Storyline

Garland Freewin, returning from an unexplained disapearance, hosts "The 5th Quadrant", a reality series which tells unique stories, which in fact spoof ones shown on series such as "Ripley's Believe it or Not!" and "The X-Files". Freewin has a trademark demeanour, smiling and rambling incessantly using various extended words, often being pompous and treating interviewees poorly, bluntly asking questions and making accusations, but always with an irresistible smile. The stories are always far-fetched and hilariously stupid, such as phony psychics, "legendary" beasts and spirits, and people with amazing claims with flimsy evidence, if any, to back themselves up.

Pretty Funny
17 March 2002 | by RaleonSee all my reviews

I like this show for its relunctance in poking fun at sci-fiction shows. It plays along the lines as Liography (practically the same thing except poking fun at shows like Psi-Factor instead of shows like Biography). Lee Smart is a quick and witty comedian. I've first seen him on Improv Heaven and Hell and liked him a little bit, but he's much better with this role. He fits in well with the fast pace humour of the show. It's a real must see for anyone who is tired of all those science fiction "Based-on-a-true-story-seriously,-I-was-there-and-seen it-with-my-own-eyes" type of shows. But it does have a down side; just like Liography, the show gets old very quickly. It's best to see a few episodes, take a break, and see new ones every once on a while.
