Image of the week: Phoo Action!

Aww, man. Did anyone else catch this show on BBC Three last night?

I’m talking about Phoo Action – a completely bonkers comic strip based concept involving mutants, a kung fu cop, and the monarchy. Not to mention a hot-pants wearing chosen one, and – the reason I’m bringing it up here – a Lancia Stratos replica as the ‘Phoo Mobile’.

How cool is that? A freaking Lancia Stratos! It gets plenty of screen time, too, including a moment when it drives itself…

If you didn’t catch the show, and you like things a little bit off the wall, you should check it out. Think The Green Hornet meets The Mighty Boosh. Or something.

Only a pilot so far – and part of a season of six new dramas – there are repeats all through the BBC Three schedule at least until the 17 February. Or you can watch it online, and even download it using the BBC iPlayer (both for a limited time only – so don’t blame me of those links don’t work).

Anyways, here is the Phoo Mobile:

The two characters standing next to it are Terry Phoo (the kung fu cop, played by Eddie Shin) and Whitey Action (the other protagonist, played by Jamie Winstone. Yes, she is indeed Ray Winstone’s daughter).

The whole thing is based on characters created by Jamie Hewlett (of Gorillaz and Tank Girl fame) for a comic strip in The Face. It’s produced by Matthew Read, and directed by Euros Lyn.

Bravo all. This is exactly the sort of crazy thing I want to see on digital TV. Got to use all those channels for something. Isn’t New Media great?
