    Did anyone here watch Garth Marenghi's Dark Place? Just did a quick search of the forums and came up surprisingly blank.

    Surely none of you missed this wonderful channel four offering? Featuring such wonderful lines as:

    "He was part young boy and part grasshopper, he never stood a chance"

    "Watch out! He's got a stick"

    "If I had no ink I would write on my heart...it wouldn't be an ideal way of working"

    Just to provide you with some vague insight Dark Place

    Not to my knowledge, although I'm a bit rusty so it's entirely possible...let me check.

    Yes!

    I watched it!

    There was a thread about it a few weeks ago though.
    Has the forum search thing been fixed?

    Twas class.

    Dean Learner (I think he was called) was the best,

    After blowing 4 holes in the roof with a shotgun:
    "I'm trying to run a hospital here!"

    Clearly not, but I might just ignore you for suggesting I might be a bit rusty and would inadvertantly ignore somebody, would I do such a thing?

    I notice that in classic EG style that the thread diverted quite a lot from the subject \o/ go EG :D

    I thought it was excellent, best thing on TV for its short stint of six weeks, however I did think that was the perfect length considering its spoof nature. Hard to pick a favourite moment but I loved the Sanchez song in the last episode, pure genius.

    Dean Learner was the best, "beg your pudding" :D

    I do not, sadly I am a one system man and that system is PC and that system is also dating quickly!

    Love this show, hope a DVDs on the way
    I think Thornton Reed the hospital head is the real star. Its that squeaky voice, 'Damn it Dag ive got a hospital to run' and 'Hellooo beg ya puddin'

    Dr Sanchez voice is so seventies sounds like the dad out of thunderbirds.

    Sigh...just finished watching these for the squilionith time on 4OD - so short, and yet oh-so sweet. Each episode is perfection.

    I'd hate for them to tarnish it by trying to make more...but I do wish that they could have at least coughed-up one more series at the time.

    I'll always love Dean Lerner and his experience with KFC:

    "I said, the fuck you don't do wet wipes!"

    I wouldn't recommend watching the entirety of Aaaaaaaah! if I were you. I mean, it's not particularly offensive, but your time is much better spent watching the likes of Prevenge.

    Oh, I lost my DVD years ago - just ordered another one from Amazon for a few pennies. It's a great excuse to watch them all again.

    Thanks also for the film recommendations, SEM - both were on my radar at one point, errr, but I'd completely forgotten about them (shitty radar). Will watch Prevenge tonight!

    I think Matthew Holness had a second season planned but Channel 4 weren't up for it.

    Man to Man with Dean learner might count as tarnish-y.

    Dean Learner was a great character in Dark Place but Man To Man never clicked for me. I'd count it as tarnishy

    The main guy in that was also in another show, the title of which was a person's name. It eludes me at the moment. I'm trying to use search engines less frequently to keep my brain strong so I'll just have to keep thinking. In this other show he used the word "weapon" as an adjective: "That was well weapon."

    He also brilliantly played the boasting twat IT guy, briefly, in The Office.

    Matt Holness wasn't in Nathan Barley, but Richard Aoyade was.

    Either way, it was well bum.
