Julian Barratt and Tim Hope invented an imaginary band, "The Pod" in the 90s, and created an animated series of adventures for them. It's more interesting and quirky than laugh-out-loud funny. I loved it, but I would. The plot is that Barratt and Hope are a techno outfit who tour small community centres with their blazing music of the future.

The bit I liked best was when Julian and Tim made toast. They have all these crazy adventures where they save the world through the pure transforming power of techno, yet I liked it best when they were in the flat, just making toast. It was the contrast between their bizarre talk of stripping the flesh and the white heat of modernity and the reality of their beaten up surroundings with daily discussions about whose turn it was to buy the brown bread.

Julian: "Techno is an aesthetic of amazing tranformative power! It's a missile of truth hurtling towards the future!"

Tim: "Well, anyway. I'm going to have some toast."
