testing micro-run (click the following links for my 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 reviews), digital channel Dave’s original fantasy sitcom makes a welcome return next week, once again nestled in a post-Red Dwarf XII Thursday night slot. “The Trial” follows directly on from “Mr. Wuffles”‘s cliffhanger ending, in which modern day office temp-out-of-water Brian Weaver (James The Inbetweeners Buckley) has inadvertently pissed off a legion of shell-backed Snail people by kicking their ambassador, which he had mistaken for a football.

BALD MOVE

The middle episode of Dave’s new mini-com transmitted on the “home of witty banter” after Red Dwarf XI‘s “Krysis” last Thursday night, a full fortnight after Zapped‘s premiere was available to preview on UKTV Play.
