Danger 5

Danger 5 is like the Thunderbirds meets The Champions meets Garth Marenghi and it’s lovely. There’s an attention to detail here: the camerawork, lighting, model work and performances are all spot-on in a 60s adventure show style. As funny as Garth Marenghi was, it always felt like it was parodying something that never actually existed, whereas Danger 5 is more akin to Police Squad – an affectionate, accurate and brilliantly funny spoof of a recognisable TV genre.

Not surprising it’s so accurate given that its creators, Dario Russo and David Ashby, were responsible for the rather excellent “Italian Spiderman” movie parody.

Oh, and it has stop-motion nazi dinosaurs in it so, you know, I’m kind of programmed to like it on a genetic level.
