I didn't reaslise just how popular the genius Chris Morris was, but since I've posted his other TV show DVD's today, I thought that I really should find the cheapest DVD of "Jam". This is the lesser known of his work, but nonetheless is still brilliant.

JAM is yet another disturbing dark comedy series from Chris Morris, the twisted genius behind the BRASSEYE and THE DAY TODAY. Spread over two discs, JAM avoids Morris's trademark satire in favour of a disorientating mixture of bizarre sketches and electronic music which probe the darker regions of the soul.

From wikepedia - "Jam is a British comedy television series created by Chris Morris. It was based on the earlier BBC Radio 1 show, Blue Jam, and consisted of a series of unsettling sketches unfolding over an ambient soundtrack.

Many of the sketches re-used the original radio soundtracks with the actors lip-synching their lines, an unusual technique which added to the programme's unsettling atmosphere.

The show was broadcast on Channel 4 during March and April 2000.

The cast included Amelia Bullmore, David Cann, Julia Davis, Kevin Eldon and Mark Heap. It was written by Chris Morris and Peter Baynham, with Jane Bussmann, David Quantick, Graham Linehan, Arthur Mathews and the cast. Chris Morris also stars in some sketches, although not as many as his co-stars.

The series consisted of six twenty-minute episodes, and, unusually for a TV show on a commercial channel, had no advert break in the middle. Some reports claim this was because no company would want their products associated with the show. However, Morris has said that he asked Channel 4 to broadcast it without a break in order not to spoil the atmosphere. [1]. The closing credits were also missing, replaced by a brief link to a website [1]. When the DVD of the series was released, the website changed and offered a link to a long sound file containing the thumping sound of heavy artillery, which it is suggested is played while watching the programme to simulate surround sound.

Jam is sometimes referred to as being "controversial", but in spite of containing scenes many would find quite disturbing (and prompting at least one article in the Daily Mail), it nonetheless did not receive the same outraged headlines as the Brass Eye episode on paedophilia Chris Morris produced the following year."

I'd agree with that. Brass Eye and The Day Today are far funnier than Jam. Jam is the darkest and most surreal of them all though.

The radio version of Jam, called 'Blue Jam', was much funnier than the tv series (and even darker). There were three radio series in all, they were broadcast in the mid and late 90s on Radio 4.

This is supremely f**ked up. Really, really dark - like the guy who gets back at his girlfriend by killing himself by jumping into a wood chipper with the 'spout' aimed at her window... Also half of it is in timestretch giving it a really drugged feel. Or the little girl who is a killer for hire. Just warped.
