Recommended Posts

Is anybody taking this political satire seriously ? I've only got halfway through the first episode of CGYOOMH and it reminds me of the style of Chris Morris - The Day Today.

The BBC voiceover in the style of Michael Palin is hilarious, and we 'learn' of the key role played by a Chinese actress in the 1930s (Shanghai Lil ?); a touring Soviet troupe of ballet dancers; the sex lives of Chinese revolutionaries; and a rich cast of characters. Rich fodder for conspiracy nuts...
