I cannot honestly tell you why, but last night I decided to watch the first episode of Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, and ended up watching four in a row. This was after watching several episodes of The Sopranos. Darkplace is a surprisingly natural chaser to a mostly serious, violent drama about the mafia.
Darkplace is a six episode comedy show that originally came out in 2004 on Channel 4. It is presented as a rerun of some episodes of a lost, low-budget horror show from the 80s, written by and starring cult horror author Garth Marenghi - a sort of Twilight Zone rip-off set in a hospital. The show as it aired in 2004 frames this as a totally real archival treasure, and there are occasional talking heads discussing the making of Darkplace from Garth and his publisher Dean Learner.
To this day it is, and I cannot overstate this, one of the funniest things ever created by god or man.
