“Imagine a world where Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding hadn’t been able to bring the trippy, unhinged delights of ninja delivery men, demon pensioners and crazy, drug-addled foxes to our screens. A tragic thought, isn’t it?”

Re-reblogged for oohyeah’s comments. Had this show not happened, and therefore not been picked up by American cable, I would have fallen into a (metaphorical) black hole sometime in 2009.

So really, saving BBC3 doesn’t only matter from the standpoint of indie comedy and quality, original programming—there’s a much bigger human impact than can’t easily be measured only by ratings, you know?
