Elwood and Lackey each month challange each other to watch episodes of cult and obscure TV shows.
TV Good Sleep Bad #31 - The Twilight Zone
You are entering the vicinity of an area adjacent to a location. The kind of place where there might be a monster, or some kind of weird mirror. These are just examples; it could also be something much better….this is the TV Good Sleep Bad Twilight Zone special!!
On this episode:
Eye of the Beholder – Season 2 Ep: 6
Janet Tyler has just undergone her eleventh treatment in her attempts to look normal, but what horrors lie under the bandages, especially with the doctors referring to her face as a “Pitiful twisted lump of flesh” and just why do we never see the faces of the doctors treating her?
The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street – Season 1 Ep: 22
The quiet suburb of Maple Street is thrown into chaos as mistrust grows between the residents when a roar and flash of light turn off the power to the street with the exception of one house. Are there aliens amongst them or is it pure paranoia?

TV Good Sleep Bad #29 - Animaniacs / Inside No. 9

In this episode, we discuss:
Animaniacs Episode 2 + 3 (1993): It's time to learn the countries of the world, what Switzerland is famous for and were squirels hide thier nuts as Elwood introduces Lackey to the rapid fire quipping world of the Animaniacs.
Inside No.9 episode 2, “A Quiet Night In” (2014): Since we started the show Lackey has talked about this show....now finally we watch it.
Created by Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen) here they pay homage to silent cinema as a pair of cat burglers whose attempts to steal a painting goes wildly astray.
TV Good Sleep Bad #28 - Fringe / Apaches
Elwood and Lackey return with another double dose of cult TV goodness this time kicking off with "Fringe" a show dismissed by some as an "X Files" cash in, the guys argue why this show was so much more.
Rounding out this double bill is the 1977 public infomation film "Apaches" by John Mackenzie who would go on to direct the classic Brit gangster flick "The Long Good Friday". Here though he teaches us about farm safety as a group of kids repeatidly find ever more unique way to meet thier demise.

Finally its time to hit the streets for a shock expose of the UK drugs scene, as comedy anarchist Chris Morris' faux current affairs show tackles the subject of drugs in his always unique way.
