Unlike last time’s Weekend Watching, this one’s something you’ll have to actually tune your TV to: this weekend (at the very enviable time slot of Sunday at 1am — set your Tivos, probably) will see the Adult Swim debut of BBC2 comedy Look Around You, an Offworld favorite from Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz.

A pitch perfect parody of yesteryear’s ‘technology of tomorrow, today’ programs (if you can follow the chronology there), I offer the most relevantly Offworld-ian bit above as a taste, and, once you’re finished with that, an emulated version of 80′s classic Diarrhea Dan, the F. Scott Fitzgerald-inspired toilet-based game featured in the clip.

  1. It looks like what Tim and Eric’s crap tastic show was trying to be, but done well. I’m watching!
