This is Jinsy
This is Jinsy is a strange comedy series and is reminiscent of Monty
Python and for me, maybe a touch of Kenny Everett and Little Britain. It
also has shades of parallels to The League of Gentlemen with the bizarre
and sometimes creepy characters, however with the PG rating, it's
definitely considerably tamer. Set on a fictional island, This is Jinsy
follows the exploits of two of the islands inhabitants, Maven (Justin
Chubb) and Sporall (Chris Bran) who get into all sorts of mischief with
their self-imposed situations being quite comedic at times.
eight episodes included in this release, the first episode introduces
the major players to the series that includes Maven, the Island's
arbiter and his assistant Operative Sporall who attempt to protect the
island from its dictator, The Great He. However apart from the
"dictator", each episode focuses on an aspect of the island and more
importantly how Maven attempts to handle the situations that they find
example, the first episode revolves around the Wedding Lottery which is
a popular wedding traditional on the island where individuals are
randomly married off to other inhabitants. As Sporall is lacking love in
his life, Maven decides to enter Sporall into the lottery which creates
some amusing situations. It's definitely situational comedy at its best
and it stars an almost unrecognisable (at times) David Tennant as Mr.
Slightlyman, the local celebrity who hosts the lottery.
whacky door to door salesmen, rock groups who make fun of Maven and a
very amusing drunken cartographer, This is Jinsey is a comedy that can
be watched by people of all ages as you become drawn into this strange
island and even stranger individuals that may even give you a few
nightmares. Entertaining to say the least with some great cameos that
include David Tennant, Brian Murphy (from George & Mildred) and the
delightful KT Tunsall for starters!
