Jaaaaaaaam!

Just bought Jam the other week, saw that there wasn't a forum for it (unless there is one...somewhere) and just wondered if anyone else has seen it. I read it was dark and thought it would be League style kind of jolly dark but then I saw the beginning bit with the ambulance and I had trouble sleeping that night. But after more watching I really enjoyed it especially the 'Mr. Lizard' sketch. 'Ooh astonishing sod ape' :shock:

I have it on video but have no video player to play it on. Bloody love it so much. Love the lizard sketch as well and also the baby thats been turned into a boiler that Kevin Eldon has to come round and fix. Its a real *beep* but brilliant and superbly dark! :D

Ooh Jam is brilliant. Chris Morris is a genius. Have you heard Blue Jam, the origianl radio show, alot of the same sketches but some different ones....I LOVE the Suicide Journalist.

Is Blue Jam the one with the really scary picture of Julia Davis on the front?

I've never seen Jam but someone told me it was better than Brass Eye, which I love. I really need to get this.

No probs Chez!

Ohh! Salad fingers, that is creeeepy but I like it :mrgreen: Jam/Blue Jam are probably the only comedys to genuinely shock me a bit, and I have quite e high shock threshold. I think I've said on another thread that with J/BJ it's sometimes about how the material is presented rather than the material itself...if they were filmed more like a trad sitcom/sketch show they wouldn't seem as scary. Only sometimes though- some bits are genuinely > :shock: , but that is gooooooood!

Its what i call clever comedy. Not only does it make you feel guilty about lauighing, but it makes you think when you watch and ask yourself why do i watch!

Are all the sketches on Blue Jam cause stuff like the doctor or Kilroy wouldn't work without seeing. Also do they have the weird monolouge thing at the beginning or were those new and all?

As me and Chez were saying- it is surprising which sketches work on radio.

It's not like The Boosh radio show, or On The Town as it was originally broadcast late on Radio 1 I think, and is 21 tracks of various length. A couple of the doctor sketches are there, as is the 'bad sex' one from TV (whack my bonobo) and the unphased parents...the porn one with the *ahem* 'gush' I think it is called...also the acupuncture one. So yeah quite alot from TV really. They all work brilliantly IMHO on radio, I love the way Morris writes and you notice the language more....my personal all time favourite is Suicide Journalist....random quotes here-
"The thin man with Suzy coughed up a small laugh and spat it onto the grass...I'd say he looked like John Cusack...if I could remember who the hell John Cusack is."
"I could make a whole series about the things people bring to parties...I'd forgotten whether Suzy's house was opposite some trees or opposite no trees at all..."

The Jam DVD is so strange....on one DVD it has options to watch each episode normally, with a random effect like a lava lamp shape or something, or watch it back to front. Also there is the option to watch all of them simultaneoulsy :shock: Just watch out for the 'Forced Viewing' option :wink:

The other DVD is the same series but just with different/more extreme effects on it.

Let us know what you think when you've bought it. Also if you like Chris Morris he has done a short film called My Wrongs #874 to 2392 (or whatever the numbers are) which I bought recently- it is excellent- all about a man who's dog becomes his solicitor.
