I love how they just interspersed clips of Dean shooting at... god only knows on the horizon.

And Garth shooting the mother.

And the flamethrower.

And Sanch dropping into a karate stance.

... So, really, everything.

The flamethrower's trigger are brass knuckles.

This show wouldn't work without the commentary from Garth, Dean, and Todd. Some of Garth's excuses for the show are inspired and almost persuasive, for example, how the bad forced perspective models on wires don't matter. "An eagle-eyed viewer might be able to see the wires. A pedant might be able to see the wires. But I think if you're looking at the wires you're ignoring the story. If you go to a puppet show you can see the wires. But it's about the puppets, it's not about the string. If you go to a Punch And Judy show and you're only watching the wires, you're a freak."

Bort, there are no wires in a Punch and Judy show.

Damn you, I was debating whether to be all pedantic about marionettes vs. puppets; this is what happens when I try not to be an asshole. NEVER AGAIN.

All these Darkplace slips are perfect, not only because of their content, but because I just found copies of the episodes online.

Also, the blatant disregard for continuity between shots.
Explodotron
er, clips not slips

Again, America needs DVDs.

STOP HOARDING THEM, YOU SELFISH LIMEY BASTARDS!

I like how Garth basically is Stephen King being Lars von Trier

Throw in some J. Michael Straczynski (the "Babylon 5" guy who can't even write a decent comic book these days) and my beard will approve.

Howard Moon is the priest! That guy from Look Around You is a guy standing around!

Also, from Matthew Holness' Wiki:
"Before he was on television, he played Bob Fossil and was the first choice for the role, however contract limitations between Channel 4 (Garth Marenghi's Darkplace) and the BBC (Mighty Boosh) saw Rich Fulcher take the role permanently, in The Mighty Boosh stage show. He is currently the only regular cast member (of six) from the TV version of Garth Marenghi's Darkplace who has yet to feature in the TV version of The Mighty Boosh. He is the only main character from Darkplace (of four) not to have appeared in The IT Crowd."

The more I read into this, the more I realize how only like 6 guys have been involved in almost all of my favourite shows.

He is the missing link between Mitchell and Webb and Mighty Boosh, being from Bruiser.

Tim & Eric got a budget?
CJH
i hope that's a fucking joke

chairsforcheap
such a goddamn great show
jimmicampkin
Nothing else to add.

This is so much funnier in the context of the entire episode.
Rudy
In Garth's defense, he was born with really long balls. We can only begin to contemplate how this affected his writing.
Pillager
That'll stop him.
