Rated TBC by the BBFC


Complete first series of the sitcom penned by the creators of 'Father Ted' and 'Big Train' that takes an affectionate look back to the heady days of 1969. Simon Pegg is Ray Purbbs, editor of an underground magazine (not unlike 'Oz') called 'Mouth'. His friends are proto-feminist Jill (Sally Phillips), laid-back Alex (Julian Rhind-Tutt), and dim-witted Hugo (Darren Boyd). The script parodies various films and events of the era, such as 'The Graduate', 'Hair' and the Oz obscenity trial. Episodes comprise: 'Protesting Hippies', 'Hairy Hippies', 'Sexy Hippies', 'Hippy Dippy Hippies', 'Muddy Hippies' and 'Disgusting Hippies'.
