She wants to be... someone. The bright lights of London are calling, and our determined hero sets off to find out who that someone is.The London she encounters is not as quite as swinging as the one she'd read about and seen on TV. However, after a series of setbacks Barbara finds herself in unfamiliar territory - an audition for a TV comedy show.

PopetownPopetown
Channel 4, 2005 Cancelled/Ended | Comedy, Adult, Animation

This is a cartoon with obvious parallels to Vatican City and the Catholic Church. But on the other hand, there are also many differences. Firstly, it's Popetown, not Vatican City. Secondly, the 'Pope' is a very young boy (who sounds like a girl), with all the character flaws and immaturity of youth, unlike the real-life scenario where Popes have typically been elderly men (the youngest Pope in history was reported to be about 18, although there is debate and uncertainty about that).

BBC Three, 1998 Cancelled/Ended | Comedy, Drama, Adult Cartoons, Animation
Rating: 3/5

Eric Feeble is a middle-class divorced father of two who resides in London, England. An average man, with a less than average life, Eric is endlessly at his wits end - stressed out with his family, coworkers, and his life in general. For starters, there's his children. His precocious daughter, Claire is allergic to everything, from peanuts to dolls and everything in between. Eric's toadish son, Brian, sticks everything into his mouth that he can get his hands on. The family's live-in au pair, Maria, is a drunken nymphomaniac with a bad habit of disappearing for days at a time. Eric's ex-wife, Liz, is a whiny psycho who's involved in every kind of "rights" act imaginable, from "animal rights" to "tree rights" to Buddhism. Just to make his oddball family dynamics look worse, the next door neighbours are the aptly named Perfects, who are wealthy and snobbish.
