This sketch comedy came and went rather quickly and was critically drubbed at the time. Probably in accord with that, I remember only one segment, featuring a Christopher Lee-like vampire Count attempting to woo a victim at a typical Aussie backyard barbecue, being taken for a gatecrashing "wog" by the ocker hosts, wrathfully displaying his power over lightning and storm, and being repelled accidentally by brandished cruciform BBQ implements. I think that's about as inspired as it got. The cast, encompassing talented thesps like Noni Hazlehurst and Chris Haywood, had nothing to apologise for so who to blame? I would not mind a second, up-to-date viewing but this seems unlikely. Perhaps Australia's shortest-lived show of its type until LET LOOSE LIVE flashed through the Seven Network in 2005.
