At a Save the Throck meeting Brian meets the beautiful Effandra and, when Howell accidentally releases a fire sprite with the ability to grant one wish, Brian wants to use it to return home with Effandra. Howell also wants it to escape the wrath of Slasher Morgan but when Effandra's sickly pet throck, Mr Wuffles, needs healing, Brian decides to do the altruistic thing and save it. However the wish is ultimately wasted with Brian ending up in Effandra's bad books and with no hope of going home. Written by don @ minifie-1

Mr Wuffles
18 November 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

In the final episode of this short series Brian is still looking for a way to try and get back home. Kicking a snail like shell as a football will not bring him home fast.

The amulet now seemingly out of his reach Brian finds another unexpected opportunity. A fire sprite (voiced by and looking a lot like Steve Coogan) is willing to grant him a wish in exchange for his freedom.

Brian could go home but then suddenly he meets a beautiful woman called Effandra who likes him but when her beloved throck is injured he is left with a dilemma. Stay behind with Effendra and use the wish to bring the throck back to good health.

In the meantime the pub is doing a roaring trade with the new sausage making machine but the furniture is getting used up in the process.

Another wavering episode which did improve as it went along. Nice to see Coogan support a show made by his production company but the whole show does feel a bit uneven.

The makers expressed that Zapped is a cross between Red Dwarf and Blackadder and both those shows had a disappointing first series as well. Maybe Zapped will return with a bang.
