Trivia

Throughout the series there are repeated references to Robert Lessing's experience aboard the Medusa which contributed to his 'affliction' and his corresponding refusal to discuss his trauma. It seems likely, although with some historical complication, that this might be a reference to the wreckage of the Medusa (Méduse), a vessel that struck the Bank of Arguin and inspired the painting 'Raft of the Medusa' by Théodore Géricault. The evacuating passengers of the vessel were lost in a panic; many drowned, some rebelling drunkards were shot by officers, and the rest were forced into cannibalism in order to survive. If Lessing survived his experience adrift of the Medusa, the implication is that he must have engaged in cannibalism. See more »

Underrated Gem!
8 October 2020 | by WatchAndSmileSee all my reviews

Can't believe there wasn't like 10 seasons of this. Hurts me when dumb tv shows that are copies of each other get renewed and this one died after 1 seasons. Brilliantly written and played. This is 10/10. Very funny and interesting!
