“My name is Dr. Lovett… and this is my Asylum”

Oooh. I’ve heard about Asylum before – mentioned on the Spaced DVD, it’s the first time Pegg/Wright/Stevenson all worked together, and one of the characters was part of the inspiration for Brian – but I didn’t know that the brilliant David Devant and his Spirit Wife were the resident “house band”, nor that the proprietor of the titular asylum was none other than… Norman Lovett. Anyway, in the absence of any sort of DVD release, some kind soul has stuck the whole thing online. Haven’t actually had a chance to see if it’s any good yet, but it certainly seems worth a gander…

  1. My god this is actually quite good! Going off the first episode anyway. With the Norman opening I was expecting it to be a whole lot worse (is it even possible to take him seriously as being ‘sinister’?). It’s like the premise for a crappy gameshow or something. But as it goes on it’s pretty entertaining, funny, disturbing in places and well written. I particularly liked the grandma/grandad bit and the standup.

    Is it wrong that I want to have sex with Jessica Stevenson as the nurse?

  2. No, it isn’t. I’ve always had a soft spot for Jess.

  3. Me too.

    Jessica Stevenson was much hotter when she was chubby. Fact.

  6. > Jessica Stevenson was much hotter when she was chubby. Fact.

    Seconded.

  7. Thirded.

  8. Though for ‘chubby’ please read ‘size of a normal human being’.

  9. It’s the ‘Cutting Edge!’ line in Spaced 1.2 that does it for me.

  10. Hello, friends!

    It’s been a long time and I’ve REALLY missed all of you on here. I’ve been in the throes of moving house and lots of other things so this is the first time I’ve had the ‘net for about 6 months.

    Be seeing you xx

  11. I’ve only managed to watch the first episode but it’s easy to see how Pegg & Stevenson stoodout.

    >Jessica Stevenson was much hotter when she was chubby. Fact.

    Yep
