News flash from Shitsu Tonka Inc.
10 August 2004 | by toxiemiteSee all my reviews

Daas Kapital remains one of the funniest and most original series to air on Australian television.

For those familiar with The Doug Anthony All Stars, then you would have a pretty good idea what you are in for. For all you other's out there this is a program packed with energy, musical numbers, puppetry, news flashes, genies in boxes, a cockroach named 'Ross' and so so so much more.

It's pretty hard to come by, as it has yet to be released on DVD (Praying for that to happen) and it hasn't even been released on VHS. It might pop up on Cable TV here and there... but otherwise it is a lost treasure.

For those not sure what the hell it is.... well it can best be described as a break-loose 'Red Dwarf' kind of thing. 3 guys living on the 'Titanic 2', an abandoned submarine containing all kinds of government documents. Also on board are Flacco the Geanie, Bob the Psychotic, Bob Downe, lots of cockroaches and a live audience..... it's all irrelevant tho, as these 3 guys sing and dance, fight, and turn in to all kinds of psychos, cockroaches and French Men..... hell, even Mexican Hitlers.

See it, you wont regret it. There are 2 seasons worth, every minute a gut buster.

I give it 10 out of 10.
