  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A sketch show shown on BBC 3 that seems, at least, to have been trying to do something new and creative. The show's distinguishing features are:

  • The lack of a fixed cast or characters with only the "Superhero Tryouts" judges being in every episode.
  • Several sketches that are parodies of other things, such as Njarnia, a parody of both Narnia and Ikea.
  • Attempting, with varying success to reach Pythonesque levels of surrealism.
  • The use of some element of CGI in almost every scene.

Some of it is genuinely hilarious, especially those scenes with CAPTAIN GOITIER of the Train Pirates, others can leave you feeling like the joke was on you.

Includes examples of:


  • Are We There Yet? - A favourite line of the Most Annoying Creature Ever.
  • BRIAN BLESSED - As The Captain of "The Train Pirates"
  • Incredibly Lame Pun - Don't order Death by Chocolate.
  • Ninja Vs Pirate - Vs Clowns
  • Weirdness Censor - A woman's family and friends don't seem to notice that her latest boyfriend is a carnivorous dinosaur. Even when he starts eating people, it causes no more than slight social awkwardness.
