Funland (TV Series)


UK 2005, 360 minutes
Genres: Television, Drama, Comedy / Cult TV


Aroview: A dark-edged 'comedy' from the creators of LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN, this true original melds surreal humour and coarse drama in equal parts, situating its village mystery in the deceptively placid seaside resort of Blackpool, a legalised gambling haven that's home to a seedy underbelly of amoral townsfolk with hidden agendas and sordid pasts.

Distinctly juggling bizarre storylines and a larger-than-life cast of players – the central character of which is the town of Blackpool itself – this as a throwback to the freak-out Americana of TWIN PEAKS demands its own cult following, both as a genuine oddity and a weirdly iconoclastic vision. Like the David Lynch TV series, it also revels in its unusual, sometimes incomprehensible nature.
