Jam (Thursdays, March-April, C4)

By Chris Darke, 10 July 2000

After banishment to R1, where he perfected the ketamine-dosed trip-hop ambience of Blue Jam, Chris Morris’s return to TV is definitive comic-horror for the surveillance generation. Trading less in punchlines than straight-faced, drip-fed panic, Jam is truly experimental cross-media comedown comedy. Written, directed and produced by Morris, this is auteur-TV. Someone give the man a movie.
